“Aloha from Wild Ginger Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2003

I am Diane Buckley, the new innkeeper at Wild Ginger as of January 2003. I promise the aloha spirit is back at WGI along with a fresh coat of paint and new flooring. The beauty of the property can't be denied - she just needed someone to care. Please check with someone who has stayed recently before passing up on a unique Hilo beach house and barbecue.

i have stayed at the Wild Ginger many times over the years and it has done nothing but go down hill. I was there just last week and orderded the best room in the house, with an" ocean view" It had a peak of the bay.....we are talking peak as the bamboo outside was so over grown you could only see if the wind was blowing the bamboo out of the way. The termite rot is taking a toll on the rooms, which are not well cleaned. There was no toilet paper or soap in the room, and the table was dirty. There were hairs on the bathroom floor, and the windows rattled in the storm. It was bad. When I asked for toilet paper....they asked if I was in a hurry.......not aloha spirit. Thank goodness we brought our own tissues.
They never did come by with the supplies.

I had a similar experience a few years ago. I complained and they blamed it on one housekeeper........so I gave them another chance. It was a BAD experience. I am a home owner in Hawaii, and have been there many times. I DO NOT recommend this hotel......I arrived at 3 and my room , that I reserved a month in advance was not ready.
