Older style hotel is in a great location with ample parking available. Rooms are spacious & bathroom recently renovated. Staff were friendly & music bar in lobby offered well priced & delicious meals. Really need to spend some time in Hilo to understand & find value in the culture here. The longer you stay, the more you enjoy this location, as there is so much to do.

A short stay

Pros: A lovely location and we had a great snack meal in the bar the first afternoon and had the buffet on the Saturday evening.
Cons: Replace the rollaway beds and perhaps have sofa beds in the suites.
We were travelling as a family - 2 adults and 1 child, which my booking referred to. We had a Junior Suite and on arrival found we only had a king sized bed, a rollway was brought to us quite quickly however it was unusable. The mattress seemed to be fabric covered springs with no padding whatsoever, our daughter could not get to sleep on it and we had to make up a bed for her on the sofa (which was not a sofa bed). We requested a replacement the next day but were told that they were all exactly the same.
