"Vacation to visit my daughter at YWAM"
The hotel staff was kind and very helpful. Our room was clean and refreshed each day. Any request I made was taken care of very quickly. Loved the hotel beach so much!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach and restaurants"
Good experience, within walking distance to shops, beach, waterfront, and restaurants. Did not need a car. Not much beach view, but great mountain view. Staff helped with arrangements on excursions and was picked up at the door. Great dining near the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel. Close to beach and entertainment."
Staff failed to call when room was ready. Breakfast buffet was very expensive. Room was very nice and staff was helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Were close to beach however ocean view?"
Our room was ocean view. The only was to see the ocean was on one part of our balcony on the left and it was a view of a small beach and could barely see the ocean. We couldn't leave our drapes open to let in the light because another part of the hotel was close and people could see into our room. The room was clean and the staff was courteous.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very convenient location to everything"
This is an excellent hotel. Location is great and staff were mostly accommodating. Rooms were nice. The front desk and concierge staff were most helpful. We had no complaints in this area.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great location on the beach"
This is our 3rd year in a row stay here. Great value for the price . We have never had a complaint and staff is very friendly and helpfull all the time. Plan on staying here again next year.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel & service were ok. It is one of the best in the area. Nicer hotels with better service are available in Waikoloa area. Was a funky smell in the lobby area, which somewhat dissapated by the next day. The location is great for the Kailua-Kona area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the bay."
Nice hotel very close to the bay and many stores along the waterfront.Genuine Expedia guest review
Does not accomodate Gold Card members very well.. wanted to charge you for extra coffee. Will not allow you to use your Marriott points if you pay with Expedia.. so the very reason I booked at this resort for a week was to earn points and then when we checked in they told us that since we used Expedia I would receive no credit with my Marriott points […] - very disappointing. The pool area was clean and food was normal. Most of the staff and housekeeping were very friendly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel on the beach"
We had a great stay, the rooms are very nice, clean and very comfortable. There is plenty to do and several Shops on a Spa site so you don't have to leave unless you want to. The staff is very helpful in arranging off site activities and assisting in any way possible.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to downtown"
next door to bunch of restaurants in walking distance. luau at this hotel was great. Kona brewing company is a 5 min. walk which was a bonus. was expecting more of an actual beach, there isn't much sand here. rooms also very smallGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel near all facilities"
Our stay was quite wonderful. The hotel staff was very informative and showed they all were receptive to our questions and concerns. Our room was clean and fresh smelling.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Name says it all."
Very nicely appointed with attractive and educational artifacts about King Kamehameha. All kinds of amenities at hand-- pier from which Atlantis submarine debarks to visit underwater reef/fishes/wrecks (and other tour/cruises), snorkling etc. rentals, good snorkling right in bay within steps of hotel, luaus scheduled right on grounds, appropriate to […] historical location of King Kamehameha's activities, etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to ammentities"
Hotel was nice, service was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to sights and luau"
Unusual fragrance used for cleaning especially strong in hallways. If you have allergies best to stay away from this one.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Central location - easy to find. Older property - nothing special except for location and easy walk to spots in Kailua. No restaurant for dinner Friday night except for a $45.00 p.p. buffet in dining room. Charge $12 to park a rental car. Front desk not extremely accommodating or helpful. I would seek an alternative place to stay if returning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in nice location"
Great hotel in nice condition, delicious breakfast buffet. Good location with great pubs and restaurants in walking distance. Definitely a recommendation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value and great location"
Wie stayed at the hotel for five nights and we had a great time. When we booked the hotel we had much lower expectation based on the pictures we saw. The hotel is located in Kailua, a small beach town. It has access to a small sandy beach which is also safe and excellent for snorkeling and swimming. The pool is not huge compared to other resort like […] pools but it is warm and it has a great pool bar. This hotel does not charge any additional fees such as resort fees. It provides free Internet services and we opted for self parking, which was very convenient. Afterwards, we stayed at a much bigger resort further up the coast because we thought our kids would enjoy a few days of that all the amnesties that those big resort offer. Honestly, we need up missing the Marriott. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"affordable hotel in good location"
King room was spacious and clean with a sofa bed. Bathroom was a bit small but all the amenities are there and housekeeping was great about visiting daily. The hotel has what appeared to be man made beach access but it's only good for small children and launching kayaks and stand up paddle boats. For anyone older, I advise going to a real beach. It […] is centrally located around a lot of good restaurants within walking distance like Kona Brewery Co and Island Lava Java. What really stood out for me was the excellent hospitality service of Haidee at the front desk and Josie in Housekeeping. Haidee was kind and helpful and embodied exactly what you hope for when staying in a hotel away from home. Josie was kind enough to loan me her personal cellphone charger when mine was replaced. I'd visit again just because of the two of them! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Impolite working staff"
I don't it was worthwhile spending big bucks. I didn't get what I expected. The front desk staff is rude.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a very comfortable room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel in great location"
I can't think of anything wrong with this hotel other than I thought the bed comforter was not heavy enough. The location was right on the beach and in the middle of all the bars and restaurants. Despite all this if I ever make it back to Kona I would choose another hotel about a mile south where there are even more bars and restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is an outstanding hotel. the employees were all great, from the front desk to the maids. The restaurant staff, the food and the service was outstanding. I would recommend without reservation and would stay in the hotel againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel on the beach, great location."
