    Decent hotel

    Smoke detector battery was chirping first night. Was replaced but took over 30 minutes. Overall quite nice. Good location for dining in Kona town.

    Meh.

    Not the worst place I've stayed, but for the price it's for sure isn't the best. Old Hilton hotel which still looks like an old Hilton hotel. Service is ok and there was attempt to be helpful, but folks seemed to be disorganized and almost panicked - especially at the front desk. Food was waaaay over-priced (even by Hawaii standards). Luckily, the hotel is in a great location and surrounded by outside restaurants and bars. Rooms are spacious with a pretty comfortable bed, but the bathrooms are old and need renovating. All-in-all, I wouldn't rush to stay here again, but there are def worse places.
