Yikes… I categorically disagree with anyone categorizing this place as “old” or “charming.” Some highlights: * Overgrown parking lot. * Stained bedding. * Door that showed signs of having been previously kicked in. * Rotting wood for roofs and stairs * TV cords still in place but TV had been removed * Surge protectors strung across room to power lights. * Pictures in listing were clearly taken before everything started to fall down. * Got an e-mail immediately after booking “reminding” me that the property was old and maybe not in great shape, when the booking didn’t suggest that at all. I get that this is a budget hotel, and I definitely didn’t expect a 5 (or even 3) star experience. But I did expect to feel safe, and I didn’t. Enough said.

It is an old house-style hotel, but the room is clean and the mattress is comfortable for sleeping. Our family all had a good sleep. They provide free breakfast: fresh fruits, muffins, bagels, and bread. Parking is also free. The price is good compared with those in this area. Overall, it is a good choice for budget.

The location was great but the building is in need of repair and updates. If you are a building inspector, don't stay there:) However, The room we had was clean and had new floors and a fridge. The grounds around the hotel are really nice. The hot water took 10 minutes to come in but once it did, it was sufficient.

It’s really a funky place, and should not be viewed as hotel. I booked three nights and was only able to stay one night, and changed to another place for the rest of two nights. The window cannot be closed, so the noise from traffics is loud and I feel like sleeping on the street. Also there are lots of bugs inside the room and very nature place. But it did serve a really nice breakfast, and the host Lee is very friendly and helpful.

Awesome spot, very cool vibe! Upon arrival we walked into the lobby and were blown away by the awesome tiki carvings! We were greeted by the lady at the front desk, who was so awesome and very helpful with suggesting activities in the area. The room is very cute, not fancy in any way, but it has everything you could need! We will definitely be staying here again next time we pass through Hilo!