Stayed here for the first time, we usually stay at a different hotel when in Kona but decided to stay here instead on this trip and we're glad we did. Loved it! Nice rooms with 2 queen beds, usually they're double beds. Great ocean/mountain view from the lanai and it wasn't even a "ocean view" room. Very clean grounds, well kept. The hallways had a […] light floral fragrant which was very pleasant. The pool was nice with a pool bar. Service at the pool bar was slow and the food was very expensive. A sandwich, salad, and a couple of burgers with 4 cocktails cost $130!! They have a great luau on the grounds, well worth going to. Hotel is in walking distance to just about everything. ABC store downstairs is a plus. Breakfast buffet at the hotel restaurant was pretty good. Will definitely stay here the next time we visit Kona. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Grief at check in."
Our luggage was delivered to our room. the room was not made up. We were then told that they would have to remove all our gear from the room. Later they said it would be OK to leave our stuff in the room and we could return in an hour to check into the room. 90 minutes later, after a relaxed lunch, we were told that the room was still not ready. We […] went to the pool and spent another hour. this time the room was ready, but no one offered any recompense for our trouble, they seemed to blame us for the problem. "You shouldn't have gone up to the room." (We were directed to the room by the bell person, we didn't barge into the room unaccompanied.) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, great location"
This hotel was a very pleasant surprise. We only stayed one night before checking into our rental house, but it is a great hotel. Right on the water, beach access as well as many water activities. Also walking distance to all Alii Drive has to offer. Very friendly and helpful staff, great comfy beds, awesome breakfast buffet (additional charge). Only […] downside is you have to pay to park.

The room was comfortable and clean. Every staff member we interacted with was friendly and helpful. Our view was amazing (partial ocean w/ a king bed). The location is in the midst of all of the action. King Kam is the perfect place to take in all of Kona's treats.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location in Kailua-Kona"
In my opinion, there is no other option when choosing a place to stay in Kona. You can't beat the location: shopping, food & attractions are all within walking distance. Nice pool & wonderful beach right outside the lobby. The rooms are very nicely furnished, clean & comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly & courteous.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to everything and moderately priced"
King k has everything you need for a great family vacation. Grounds are beautiful and close to all the resteraunts and shops. Make sure to rent a car and explore the island. It's beautiful!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel close to airport"
Was looking for a place to stay for one night, close to airport. What a surprise! Great facilities, neat great restaurants. Very convenient. Wish we would have stayed one more night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, pretty views"
Hotel was located close to shops and restaurants. Great ocean view, beach, and pool area. Staff was generally pleasant and accommodating. Housekeeping was inconsistent with timing, which was sometimes challenging. Hidden parking fee of 12 dollars a night that wasn't indicated prior to our arrival-- added an extra $100 plus dollars to the stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
The beds and room were very comfortable and the staff were always smiling and saying aloha. I would recommend this room to anyone. Stayed 7 nights with clean towels and bed made every day. Restaurant staff and food was great as well. Do the luau. It is a unique look at Hawaii from the past and present.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had such a wonderful time at Marriott in Hawaii. The location was perfect walking distance for all our needs and the scenery was great. Their Luau was fun and informative, and watching the outriggers practice each day was a treat. Easy access to the drive around the mountain and falls. Toured coffee plantation and kayaking, mopeds and snorkeling […] was a blast. we definitely would recommend this hotel to stay in. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location in town"
I picked this hotel because it offered a Luau dinner (for additional charge of approx $85 per person). The hotel room was nice, with a small private balcony. Lobby area was nothing special. Good location in Kona town. It is in walking distance of the Kona brewery and some other restaurants and stores. We did not use the pool or small beach at the hotel, […] but they looked ok. We had a car so we took a short drive to a couple nice beaches/state parks instead. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Relaxing hotel, friendly staff"
Stayed for one week, relaxed around pool every other day in between driving around the island to see tourist attractions. The jacuzzi was excellent. The gym was adequate (three treadmills, two elypticals, two weight machines, several sizes of dumbells, disappointed it didn't have life cycle/ excercise bike). Pool area could stand to be bigger as it […] only had thirty or so lounge chairs which after 11 am we're pretty much all taken. Compared to the other hotels in kona you would want to stay here.

