My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights as part of a package deal with Hawaiian Airlines. When we arrived we asked if we could have an ocean-view room. We were told there was one on the 6th floor. We took it. The room was clean and comfortable and everything worked and there was indeed a view of the...

The room was clean,the bed was comfortable, and the view was fantastic. The beach and pool were super clean. The best snorkeling is right on this beach. We traveled around the island and then snorkeled around maui, but our favorite spot was right here at this beach. Our kids loved renting a standup paddle board which can be charged right...

We just stayed over the Thanksgiving holiday and loved it. One of the best features is the location, situated right in the heart Kona it's within walking distance to all of the great restaurants and bars. Additionally, they have the best beach right outside the doors of the hotel on Kailua Bay. You can rent paddle boards, kayaks, and surf...

If I could give this place 10 stars I would! I'm a guest right now & this place is perfect. Clean and comfortable rooms shops on lower level & a little beach with fabulous snorkling! Countless shops and dining in area. There is a Luau here tomorrow and I can't wait. Everything you could want or need right here. Staff...

We checked in on Thanksgiving and were given an upgrade to an ocean-view room. The room was adequate, considering the age of the property- but it is on holy ground for the Hawaiian's and I appreciated experiencing the pier-front view. The next morning, the Ultra Iron Man (2X the Kona Iron Man) began in our view-- what an experience! This...

Could not fault the hotel. Lovely large clean room with fridge looking inland. The position of the hotel was very central and we did not need a sea view because we spent little time in the room. Food was good, staff were very friendly and helpful. Went a couple of nights to Quinn's across the road for drinks and a...

We stayed here for a couple days and really enjoyed ourselves. The rooms was nice, with lots of closet space and a nice bathroom. It also had a little fridge.

Situated in Downtown Kona, staying at this hotel was one of our best decisions for this vacation. Definitely a much better choice than staying at Hilo as Kona is more beautiful with a variety of shops & restaurants along the coast. The hotel itself was semi-luxurious, had good room service, a very helpful front desk & activities desk, many artifacts...

This hotel is well located in the heart of Kona, within easy walking distance of many restaurants and some rooms have good water views. Fishhopper is probably the best, but the atmosphere in at the Kona Inn restaurant is good. For a Courtyard, it is upscale. I like Kona better than Hilo. It rains less in Kona, but somewhere on...
