Property conditions & facilities



6/10 Good

Good service and breakfast. Very basic room facilities but kept clean. The sound insulation effect is poor, if you need a quiet environment to fall asleep, it won't be a good choice. Also, if you walk across the bridge to get food after dark, the area near the bridge is unsafe.

Hilo Trip
The staff was awesome, but I have to say the condition left a little to be desired. No TV, 1 tiny round bar of soap, windowsills were dirty and the floors were a little scary, kind of week. The Continental Breakfast was nice. I wish I could be more positive but unfortunately the condition of the hotel was very old and creaky.

Nice place
Owner was extremely nice and accommodating. Condition of hotel could be better but it was fine for our use. Note: no A/C but it wasn’t a problem while we were there. Free breakfast was wonderful!! Outside traffic was very loud at certain points.

Modest Hotel in Hilo
Very friendly staff and a nice continental breakfast with fresh fruit and assorted muffins and bagels. My room was a little spartan with no air conditioning nor a TV. The hotel is only a few blocks from downtown Hilo.