"Top Notch Fun"
The Marriott was wonderfully located for our vacation, clean, friendly and great for shopping, swimming, paddle boarding and more! We came for a wedding but also vacation with our older children and had a blast. The Luau was fantastic!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
1. Room cleaners failed to clean one day when we were out and misrepresented that we placed a don't disturb sign on room door. Wrong. This was after another lady said she cleaned the room. Someone appeared about 4 pm stating they finish cleaning then. I said we will leave about 5:00; clean then. She was somewhat demanding and, considering we were customers, […] rude. 2. Found a cockroach (a Hawaii divebomber) in the bathroom. 3. At breakfast one supposedly clean water glass had gook on it another lipstick; not our dna. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location, reasonable if unspectacular"
We didn't plan to spend much time in the hotel itself during our three night stay, so we didn't look too carefully at hotel amenities. Overall the place felt and smelled a little stale, but there was nothing outrageously wrong with it. The room was clean, the bed was nice, the A/C was good, the bathroom was all right, but our non-ocean-view room wasn't […] terribly romantic or remarkable. Location within Kona itself was perfect. Walking distance from a variety of bars and restaurants on Alii Drive. Parking was $12 a night but very convenient. The pool is ho-hum and the outdoor bar is a little weak. The exercise facility is slightly better than typical. The hotel complex includes a lot of small commercial businesses on site, including a spa, drug store, etc., so that's convenient, but there were also a lot of empty storefronts which was a little depressing. And all those conveniences are also available right across the street on Alii Drive. The access directly into the water was nice, but we didn't take advantage of that, choosing instead to go to 'real' beaches. We were initially interested in going to the nightly Luau (Tue-Thu), but after checking out the setting we decided that at $80/head it was probably going to be a cheezy and overpriced. I'd recommend this hotel as a safe and reasonably priced home base in Kona, but not as a destination in and of itself. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Better than I thought it would be."
Apparently they remodeled the hotel recently, and it looks like it. The outside looks a little dated, but everything looks newer inside. Pretty decent hotel for a reasonable price. No breakfast provided and it's paid parking are a couple of cons. It's in a good location right on the water, and close to lots of restaurants and the highway is not far […] away. Didn't do their luau or use the pool or anything else, so I can't comment on that stuff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walking distance to Kona"
This hotel was in a great location. We could walk to dinner almost every night. It was just a short drive to great snorkling. The little beach in front of the hotel is good for small children or if you just want to lay on soft white sand.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for private beach an snorkeling"
We stayed in east wing with view of Alii Dr. and part of shoreline. Not sure the ocean view rooms would be worth the price unless you spent a lot of time on balcony. Several stores in lobby including a small grocery and coffee house. Small private white sand beach just outside nice pool area with outside bar. Beach is very wave protected but just outside […] breakwater is a wonderful snorkeling area with lots of colorful fish and coral. Can swim North to a blowhole before waves get a little rough.

It was a long walk to shopping district and restaurants, but a very nice beach and harbor to hang out in. Had a great time and hope to visit again. Will stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
