Staying in Hilo in a very relaxed way Oct 21, 2012
The Hilo Hawaiian hotel has been around for some time. But it kept up with time. Rooms are of average size, have good beds, air conditioning, flat screen TV, and a balcony. I was on the backside of the hotel and instead of overlooking the ocean I could enjoy the huge Banyan trees outside of the hotel AND the sounds of birds and other animals that were giving a free and extremely relaxing "concert" every evening. An item I missed in the room was a refrigerator, the ocean view rooms, however, seem to have refrigerators.

The hotel offers free and plenty parking (even inside), a pool, a beach nearby, a very friendly staff, in-room WiFi and internet (for fee), in-lobby WiFi (for free), a (rather expensive) seafood buffet, tours desk, gift shop, and coin laundry.

Hilo Hawaiian is located on a very nice, quiet and green peninsula, next to a state park and a Japanese garden. For those who fear tsunamis; the hotel is tsunami proof! Hilo Airport is about 3.5 miles away, downtown Hilo about 2 miles. Several restaurants are in walking distance however.

The hotel is well maintained and rooms are clean. I would recommend this hotel and stay here again.

I can recommend this hotel to anyone who should like to have a pleasant time in Hilo and the surroundings. The area around the hotel is beautiful! Nice bays, the hotel's front has a nice ocean view as well as a good view on Coconut Island. The backside rooms face some huge Banyan Trees in which nocturnal animals provide you with a very relaxing nightly concert. The hotel is equipped with all the stuff tourists needs (restaurant, bar, buffet, travel desk, etc.)

You will need a car to visit downtown Hilo, but nearby restaurants are quite OK.

Rooms are clean and not too small. And, (at last!) finally a hotel that understands that providing a free parking lot is a service that guests appreciate.
