I am writing this review from my bed at this property. I stayed here in November of 2012, and never got around to writing this. Obviously, the place is decent, cause I returned...unless I have really low standards?
Seriously, this is a nicely run, older hotel. The furnishings are tasteful and in good repair, and the place is generally clean. The AC works well in the room, the parking is free. I have never eaten at the restaurant, though.
What really impressed me the last time I stayed here was the staff. I was flying out on the red-eye on the other side of the island. I asked the staff if I could have a late check out, so I wouldn't have to spend most of my day sans lodging. They offered 4PM, no charge. I plan to return here whenever I get back to Hilo.
