Uncle Billy's is located less that three miles from Hilo Airport. The location on Hilo Bay is close the Queen Lili'uokalani's gardens. The staff members were friendly, and the internet connection was excellent. We appreciated the daily continental breakfast with the fresh papaya. The hotel gardens are lovely, and I enjoyed the small pool as well.
If you are looking for luxury, this is probably not the hotel for you. The decor is stuck in the 1970s. Other than the breakfast, the hotel lacks a restaurant, but there is a small convenience store on the property.
Nice and quiet nite time...close to every where....All good
Need to open the bar.... Karaoke lidat..!..Till` about 9:00pm....I would be a winner....Malama Pono
the location was perfect, the staff was friendly and extremely helpful, the breakfast was ample and it had all the necessities, it was also incredibly inexpensive.
The room in general was fine, however the sink area looked as though it might fall to the floor and had holes in the formica, there were broken tiles and the bath area looked in need of repair. Thus the price. The staff does make up for it in charm though!
We liked the location, friendly staff. We loved the view of the bay we had and the garden was very beautiful.
We didn't like the carpets in hallway or our room, they were dirty, had an odor and desperately needed to be replaced. We also would have liked a better variety of breakfast choices.
Helpful friendly staff, location and adequate morning breakfast particularly the fresh papaya
Good location & not expansive...
A bit old & the hotel needs a complete renovation... the breakfast is pretty poor...
friendly staff, great location to city centre, waterfront and airport
The whole hotel looks like it's stuck in the 1970's.. All design and facilities are very tired and sub standard for today's values
Wifi never working, better forget the breakfast, dirty, worn out, smelly
Real Aloha~ Great front desk staff, beautiful location on Banyan Drive within walking distance of Liliuokalani Park and Coconut Island. Nice views of Hilo Bay from the room, sounds of the ocean lapping below the hotel at night. And the Coqui frogs were serenading!
Breakfast is poor.
Friendly staff, helpful.
Hotel older or less maintained than in Kona. WLAN was a drag... More off then on and if on ....sloooow.
Cheap and cheerful for what you pay. Good breakfast.
Very run down and in need of renovation. Carpets filthy! Tiles cracked and broken. Gardens and ponds under renovation but even just a waterblast would have helped. No pool loungers.
Staff great-friendly & helpful Clean Quite Bed comfortable
Staff was very friendly and helpful. It was easy to navigate to our room.
I liked the view from the breakfast area.
There was a bug crawling on the pillow.
affordable price and walking distance to a nice park and the harbor
Everything was fair to good until I needed to sleep!
The people next door was up till 2:45am talking very load. By the time they went to bed I could hear them snoring thru the adjoining door. That kept me up all night.
Staffs are hard working and pleasant
Abundance of ants in rooms
The island ambiance aka the frogs
Free Wifi and on site parking
Pool closed for repair. Booking.com should have revealed this. Hotel down at heel. Corridors were smelly but the room was quite clean.
Breakfast included Geographical situation Comfort
Wifi not reachable Noise of birds
Location, location, location!
Mold on shower wall; 1/2 roll of toilet paper plus 1 new roll...as I also work in the industry on the Kona side, I foumd these two things to be uncalled for.
Very poor breakfast. Surprisingly they could not hold our luggage for some hours as most hotels do. Very outdated!!
Our room was comfortable, ALL of the staff were friendly, helpful and cordial. The housekeeper for our room and the women who worked at the continental breakfast each morning were especially friendly and helpful. The close proximity to the beach and the ease of walking around in parks close by the property made our stay in Hilo more enjoyable. Uncle Billy's General Store was also a "plus", good food, cold sodas, great coffee and, especially, very friendly staff!
Maybe it was papaya season, but we would have preferred more variety in the fruit for breakfast and perhaps some other condiments, peanut butter for example, would have been good.
