71 Banyan Dr, Hilo

This is one of best hotels on Banyan Drive at the moment (though that in itself is not worth tons of bragging rights). Built in 1973, their location overlooking Coconut Island affords them nice views. The rooms and bathrooms are fresh and modern, still in keeping with the feel of Hawai‘i. However, the a/c has some quirks, the most annoying being it’s motion sensitive and will shut off at night unless you get up and walk around. Good for sleep walkers and those of us who have small bladders, but the rest of us will sweat it out. Overall, the building is well-maintained for its age with updated restaurants (wish they had remodeled the lobby and pool area). The top (8th) floor is the smoking floor (but only on the lanais). There are some small shops on property (not run by the hotel), such as a beauty salon, massage spa and a convenience store. Rooms (347–376 sq. ft.) are $157–$249. Suites (542–748 sq. ft.) are $217–$410. Check for discounts.
