I have visited Holualoa several times for "staycation" and I adore the slow food Holuakoa Cafe, so I was so excited to see that the charming pink hotel across the street is in operation! It is super affordable, $65 a night for sweeping views of Kona and the panoramic coast line. Shared bathrooms didn't bother me for that price, but...

We loved this place! So nice not to stay in a generic hotel for a change. It was built in 1923, so it has some creaky floors and bathrooms are down the hall. Everything is spotlessly clean and comfortable. I felt like I was staying at my grandma's house. There was even soap and shampoo in the shower! The town...

My husband, daughter, and I have lived in Kona for almost 6 years, and we had to do an emergency "staycation" when our landlords lost their minds. We had to get out as quickly as possible. The problem is that we were looking for a place to live at the worst possible time of year because January and February are...

We have stayed here several times over the last 20 years, starting with our honeymoon. It's basic, quaint, and homey. We've had the same comfortable room each time. The window outside our room has no glass--inside and outside blend together here. Some of the residents seem to be family and some boarders, with just occasional tourists. At under $50/night, you...

Staci Is a wonderful host, and very helpful with the local info, Staci went out of her way to make us feel at home. The 1926 charm of the family owned hotel, made it so much more than anyone could ask for, its open and airy, and clean. Loved not having a TV, radio or a clock. Did not need...

To be honest we did not stay here! We stopped in to take a look around. It is old,decrepit, and need of repair but a lot of homes look like this in the area. Oceanview rooms were 55 and mountainside 45 a night. It looked like the owners also live here. The highlight for me was the view fro the...

This historic building has a lot of character. The view from the upper level is beautiful — you can see the ocean and the town below. I enjoyed the location as it's on a street with quite a few art galleries. Our room was basic, but the bed was comfortable and the shared washrooms are clean. Bernadette is welcoming and...

Stayed here for two nights while getting settled into the Big Island. Family run and very friendly! The hotel is from the 30's, so don't go in expecting dazzling tile floors and beautiful drapes. If you are looking to save money, meet some wonderful people, and get a legitimate local experience, stay here! Try to do it Monday night as...

Ok, this is a historic place, built in the 1929, owned by apparently the same japanese family since then (Inaba), and please note, I LOVE japanese people, but this place was, to say the least, a real disappointment. Ok, it is cheap, only 40$ per night/room (double or triple). OK, the true spirit of Aloha is all over the places...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set in a colorful 1920s building, this modest hotel is 4 miles from Hulihee Palace museum in the Kailua-Kona Village, 5 miles from Kahaluu Beach Park and 6 miles from Keauhou Bay, in a quiet art and coffee Village named Holualoa. The hotel sits across the road from restaurants, cafe's, and a general store. Art galleries line the street within walking distance. This is Kona Coffee Country and tasting opportunities surround the property. This hotel is one of the last affordable family run historic hotels offering Vintage Hawaii warmth and charm. Bright, basic private rooms come with free Wi-Fi, parking, and offer shared bathrooms and common areas. Many rooms and common areas offer partial views of the Pacific Ocean and those famous Hawaiian Sunsets. ... more   less
