If you're looking for a good clean place to stay in Hilo, this will do the trick. The location is pretty nice on Banyan drive, and there is a great selection of restaurants with in EASY walking distance. The hotel is a pretty average DoubleTree with the usual amenities, but nothing out of the ordinary barring the location. The staff...

We wanted to stay in Hilo due to its proximity to Volcanoes National Park. When we initially searched for hotels in Hilo they all seemed to be way below our standards. Luckily, we found out that the Grand Naniloa was newly renovated. We stayed in an Ocean Front Junior Suite. The suite came equipped with a microwave, a refrigerator and...

A big Thankyou to the wonderful hospitality and the extra lengths the staff went to to make our visit comfortable and pleasurable. My husband was extremely unwell on the first day and dear Marieta worked tirelessly to get us an early checkin during a very busy time. Brenda found as a cab for our lava ocean tour an hour away...

This is an excellent hotel in a great location. It is located on Banyan Drive in Hilo. The other highly TA rated hotels are nearby, including the Hilo Hawaiian and the Seaside. In my opinion, the Grand Naniloa is the best of the bunch. Most of the hotel has been renovated, including the lobby, lounge, fitness room, buffet area and...

Now I'm a sucker for a classic hotel - but this one has been refurbished in style and great taste by Hilton. The interior and decor is right up to date without losing the class and character of the 1940's original. Great room with Bay views and was offered a choice by reception on check in. Staff overall were outstanding....

I was disappointed in my stay at this property. I liked the way the pool was set right by the ocean but it was so cold that even my daughter couldn't stay in it long. There were no towels by the pool or even a sign to let you know where to get them. It would of been nice if...

Love the warm cookies! This is my favorite place to stay on the Hilo-side of the Big Island. I get the best night's sleep here, with the gentle lapping of the waves and the sweet ocean air......However, beware of drones, peering in your windows!

Excellent hotel, very friendly staff, clean modern room and bath. 5 star level. Food was very good. View of Hilo Bay was great, only 10 ten minutes from airport and 30 minute drive to hiking area to view volcanoes.

The staff is mostly courteous throughout the hotel. I would say that the hostess at the buffet could use a little work. Instead of seating you it was sort of a Free for all when getting a table. Makes for quick payment but also confusion for who is sitting at a table and who isn't. Parking can be somewhat dumb...
