Bargain in the heart of town

The location is the best thing going here. Right on Alii drive. Perfect bargain hotel if you want to be located in the heart of Kona. The room class that I rented did not come with a cofee maker in the room but coffee is available at the front desk from 5 - 6:30 AM. Free breakfast (fruit, pastries, bread/toast, juice, coffee) for two hours every day.

good for a one night stay

Good value, booked last minute, and they were good for the check in. Internet was solid. Thry get dinged because they charge 5 dollars for parking in a sketchy lot. And because the police had some big operation with a pair of arrests as i was checking in. Not terrible, got what i expected for the price.

Good Weekend Staycation

The staff were friendly and approachable. One downfall would be the size of the bathroom. Way too small. Overall a nice stay.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

If you want fresh authentic hawaiian meals, Umekes is the place to go! It's a short walk from the hotel to the building. Great poke as always & it's near by.

Nice location, but dirty rooms

The hotel is located in the center of action. Unfortunately they need more staff and rooms are filthy.

Good for the price

The staff was nice and it was in a great location. The rooms where nice but kind of dirty, the only big problem was that my sink was infested by ants and they were all over the twols and stuff. Other then that it was good for the price.

Kona Stay

Shopped, and worked from the desk in the room. Went to dinner at some very good restaurants, best was Royal Kona Resort. Hotel was mediocre, but price was good. Breakfast of toast & coffee was nice. Don't think we would stay here again.

Average budget hotel in a good place

Nothing particular for that price. The rooms are old, but clean. The breakfast is just nominal. There are many restaurants, gift shops, groceries etc. around, but the beach is not very good.

Great noisy location

Uncle Billy's Kona Hotel is very conveniently located on Alii Drive next to all of the action in bayfront Kailua, Kona. We had a large room in the older, open section of the hotel, with two queen beds and a pleasant little lanai. The room was a little grungy, but comfortable enough with a small refrigerator, a room safe, and free wireless. A continental breakfast was offered, but I can't comment on the quality as we did not take advantage of it. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Parking is cheap at $5 for overnight. The room was not well insulated for sound and it was one of the NOISIEST nights ever, between a lovesick chirping coqui frog, late night partying and singing somewhere, early morning garbage pickup, and the worst, an eager leaf blower who started early before the mall across the street opened. That awful sound penetrated and reverberated throughout the room. Fortunately the room is moderately priced, and if you can sleep through any disturbance, you would probably find it a good value.
