Great hotel for the price and location. Our 2nd stay here and recommend. Staff and very nice and helpful and the free breakfast every morning at Splashs restaurant was fantastic. VERY central to main street and close to shopping areas and right across from a kid friendly beach area.

We were there for the Queen Liliuokalani outrigger race so the venue was convenient, plus close to everything, shops, beach etc.

Great location

Pros: location
Cons: tea and kettle in the room
Location: swimming in ocean, cafes, shops
The best thing about this hotel is the location if you want to be near the restaurants and shops. Good for the price. Staff were helpful. Room is fine. My room just had a view of the back of the hotel and other buildings but what you would expect for the price. Missed not having any tea and a kettle in the room.

Top location, a bit noisy

Pros: location
Cons: noise
Location: restaurants, tour just right in mins of walk
First night the room was noisy due to AC or something. The next night, I was going to find another hotel, however the staff was able to relocate the room, the the noise problem fixed. It was a good experience.

Great ocean views, basic but clean

Pros: Location, cleanliness, friendliness.
Cons: The bathroom was fairly old and the shower head was partially coming out of the wall, but it worked fine.
We spent one night on arriving on Hawai'i. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast included at a nearby cafe. The hotel itself is older, though well maintained and modern/ refurbished fittings (beds, tv, etc). View from balcony looking out over Kailua-Kona to ocean. Great location about 20 minutes from airport.
