The Royal Kona Hotel can be a good fit some people but not the best for others. It is an old hotel that really hasn't been kept up in terms of maintenance and facilities. It is also a hotel that does not have any beach area in front of it but more of a rocky cliff area. This said, if your plan is to go to Hawaii and stay in the hotel, this would not be the best fit.
However, if like me, you are planning to use it basically as a stop to sleep, take a shower, etc. this would be the perfect stop. It is not on the very expensive range, staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and you can at some point take advantage of the pool, restaurants and overall its magnificent location. The views from the hotel are amazing and it's location is ideal to travel from here to other places on the Big Island. If walking, it is located centrally near the tourist area and you are close to everything. If you are driving, you are just in the midpoint to go the other locations.
In summary, I am not crazy about the hotel but I think it was a good fit for my plan to stay in Hawaii.
