big island hotel?

Can anyone recommend hotels on the Big Island? We are flying into Kona, but we will be going to the National Park on the other side of the island. If you have any suggestions it would be great! Thanks in advance.

If you haven't picked up the Big Island Revealed book yet, you should!! They have a ton of hotel reviews in there that might be helpful.

We've stayed pretty low-budget there. I can recommend the Holo Holo Inn in Volcano--it's a hostel, but very nice! We stayed in one of the private en suite rooms and it was very comfortable. The owners are very friendly, and there's a shared kitchen. The house is set back in a lush area, and it's super convenient to the nat'l park.

I have to recommend O's Bistro (formerly Oodles of Noodles) in Kona--their tuna noodle casserole (seared ahi on orchiette pasta with shitake mushrooms and shoestring onions..mmm...pardon the drool...) is TO DIE FOR. It's enough reason to go to Kona. In Hilo, head to Cafe Pesto for good eats.

Enjoy! We love the Big Island!

The Hilton Waikoloa is amazing...it has a tram to take you from end to end of the resort. I highly reccomend.
