Your choices are limited and not too good in Hilo. This place was okay for the price--not many other places you can stay on the island for twice the price. But there's a reason. The hotel is right out of the 60's and needs updating. Rooms are small but ours was clean. A/C is a noisy window unit that doesn't seal properly.
Parking is a MAJOR problem here--there is essentially no parking lot and very limited on street. Really didn't like parking two blocks away on a dark street.
And get an interior room away from the street noise--there's no ocean view anyway.
Food was likewise okay but not great.
Other than parking, everything about this place is okay but just not very nice much less elegant.
