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.

The staff was just extremely helpful and great. The only thing thag i had to complain was the wifi wohlsnt work sometimes

The first room I was offered smelled like urine. I was given a second room that was orderless but had a party going on next door. When I received the quick check out receipt there was a $10 fee for parking in the hotel parking lot, and a cleaning fee. I have stayed at Holiday Inn Express around our great county, this is the first I’ve been charged extra beyond the agreed fees before the stay. Surprises in charges shouldn’t occur.

There was no hair dryer in the bathroom. When I called the front desk to ask for one, staff told me that housekeeping had gone home for the day and there was nothing she could do about it.

The pool didn't look too appealing. Continental Breakfast was very good. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Awesome hotel with a great continental breakfast. The only downside is that our room smelled like cat urine, very odd.

The staff and hotel were great, Nava was wonderful during check in. Helped out the Kama'aina like days past.

Was very pleasantly surprised. The rate was very reasonable for downtown Kona - right in the middle of everything. Room was spacious, clean and modern. Staff very pleasant. Free breakfast very good - includes pancakes! Pool small but nice. Only minor negative - wasn’t told of parking fee at time of booking nor upon arrival - so surprised to see charge of $25 for 2nights.

The only thing was the birds coming around when eating breakfast otherwise we had no problems

I’m a repeat customer and am very satisfied !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
