                  The view from our room was perfect and the grounds are wonderfull

                  The bed was on rollers and and slid around on the tile floor . the kitchenett was just to small. This place does not supply shampoo wich is ok if you know this in advance you can prepair for this

                • Couple
                  5.0

                  The room rate was appealing and proximity to the beach, restaurants, pubs and shops was good.

                  Reception staff appeared to have no record of our booking and were not very vwelcoming - we were treated like an incovenience. Live and dead cochroaches in the hotel room; poor room cleanliness; not at all what you would expect from this hotel based on the hotel lobby.

                  Lcation. Kitchenette.

                  The first night I was severely bitten by some bugs and could not sleep at all. I could not call recetion becouase there is no receptionist after 8pm till 8am in the morning, and there was no phone in the room. The next day I reported the incident and was moved to another very noisy room facing Ali Drive, with 24 hours street and trafic noise, where I could not sleep due to the noise. I asked for a quiet room, but was told that ider I take the noisy room or have my reservation cancelled. The Booking web site mentioned free parking at the hotel, but the parking space was very limitted, there was hardly space for not more that 30% of the rooms, I had to park my rental card elswhere.

                • Couple
                  3.2

                  Great location. Within walking distance to town.

                  Why is there not enough parking? Why do you not have any amenities? Such as lotion, shampoo and conditioner? Why do you not have any tub Mats? Why does the room floor look like an ashtray? Why do you not have a clothes iron? I know its not a hotel, but I've stayed at cheaper places and got all of this stuff in the least bit. Idk about the other units there, but ours looked like squatters have been living in there the whole time. Please renovate that trashy room! Mahalo nui Loa.

                  Location.

                  I have been charged double what I was quoted. I brought this to attention of the desk clerk who told me it had been corrected only to find that it had not been done . a subsequent phone call was made and again I was assured it was done . It still has not been taken care of. Also, The parking needs to be addressed. I should have been told that there was insufficient parking spaces for the number of apartments at the facility. I came home late from diving and had to search for a parking space off property.

                  This was the 2nd time we stayed at Kona Islander Inn (we went over to Hilo for two nights). Because these are time-share rooms, they can be very different from each other. Our 1st room was very nice in every way. The room this time was not nearly as nice. The kitchenette didn't have any cooking utensils (electric skillet, etc.) or they were in a locked cupboard. The bed was so hard that I had to sleep on the couch. The hotel grounds are still beautiful, but the rooms can vary greatly. I would asked to see the room before I moved my luggage in. The location of the hotel is perfect.

                  The rooms vary greatly - check the room before you move your luggage in.

                  The beautiful grounds and walking distance to town.

                  Bugs in our room, kitchen. Strange kitchen, bathroom combo

                  Close proximity to Kona

                  AC noisy, Coffee making facilities did not work

                  great location

                  advertise toiletries but no toiletries supplied. no maid service at all.

                • Family with children
                  5.0

                  I like the setting of the hotel, the grounds were well maintained and lush.

                  Beds were uncomfortable and the room was lacking. No one on duty after 8 pm so if you needed anything there was no one there to help you. Poorly informed as to what services were available, although it says hotel, there was very little in the way of hotel amenities, need to specify that these are rented rooms from private owners, so no room cleaning, or towels after first day unless you want to pay for them or wash your towels at laundromat. A little disappointed, other than the landscape not a lot to write home about.

                  Kona Islander Inn has a great location, a beautiful garden area, a hot tub & pool and the location is perfect. The room we got was well stocked with kitchen implements. The bed was nice - I would definitely stay here again.

                  9.6

                  Staff were very kind and welcoming. The room was much nicer than I expected however the bed was hard and not the most comfortable. I will certainly stay there again.

                  7.4

                  Old place, with individual apartment rented by the owners and managed by the property. Nice pool, free barbecues, helpful staff.

                  Small parking lot, on first come first saved basis.

                  Location

                  Carpet had many stains. The screen doors to the patio and the one at the front door were broken and hard to move. I saw a german cockroach in the shower. THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH PARKING FOR THE NUMBER OF GUESTS THEY HAD, WHAT A HASSLE!!! When I made the reservation I requested a smoking room, they had changed the rules by the time I had arrived and I had to go off property to smoke, again WHAT A HASSLE!!! You had to physically plug in the ceiling fan, no switch. The kitchen sink was also the bathroom sink, yuck. I was very glad to get out of there!!! I'm not picky, what a dump!!!
