Are there many of these available, and if so, is it less costly to stay this way?

I have just returned from my 2nd trip to Hawaii. I can tell you that you do not have to spend $2-300 a night for a hotel. How much time will you spend in the room? If you are going for the resort experience, you may want to splurge for a big hotel, but if you are goung to see the sights and lie on the beach, choose an inexpensive hotel.

On the Big Island I stayed at the Lion's gate Bed & Breakfast. Bill and Diane are excellent hosts and the breakfasts were fantastic, made mostly with food grown on the property. It is a coffee plantation and macadamia nut farm. They gave us ideas about where to go, what to see and where to eat. They also lent us a great guide book.

We had the best of the three rooms in the house, the only one with a private bathroom and lanai. It cost $95 per night, with breakfast. It was a beautiful room. They have a web site.
