It was alright.
Nice place to stay. Wide area in the room. Needs improvement or renovations. The lighting is yellow, would like it to be brighter. The bathroom door is chipping and caulking in the bathroom needs to be fixed. Also would be nice if there was a ventilation in the bathroom. Wish wifi was free. Thanks!

Nice, but noisy hotel
It was a nice hotel on the main Kona strip. Very close to everything. Parking can be challenging. My only complaint is that there was a wedding on the property that was very loud into the wee hours of the night. It was somewhat annoying after a long flight in.
