My wife and I found The Paradise Inn to be a bargain. Nice, comfy king size bed with eclectic furnishings, it was a cozy place to spend a few days. Ample kitchen enabled us to enjoy some good home cooking. Although no wifi was included, we discovered that if you went across the street to the Sirius Cafe and made... More

Like other travelers we needed a quick room for a night possibly more if we wanted to see a bit more of the volcano area. For two couples the price barely justifies the state of this place. It's only assets are proximity to a couple decent restaurants and it's less expensive than a more accommodating b/b or guest house or... More

This place is very well located and this is its only asset. otherwise, the room is dirty, never cleaned after each guest. the toilets have never been repaired contrary to what the owner said during 5 days. if u can avoid that place, do so ! Very expensive for its value !

We booked over the phone, last minute because we'd never planned to stay overnight in Volcano; in a few words, there must be better places there!!! But if this is all you can afford or is available then stay because the lava hike is WELL WORTH staying overnight for.

We needed a clean enough place to stay in the Hilo/Pahoa area for a short stay. We found Island Paradise Inn to meet the criteria quite well. While not spotless, most places are not, it offered us a very large room with plenty of space as well as a kitchen so that we could cook and pack up meals. As... More

Island Paradise Inn is NOT a place to go if you are looking for conventional, high rise, ocean-front destination resorts. It is THE place to go if you want a place which is moderately priced, off the tourism circuit, in a lively and eccentric town and owned and managed by a woman who takes pride and interest in her properties....

As the title says it all...in case you have no idea where to spend the night, with 2 kids exhausted, after a 5 hours lava walk, 10 pm....and no reservation in hand..... When you find a roof with two bedrooms and a shower, than you would take it, whatever the conditions ! Other than that : avoid. Dirty (and we... More

The Island Paradise Inn provided a central location for me when I needed a place to stay. My initial plans did not work out, and Ophelia was so kind and respectful to me. I stayed in the Bamboo Suite, which contained a double bed, FREE wifi, cable TV, small refrigerator, microwave, basic kitchen/dining items, bathroom with a hot shower, towels,... More

Family-owned inn. Very quaint, where the real Hawaiians live. Each suite is decorated differently, 3 large plantation homes divided so every suite is private and has there own kitchen/kitchenette and bathrooms. All suites have 1-2cable TVs completely furnished with everything you'll need. In Pahoa we are located in the heart of town 10 min from natural hot ponds/swimming. In Hilo 2 min. to municipal golf course / 5min. to mall and airport, 25 min. to volcano. Our Hilo and Pahoa suites are 20 min. apart very central locations.
