No TVs or air-conditioning, but lots of south Kona charm.
More than just a budget inn, this property is a landmark and continues to offer simple, affordable accommodations to island visitors and residents. Located in Captain Cook with views of the ocean and the Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park, this charming property seems to have been plucked from a side street in small town Japan. A wing was added in the 1970s, bringing the room total to 64. Rooms have simple furnishings and either private or shared baths. The tatami room offers a traditional setting and serves as a gathering place for locals. The restaurant is also a gem, providing breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu is a collection of simple and authentic regional dishes with Japanese flair. Locals in the know drive miles for the inn's famous pork chops.
