82-6155 Mamalahoa Hwy (11), Captain Cook
Built in 1917 by a Japanese mail-order bride and her husband (with an initial investment of $100) as a restaurant with futons for their customers to sleep on (the rate was $1 a night back then), this still has the feel of old Hawai‘i. No phones or TVs in the rooms (people congregate in the lobby at night to watchTV) and no laundry facilities. Nice folks abound here; the place has a very family feel. They tried to upgrade the rooms withTVs, but the regular customers balked. Some rooms have private baths (for $61–$83)—spring for one if you can—others share a bath ($35–$38). Upper floors have good views, as does the back building. And you’ll be happy to know the place is very clean (for its age). Eleven miles south of Kona in Captain Cook on Hwy 11. Their restaurant (closed Mondays) has outstanding pork chops made in an old cast iron skillet.
