good value in Kona

Good value in Kona. Good location. Room is quiet, clean and everything in the room works. Free and fast WiFi in the room and throughout the hotel. Food (dinner) is delicious and reasonably priced at the hotel restaurant. The only downsides are: 1) parking is $14/night + tax. 2) no room service (for meals) -- instead, need to go to the hotel restaurant to pick up takeouts. 3) beds are too soft for my liking. Bottomline: would stay there again.

The people make the place

Everything about the King Kamehameha is great, but the staff really puts it over the top. They are just so helpful and friendly. The place is beautiful…swimming pool, shops, art galleries. It's a little pricier than I normally spend, but hey, it's on the BEACH, in KONA, Hawaii…hard to beat!

King Kam- good choice

Great location to walk around the town. There was a fee for parking but always good spaces available. The beach and pool area were especially family friendly. The towel service was a plus. We enjoyed the Luau too. The staff were helpful and upbeat. We will definitely stay there again.

Great location

This hotel is located right on the beach. The beach is great for kids because it has a very gentle slope and is on a protected cove so there is virtually no waves even when it is windy. Also some above average snorkeling just outside the cove. The area does get quite crowded when cruise ships are in town, the tender pier is just outside the cove also. We were just there one night due to an airline scheduling glitch but I would stay there again. right in the heart of the tourist shopping district with lots of choices for restaurants all within walking distance. Rooms are nice sized and clean, recently renovated. Free internet but parking is $15 daily. Very friendly and accomodating staff. Lots of great facilities which we didn't have time to use.

Great Stay

This was our first visit since December 2010 and the hotel has been substantially upgraded. The room was freshly appointed and the beds were extremely comfortable. Staff were very accommodating. Marriott has taken over this hotel and done a great job. We would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Clean and good service

The people will clean our our room everyday and refill the stuff. Although the room has partial ocean view, we still enjoy the hotel. Especially it is held by the LDS member.

NO COMPLAINTS

I simply use hotels to sleep and shower. All I require is cleanliness, enough towels and a courteous, informative staff. My experience was good.

The Big Island is BIG. Stay in a hotel on the side of the Island you plan to do the most on. Or, switch hotels/sides partway through your trip. If not, you spend too much time driving.

Hands down the best place to stay in Kailua Kona

This hotel has everything and is an outrageous value. Best location, close to everything within walking distance, great staff, restaurant, bar, pool, luau....Would only stay here when we come back. All other more expensive hotels are FAR AWAY from the action and not worth the prices. This is the ONLY place to be if you are staying in town. My only problem is their wooden louvered sliding window treatments which are stationary in the down direction and can not be closed all the way for privacy. (We were on our honeymoon - hello!) We had to ask for an extra large sheet to cover it so the whole world would not see into our unit. (This place needs to add curtains so guests can decide for themselves what level of view they would like to enjoy.) BTW you can see into every room in the hotel from the ground floor and nearby restaurants. You also have to slide open the entire wall of blinds in order to open the sliding glass door. Another issue, the AC will not run if the sliding glass door is not closed and locked. An obvious problem if you are getting ready in the bathroom and want AC and the other person wants to sit outside and chill. You would have to lock them out to have it both ways??? The bathroom does NOT have its own fan, so you need that AC! That is the ONLY reason I am not giving this place 5 stars. It's a great hotel and we will be back!

Ask anybody in town and they will direct you to Quinns. It's not the first place I would go for your "Hawaiian" experience, but they have great food at cheap prices and it's across the street. Everybody goes here!

Good hotel for Downtown Kona

This hotel is great for the $. It's been renovated, so the rooms are modern looking and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but it's a lot better than Royal Kona.
