We stayed in the Palm room during June, 2006.
It was an interesting place to stay. The location and view were superb. It is convenient to go to downtown Hilo for sushi dinner and also has a great view of sunset. We can hear both the surf and the sound of the tropical forest at night. The room was not air-conditioned but the ceilling fan kept it cool. Very clean bathroom. The innkeeper was very enthusiastic and friendly.
I do have one suggestion though. Having grown up in a sub-tropical climate, I would suggest the innkeeper to have some mosquito coils on hand that the guests can light up on the balcony at night. It is a very economical way to keep the mosquitoes away.
