The 1.5-star Uncle Billy’s Kona Bay Hotel is a Hawaiian family owned hotel with a wonderful location in Kona on the Big Island. It is close to all water activities, restaurants, night life and cultural activities. Uncle Billy’s is a budget hotel, staffed by family members with an emphasis on Hawaiian history and culture.
Although the hotel doesn’t have a restaurant on property, however the hotel offers complimentary Aloha Breakfast available to all guests from 6:30 am – 8:30 am daily. Property amenities include both an adult and children’s swimming pool, complimentary wireless internet access, 24-hour desk, laundry facilities, evening security, parking (fee) and internet kiosk (fee).
The hotel is located very near the Kona Inn Shopping Village. Formerly a hotel, it has been renovated into a nice boutique type shopping venue with art stores, gift shops and clothing stores. It is also home to the Kona Inn Restaurant, a great place to watch sunsets while sipping on a Mai Tai. Other restaurants, shops and bars are located along Ali’i Drive, as well as many water activities.
The property and the rooms are very dated, so if you are looking for moderate accommodations this would not be the hotel for you, but if you are looking for a true budget hotel in a great location this might be the place to be.
