My wife and I stayed at this location on May 22, 2012 - and it was in the perfect location - just East of Volcano National Park and South of Hilo. From this location you can vist the nearby coves, the viewing area where the lava hits the ocean, and the airport is just a 20-30 minute drive away.
The best part of this location was probably their breakfast! They served Big Island Quiche on the morning we departed, and it was fantastic! We noticed their menu for the previous day was Portuguese Sausage with eggs and sweet bread! Talk about a great healthy breakfast that is served with all the trimmings: juice, Kona coffee, water, tea, etc.
Our host was very nice, and gave us a map of the nearby area. FYI - the restaurant they reccomend (Kailua's) is a genuine jewel (excellent service, great food, and fantastic environment). If you go, make sure to try their calamari steak!
