So if you read my reviews - I usualy am in 5 star SPG hotels and I am pretty hard to please. In any case I was looking for a place in Hilo on our annual trip to Hawaii and there are not many choices regardless of budget. I picked this hotel knowing the rating. This is a great hotel and if in Hilo I recommend you stay here.
So the coqui are loud but same anywhere on this side of the island, The hotel needs a dab of paint here and there.....the place has not been updated in awhile but maintained... very clean, sheets clean, towels clean, floor clean....really exactly what you would have found in Hilo in 1968...a small Hawaiian villlage hotel. Everyone very cool and the owner is really cool.
So I loved this place because remember all experiences are not packaged by hotel companies.... However, when booking remember no AC and no mod design....just hawaiian charm and Aloha....and a clean bed to sleep in for 50 bucks.....awesome..... and a close walk to town.... If you are staying longer the outside areas were cool - nice garden, outdoor kitchen, outdoor workout place with free weights that all have a view of hilo bay..... this place is one of a kind and I suspect you will not find another exactly like anywhere. Again, add this place to your list for the Hawaiian experience of life....
