We always enjoy ourselves at the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel. Because of the coronavirus we were not able to dine at the Seafood Buffet. And with Hurricane Douglas on the way we had to leave for home earlier then we wanted to. All in all we had a nice time.

1000% Customer Satisfaction Friendly & indiscriminately welcoming experience for first time. Tiny beautiful island fronting the bay view attributes to the satisfaction and front desk service present extreme Aloha especially with the promotion to extend check was above and beyond everything for the stay. We had been to Sea Side and other hotels that provide fine service with satisfaction but we picked HH to be the finest among all. Thank you kindly and we are looking forward to come back again one. Aloha Joseph Renton 808 364 9985 Room 438 & 440

Easy to book, friendly staff. Clean room, gave a good rate with an ocean view room. The pool was open, sad not open for option of night swim but atleast it was open during this covid crisis for a swim during the day that's what my kids cared about. Would recommend to others.

I stayed here for 2 nights on a quick trip from honolulu. I was very happy with the outstanding customer service that I recived from the front desk staff. Betty and Miltion make an outstanding team in truly representing the meaning of both customer service and the aloha spirit. Thank you for a great stay and I will return due to this staff.

Our Ohana (family) just returned from our Hilo Hawaiian "stay-cation" experience. This was likely our 4th stay within the last year as we enjoy exploring the magic that is the Island of Hawaii and the pandemic has driven us to stay and support local businesses. Unfortunately, it may be our last. We booked our reservations at the Kamaaina rate which was to include a free upgraded room if available. At the desk we asked and the reflexive response was that of surprise, uncertainty, and negativity. When we asserted ourselves it was only then that we were upgraded as if a favor was granted to us. The room was clean, large and accommodating but needed renovations (similar to all of the Hilo Hotels) as it was upgraded to the Ocean View one bedroom suite as I had booked and purchased the Banyan Suite. Unfortunately the reason for disappointment outside of the check in experience included the following: 1. All restaurant/bar service closed. 2. Gym closed. 3. Pool closed. 4. The room adjacent to us (448?) had a large loud hotel party that did not settle down until 430 am. With a background of insuring consumer satisfaction (patients in the medical industry) I suggest the following: Please be transparent. If accommodations are being restricted or closed due to the current crises, say so clearly rather than waiving the resort fee as part of the special rate. This would include the closed food/beverage services and pool. We made no effort to notify the on duty manager of the disrespectful neighbors and we realize that this type of behavior "happens." That said, we hope that the comments although critical are productive so that future return Kamaaina guests are treated fairly and with open arms. Mark.
