Centrally located

The bed was really comfortable, AC, a fridge & microwave in the room were a bonus. You can walk to 2 local beaches, but if you want to explore awesome beaches rent a jeep! Breakfast includes toast, coffee, juice & fruit. Staff were helpful & welcoming. Beach towels were provided, very convenient.

Nice pool. Not nice cockroaches.

The hotel is ideally located. The pool is nice. The staff is wonderful. On the other hand, I can still feel the impression each coil in the mattress left on my back. The cockroaches smashed against the room windows were delightful. The bathroom sink faucet was broken. Great hotel if you're bumming in Kona with your bros, but not so much with your kids.

if you don't need the best comfort, and only have a room to sleep in, then it's just perfect..

Location, but nothing else

Within the first ten minutes of being in room, we killed seven cockroaches. We got upgraded to a new room. It had nicer tv and higher thread count sheets but nothing else. Tile floors needed to be mopped. Mini fridge not plugged in, and we didn't realize this, food went bad. Bath tub did not drain well, so you were standing in ankle deep water the whole time, water temperature was very sporadic. Continental breakfast was bread, mini muffins, some papaya slices, 2 cereals, and hard boiled eggs. Coffee was typically running out or empty. And someone stole my English muffin from the toaster. Overall, good location in downtown, but rooms desperately need a revamp.

Good for the price

little disappointed after a long fright and drive from the airport. It is very old hotel and breakfast is not good. Parking lot is in outside of the hotel and no security there.
