They claim this “was probably the first hotel on the island.” Maybe it’s true. It’s pretty disheveled with old furnishings, and it’s on a busy intersection. They were renovating rooms on our recent visit (something they always seem to be doing). Rooms are small (most under 200 sq. ft.), have bathrooms and fridges but no phones or TVs. $65–$75. Cash only in advance. The folks who run it are always pleasant. The reason for the Solid Gold Value is there are not many places with a private room, a/c, and bath for this kind of money on the island, but don’t expect much more than that.

What Readers Have to Say

“We are going to visit the Big Island this May for the 7th time. Your latest book is way the best guide we’ve used. Most of the other guides don’t tell much we don’t already know, but we’ve learned a lot of new stuff from you. My wife and I are both over 70…But we’ve done maybe 2/3 of what you’ve mentioned already…congrats on a truly awesome job!…Your guide is by far the best. Truly impressive photos.”
