    A great start on Hilo

    A nice place, conveniently located with the basic necessities (although a little old). Sweet to have daily Hawaiian papaya and the best banana bread we’ve ever had. Reception has good advice on the happening spots in Hilo. A resident kitty cat is also a darling, friendly fixture. Thank you for a safe, happy stay as this was what’s important.

    Little slice of paradise

    A lovely stay in what felt like the middle of a rainforest. If AC is important to you maybe this place might be rough for you. We had some of the windows open and had the fans on all night and we were cimfortable at the end of a july stay. The crazy frogs are very VERY loud and we thought how can we sleep in this racket? But somehow the sounds of the frogs were almost hypnotic and we all had a wonderful night of sleep. There is a fully stocked kitchen. If you want to cook all your meals here there is a farmers market nearby as well as a supermarket. Also the host provided papayas and the best banana bread in Hilo. Although its located in a nice spot in Hilo, you feel like youre in the middle of the jungle. It was a very nice stay and will definitley come back in the future.

  • 8.0.Very good

    A bit dated and can use some upgrades in the kitchenette and bath. Hotel is surrounded with trees and plants so you can hear nature come alive during the night and early morning, which wasn't a problem for me. Room seemed a bit pricey after I checked in but I did a late booking and have no reference to compare with other hotels/motels in the area. I stayed just one night, checked in at 10p and left by 8a so I just needed a place to shower and sleep. Hosts were very friendly and helpful!
