This hotel charged a cleaning fee that was not clearly displayed in the advertised price. When the fee is included, the cost is in the range of other places around or higher. On top of this, they actually do a very poor job with cleaning. In the bathroom there was an old soap left, stains on the shower bathtub surfaces....

This place is terrible. They do not provide any room cleaning services. But they charge for a cleaning fee after check out which is pricey. You are expected to get your toilet papers once the provided one is over. Two towels are provided. You are supposed to wash them in the laundry facility provided and pay more. I'm here on...

Location was nice next to Da Poke Shack. Property is older, but good for a quick cheap stay. Was very disappointed in some cleaning and booking fees that were not disclosed on Tripadvisor's site. Be careful though, there were some booking fees and a cleaning fee that was added that was not originally disclosed when booking. There were some nearby...

We stayed at this property 4/26-3/6/2017 condo #415. I agree with previous comments that the current condition is not depicted in any of the online pictures. The complex is dated and needs maintenance and repairs. Pool is almost a hazard to use as the tiles are almost all off and jagged edges are all around the pool edge. Our condo...

When I looked at the reviews for this hotel, it looked promising. However when we checked in and saw the bathroom tub's condition, I was shocked that they would even rent this room out. If possible, I will include a photo. The bottom of the tub was rusted in a large space, making it unusable for a bath. I have...

The unit we stayed in, 203, was well organized, and nicely furnishes. The king and queen beds were comfortable. The kitchen is new and has a high quality dishwasher. Great views and designated parking under the units.

REVIEW IS SPECIFIC TO UNIT 310, CASTLE KONA BALI KAI. Each unit is individually owned and therefore different. It’s with great regret that I must rate this particular unit with two stars. If it weren’t for the fact that cleanliness is at the very top of our list of priorities, it would be rated higher, if it weren’t for the...

Great location overlooking the ocean - no beach (#318); however shabby interior and furnishing, barebones supplies and questionable housekeeping. Had to request kitchen linens. Reception desk seemed to tolerate guests and not very welcoming.

After reading other reviews, I can only believe that there is a wide variety of quality,upkeep and cleanliness of the room at this property. I don't mind accommodations that are not updated as long as they are clean and well maintained. This met none of those requirements. It was dated, dirty, shabby and poorly maintained. The room smelled musty, the...

I had phoned ahead to confirm check in procedure as I had read there is not a 24 hour front desk. So I was glad I had clarified the procedure. We arrived quite late so it was a little confusing to figure it all out in the dark but we managed ok. We had booked a 2 bedroom with king,...
