82-6155 Mamalahoa Hwy (11), Captain Cook

Not-too-close, not-too-far from the more touristy Kona, this hotel was 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 watch TV) and no laundry facilities. Nice folks abound here; the place has a very comfortable family feel. They tried to upgrade the rooms with TVs, but the regular customers balked. Lanais only on private rooms in back building. 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). Their restaurant (closed Mondays) has outstanding pork chops made in an old cast iron skillet. Some rooms have private baths (for $72–$86)—spring for one if you can—others share a bath ($43–$46) if you’re looking for more of a hostel-esque experience.

What Readers Have to Say

“Was very anxious to see the sights and live the adventures that you recommended. I was not disappointed. To the contrary. Your book was spot on in every aspect that we tested and guided us to probably the best vacation our family has experienced. I have and will continue to recommend your book, as required reading before a visit to the islands. We truly do appreciate the work that you put into your books and the honest critiques. We knew we had something good, when we spoke to the locals, told them that we had read your book and most replied that they use your book, too. Now, that is a real testimony!”
