Wild Ginger Inn Hotel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I liked the old local style ambiance. It was nice and mellow and non pretentious

No air conditioning so be prepared to leave the windows open and that means having all the birds chirp all night long because you in the middle of a jungle good luck trying to sleep there unless you're totally zonked out the only good thing about this place is this location

This was a simple, quaint motel located a few blocks from Hilo Bay in the older part of town. We found the staff pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. I found the breakfast offerings delicious; tropical juices and fruits and delicious homemade breads, banana and another, not sure what it was, but it was my favorite. When we travel we are rarely in our room except to sleep at night so this location suited our needs perfectly and was definitely easy on the budget. I would recommend this location to anyone who is looking for a simple and inexpensive place to stay in Hilo.

The building we stayed in was very run down and the floor seemed slanted on one side. The floor was sticky and poorly painted. The windows rattled every time a car drove by on the highway. The beds appeared clean, but were old and uncomfortable. The screens were filthy and the bathroom appeared dirty, but that may be due to how old the hotel is. I would not stay here again.

At first the age of the hotel was not impressive but it grows on you as being homey.
