I stayed one night at this hotel. I arrived 2 hours before check-in and they allowed me to have my room. They were very accommodating. They gave me a breakfast voucher for the restaurant next door (which I loved). My room was clean. The carpet was green and gave me a 60s vibe. I can't really give it a five...

My Dad and I stayed here twice in 2014 and once in 2015 on our annual winter trip. We were very happy both stays. The rooms are modest, but comfortable and clean. The decor is a bit dated but we have found we prefer older style to modern. Breakfast at the neighbouring restaurant is included and very satisfying. Walking distance...

This is a good hotel for proximity to the airport. We chose it for our first night after a long day of travel. The rooms are clean, bed comfy, the pool area is nice too. We also stayed here on our last day in Hawaii before a night flight out. That time we had a great room on the top...

I am not picky nor do I stay in 5 star hotels regularly but I think this hotel is crazy too expensive for what they offer. Additional fees for parking. Dated rooms. And to top it all off - I had to kill not one but tow cockroaches in my room. They told me I could check in after 3...

The room was priced expensively for the size of the beds and amenities. No coffee in lobby or breakfast provided. Parking is $5 and if the lot fills up, they make you park in public parking which is a Tow Away Zone from 2 am to 5 am.

We stayed here as a last stop on a road trip around the island and chose it for its location near the beachfront, and, proximity to the airport. We were not disappointed at all. Staff was busy and professional, and did their best to have a room ready earlier than check-in. Pool was empty and quiet. Walked to excellent restaurant....

We only stayed for one night - priced right and close to the airport (7 miles). We were pleased with the comfortable and clean room, kind and courteous staff and the location is very convenient to downtown Kona and the waterfront. The pool area looked clean and inviting (though, we didn't have time to ).

Nothing great, could use a face lift. Clean and good location. Parking is very limited and I wasn't there earlier enough to park in their lot.
