The staff at Uncle Billy's are all amazing. We were there recently and they were very accommodating. I will be back

We had a nice stay. We had tickets to the Kona Brew Fest which was postponed, we’ll be back!

Nice area and garden. Close to everything. Hotel needs needs an update. The room had a very musty smell.

No hot water. VERY dated room. The shower was falling apart. Overall, the only positive thing was the view we had.

To old building and inside furnitures/fixtures. It’s smells old/ horrible looks. Not habitable at all

Stove didn’t work, railings on deck were broken, sliding door handle was ready to fall off, tub drain was clogged, and after going out for the day came back to find that the front door didn’t even lock and a key wasn’t needed to open it, glad I didn’t leave my valuables in the room

Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location and close to shops downtown.

It’s right in the center of all the historic sites and restaurants.

Air conditioning in room did not work, nor did the television. Stayed for two nights and neither were repaired. Room was clean enough and has a nice view but the bathroom was less than desirable. Front desk staff was less than helpful and did not seem to want to be there. Disappointing stay.

The location of property was the only positive. Our lights went out in kitchenette and bathroom the second day we were there. They sent someone to fix but unable. They said sorry but wouldn’t be able to fix until Monday, we checked out Sunday. Very dated property and they charged $10 per night parking.

Always welcoming when we stay and my daughters love the pool.

Close to beaches, and center of tourist areas. Easy access to restaurants and bars. Disadvantage: Not much of a late night life after 10.00 PM.

Staff extremely rude. Asked for a receipt and was refused, "You have one on the computer from Expedia." My booking was through Orbitz, and I have never been refused a receipt anywhere before. The next woman in line asking for shampoo was told, "We only give amenities to premiere guests." Groundskeepers/Janitors hanging around leering and making comments about guests. I was afraid to walk by them. The room was generic cheap hotel, OK. The staff was ugly, probably because people want receipts or shampoo.

The grounds were nice, but the rooms were dated, the coffee pot had been used, but not cleaned, I felt like I had to clean the bath room before taking a shower. (old,Dated,Mold) I am glad I was only there one night.

It is a cool place, just need bit more upgrading. But Nice place to stay overall.
