The Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Kailua-Kona was very quiet. The building looked to be of older construction that had recently been updated. Could not hear a sound from any other rooms. The room had nice touches like reading lights built into the bed, Keurig coffee maker

We stayed at this hotel for just one night as we were staying at a timeshare property afterwards. We were very pleased with this Holiday Inn Express - the rooms were very nice & had everything we needed. The hotel is just a block or two to the main downtown area of Kona where

Our standard room was clean and spacious. The hot breakfast was very good, highlighted by hot Cinnabon buns. Staff was very pleasant, knowledgeable, and multilingual. Very nice bedding and towels. Open seating in the lobby, breakfast room, and pool area allows birds to enter

Better shot of Keurig coffeemaker, refrigerator and sink.
Area to sit with computer or to write. This room had many tables to use.

Mattress was just right.
Keurig, microwave and separate sink.
I looked for the address of the Daylight Mind Coffee Co. and found more than one address. Check your wedding venue address and mapquest the route between the address and the address of the Holiday Inn Express, which is 75-146 Sarona Road, Kona Hawaii 96740.

Aloha, We do not offer a shuttle service. You can try speedishuttle. I believe they charge about $30-35 to Kona. A taxi is around $35. We are a 15 minute walk from the Kailua Pier where there is a small beach area.

Yes, there is free parking. It is a small lot but we managed to get a spot every night.
