Holiday Inn Express, Kailua Kona
We stayed here for three nights from 20 to 23 May 18. It was one of the best stay during our two months’ tour.
Very good location. Very close to everything, but not on the main road. ABC store/ good restaurants of different cuisine are all within 2 to 10 minutes walk. Practically all amenities within walking distance. Airport shuttle not available.
But the best about the hotel is the staff who are always ready to help the guest. When we entered the hotel after a very long flight, the smile and the helping attitude of the lady at the front desk at that time (Sala) were awesome. In fact all the staff were extremely helpful always.
Room was very spacious. Beds very comfortable. Toiletries very good. Additional coffee/tea provided in the room if required. Service extremely good at all times. They were so good that if you ask for one item, they would give you five items.
Breakfast spread was ok. A little more variety will be better. Generally breakfast items finish off around thirty minutes prior closing time. Of course the staff tries to bring something. 24 hrs coffee available at the lobby.
Smoking is outside the hotel. Sitting arrangements with music make the smoking really pleasurable.
Wi-Fi available all over the hotel including room.
It has a decent gym and a small pool.
We will positively stay here if we return to Kona

What a great little place. Great location a block from the water. Nice little pool area with jacuzzi. Great little free breakfast in the morning. Rooms are spacious and has everything you need including microwave and fridge.

We spent our first night in Hawaii at the Holiday Inn Express. It was not far from airport and easy to get to. The location is great. Lots of restaurants,bars and shops within walking distance. The room was really spacious and clean. Would definitely stay again. I would consider it a good overall value. It’s not the cheapest hotel in Kona but it sure isn’t the most expensive.

Loved the location - you can walk all over! Very clean, friendly and great free breakfast. Will totally stay again. Loved the beachy feel of the area. The Big Island was our favorite and Kona was a perfect location.

Our whole family stayed in two large suites. The staff accommodated us well. Thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast & pool. We enjoyed the walks in town just a short block away. We stayed here a year and a half ago and decided to come back again. Not disappointed. Visited family in Hilo and stayed here again as we flew out of Kona. Great service!
