Amazing location

Olympia, Washington

Amazing location within walking distance of Kona shops and restaurants. The hotel has a great bar/restaurant as well. We had an Ocean Front room with a wonderful sunset view! The staff were great ! While not the most luxurious, the pricing and location made up for it. I would definitely stay there again!

Just What We Wanted

Gillette, Wyoming

We got what we expected. My husband made the reservations, wanting: an inviting atmosphere; comfort; a friendly, helpful staff; close to eating establishments; and so on. We found our room to be comfortable, clean, and quiet, with a very responsive housekeeping unit. We loved the lay-out of the hotel with the circular, open reception area and adjoining bar/restaurant. The restaurant was not open for evening meals, but had a dining room and buffet for breakfast. Quite impressive. The Royal Kona is an older hotel, but has all the amenities that we wanted, a pool, sunning areas, a super Luau, and a large parking area for folks with cars. The staff also makes reservations ahead of time or helps you with them at the desk. Every night different music flowed from the open bar/eating area. We were pleased with the hotel and would stay there again.
