We spent two nights at this Inn. The room is very basic, it has a refrigerator and a ceiling fan and a TV which we could not get to work. In the lounge there is a microwave but no cups, utensils, etc as well as bottled water.. At times there was a staff member present but most of the time there is nobody at the front desk.. It is located very close by to the town where you have tourist shops and only a few restaurants (you must check what their hours are): Bamboo Restaurant, Kohala Coffee Mill, a Mexican restaurant, and an organic market that offers food. In Kapa'a there is a Chinese restaurant, Rainbow Restaurant. Across the street from the Inn there is a large supermarket. Take a short drive to Pololu Lookout. On the way there, on the left side there is a food truck called Fresh off the Grid that offers all kinds of food, worth a stop. I do not think there are any other hotels in this town.

We have stayed here many times over the past 10 years. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We enjoy bringing our breakfasts to the courtyard and relaxing into the morning in the comfortable chairs of the open parlor. As an older hotel sometimes noise travels too easily. The staff are kind and sweet. The location is just right for us: downtown, not far from Pololu Valley, beaches, and whale watching. It's a lovely place to slow down and to assimilate the spirit of Hawaii.

Bugs, Bugs, Bugs. The place is not taken care of. My company personal thought it would be cool but because it's the only thing for miles to stay, it worse than any hostel. No clean anything. Rude Employees. Outrageous prices. They've seen cleaner condemned buildings. What a joke. Never stay here. Drive to the south along the coast. Much better bang for the buck.

Staff were very hospitable, flexible and always were willing to meet our needs. I cannot thank enough for their attentiveness and care. When there was some toilet issue, they called the plumber right away. I also liked the fact that the location is walking distance to a grocery shop and organic coffee shop. Feels safe and there is a playground for kids and a big grass field where they can run around.

Liked · It was a cozy yet not extravagant place to stay - windows on both sides of the room (plus a ceiling fan) allowed for a cross breeze at all times if you desired. Ah yea, and a friendly little critter visited my room by obtaining entrance via the ample crack / space under my door! Disliked · The fan had two speeds: fast and off! Cobwebs in the corners of the bathroom, grime on the bathroom door (inside by the door knob - expected, but would be nice if cleaned after every visit!). **No Street Number to find it!!** I’m from waaaay out-of-state, and was looking for 55-514 Hawi Road as well as the name (Kohala Village Inn) when I drove in... never saw either because they don’t exist on the property. Recommend this be done do it agrees with what one finds on the website.

One of the weirder places I’ve ever stayed. Seemed entirely reasonable until we got there. When we landed at Ito airport we got a call from them to ensure we were coming. They sent an email with instructions. We had a lockbox on our room; they gave us the code. That was easy enough. Nice, plantation style place. Stayed four nights. Never saw anyone in the reception area. Called several times after about 5 for advice or information and no one ever picked up. Turns out it is owned by the community and it’s largely on your own. the room was fine; a little tight, but clean, freshly painted, nice tile on the floor plenty of hot water and AC that worked; inside hallway which had chairs and could be a drawback as people coming in could make a lot of noise; wasn't a problem for us, but there were people who were talking in the hall when we were trying to sleep. . Supposedly there’s a restaurant associated with the place but we could never find it. Now, Kohala is kind of remote, 2h from Hilo, about an hour from Kona, and as we drove up there late afternoon we found almost nothing was open for dinner. We stopped off en route in Konoka'a, reviewed below. Subsequently in the next town north of Kohala we found several places that were open, and there was a place in Kohala that we didn’t know was available called Sushi Rock, that was really good. Kohala is a small town that was down on its luck as little as 20 years ago but has come back, lots of artsy types and artsy crafts stores, including Cigars and Ukulele’s (pretty nice actually), some good crafts, and a lot of history - King Kamehameha was born here. If you can figure out the restaurant's schedules it’s worth it and we enjoyed it. Pololu Lookout and Kapaa Park are less than a half hour away and each well worth it. So summary- the Hotel was kind of different but it was clean, safe, and accessible. Don’t expect any services at all at the hotel though.

Quite the drive from everything, this part of the island sees a lot of rain. The place is quiet, parking right in front of the building. Like everything else on Hawaii, pretty expensive, if you take into account that this is really only a place to spend the night.

Comfortable, Clean and Casual. This hotel will help you unwind and relax into the “hang loose” culture of Hawaii. The decor is simple but welcoming. The bed was very comfortable and the room had a fresh feel. Loved the lounge, inter courtyard and easy parking. The town is less than a block away.

Could it be? A reasonably priced lodging choice on the Big Island. The Kohala Village Inn is a treat. Plantation-style rooms within walking distance of more than a half dozen good or great restaurants and a short drive to others. If you think Hawaii is all big resorts with no heart, break out and try this place. It's clean, comfortable and has a feel of what I guess was old Hawaii before the luxury hotels set up shop and made everything a tourist attraction. Stayed here three night and would go back for months, if I could. Stay here and enjoy a change of pace on the Big Island. You won't remember a stay at a big brand hotel but I will bet you'll be talking about this place for years. No pool but a short drive to the ocean and a state park. Wonderfully relaxing interior grassy courtyard for guests to sit, read a book or just enjoy the warm breezes.

We stopped at the tourist information place and they recommended the Hub Inn. What a lovely hotel. The building is old plantation style, welcoming and very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is in town, walking distance to restaurants and shops. If staying in Hawi, this is the place to stay.
