    Convenience for personal business and non-resort hotel accommodations.

    Fabulous

    the hotel is a good value - it is an old building but well kept. The front rooms have a nice ocean view with balcony. Being in Banyan Drive it is a nice walking area.

    No elevator - must carry luggage up stairs

    Superb

    I loved the shabby chic. The location was so perfect. Our view of the koi pond was fabulous.

    It was hard to manage the stairs.

    No elevator to 2nd floor = tough to get suitcase upstairs.

    Fabulous

    The check in time was like 12 noon. I arrived 7 in the morning and could not find a place to rest up before check in time. The hotel must advance the the customer that they can't check us in before actual check in time.

    When I got to the restaurant nobody attended to me while I was given a seat for almost 20 minutes.

    Good

    The complimentary breakfast was very good and the staff were very pleasant.

    The bathrooms needed upgrading. We were cold at night but had only a thin blanket with no extras.

    Exceptional

    this 50 + year old establishment was well kept, clean, beautiful and convienient. The family run business was evident in the special attention to detail. The desk gave so much good information that they were better than the Visitor center!

    Beds too soft

    Exceptional

    The location was nice. It is just a short trip from/to the airport. The staff was really friendly and eager to help you in all questions that arised during the stay.

    If you are noise sensitive the proximity to the airport could be a bit of a problem but there are not too much planes on Hilo Airport (maybe one per hour) so that at least it will not be a constant noise.

    There was a slamming party on Election Night!

    I saw the ants, I just killed them.

    Fabulous

    great location if you want to catch early flight, breakfast ok, rooms are clean.

    if you have room looking to the road, can be very noisy at night.

    Very good

    The localization is perfect.

    The noise. We got room number 1, it is by the pool. At 6 in the morning the noise of the cleaning ladies pushing their carts would start. The room is just where they park their carts. And since it is by the pool, there were a lot of people running around and yelling and screaming. Terrible.

    Superb

    Friendly staff, truly Hawaiian atmosphere and design, free parking, rate included breakfast in a hotel adjacent restaurant and it was absolutely delicious (flapjacks with coconut spread and other choices).

    In general very good experience. The mattresses were very soft, almost too soft, but it was not a big issue.
