We loved it! We totally we're pleasantly surprised to find we had a full kitchen and a Lanai. The owner and others at the desk we're delightful and very helpful with their recommendations for restaurants, etc. Fresh papaya and bananas we're for the taking, strong wonderful coffee and delicious babana bread available in the morning...we were able to walk into town was great!

A very nice place, close to downtown Hilo. The owner was very helpful and the continental breakfast was great. Loved the local fresh fruit. Room was nice and the ceiling fans made it comfortable.
