Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had such a great time at this place. The whole place was beautiful and made you feel very at ease. The staff was great from the front desk to the hotel maids. We went when Merrie Monarch Festival was going on. We didn't know about this festival. The hotel had a lot of vendors and music the whole week. It was a great surprise. Thank you SCP Hilo Hotel for making our stay full of memories !!!

Stayed at SCP Hilo for the weekend and only wish we could have stayed longer. Beautiful boutique hotel with classic hilo vibes. Friendly staff, great amenities, perfect location. They offer use of bikes, paddle boards, yoga mats. Beautiful location along banyan drive. Swim in the ice ponds, dip in the ocean, bike down to bay front. Local restaurants within walking distance. Can’t wait to stay again next time we visit Hilo.

We picked this hotel because of good reviews and the fact that it was near a couple of restaurants so we wouldn't have to get the car out in the evening. The welcome and check in were friendly enough and the hotel is clean, light and airy. We were directed to our 'pool view' room and, while the room was big enough, it was pretty spartan and the only way you get a pool view is by leaving your door and window open so that everyone else walking down the corridor outside your room gets a good look in up close and personal! The other thing worth mentioning applies to all the hotels in this area; you will be directly under the flightpath of the planes taking off and landing at the airport on the other side of the highway! They do stop at night sometime after 9pm but there is a 6.15 am flight on the dot every morning so don't count on a lie in. The two restaurants within walking distance were no good for evening meals either in our opinion.

This hotel has really paid attention to the details throughout the common areas. The rooms are basic yet appropriately furnished, but who stays in a room all day in Hawaii🤙 Kind front desk and accommodating with most requests! Even though they have free tea and coffee here, be sure to walk across the street for yummy coffee at Big Island Coffee Roasters! Very relaxing converted motel/hotel.

Recently renovated hotel it has a nice relaxing vibe to it. Open air hotel, although older, definitely couldn’t tell it’s the old hilo seaside for sure. Check in was a breeze, staff was super friendly, the rooms were nicely done with basic amenities included. Our view overlooked the koi pond so it was relaxing to sit outside and look at the view. Overall great relaxing experience! Thank you Bree and the staff at SCP Hilo for a relaxing stay! We’ll be back again soon!
