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.

Stay

not sure how the rates fair with experience but this hotel needs definite upgrade. a/c was vibrating and was more annoying than the coqui frogs. the elevator was down all week which did not help my mother who had to do two flights of stairs. the continental breakfast could also use a boost. the daily papaya was good but the bread for toast was stale. need milk for kids.

Good for airport stay

Close to the airport. We stayed overnight since we flew into Hilo and would be driving to Kona the next morning. Great value for that purpose, but would not stay there for a full vacation.

Cheap does not always mean acceptable

Our experience was not good at this hotel. It was very old and not kept up at all. I was not expecting a room air conditioner in a hotel. It smelled moldy which I am allergic to. The bathroom had mildew in between the tiles and was not what I considered even standard. The continental breakfast consisted of toast, english muffins, mini muffins and some tropical fruit. There was no cereal, dry or hot, nor was there any yogurt, hard boiled eggs or real orange juice, items I would expect to see in any other continental breakfast. We had to go out to breakfast instead of eating at the hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
