                                Pool closes at 7pm. Why? Mon-Thurs dining restaurant closes at 8pm. Why?

                                It is convenient to my work site and the wonderful town of Hilo. Thanks!

                                The bed was a little hard and the window curtain wouldn't open...seemed stuck and I didn't want to climb up to see what was happening.

                                The reception was excellent. The staff was very helpful. The rooms were spacious with a beautiful view of the bay.

                                The location and peaceful nature of the area.

                                I'm a smoker, so I didn't like their smoking policy and will not return.

                                Our third stay, It is time for an upgrade to your rooms.

                                I always feel safe in the hotel. Staff are courteous and helpful. Viwe from my room is excellent. Nice atmosphere. Spacious parking.

                                Make more available amenities as hair dryer, iron/ironing board, in-house IT personnel. I am a business traveler and lose so much time just to get what I need ready.Remove the dingy, moldy carpeting.

                                Good location, free parking. Nice view. Air-con was working well, and was the most quiet I have ever seen.

                                Expensive breakfast USD 16.95, you have to go to McDonalds. The hotel has seen the best days, needs some facelift.

                                The hotel is very convenient to visit the volcano, Akaka Falls, the Vanilla Farm, the Volcano winery. Downtown Hilo is a wonderful place to explore and lots of choices of good food. The Japaense garden and the island behind the hotel are beautiful and nice to spend time wondering in.

                                The bedding is tired looking.

                                The view of Hilo Bay, cleanliness, comfortable beds.

                                Location was OK.

                                The Staff: one extremely rude person during check in. Everytime I said "Please explain, I don't understand" the strongly accented lady would talk louder (to the extent of screaming) repeating the exact same word. My listening is just fine, but being a foreigner I have trouble understanding strong accents. I was making an effort to understand. Perhaps she should not be in a check in counter dealing with tourists. The cleanliness: stained carpet and sheets, hair on bed and bathtub! The same pill/candy (?) on the floor for the two days (I assume no vacuuming the rooms between customers).

                                no room service. Food in hotel expensive and not very good.

                                Location was beautiful, parks nearby and the banyon trees were spectacular.

                                The $5 discount on buffet was for the entire bill, not a $5 discount per person, which was not explained until we got the bill, which was about $70 for breakfast for 4 people. We did not eat there again, despite the food being excellent, it was too expensive.

                                comfortable and a good location for my business trip. I would like you to provide internet service with the room, rather than a charge for it.

                                no internet in room included in rate
