  • 4.0.Fair

    I was told parking would be taken out of a 150.00 deposit which I thought a deposit was ridiculous to begin with however on the my first morning there I noticed 20.89$ taken from my account when I asked about this I was told it was for parking. I stated the front desk person told me yesterday it would be taken from my deposit. Then when I entered the room to begin my stay there was rubbish behind the door and next to the rubbish bin in the bathroom. Not a great start I gotta tell you.

    $150 deposit!?

    Upon arrival the front desk clerk was very nice. Though I got the stay with my rewards night for only $27.05!? It’s to good to be true, because they have a sign saying you need to deposit $150 to stay in their hotel, no cash only debit/credit cards. I thought I wouldn’t be able to stay, but I ended up charging my credit card, which I disliked... but other then that, the room is comfortable, 2 queen beds, flat screen tv, a couch, keurig, microwave, and a mini refrigerator. I would stay again, but it would be a good heads up just to let people know that rewards night would not help with their $150 deposit needed...

  • 6.0.Good

    Overall room was clean upon check-in. Unfortunately there was a cockroach that came from under the TV. And one in the restroom floor. We stayed on the 1st floor. Also didn’t like the pool’s location right smack next to the registration area. It was very small & in an awkward location.

    Affordable and comfortable stay

    Frequently visit this hotel for work or staycation. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. Pool is adequate in size for our young swimmer. Location is more quiet than other hotel properties in area. Several restaurants and fast food in short walking distance. Great value for Kailua Village area.

    Comfortable and clean but way overpriced

    Comfortable and quiet hotel in a convenient location near the center of Kona. The room was spacious, with a large walkin shower instead of a bathtub. The surrounding area is drab and nondescript. Our biggest complaint was the cost: significantly overpriced for this type of hotel.
