Nice hotel located next to the beach

Posted Mar 25, 2015
Pros: Clean, close to the beach
Cons: Prices at the restaurant.
Location: Right next to the pier. Snorkeling, swimming, boat tours. Shopping, dining.
We stayed at the Marriott Courtyard one night while we were waiting for our condo to open up. The room was a typical 2 double bed set up although nicely decorated. The beds were very comfortable!! We immediately headed down to the pool/beach area which was very nice although a little small. We had some drinks at the pool side bar and found the entire area very relaxing. The next morning we woke up early as we were still adjusting to the time change. We looked around for a breakfast place and found the Honu's on the Beach restaurant. We looked at the prices and found it to be very expensive. We opted for a coffee from a small shop nearby and ate at the restaurant across the street.

Hotel did not look like the pictures on Expedia

Posted Mar 25, 2015
Buyer beware, this is not "Marriott the resort." This is a hotel that was converted to a Marriott. I was disappointed when I arrived to an outdated hotel with odors in the lobby. The rooms had a mold/mildew smell. The beach and pool were less than desirable. From the hotel rooms you see the parking lot. There is a large garbage dumpster in the back.

quaint marriott

Posted Mar 24, 2015
Pros: Liked the quaintness, not crowded, close to everything in town
Cons: morre lounge chairs needed by pool
Location: right in own, close to shops, recreational activities, restaurants
This hotel is smaller, and family friendly. Pool is a little short on lounge chairs, restaurant/pool bar are great, highly recommend the poke', very small beach area, but close to everything in town, walking distance, plus there is a trolley, only $2. Lots of recreational activities nearby

good location

Posted Mar 23, 2015
Pros: location
Cons: checking in process
we did not spend too much time within the hotel, thus we feel the high price paid for the hotel is not worthwhile. it might be a better idea to stay in a lower cost hotel and spend the money in the rest of the trip

Close to everything

Posted Mar 15, 2015
Pros: Abc store located downstairs near lobby which was handy and the rooms were nice
Cons: Hotel staff aren't overly friendly.
Location: Lots near by. Lots of restaurants and the beach is right at your doorstep
This hotel met our expectations. Hotel was nice and is one of the biggest in Kona. Lots of restaurants around and nice beach. Paying $15 per day parking was annoying but at least there was lots of it. Hotel was easy to find and we got a room upgrade to partial ocean view, which wS nice. Didn't like that the smoking area was in the car park and so far away. Hotel staff pleasant but overly friendly.

Perfect location! Close to the airport and beach!

Posted Mar 11, 2015
Absolutely loved this place! Very clean! Staff was very friendly and recommended a lot of good activities for us. I would recommend buying the buffet breakfast just because the food was amazing with a lot of variety and it was only $5 on top of our room for the both of us to have breakfast!

Very nice

Posted Mar 4, 2015
This is a very nice hotel sitting right in a little white sand beach inlet. Staff was very nice and accommodating as we needed a last minute room added. They seem very service oriented without being opulent. I still think it's crazy to spend $225 on a room but considering the comparables, I'd say there is value here. They have us a package for $5 more that included an excellent breakfast which would have cost $24 each.

Great Motel, with everything close by.

Posted Mar 1, 2015
Pros: Loved the sandy cove at the motel, and the location. I was able to walk to numerous shopping centers, and eat at several close restaurants.
Cons: Maybe some updates in the rooms. Newer shower/tubs, but overall, not much. I had to think hard to even come up with that.
Location: Great restaurants across the street from the motel. The pier is next door, so you don't have to travel to para-sail, fish, or take boats to sight see.
Motel is right on the beach with it's own sandy beach front. Great snorkeling location. I saw many species of fish and even a sea turtle in the bay. The service at the small bar/grill at the pool was fantastic, and the prices were very reasonable. Overall excellent experience, and will stay there again in the future.
