family trip

this hotel from the outside appeared great, front desk help was wonderful. We did not actually stay the night here we rented the room so when we went to the beach we could shower before getting on the plane. So glad I did not spend my entire vacation at this hotel, it was ok...very musty and the elevated smelled like they used a whole box of carpet freshener. It was ok....not a great room

Below expectations

We've stayed for one night only but this was enough. Although location, staff and continental breakfast was above expectations, hotel is too old, room smells mould and the bathroom was dirty!

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.
