“Do not stay here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2005

We stayed 3 nights at this Hilo Seaside Hotel. The hotel did not have hot water the first night. The room had mold around the A/C and the window. The bathtub was dirty and mold had formed around the drain.

The hotel does not have enough parking so we had to go hunt for parking every night on the streets.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

I have stayed twice, for extended periods at the hilo seaside in the past year. A full service resort this is not. A great value, charming hotel and choke full of character it is. From the helpful desk to the excellent maid service this is one of the finest budget hotels I have stayed at. All of the rooms I have stayed in have been clean and everything in the rooms worked well. The staff keeps the hotel quiet (if you want to party this is not the place for you) The gardens are a wonderful touch, the hotel is maintained with care and pride. The limited pool hours (9am to 6 pm) are a bit of a pain and dotties is no longer open on the premises. The complimentary breakfast is just coffee and a roll but this is still the best value on the big island, bar none.
