Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Positives: The hotel is close to restaurants and shopping in Kona. The beds were fine, there were many channels on the TV, the shower had great water pressure, and the eggs/bacon for breakfast were good, but there were many problems with the hotel. Negatives: First off, the only working elevator was quite inconvenient, as I had to go through THREE exterior doors to use it. Try doing this alone with two suitcases and a bag of food. The safe in the room didn’t work, the Keurig was broken, and I only requested clean towels via the housekeeping form that they would only accept before 9 AM the morning of requested service, but never received. The light above my bed was out, there was rust around the door frames, and the biggest complaint, THERE WAS NO REGULAR COFFEE AT BREAKFAST, only decaf. I mean, this is Kona! The coffee is famous and so good that I can drink it without cream! I can deal with a lot of crap, but when your Keurig is broken and there is no regular coffee at a hotel that costs $300 per night, for the love of Pele, get it together, Holiday Inn!

You know what for the price that we paid this hotel is not bad at all. I guess my one comment is the free breakfast doesnt have a hot meal and needs to be picked up on the front desk.
