    Run down hotel but comfortable room.

    The main problem with this hotel was that it is old and run down. The bed was very comfortable, and the room large enough, but some things didn't work (safe broken, door jammed, etc.) However the price wasn't expensive for the location.

    The fridge didn’t work, had mould inside. Carpet was all lifted and torn next to the bed. Not all lights worked. The location was lovely though!

    The property is still being fixed up since a cyclone hit a while back. Our check-in was delayed for hours, but we accepted that our group was early, however, when another larger group also arrived early and were checked in ahead of us, that was very disappointing and frustrating. Our time spent at Uncle Billy's was made so much better by some of the staff that tried to rectify and make up for the earlier mishaps of check-in and "no breakfasts" (although we'd booked when this was still offered). The rooms our group had were comfortable enough and the pool area was well used. The hotel is convenient to the main strip of shops along the waterfront.

    We had a room on the beachside of the road with a kitchenette... with a small balcony with a view of the beach and waves. The place is old and ageing... it’s OK, but the little things are lacking maintenance. All in all... it’s a good place to stay... I gave it a C+ for the amenities and a B+ for the location. It’s a pity we had to wait for over an hour for our room once we got there. Expedia said it we could move in at 15:00 hrs and we had to wait until 16:00hrs (their check in time). But it was 4th of July and they gave us a free hot dog at the pool while we waited.

  • 4.0.Fair

    We were only in Kona for one night and thank god for that as my kids (and us adults to) were terrified of sleeping in our room. The room absolutely stunk of urine, the balcony doors didn’t shut, the adjoining door to the room beside us was falling apart so felt like whoever was next door could come into our room and the patrons beside the hotel were very scary to say the least. I have never had to write a review like this before and feel bad doing so but felt I had no choice. We were charged $10 for parking to that we didn’t know about. On the upside the staff seemed very pleasant and helpful. I can say that we would def never stay here again.

    I booked without reading reviews until after I had booked. I must say I was worried. However, I needed have been. The rooms are basic but good for what we required. A couple of bugs had crawled in from outside but that is not unusual given the climate in Hawaii. They were not a problem. Beds and space were good. Kids loved the pool area and I felt relaxed to have them go off and safely enjoy themselves. You cant beat the location of this place. It is in the middle of everything and you can walk anywhere in town. My kids and I actually enjoyed this place more than some of the five star hotels we stayed in on our recent vacation. Just a much more relaxed environment. Would happily come back and stay again.

    Value for money but no frills.

    Convenient location with many restaurants and shops in easy walking distance. Comfortable beds but it was cold at the time and there was no option of adding a blanket. Too late to ask in the early hours of the morning! Bathroom was very small and quite dated but it was clean and for an overnight stay this was an ok place for us. Not quite the Hilton but we've seen a lot worse over the years.
