- What's Included
We stayed at this hotel during our Cosmos tour of the Hawaiian Islands. We had paid the supplement for ocean view, but we soon discovered that ocean view is not ocean front and it means that you can sort of see the sea in the background. We got a room in the 4th floor on the street end of the building that faces the sea. This meant that we were looking into the backyard of the ABC store that has deliveries at 5 AM and the trucks beep non stop when they reverse and unload. You could see the sea in the background in a corner. We think that they gave us a suite with a living room and two bathrooms to compensate for the view. But the thing is we didn't want a suite, we wanted a room with ocean views without the trucks beeping. So it didn't compensate. My advice is first avoid the Courtyard Marriotts and 2nd don't expect good views when you book ocean views, ask for ocaen front. In this particular hotel avoid the rooms like 101, 301,201,401 and 2 that are not in the middle. The ones in the middke have better view and don't overlook a carpark. The location was good, close to everything and the town is very charming.
King Kamehameha would be ashamed of this hotel. He would say, "Why would you put my name on such a lousy hotel?" The hotel is a very old decrepit place that is too cold, smells bad, has lousy service, charges outrageous parking fees, and has loud entertainment outside (some "Iron Man" convention--whatever that is). I did not feel well at all when I was staying at this hotel. The air conditioning is frigid in the lobby, and in the hall ways of the hotel there is a terrible smell from the low quality cleaning material they use at this hotel. The location is nothing special: Kona is inherently walkable anywhere you go. Also, the "ocean view" is no big deal: the ocean is far away and it is definitely not worth paying extra for. I have seen Motel 6s that have better standards and more comfortable.
My brother and I stayed at the King Kamehamea Kona Beach hotel between October 9-15. When you first walk into the lobby, you are welcomed by frigid arctic air from their terrible air conditioning. On top of that, there is a terrible scent emanating from the air to possibly cover up who knows what. Who knows how healthy it is to breathe the cleaning fumes? A major event from Iron Man was taking place just outside of our hotel room. It was loud and we were unable to use our room for peace and quiet during much of our stay as this event appeared to continue for a few nights. The water from the shower is slow to go down the drain so you end up with a pool of your own filth on you while you shower. Additionally, my brother Michael became ill from the strong cleaning solvents used to clean the room. The strong scent was overbearing and couldn't breath well. The Ac was either too strong or had to turn it off. The thermostat didn't appear to work. Also, the heater didn't work at all. They also charge an outrageous $16 parking fee daily when you can easily park on the street for free. We were a few rooms over from the elevator but we still were able to hear the elevators going up and down all the time. The people that respond on social media to the critics are also very rude and unprofessional. I'll soon post a youtube video from inside our room.
This is our third time staying here and it never disappoints. Everyone at the hotel is so friendly and make you feel so welcome. It's located within walking distance to many shops and restaurants, so able to walk everywhere. I highly recommend this to anyone going to Kona! So peaceful and relaxing!
The hotel was beautiful and centrally located in the shopping district. My only complaint is that the beach was tiny and was so sheltered that there were no waves. This would be a plus for families with small children - but my teens were anxious for some more action.
