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 Very outdated!!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.
The staff was very friendly and helpful
This Hotel is very outdated and in much need of repair and new upgraded furniture in the rooms
fresh mango at the breakfast
The worst hotel I had in Hawaii.
Cold AC clean beds lots of towels
Wifi signal weak
the free Wifi, coffe maker and fridge in the room. Room was also a good size
This hotel is in major need of an overhaul. Outside has crumbling cement work and paint peeling. Rooms in need of re vamp
Perfect location for the sightseeing we had planned. The property is right on the water and we enjoyed walking to and in the Japanese Gardens and out to a small island. The staff is friendly, courteous and very accomodating. The rooms are large and clean. Keeping in mind that this is an old, old property and situated in a rain forest, helps one understand the condition of the structure, both inside and outside. I always say when staying at any motel, "I only need a clean comfortable bed and a shower". We will stay here again!
My only disappointment was the continental breakfast. I require protein in the morning to start my day so it was disappointing not to have scrambled eggs :( We alternated between Ken's Pancake House and Taco Bell for my egg and cheese fix.
friendly staff, nice continental breakfast, great location.
coqui frog songs could be heard all night long. Closed the jalousie windows, turned on the room air conditioner for white noise and it was bearable. Rooms also offers complimentary ear plugs to visitors.
Got moved to a different room without argument by staff. Second room was much better albeit still had evidence of mold in places (cracked tiles in bathroom floor etc). Location is great.
The first room was badly moldy. I don't mean just a visual appearance of mold, I mean that the smell was really bad and our group had respiratory problems and headaches from the mold. Room needs gutting and professional mold abatement. I recommend inspecting the rooms before deciding whether to stay here if you can.
I love the fact that there was a general store and restaurant attached to it. The restaurant had the best shish kabab that I've had in a long time. The general store was not that much more expensive than a market - I consider it to compare to 7-ll in price but the selection of items was fantastic. Anything you could need or want. The ice cream was sooo good. The staff was very courteous but most of all very friendly.
Like most hotels the shower pressure could be better.
