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.

I had an enjoyable time at this budget hotel. While the hotel is very simple and clean with all basic amenities, i.e., plenty of clean towels, room and bathroom very clean, microwave oven, small refrigerator, and large sink, the views from the windows are breathtaking (oceanfront rooms). While comfortable with windows open and ceiling fan, would be nice if they would offer portable air conditioners (even at a reasonable nightly charge). Also, could use some fresh paint and updated furnishings, but not a major issue.

Know before you book that this 3 story hotel has no elevator or air conditioning. If you can get past that and are looking for an affordable hotel in Hilo with full size refrigerator and kitchen right on the water this is worth consideration. The property is dated but clean. 2 fans in the room made it comfortable in March for us. Decent shower. Had some luke warm water a couple of mornings but overall it was ok. The bed was comfortable. Average size TV. Our room had a nice balcony and was toward the end nearest the water which makes for awesome views but at night the water can be a bit loud as you sleep. Not sure if it is any quieter at the other end closer to the parking lot but it wasn't terrible. The property was exactly what we expected prior to arriving and we enjoyed out stay.

This hotel is right next door to a run-down, poorly run apartment complex. We endured a tenant yelling profanities one night all night, several barking dogs at any time of the day, and teenagers laughing and yelling in the parking garage at 5:15 a.m. This hotel is in desperate need of paint, a secure key system (still use metal room keys), new carpeting, and actual room numbers on the room doors (they had press-on sticky ones in the door jams). The pool has a "Closed" sign on the gate at all times. When we asked why it wasn't open, the front desk clerk said it was, but they leave the sign on so (get this) guests will ask if the pool is open and the front desk can keep a count. Seems like there could be a better system. We were looking for an inexpensive hotel, which This is, but it wasn't worth feeling unsafe and annoyed most of the time.

We would rate this hotel at minus 2 stars:

The pictures shown on the website misrepresent the real old dumpy building and rooms of the hotel.

It has no air conditioned, there are only fans in he room; during the time we were there, it is very hot and high humidity;
no elevator, very weak WiFi, no restaurant, no vending machines, you may find some restaurants nearby, 10 minutes away

It was a big mistake for us to stay there for two nights, for $150 per night.

Don’t stay at this hotel

If you are in search of a cheap hotel I recommend you splurge a little more rather than stay here. Recently my family and I came to the Big Island to spend a mini vacation together. When we got to the room the first thing we noticed was the floor was not cleaned well. For context their rooms are tile. The second my grandson stepped into the room he complained about how sticky the floor was and when we passed by the cleaning staff cleaning another room we all noticed they were using vacuums to clean a TILE floor. The second thing that was unsatisfactory was on the third day we were there we had left the hotel for almost 6-7 hours. When we returned we all noticed that the floor was still in the same condition as we left it. I wanted answers immediately so I asked the cleaning staff how come our floors were still dirty? They answered, "Because of COVID we clean every room every third day." Not to sound unreasonable, but due to the COVID outspread shouldn't they clean everyday for health purposes? Also if you cannot handle the heat or do not feel safe leaving sliding doors open do not come here. There is no A/C and they only give you one stand up fan and one ceiling fan whose speed cannot be adjusted. Overall I do not recommend this hotel to anyone.

I am in Hilo every Quarter for work, normally at the Doubletree nearby. Due to tourist demand I booked Reeds Bay Hotel and had low expectations. No AC, older rooms, and I saw poor reviews.

The hotel is small but very clean. If my room is clean- that’s all I really care about. It was, and the towels were very new. The room had a balcony overlooking Hilo Bay and the pool. The room was a studio with small kitchen which I didn’t use, but full refrigerator and coffee pot were useful. The pool is very small, but clean, with a dip after a long hot day in the field. They have laundry facilities and a security guard at night.

This is not a luxury hotel, but of you want an small independent hotel in a great location. I would choose this one again. They had very good rates when I needed to book. Wifi was good, and I had no issues for my 3 night stay.

Remember, this is a two star hotel right on the bay and all the hotels around it are probably two or three times the cost. Friendly staff, clean rooms, very comfy king size bed, great location, good parking, big rooms with full size 'fridge, microwave and sink, easy to find and close to the airport. We're excited about coming back!

Our trip to Hawaii Island, and 1st post COVID. Hawaii is still entrenched with COVID rules including HIlo Reeds - they checked our vaccine card. Price was comparatively good, but overall inflated.

+s : good sized room, nice included kitchenette and full sized fridge - this was very good. Close Free Parking. Beds were comfortable Ceiling fan satisfactory, wifi satisfactory

- s: Old, drab walls,, no bathtub, no AC, flooring ugly, no decor, noisy during the day, poor exterior.

This was only the only places could find at about $150/night. Real value should be $100, but it was satisfactory considering other hotels were at least $60 more at the time.

We had two beautiful rooms right on the Bay. The views were wonderful. The service was kind and great. Never had such a clean room not even in chain hotels. The price was outstanding. Best in Hawaii.

The only negatives for older travelers were the stairs. There is no elevator. And there is no air conditioner.

However, the minute we opened the windows and door the trade winds cooled the room and we learned that without air conditioning we were acclimated for sightseeing and walking. Nights were just fine with a fan.

The hotel is next to the best swimming beach in HILO. The best food is right there also. I recommend the Verna's drive in for local food and the Fish Market for fish. There are beautiful waterfront and parks within very short walking distance. The main downtown and farmers market is only a safe walk of a mile from the hotel.
Please take advantage of the location. It doesn't get better than this in Hilo.

If you want a high-end vacation don't stay here. There is no AC, no elevator, and it feels kind of like a dorm room with cinder block walls.

But if you're just looking for a clean and comfortable place to stay, it's perfectly fine. It also has some advantages you wouldn't necessarily expect from a hotel of its class: there are kitchenettes in the rooms, and it is truly right on the waterfront. The adjacent park is on an extremely protected bay with absolutely no waves and would be appropriate for younger children.

I had a great breakfast at the Coconut Grill, which is a short walk away.
