75-5646 Palani Rd, Kailua-Kona

This hotel is located across the street from Kailua Bay in the heart of Kailua-Kona. The buildings, built over time several decades ago, are immaculate but very dated. Tidiness is a welcome obsession here. The simple grounds are constantly groomed; the rooms are acceptable, but the mattresses leave something to be desired. Also, sounds do carry between rooms, especially the plumbing sounds. (The showerheads are perfectly mounted—if you are 5-foot-2 inches tall.) You won’t find waterslides, glass elevators or an atrium the size of Kaua‘i, but you will find a pleasant hotel with a central location and fairly reasonable rates staffed by friendly folks. If that’s what you are looking for—stop looking. Parking is $7. Standard rooms in the oldest building are $110–$150. Superior rooms are $145–$150, deluxe rooms are $155–$160. Prices include breakfast for Superior and Deluxe rooms (simple choices) at a nearby restaurant. Tower rooms with an even number on the high floors have distant ocean views. If you consider that few pay the rack rate, it might be a Solid Gold Value.

What Readers Have to Say

“Your guidebooks were so successful at making us feel like kama’aina that we finally couldn’t face another flight back to the mainland, and moved to Oahu. We’ve used your guides to Maui, the Big Island and Oahu, and always have the latest edition of all four on hand. We’ve certainly found your advice to be helpful…Thanks again.”
