Extremely rundown and dirty. Sad because it could be a cool old-style Hawaiian hotel in the heart of Kona! Needs TLC and major repairs/upkeep/renovations.

Had to wait until 4 pm to check in. Room was gross--table hadn't been wiped off and there was food residue on it. Bathroom sink had whiskers and hair in it. Leftovers were left in the fridge. There were no sheets for pull-out bed. Called front desk and let phone ring 7 MINUTES before hanging up. Went to front desk, was told it would be 45 minutes before they could get sheets to us. And it was. When I complained and check out, Reba said the manager, Robert, was unavailable but that he'd call. Of course he didn't. Don't waste your time or money on this fleabag.

Soap dish, shower head fall off shower wall was not good. Coffee pot didn't work and they didn't even put coffee cups in the room. they didn't have coffee cream packets in the room and they ran out of creamer in the lobby where we had to go to get coffee also not good. Door to the balcony was very difficult to lock because it's in bad condition. This hotel is pretty run down, so don't plan to stay there again.

The front desk lady, Floris was very kind and accommodating. The facility was dated and could use general improvement. The place was definitely clean and pool area was nice.

The staff was friendly and the pool was nice. The room was very poorly maintained. Rotten wood and very old window that won’t close all the way. When we arrived the AC was on but so was the Heater. Lol. Last but not least there was a dead but not old large Cockroach on the floor

The grounds are well maintained. Staff polite all in uniform, seem to take pride in property. The restaurant is closed & appears like it will be for some time. The room it self had water damage in bathroom. Mold & mildew.
