awaiting air transport

Comfortable and nice location, a short distance to the airport. Waterfront and watched local fisherman dive for fish. Would have loved to join them! Although rocky, the water appeared clear, clean and full of life.

Captain Obvious!

This hotel is run down to say the least. The room was dark, dingy and smelled. You know that commercial where the guy picks the bad hotel room and Captain Obvious comments? Well this was it. I did not remove my shoes at any point during our stay. We actually rented another hotel room in a different town for several days so as not to feel we were wasting our vacation. There we saw Uncle Billy's in Kona and it too was rundown but in a great location. (No, we didn't stay there). The staff were pleasant, but would not meet your gaze. They did give new towels daily and pathetically, that was luxurious by comparison. There was construction of a pond atrium area which was funny juxtaposed against the bucket in the lobby to catch the rain. The location was good. It was close to a Japanese garden and the ocean (no swimming beach). Hilo is rainy but has a more relaxed, community feel to it). My advice, this hotel may have been lovely once, but no money has gone into upkeep. Spend yours elsewhere!

You should STOP selling this hotel rooms

Hotel has very limited parking spaces, so they expect you to find street parking and park over night. Front desk clerks were not friendly. Rooms look like they have not been updated for ovr 50 years. Room did not smell fresh, ba bathroom , cheap soap and hand lotion. Beds were not comfortable. Don't be fooled by "so called" continental breakfast, it offered 1 choice of fruit (papaya), wheat & white bread breads cheap jelly and butter,1 choice of cheap juice, cheap coffee and only 1 choice of lipton black tea. I would not recommend this otel.

Reasonable Hotel

We, 3 persons, could enjoy staying this hotel with free breakfast and perfect location. However, the room smells little moldy, especially from bathroom.

Was OK

A Two hundred room hotel with 25 Car parking lot! You have to find a place on the street but read all the signs before parking or you will get a ticket or towed away. Inside run down but OK Needs a lot of updating to get a higher rating. The hotel next door looks about the same but has better parking. I did not see any other hotels in Hilo?

average for a cheap price

Old hotel that needs renovation. I do understand their situation because of the upcoming expiration of their lease so what's the point of renovating if the land is gonna be brought back to the govt.
