Kona Getaway

Would recomend this hotel to anyone!!! I would say it's the nicest hotel right in the heart of Kona. We took two days to drive the entire Island. Would definitely recommend pre renting a car. There was not much selection when we tried to book it the day we wanted to sight see. Everyone should go to the Captain Cook Monument!!! We bought masks and snorkels from Walmart and hiked down to the ocean. It's about a 45 min hike down, 1 hr and a half up. Sooo worth it though. We got to swim with tropical fish in crystal blue waters.

Great hotel Central location

The new remodel was a great improvement to this property. Beautiful pool, beach on site and very comfy new beds. Rooms were not large overly large, but adequate for a mid-price hotel. Glad we stayed.

Kona King Kamehameha

The hotel was excellent. Location in the middle of everything, value is good, staff very helpful. Only criticism - the computers were too slow and the daily password was annoying; it was the same everyday...

There is an outdoor food and crafts market in a parking lot down the street which offers the same things in shops, but at a better price. There is a very nice coffee shop right across the street. Order the cold brew, one shot, whole milk, one shot of sugar free chocolate macademia nut flavored latte. Say hi to Leslee!

Terrific Couple Getaway

Really had a wonderful time! The room was beautiful. We had a view overlooking the street which had a partial ocean view on the strip. Perfect location to walk right onto Ali'i Drive. The bed was ridiculously comfortable! Will stay again! :)

Good value

For the rate, no complaints. Service was good and the hotel has a lot to offer in terms of facilities. Breakfast was ok....not spectacular. The buffet could have been better for the price. Biggest drawback was a "musty" yet deodarized smell on the hotel floor. I would go back to this hotel again though.
