Word to the wise.
I booked this room last minute but I did base it on previous reviews. I am not sure how this place was rated EXCELLENT. I paid $95 for a room with no TV. Peeling paint flat saggy mattress and paper thin pillows. The windows won’t close which is very scary for a traveling woman. The staff was amazing and unfortunately that’s all this hotel has going for it. The building has potential and yes there are kitschy decorations in the lobby but that does not constitute an EXCELLENT rating in any way. This place needs a massive amount of work.

If you like the sound of frogs...
My mid-20s self would have stayed here for as long as possible, my mid-50s self was happy with one night. Price and location was amazing. The building is really cool, the plumbing and bed was all new, but the room was a bit run down, though in a way one could expect for a 100 year old affordable hotel. The frogs were a hoot, but not everyone would find their incredible volume pleasant, though they did stop at around midnight.

Wonderful Stay
Lee, who checked us in was fantastic! Loved her enthusiasm. Hotel was quaint, but does need a bit more TLC. Overall our stay was perfect.

Good service and breakfast. Very basic room facilities but kept clean. The sound insulation effect is poor, if you need a quiet environment to fall asleep, it won't be a good choice. Also, if you walk across the bridge to get food after dark, the area near the bridge is unsafe.

Awesome spot, very cool vibe! Upon arrival we walked into the lobby and were blown away by the awesome tiki carvings! We were greeted by the lady at the front desk, who was so awesome and very helpful with suggesting activities in the area. The room is very cute, not fancy in any way, but it has everything you could need! We will definitely be staying here again next time we pass through Hilo!
