Kona Kai
Stayed here before with a second floor room facing the Bay, We thought the room and the view was great. However, this time we had a first floor room with a view of the marina. Nice view once again, but the room was less than what we expected. The rate was a little pricey for what we got.

Poor1.0 / 5
Under Construction
We checked in and service at the front desk was great. When we checked in, we found out that everything closes at 10 p.m. and that we had to drive to the another building to get to our room. The next day, we were woken up by construction at 7 am! I am on vacation and want to sleep in. I know the hotel had to know that they were doing construction, so why put people in a room where there is construction right outside their window?? The construction continued throughout the day. There were fences going up so we had to take different routes to get to the pool, etc. Even at the pool I could hear the drilling. It was not a pleasant stay. If I wanted to hear construction I would have stayed in LA.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Alternative to Gaslamp District
There was a conference at the hotel the same time my fiancé and I stayed there. The attendees made it difficult to enjoy our stay there. If I had known a conference was there, I would not have made my reservation. The smell of cheap beer and alcohol permeated the air and many attendees indulged too much. There was an uncomfortable event at the resort's jacuzzi one evening. I would either suggest the hotel focus on developing its conference or resort clientele. Also, I would recommend the staff at the front desk be given a refersher on how to interact with guests. During my checkin, I had to wait for about 10 minutes while the staff discussed "unique" features of the computer system for the hotel. We do like the area. It is much nicer than being in gaslamp so we can relax after dinner, but the conference attendees made it nearly impossible to enjoy our stay. Before completely writing off Kona Kai, we would try it once more. I am hopeful resort management will address some of the issues.
