Yes, the place may be a bit "dated", but you get what you pay for. I thought it was very cute Hotel. It was clean & the view from our room was very good. They do have a "Hospitality" room to clean-up in after you check out. The people at the reservation desk were very courteous & helpful to us......

It was our last day in the island and we wanted to find a hotel close to the airport. My wife did a few search online and found this hotel. She found places in the website saying that we can get an upgrade if we are aaa member or if we can tweet it about it, and we decided to...

I dont know about these positive reviews, This place is dated looks like a hotel from the 1960 that has not been updated, beds are hard, very small room, things falling apart, THIS IS NOT A HOTEL, ITS A MOTEL. Should charge 49.00 a Night . The a 5.00 parking fee. STAY AWAY if you want to get some rest...

Fiance and I stayed here for 4 nights across our trip to Kona. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The location is excellent as you are within walking distance or short driving distance to pretty much anything you want or need in Kailua-Kona. We had the deluxe room and the breakfast at Splashers Restaurant was good too. It's a...

The lobby is decorated with hand-made Hawaiian quilt samplers made lovingly by Mama Kimi, matriarch to the family-owned chain.The staff at the front desk are so warm and welcoming, you just want to hug them. Always calm and serene, exuding the Aloha Spirit!. Rooms...

In addition to a wonderful, friendly staff, the location is fabulous. Thanks to a refrigerator in our room (I think in all rooms); we enjoyed breakfast on our lanai in the mornings. There is a nice pool at the hotel, but there is also a small beach across the street where you can watch the cruise ships and fishing boats....

Budget friendly hotel in great location near a couple of small but nice beach areas. At the southern tip of tourist area, the only problem was noise from traffic on busy road. Nothing fancy but room was large and clean with balcony, o.k. bathroom with lots of counter space. Very nice pool area. Friendly staff. Within walking distance of every...

A clean, reasonably priced hotel in the middle of everything. Super friendly staff. Comfortable rooms with some amenities. The pool is pleasant, although the ocean is acrosd the street. The beach, pier and great restaurants are all in easy walking distance.

I believe it is the same family owned Maui Seaside hotel in Maui. Excellent rate with excellent service. Reasonable parking fee. Staff is extremely friendly, helpful, and courteous. In room air conditioner is a bit noisy. However, after cooling the room down, ceiling fan is more than adequate for sleep. Good location in Kona. As in Maui Seaside, micro wave...
