Great little hotel/hostel. Staff really nice and friendly. Room was comfortable but had to go to lobby for WIFI. Nice clientele for the hotel. Great location, close to downtown and the beach. Has an nice ocean view. Decent priced

Old, inexpensive charming hotel.
This is an old hotel/hostel. Lots of charm. Inexpensive, but relatively spartan. Don't go there if you want a resort, but its good for meeting other interesting travelers. The mattress in our room was a little too old, and there was some early morning traffic noise.

Not worth it.
No where do they say you need id for everyone staying. My husband's wallet was stolen earlier that. We weren't allowed to stay without it. So disappointed.

Interesting and convenient
It's extremely convenient when you want to hang out in downtown Hilo. Rooms are spartan. You'd think the big fan would be helpful, but the way the rooms are located in a little valley there is nearly no breeze at times, so very little air circulation even with the fan. But otherwise a cute little place for a simple stay. Mahalo!

Older motel with great staff
The room was for my family (wife + 2 children) for a couple of nights. The room was small, but bright, and had the standard amenities you would find in newer or modern hotel: Refrigerator, microwave, mini fridge and cable tv with limited channels. Free parking and a light continental breakfast of pastries and fresh fruit was good, although if you were not there early enough, you missed out. Beds are old and sleep was at a premium because of the comfort and the highway noise. The hotel is older which explains the price-point but, with all of the above stated, it was worth it. Most important, however, was how friendly, welcoming and accommodating the staff was. Totally amazing folks, with great service, refilling your coffee at breakfast. There was always someone tidying as well as another person available for any help at the front desk. The kids had a great time at the "badminton court" and the free weights were awesome. When my family returns to Hilo, We will return to the Wild Ginger Inn. Thank you.
