    Husband and I, first time in Hawaii. Nice place to stay. True Hawaiian. Staff very nice and friendly! Great location to everything. Would stay there again, would recommend. Could use a little updating, could hear all the nightly traffic. Comfy beds, stayed in Billy's suite.

    The room had cockroaches and it smelled very bad! The bathroom was dirty, the area around the pool also. Internet very slow. It is not at all the Hawaiian Island spirit. We were lucky enough to have to spend there only one night.

    Our first trip to Kona and we chose Uncle Billy's because of its location, which is central to downtown Kona. The hotel is a budget offering so don't expect 5 star but if you want a great location, a comfy bed, clean sheets and towels...More

    Sure they have cable t.v, but did not spend too much time indoors. Kona is too beautiful.

    According to the receptionist, there is supposed to be a hairdryer in the room. However our room didn't have one so the receptionist found one for us to borrow.
