cockroach in room and bedbug bites on my legs
Beautiful view. Very accommodating staff.
The food at the restaurant was good. There were too many cats running around near the property.
It was very close to the airport which is convinent for travelers, our suite didn't have waterfront view but has a nice tropical garden view to it. Over all it was very nice, but I wish they would have more small appliances inside the rooms such as microwaves.
The staff was nice. The room just o.k. The room was tiny and for the price was a bit of a rip off. The balcony didn't lock. One of the smallest rooms I've stayed in and the bathroom reminded me of a hotel 6.
Breakfast buffet was extremely expensive, even with the discount, and food was terrible. Pancakes too hard to cut- yes, could not cut with a fork! Pancakes, bacon, and sausage were cold. Potatoes were OK. $18.00 for cold, hard food.
The really nice and welcoming greeting of aloha from the tall young man at the front desk. I wish I could remember his name, I believe it was a hawaiian name, he really made my stay as well as my other family members rooming on different floors right at home. Lack of parking spaces, and longer valet service.
It was a very clean hotel room. Comfortable settings. I did not see anything that I did not like.
Wonderful setting with water views Excellent restaurant
The hallways and rooms smelled like smoke. There was a dead spider on one of the beds. You could hear everything from voices, lanai sliders opening and closing to doors slamming.
I was there for business so unfortunately, I did not have a chance to enjoy the amenities or meals at the hotel. The room was large and comfortable. The staff that I did encounter (only checking in and checking out) was pleasant and shared the feeling of aloha. The view was lovely, even if we did not have an ocean view. The wi-fi in the room was not free. I ended up using my hotspot to connect, which was necessary for my business. There was not an ice machine on my floor and not sign or notice in the room where to find it. At that time, I didn't want to call or go look for a machine on another floor. It would also be nice to have a separate light switch for the toilet/shower so I would not disturb my co-worker when I woke up early to get ready. I ended up using the flashlight on my phone.
Well, it is old and dirty, mold every where. I did not get what I booked for. The worst is the coqui frogs killing me. I have to cancelled my second day booking and move to next door. After moving to next door, Ninalao hotel I can really tell the different. Overall, I definitely felt I was over charged for the stay in Uncle Billy. No more there.
Nothing The broken toilet seat, the ants coming out of the sink, broken sliding door, hair in the bath tub and the general mold. That was just in the room. The rest of it was run down and not maintained. We should have been paid to stay there
Was the dirtiest filthiest motel I've ever stayed in The frogs are screaming all night the place is a mess I'll never go back
Big room with cute garden in back, big fridge & close to venue Bath tub & counters in room were very slippery, most likely from shared cleaning/polish rag. Tub was so slippery I couldn't stand & fell entering, hurt my elbow, knee, foot & head while at international sports tournament. Manager came up (9:15pm) & after an hour told me there was nothing he could do, then offered me a different room(10:20pm), but refused to assist me in moving to other room even though injuries were too bad to do it alone since there was no bellman & he was only person on property. He informed me no one could fix it until Monday (Sat night was reservation) & to go to desk to fill out report in morning. In morning when I stopped by desk to fill out paper work after checking into another room at Naniloa hotel next door to take shower & rest, the Pagoda front desk phone was ringing non-stop with calls about water heater not working. They were responded to with a rude "I'll get to it when I can!" in a way that showed very little concern for the guests' needs for morning showers. I the main reason I got this room was to shower & sleep between a late night & early morning games, I was unable to do both because of pain, loud neighbors, huge bugs & lost hour to have managed do nothing.
Was very pleased with my stay. Location is steps to Hilo Bay, next to the Queen Lili'uokalani garden right on Banyan Dr. Gregg at the desk was very pleasant and helpful. Slightly older facility, and the tree frogs do quiet down after midnight. Good value.
Location Old, stinky, falling apart...literally. would not recommend to anyone.
Checking in was easy and fast. The staff was friendly! The room smelled musky. The carpet was grimy and so was the covers. It made us itch. No coffee maker.
Air condition The service staff was unorganized took one hr to check in..
Beds were comfortable. Good location. The place was outdated and dirty. The bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. We spent over a $100 for the night and the place was old and dirty. For this cost I would expect a more updated and certainly clean hotel room. The breakfast had muffins, toast and coffee. Not really much of a breakfast. The attached store offered few options for food as they were out of quite a few things. The frogs are a serious concern even with ear plugs.
Location Price Check in was fast Check out was fast Hot water is very hot. Room was spacious. Spotty almost non-existent Wi-Fi connection First room we checked into had not been cleaned, we had to go back to the front to let them know they had checked us into a room that had not been cleaned. Asked that the person who parked so close to my in-laws come down to move their car, person wasn't a registered guest, front desk did nothing, ignored us until we walked away. Parking spaces were too small. If you are not at your hotel by 5 p.m all the parking spots will be taken by other people, even if they aren't registered at the hotel, they don't check, so you will be stuck parking on the side of the street. Not enough outlets to plug in our phones. Other outlet in bathroom was loose and couldn't hold the cord for charge.
Close to the airport, right on the bay, nice staff (average). Such a dirty place! Couldn't believe the condition of the bathroom - mold everywhere, nasty stains on the walls, etc. The carpet throughout was probably never shampooed once in the 30+ years this place has been in operation. Being in this hotel was like being in a time machine set for 1979. Several parts of the lounge have been shut down completely. The view from the room was a disgrace. The people who work there are nice enough, but certainly not too busy to add a coat of paint or change the lobby flower arrangements (neither of which have been given consideration for a very long time). The room was terribly overpriced, and from the photos I had expected more. I'm so glad we only booked for one night!
Good price No elevator...
The woman at the reception desk when we arrived was full of the aloha spirit and very helpful. Location overlooking the bay was pretty. The hotel was worn and had seen better days.
Room smelled bad. Hard bed. Unfriendly staff.
Clean and pleasant staff.
It was cheapish. That's about it Very small rooms. No lift. No aircon. Very dated. Airport noise. Wouldn't recommend.
Although the decor is a little dated, everything is well cared for and the room was SO CLEAN and so tidy when we came in! The bed was comfy, the staff was personable, and I got to watch a sea turtle munching on algae from the back staircase. The WiFi was really spotty in our room, and the network wasn't password protected. The shower head was meh. Other guests were a little loud in the afternoon but they quieted down well before bedtime.
The most hospitable, friendly, and down-to-earth family run hotel I've stayed at. Very clean and simple accommodations with an excellent light breakfast. Great location and atmosphere. No complaints at all!
The old fashion Hawaiian atmosphere I little challenge trying to adjust the perfect water temperature for the shower
