lt was a good trip

We were disappointed with the first room with two double beds facing the other wing of the hotel and was given a room with a king size bed with a side view of the bay after we complained about the first room. Staff was helpful in making copies of street maps and helping us locate streets. Enjoyed the plants and flowers growing around the hotel.

Serious traveler saves

We enjoyed our night's stay at the hotel. We were interest in a clean place to sleep primarily. The location fit in perfectly with our desires. We liked the ambience of an old time hotel immensely.

Welcome to Old Hawaii

We arrived at the hotel past midnight so there was no parking at the hotel. We had to park on the street about a half block away. Get there early if possible. It seems to be a common problem with all the hotels in this area. The room was clean and comfortable with a small balcony. The beds were comfortable and we got a good night's rest. Breakfast was filling and complementary to hotel guests. There was lots of fresh papaya and Kona Coffee! There were baskets of flowers with signs that said Take one and We did. Be sure to take a walk around the grounds. There are lots of ponds and flowering plants to look at. At the back of the hotel is Hilo Bay where you can stand and lets the waves lap on your feet. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I will stay again when I make it back to Hilo. The hotel is a bit of what I think Old Hawaii must have been like with lots of wicker, tropical prints, and personality. It definitely is not your standard chain hotel! Thank goodness!

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

The airport is only about 2 miles from the airport, but you would never know it because you don't hear the planes. This is also convient for acessessing the tour planes and helicopters that give flights over the island. We took a flight and I'm glad we did. It is the best way to see lava flowing and steaming craters on the island.

i arraived late about 9pm ...

i arraived late about 9pm and the staff was friendly but the elevator was small and old and when I opened the room(key)there was nothing on the walls just a bed and a cheap 19inch tv.. The a/c was a tiny noisy wall unit and I had no view .The place felt unsafe and cheap. the breakfast was a joke and I could'nt wait to get to Kailua-Kona to our condo.
