Inaba's Kona Hotel is a family run hotel close to town. This 1920's hotel is actually in the small art & coffee town of Holualoa, just 5 minutes up the hill from Kailua Kona. Perenially popular with Europeans and backpackers, this hotel will charm those on a budget. Singles, Doubles, and rooms with 2 twins, all with separate men's & women's bathrooms down the hall.
From $30 / night for a single person, $35 for Doubles, $40 for rooms with 2 twins, cash only. Call (808) 324-1155 for more info.
The unusual walkway to a spare bathroom out back provides some great views (there are also bathrooms inside and great views from some rooms).
