Within the past two years, Castle has given the 1970s hotel property a total makeover. Rooms and public areas have been totally redone. The restaurant has top notch chefs. The outstanding view of Hilo Bay and Mokuola (Coconut Island) remains fantastic. Within easy walking distance of a large Japanese-style garden with history dating back nearly 100 years, the hotel provides easy access to gentle exercise and more strenuous pursuits. Historic downtown Hilo is within a mile stroll past Hawaiian ca... Read more

We spent 4 nights here in April 16 and found the location good. The rooms had plenty of room and were clean and quiet. We had a harbour view which was far superior to what our children had on the other side of the hotel. We had a nice meal at the restuarant one night, but we did not find breakfast very appealing. We received plenty of good travel advice from the booking assistant in the foyer, and while there enjoyed the free wifi. Wifi in our room would have been preferred. The staff were gen... Read more

Ocean view room 704 very spacious and clean, recently renovated. Fabulous breakfast, plan on splitting the a la carte order! Room 702 had windows on two sides (corner room). Not a 5 star but we'd stay there anytime. Close to the action, next to beautiful Japanese park, good spot for birding the shore from your balcony.

Ohhhhh, not a nice place on my list. We arrived after a full day driving with a 2 year old and were excited to get into our room. Had booked an ocean view double but when we walked in we found it was very small with a very strong 'hospital' smell. The couches were faded and had crumbs on them and the roof was (I'm 90% certain) asbestos. We went for a drive and thought about it then decided to upgrade to a garden view double room for $50 extra a night. The room was a little better but the fridge ... Read more

Great place to stay, overlooking the bay. Easy walk to downtown Hilo and a number of places to eat ago the way. The hotel offers buffets, however we stayed a few days before and after Mother's Day so the buffets were booked out. They were very popular so if you want to attend make sure you book early. Tip- if the buffet is on forget about getting any serves from the bar/coffee shop, took simply ages to get a drink. The rooms are very large and beds super comfortable, ask for a room that overloo...

The hotel is well located, close to the ocean and a lovely Japanese garden. There are shops and restaurants close by. We booked a standard room with a garden view and received a complementary upgrade to a deluxe room with an ocean view. The room was spacious and very clean. Housekeeping staff do a good job. Wifi was free in the lobby and worked very well. However, the charge for in room wifi was $10 per device for 24 hours. This is too much! To our dismay, after paying our $10, the wifi st... Read more

A good place to sleep and eat, an excellent base for trips to Volcanoes park and rain forest. Comfortable, clean with good service by hotel staff. Get a room with view of Hilo bay, not much more and well worth the money. Plenty of free parking . Need to provide free internet somehow. $9.99 per day is not competitive. Still, I would recommend it. I had 4G and LTE so no worries.

I had purchased this hotel on Hotwire. The check in woman was rather frosty with us and when I asked if she had an ocean front room available, she made a comment that I was already paying a low rate and that they did not have any ocean front rooms available I asked to pay for the upgrade and she told me that was not possible. . Instead I was given a very nice room, but it over looked a cement roof and parking lot. I later found out that they did have quite a few ocean front rooms. We had to park... Read more

The hotel is located on a quiet road and overlooks Hilo bay. The reception is open, no front doors, which initially felt odd. The hotel curves around the bay, so the corridors curve too, so you cannot see all the way to the end. Check in was very easy, I gave my name while looking for the booking and by the time I had found it, they already had my details up on the computer. I had booked a Deluxe Ocean View room and we were on the third floor. Looking straight out we could see the bay and palm ... Read more

My sister and I stayed 1 night at this hotel in April. The hotel is very nice, well kept, rooms super comfortable, spacious. The location is pretty nice, walking distance to Liliuokalani Park and Gardens and Coconut Island Park. Since we only stayed one night and it was raining all the time, we did not go to the pool. Which I was looking forward as the location seems nice and have nice views. We stayed in room with a garden view. It was very nice, though birds were really really loud. It was act... Read more

Expedia gives this hotel a 3.7 I would give it a 3 This is probably your best choice Hotel in Hilo even with the below issues but none are "deal breakers" Cons: Make sure your room is on the 5th floor or higher; if not you will be looking at mostly trees off the balcony. Make sure you DO NOT have a room on the end of the Hotel because there is a window the length of that wall and you hear all the parking lot noise ! This means car horns going off at night and people talking and everything ... Read more

Impressed when arriving at the huge open air lobby and the view of the bay and harbor through the huge windows at the back of the lobby. The staff was fabulous being friendly and helpful. Room was large and comfortable for our 4 night stay. Only 29 miles to Volcanoes National Park and close to many sites and downtown markets. Breakfast buffet was huge if a bit pricy (Not by Hawaii standards). Beautiful street Banyon Drive appropriately named with plenty of shaded walking paths and a gorgeous par... Read more

Wow....the Naniloa is going through extensive renovations and transforming into a beautiful and peaceful place to stay. If you want to get away from the touristy part of Hawaii...Hilo is the place to visit and the Naniloa is the place to stay. Great ocean view bar....friendly staff...clean rooms. Nothing fancy but glad that there is a nice place to stay while visiting the volcanos or waterfalls that East Hawaii has to see.

I traveled there last month with my elderly mother. They were able to provide me with great service. I am so thankful they knew how to accommodate us. The staff was such a joy to work with it made my trip easier.
