4 Stars for a 2 Star Hotel

This is an acceptable hotel for locals that don't spend too much time in the room and if they're looking for a no frills hotel experience. It had hot water, the toilet flushed, and there were no bed bugs. As for location, this hotel has all the other hotels beat!

You get what you pay for

Uncle Billy's is an extremely convenient hotel to stay in while you visit the Kona side of the BI. The pool is nice, it's close to everything you'd want to explore and the staff is sweet and accommodating. The rooms, however, leave a lot to be desired. Ours had a great partial ocean view, but was decidedly unclean. I'd stay there again, because you can't really beat the cost, but know that it's definitely lacking any of the bells and whistles.

Very Good Value for the Money!

The Beds were very comfortable for this level of hotel. The Staff was very friendly. I would recomend to anyone on a budget who is not expecting Fine Dining on the premsies or a luxurious pool.
