Score from 399 reviews Very good
Staff were unhelpful given it is a tourist destination - unwilling to assist with any query. Lack of dining facilities - cockroaches in room - smell in stairwell. - room odour was not pleasant
Bathroom accessories were dirty. (towels and rubber mat for tub)
Pool and hot tub were nice. Location is great. Staff were friendly. Kanoe especially so. The free wifi was nice and we appreciate that it is secure. It didn't work for part of our stay, but that's just the way it goes. Breakfast was fine.
My friend and I had a wonderful stay at uncle Billy's and will definitely be back again! The front desk staff were so accomodating and the rooms were clean which is paramount. Great price! We loved our stay here!
No bar by the pool/ limited breakfast selection and poor internet connection.
location in the center of Kona, near to shops and restaurants
the worst place out of 10 we stayed during our 3 weeks vacations quite expensive comparing to other 9 hotels we stayed during our 3 weeks vacations ants low standard not very clean paid parking, not easy to find without instructions
The confort and location.
The breakfast was simple. we found so many cockroach in the roon.
Room had a musty, stale smell and set off our allergies.
Price and location
Walkable to everything Easy parking Fresh water in lobby Wifi ok Free breakfast
Carpets need replacing Some mildew Needs a face lift Show up early for breakfast or most items will be gone
The 60's style architecture, with a cute courtyard in the heart of Kona, evokes your inner Hawaiian.
Industrial bathroom lighting + fixtures are out of place. Would benefit from some redecoration and updating.
We were in the annex and that was perfect because we were in Kona for the IronMan World Championships. The location was perfect for ease of getting to different vantage points. It also proved to be invaluable for resting between visiting the different vantage points.
great location, very comfortable
The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Uncle Billy's is right in the middle of everything in Kailua-Kona.
One morning around 0430, there was a trash truck knocking around near by, perhaps on an adjacent street making a terrible racket.
Great location. Budget friendly. Friendly staff. Complimentary continental breakfast. Nice stay. Great if all you need is a clean place to sleep or if you're on a tight budget but want to be in the middle of everything. I would definitely stay here again.
A bit out dated but if you could get pass that then everything else is all good.
Beautiful location,incredibly friendly,helpful staff. Rooms are Very quiet and had a peaceful stay even tho Ironman was happening right in front. Again,the staff was exceptional.
A few difficulties with the room,but staff was quick to respond and solve them
Location was great and pool area was excellent.
Rooms a bit tired and dated for price.
I had a double room and thete was enough space and quite clean.
The hotel met our expectations. no frills basic and clean hotel. little pricy but averaging within Hawaii. Lovely hotel staff. very helpful and friendly. next time will come again.
I liked everything about Uncle Billy’s. I was very comfortable, and felt like I was at home. I’ll be highly recommending this place to my friends when they go to Kona. You can count that I’ll be back to stay at Uncle Billy’s.
I didn’t like Planet Venus, it was to far away to visit.
good location in the middle of kona, some smoking rooms available without disturbuting ohter guests
poor breakfast included
Center of Kona. Right across from the beach. Loved the balcony.
Breakfast was OK
Condition of room was not good
Nothing like it is portrayed on the internet. This place needs a major remodel. It was a joke. Do yourself a favor and find a different place to stay. Trust me...
We were pleasantly surprised after reading some of the above. Very reasonable rates, excellent location, friendly and accommodating staff, room was clean, nice pool area and landscaping.
The hotel was probably built in the early 1960's (?) and could use a general upgrade. That would probably necessitate a rate increase however so maybe not a good idea. Very basic included continental breakfast could be slightly upgraded.
no remote tried to fix remote 2 times dead bugs all over the floor very unhappy they would not change my
