One night stop over

The hotel is tired. If it had a facelift it would be excellent. Can't be beaten for value and location. Breakfast is all you can eat and had lots of variety. Good coffee :)

old and very very noisy!!!

not very expensive but too expensive for what you'll have !!! because you won't sleep in this hotel !!! you ll live with your neighbor and maybe with his wife... old and low quality building: VERY noisy, windows are broken, the walls are very thin...Rebuild a new hotel seems to be the best solution...

Great location!

Uncle Billy's is in Kailua-Kona - SHORT walk to the ocean, restuarants, shops, etc.! Ask for a 3rd or 4th floor room so you can see the ocean & great sunsets from your deck. The hotel could use a "facelift", but it's quaint, casual and convenient. We missed seeing sandy beaches, but experiencing the volcanic rock all around was amazing.

not bad value for money

Hotel is well located in the middle of major atractions, friendly staff, good amenities, safe and electronic key, courtyard with a pool, however the room was in need of a makeover, the TV was an old cathode ray tube type with a faulty remote control, breakfast a bit basic with toast, jam, butter, cofee/tea and papaya or guava fruit slices, at least you could refill, all in all you get what you pay. Found later that the other Uncle Billy's hotel in Hilo is a notch above.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

You can catch the HeleOn bus to Hilo @16:10 from ABC shop next to Marriott Courtyard Hotel, normally free, however a small tip will suffice.

Great, friendly hotel

Shame we were only staying for one night - Uncle Billy's was great! Simple, but comfortable room, excellent location, very friendly staff. They kindly allowed us to check out late as our tour was returning right on check out time - greatly appreciated. Beautiful pool area, a little strange being right on the main street, but very sheltered. Very happy, great value!

good located

staff was nice; breakfast ok, but nothing special, we went out for bf after one day; room was very outdated, but bed was clean; parking at the hotel for 5 dollars/day ok; we liked the free internet access (wifi) in the room; put your valuables in the safe or even better: take it with you, a man tried to get in our room and ran away, when we went to the door! the roomentrances are at the back side, so it would be necessary, the hotel organizes a 24h security there. but it was very good located and for this price we would come back again;

For the price of this hotel it

For the price of this hotel it is perfectly adequate. The room was spacious, clean and tidy; the hotel is just a little tired due to age probably. To our surprise there was a complimentary continental type breakfast included each day, again perfectly adequate for the money. The bed was very comfortable and a good size. The hotel is very handy right in the middle of Kona village.
