Perfect Weekend

Staff is great. Room had an amazing view. If all I did was sit on the Lanai and look out over the water my weekend would have been complete.

Great price and even better location.

You can't ask for a better location. The hotel elevator was old but it did its job to get us from lobby to our floor. The room was in decent condition and the staff was friendly. I didn't encounter any problems at the hotel. Its was easy to check in and out.

Average hotel in a dreary, quiet town

Hilo is one of the wettest places in the world. We found no dining or night life within a reasonable distance from this hotel, and ended up spending most of our trip traveling to drier climates, up to and usually over an hour's drive away. I'd never stay here again for reasons of seeking sunshine or beach fun.

Great stay!

We couldn't ask for better. The location is perfect. The rooms are dated but very clean and comfortable. You use them to home out of not live in. Good water pressure in the shower. Good AC. Awesome presentation when you enter the lobby. Great staff and terrific housekeeping. We loved our balcony facing the ocean andCoconut Island. Would stay there every time but would eat elsewhere. Dining area has it all but the food is not the greatest. However, there are plenty of eating places nearby as the hotel has the ideal location.

one night stay

The hotel was fairly nice. Everything worked out good for us. We only stayed overnight. We went there to visit our nephew that was there at a youth program. I would stay at this hotel again. We had the buffet there it was good but a bit pricey.

Much more than we expected!

Well kept hotel with extremely helpful staff. Nice view from room, enjoyed the balcony a lot. Restaurant and Lounge were popular with hotel visitors as well and the local residents. Really liked that we could walk to so many places too. We will definitely be staying at Hilo Hawaiian on our next visit.
