    We couldn't check out of this hotel fast enough. I think it's for an older crowd who doesn't mind a mediocre hotel with dated rooms and a lack of things to do. Even the hotel manager recommended a better hotel.More

    December is the rainy season but the temps are still in the 80's. Kona is on the leeward side of the island so it gets less rain than Hilo. KOA is the nearest airport for access to the west side of the island.
