Wonderful little hotel in a great location. Quiet relatively inexpensive! Easy going staff but still very professional.

We stayed here for our last night in Hawaii after returning from Hilo. The lady working at the check in desk was so nice. She heard our kids talking about wanting to swim in the pool and did everything she could to get them a pool time. They loved it! The room was clean, had everything we needed. The Keurig even had tea which I don’t usually find. We were very happy with our stay!

I love the the location and the cleanliness of the property.

This was a pleasant hotel in a convenient location. There were a few noisy partiers but the staff shut one down when I called. The grab and go breakfast was disappointing with only limited high sugar, carb options.

Staff went out of their way to accommodate us on short notice, room was great, greatly appreciated their help.

Nice breakfast! Super friendly service! Perfect walk to downtown

Close to beaches. Convenient Kona location for shopping.

Difficult to find hotel at night. The walls were not sound proof. I could hear people talking in next room.

It’s very clean and fresh, staff is friendly, and rooms are done well.

Friendly staff, nice property, pool, beds, and location.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They worked with us to store our luggage while we explored the town before our flight home. Thank you for your friendliness.

It was located very close to our destination, which was the Kona Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The location was great as well as clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Breakfast was AWFUL. Probably the worst breakfast I've had at any hotel or motel. Location is great, and the place is very clean. Staff was really nice. Also, they often run out of quarters for their laundry room and they don't have a quarter machine in the laundry room, so if you plan on doing laundry I would bring my own quarters. Parking is paid btw, $5 per car when we stayed.

Close to major attractions in Kona and restaurants. Don't really need a car ! Clean.

Great location and walking distance from lots of local and tourist activities.
