Also during this time of the year the place remains less crowded and by the start of June peoples start to pour in and the hotel prices rise. Though not that much. You can always find a hotel costing $40 to $60 any time of the year.
The best time to travel here is September and October. Hotel rates are cheap, and if you are fortunate enough, you might find a one fifty dollar four star hotel. The island is huge and divided into two halves, Kailua-Kona and Hilo. It might take more than one week to visit all the attractions. The wise way would be to land in one half and depart from the other; also you might need to change accommodation. Staying in one half and visiting other half of the island would not be wise. The public transportation here is not that great and the ideal way of traveling the island would be hiring a car. https://www.kayak.com/Hawaii-United-States-Car-Rentals.129.crr.html
