My wife and I along with two other couples stayed here for two rainy days and nights in June. We ended our two week visit to Hawaii in Hilo to be close to the volcano. The lobby, views of the bay from the back of the hotel along with the neighboring gardens are nice. The parking lot view rooms we had were a little worn but clean. The staff was pleasant. We had requested king size beds but we're given doubles. We had to ask for an iron and ironing board. The ironing board was a little table top model, so good luck. The hallway on our floor smelled strongly of cigarette and cigar smoke. We did not eat in the hotel as Ken's House of Pancakes was just down the street thank goodness. Parking is free and you are very close to the airport.
All the hotels in the area look the same- very average and a little tired. Castle has purchased the hotel and maybe it will improve. For a short stay the hotel is ok as you don't have many options.
We love Hawaii but in regards to Hilo Hawaiian Hotel and the city of Hilo, been there- done that.
