Exceptional service

We loved this place, decor is a bit dated, and the walls are paper thin, but overall I'd recommend. Bed comfy, really clean, pool available, breakfast choices excellent, service exceptional at all points. Really handy to the airport, good choice of restsurants around and handy to the motorway for the volcano park.

Good.

Great hotel would stay again. One problem our room, 3 was close to a main road and was quite noisy for my husband but I slept okay. It's an old hotel but well maintained and run. Nice pool and good wifi.

good clean budget option

Second time I stayed here. Nice clean rooms. Good pool, free internet and friendly helpful staff. Several room options. The deluxe ocean view have a lovely balcony overlooking the fishponds which is much nicer than the other options but these cost more of course.

friendly staff and good room & facilities

We booked a bargain ''run of house'' special and they gave us a top ocean view room! Big super clean room with balcony overlooking the interesting fishponds out to ocean bay. Nice pool and very friendly staff were additional bonuses

Comfortable place to stay

Hilo was our first stop for our Hawaii adventure. Arrived at the hotel prior to check in time after 11 hours and 2 flights and the staff were very accommodating and let us check in early. The hotel is old and needs some TLC but the room was neat and clean and offer a very comfortable stay. The staff are very friendly and happy to help and offer advise on the area. We hired a car and there is plenty of off street parking. Although the rooms do not offer the option of the safe there is a safe deposit box at the reception. Having arrived after a long flight we decided to eat at the hotel and the restaurant adjoining the hotel offers good food and the staff are very helpful and friendly. My partner and I Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and we were very happy and would recommend this hotel.

Doors Off Helicopter tours. Great experience for my first helicopter flight and no doors offers better option for photos and could feel the heat coming from lava when flying over volcanoes. PONDS Restaurant, opposite hotel with nice food and relaxing location on the water.

Island Holiday

Ok place. Was pretty much around what i was expecting after reading reviews on dated hilo hotels. room was clean. nice view of the fish pond and bay from the balcony. air con wasn't too loud but there seemed to be one or two very loud flights landing at the local airport that has it's flight path thru here. was a bit of a haul with bags to the room. parking was tight but eventually found a park. hotel was hard to locate upon arriving in town at night but it's not a easy place to navigate hilo. overall only really slept at the hotel and were out all day long so suited us fine.
