Don't Stay here

If I could give it negative stars I would. This hotel really needs to re-evaluate and renovate their rooms and service.

Awesome trip

I stayed at uncle Billy's for 9 days. My bed was made every day and fresh towels. Yes the hotel is older and needs updates but when you are on vacation you are there to enjoy the adventure and the hotel is for a place to stay, i like spending my money on things to enjoy not a fancy hotel. The staff was very welcoming, the breakfast was coffee, muffins, toast,juice which was expected. Uncle Billy's does not charge extra fee every day like most hotels on the big island which can range from $20 to $30 a day but they do charge for parking $5 per day no big deal. The hotel is right across from shopping mall and walking distance to many restaurants, site seeing,,stores, convenience.would definitely stay at uncle Billy's again. A lot of Iron man athlete's were also staying at the hotel.

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.

Weekend Getaway

Came to Kona from the other side of the island. This hotel is in a great location. The hotel is not overly fancy, but it absolutely gets the job done. The morning continental breakfast is wonderful too.

Weekend Getaway

After booking this hotel during one of the 20% off deals, the cost of the hotel was less than $100 for the night. The hotel is simple but clean. The location is fantastic and provided a great place for a quick getaway!

Great place to be.

Uncle Billy's, Kona Bay may not be the big fancy resort, and that is what makes it great. local HAWAIIAN hospitality.Located on main street, you can walk Kona town and enjoy.

Good Weekend Staycation

The staff were friendly and approachable. One downfall would be the size of the bathroom. Way too small. Overall a nice stay.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

If you want fresh authentic hawaiian meals, Umekes is the place to go! It's a short walk from the hotel to the building. Great poke as always & it's near by.

We enjoyed our stay !!

The hotel is right in the center of the shopping areas and activities that was a plus. I think there should be a little more to the breakfast in the morning. Other than that we enjoyed our stay. We would stay at this same hotel the next time we go to Kona Hawaii.
