Very 1960/70's property, but the main street for hotels, Banyan Drive, is filled with dumps, so this is the best option if you want a hotel instead of a B&B. Surprisingly, there aren't any basic Hampton Inn-type hotels in Hawaii's second-largest city. Very large room, clean, medium-sized balcony overlooking the picturesque bay and Coconut Island (other view is of Banyon Drive, which can be pretty, too). Great location for visiting Volcanoes Nat'l Park (just a 30 minute drive - and you'll only need 1 to 1.5 days at the park; take time to visit Mac Nut farm and Volcano Winery along the way). Buffet b-fast was ok and the weekend seafood buffets are popular with the local crowd, so the parking lot fills up. If you want to dine in the downtown Hilo area, you'll have to drive and park, which is not a problem with ample on-street spaces and public lots.
