The drive up on this is terrible, especially if you go around back where it borders the junkyard. We'd paid in advance and almost had decided to write off the money and find another place. But, it ended up charming us. 1950s style, open-air lobby. Room with balcony overlooked a coy pond and Hilo Bay. Shop-warn old girl but clean and relatively cheap. The attached restaurant (Coconut Grill) had great food at reasonable prices. And, the music entertainment was a highlight of the trip. Native Hawaiian playing guitar and singing beautifully. At one point another diner, another elderly Hawaiian man, began singing harmony with him. Treasured memory.
