Great location in Kailua-Kona

The hotel is not 5 star, but it is clean, friendly, great parking area, and close to many stores and restaurants (all within a short walk). We live in East Hawaii but love to go to the West Side to rest, eat and drink at Outback, and relax watching the dolphins in Kailua Bay from the Hotel. I personally love the private lagoon for snorkeling and swimming. There are lots of tropical fish there and sometimes a Honu (green sea turtle) comes in during high tide.

Great oceanfront hotel.

Great oceanfront hotel at a very reasonable price. Great bar. Older rooms but kept up nicely, but this seems to be the Hawaii norm unless a brand new facility. No beach at hotel, would need to drive a ways to get to a sandy beach. Very close, walking distance to Kona waterfront restaurants and stores.
