We find this hotel quaint and comforting. It helps that it’s one of the better bargain hotels in Hilo. Rooms are clean and have complete kitchens. No phone in your room, but you can always use the one in the lobby. The coqui frog problem here is particularly noticeable and they will give you free earplugs, but some guests actually enjoy the sound. Free coffee, cakes and fruit in the morning. Friendly and helpful staff. An easy place to recommend. Rooms are $119–$159 (it’s worth the upgrade to Superior), one- and two-bedroom units are $179 and $199. The two-bedroom unit only has one bathroom. Additional person add $10. 2-night minimum in certain rooms.

What Readers Have to Say

“I just want to thank you for your wonderful O’ahu guidebook. My boyfriend and I got back to Washington, DC, on Saturday after an unforgettable week in Waikiki, and we are already planning our next trip to Hawai’i. Your hotel and restaurant recommendations were dead-on, and your detailed maps saved us in Kane’ohe!…We were impressed all week at the thoroughness and accessibility of your guidebook…You left literally no stone unturned. If we visit another island (which we fully intend to do), the first step in planning our trip will be to pick up your guide for that island. I have already recommended your guidebook to others and will continue to do so in the future. Again, I cannot thank you enough for enriching our vacation. We had a wonderful time and are completely charmed by Hawai’i. We will definitely be back…we spent most of Saturday being sad that we were not in Hawai’i!”
