“Uh-Hilo Students Find Someplace Else To Live”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2003

I was a former UH-HILO student living at Waiakea Villas. My experience was like other reviewers. The apt buildings are connected by a rat & mosquito infested pond. Seen many times at night rats swimming in the pond from myt balcony. Ducks & goose on property dont help either leaving droppings all over. On weekends I have gotten up finding beer bottles under my car from people hanging out in parking lot before going to night club. Argued with managment about this with no solution . They say security does all they can . I dont understand why they dont just kick out loitering at night.I wont grumble about roaches knowing they live everywhere in Hawaii,but the grounds there are not kept up daily .Lawns & shrubs are overgrown leaving lot of homes for bugs to grow.Trash are left in sight for days before anyone picks it up.You are better off staying any place but WAIAKEA VILLAS!

The rooms are small & dirty. Parking lots & property is filled with trash from customers who visits night club on premises.Have known tenants & guests there who have got cars stolen into even with security on duty.Overall, the place lacks management & upkeep of property.

I would definitely NOT recommend Waiakea Villas! The rooms double as homes to families of very bold cockroaches and the front desk service is terrible. The "hotel" is a combination business park/apartment building/hotel, and all three are mixed in together. Our room was right across the hall from a young man's apartment and he had late night parties that were very loud. That didn't make for a very restful night's sleep. Close to downtown Hilo, shopping, restaurants, etc. but that's about its only saving grace. I would not stay there again on a bet.
