Overall, the property is great. Rm 409 has a view of a huge banyan tree and the lobby exit. We opted for 2 Queen size beds. The room was very spacious. Larger than I had expected. We had dinner at the Queens Restaurant for Seafood Buffet night @ $59 ea. A very nice selection of food, Salads and Desserts. Our waitress was very friendly The only negative to this property which is a very big problem for every property in Hilo are the annoying Coqui frogs which chirp at sundown non stop until sunrise. Perhaps being on a higher floor may lessen the sound. But it may cause a problem for light sleepers.

Beautifully renovated property in every way, very spacious rooms. AC was able to run on Low- really quiet - once the desired temperature was reached. Sheets were super soft. A small refrigerator was also available. Great stay!

I like the associates working at the breakfast Buffett room, all of the ladies working in the breakfast lounge was very polite and really provided a great customer experience and Awesone customer service. the rooms was awsome and very clean. the parking lot was very accessible and I found parking to be easy. Checking in was very quick and thorough. I will be back in the near future.

Everything services close to everything aloha was good in general

It charges resort fee but doesn't provide resort type of experience and amenities. There is only one swimming pool on site but it's always been dirty with floating leaves.

Location ......................................................................................

I liked it all!!! It was great to come back to a clean room, bed made up, and more clean towels! The staff was friendly, very helpful and overall great! BEST hotel stay ever!!!

The staff was friendly and always available to help. But I didn't like the overall condition of the hotel.

Great location with beautiful view. Friendly staff. Nice happy hour in the bar downstairs.

Every thing was great. Good location for getting around. Except the parking.

Excellent stay. Room was nice and well maintained. Hotel felt comfortable, clean, and up to date. Free reusable water bottles were a nice touch too!

I didnt like the smell in the hotel as its old budiling i think.

Loved the friendliness. The food at the restaurant and the rooms were very nice. Not updated but very clean and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone
