The hotel hits you with a $29.49 daily resort fee. When asked why they said it was for internet, coffee pot in the room, pool and fitness center. You can stay at a Hilton Garden Inn with those amenities AND free breakfast for the room rate. For God’s sake, you’re in Hawaii! You’re out sightseeing all day, beaches and water easily available. You’re not going to be using a pool or fitness center. It’s a rip-off! Stay elsewhere.

The people at the front desk were lovely. The view is great. Those are the only two positives I can say. We got to our room to find a large bag of trash outside our door - not a little bag from a room - full size. It was there all day. The bedsheets were threadbare, with small holes in them. The towels were equally sad. The place wasn't clean. There was an odd grate below the windows, open to the outside, which is how we think the mosquitoes got inside, because they were inside. If it had been reasonably priced, it all could have been excused, but for 360/night? No. I've tried contacting the GM, Matt Pickett, twice now in the weeks since the trip to discuss the shortcomings, but never heard back. Spend your money elsewhere. These rooms are dumps.

Great stay! Great location. Clean, superb balcony setting of Hilo Bay on 4th floor =. All good… No “Gotcha’s” …. Just good old fashioned service and “Happy to have you” Will come again for longer Hilo time……

Me and my boyfriend spent most of the days out and about but the room had a nice bathroom and the bed was comfortable. Mini fridge worked great for our left overs. And a nice balcony for mornings I wake up before my boyfriend to enjoy the birds songs. We didn’t use any other amenities on this trip. Parking was convenient because we park on the bottom to prevent us from getting rained on while we go up the the room.

When my plans to stay at a friend's place didn't fall through, I asked my taxi driver to take me to the nearest hotel and brought me here. Though it was last minute, they were able to accommodate me with a room to stay in for the week. There service is outstanding as well as the view that they provided me with my room. This place is clean and very friendly and there restaurant in the lobby, I gotta say that they have the makings to be one of the best restaurants here in hawaii
