Castle Hilo Hawaiian Hotel, Hilo
Very Good8.0
Really nice and great value ! Excellent staff !
Great value and very close to downtown Hilo , walking or driving. This hotel is older but sure has character which we like. The king bed we had was comfortable and the room spacey. Good wifi in the room as well. The front desk staff is crazy efficient and friendly. The best we had on entire trip! They all deserve a salary increase at this hotel.

A 3 star hotel lacking true client service
Hotel is on the waterfront facing the north/east Pacific ocean. It is also located beside a pretty Japanese Garden and a golf course. You can walk to downtown in 30 mins along the water but you will meet several homeless people along the way. The hotel common areas are better than the actual guest rooms. Our room looked and felt dated and in need of a major revitalization. The bed sheets felt sweaty and unwashed which made for an uncomfortable sleeping experience. The rooms lack soundproofing from the hallways and that made for very disruptive attempts to sleep. No maid service arrived after our first night. When I went to the front desk to notify them of this, they said I should have called it in from the room. I informed them that the phone in our room was disconnected. All we got was a "sorry" with no real effort to make things right. All in all a decent geographic location but not the best hotel if you expect real customer service. When we go back to Hawaii we will stay in a different hotel, perhaps the DoubleTree next door. This was, at best, a 3 star hotel.

Great value, clean rooms
Clean and spacious room. Beautiful grounds on the water. Breakfast at the restaurant was amazing! Would visit again.

Ok for a nights stay
Hotel appeared to have been 'lightly' updated. Lobby is clean and airy. Rooms have a feel that they have been renovated, but closer look, the age still shows. The a/c unit is motion sensor activated and turns off when things are still for too long, even when room is occupied. Which is too bad because the sound of the a/c fan was helping drown out the piercing sounds of the frogs just outside the room in the garden - but it would shut off only an hour or so after settling into bed. The grounds are very nice. The rooms are ok, although, The bedsheets in our room didn't look the cleanest and appeared quite worn.
