They claim this “was probably the first hotel on the island.” It’s pretty disheveled with old furnishings, and it’s on a busy intersection. They were painting rooms on our recent visit. Rooms are small (most under 200 sq. ft.), have bathrooms and fridges but no phones or tvs. $55–$70. Cash only in advance. If you stay more than two nights, the rates drop, but you pay in full in advance. They have an old piano in the lobby, but we doubt you’ll find Billy Joel playing here. The reason for the Solid Gold Value is there are not many places with a private room, a/c, and bath for this kind of money on the island, but don’t expect much more than that.

What Readers Have to Say

“My wife and I went to Hawai’i back in September, and your books proved to be the best guides we found, bar none. The information was accurate and the way you mapped things out was perfect. I have continued to recommend to people that are going to Hawai’i to pick up your books and check your Web site for updates. Thanks to your books, we had the best vacation we have ever had, period. Both books were fabulous, and I still read them just to get a taste of what we experienced. Keep up the spectacular work!”
