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. Tower rooms with an even number on the high floors have distant ocean views. Prices include breakfast for Superior and Deluxe rooms (simple choices) at a nearby restaurant. Standard rooms in the oldest building are $149–$159. Superior rooms are $169, deluxe rooms are $179. But usually discounts are available; if you consider that few pay the rack rate, it might be a Solid Gold Value.

What Readers Have to Say

“I’m a self-planner. I love travelling, researching and planning my trips…I buy all sorts of guides for fear of missing out…found your books online at Amazon and got one for Big Island and one for Maui…this was to be my 3rd trip…I wanted something different. I LOVED your books and read the big island cover to cover and could almost quote it. At one point my husband was like, “must you bring that book again?” Yet the day I wasn’t reading from it, he’s like, “what’s next?” So, it was money well-spent!!!!”
