We loved this updated hotel in Hilo, it kept the retro Hawaii vibe while still was very modern. The staff were friendly and efficient. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We love their earth friendly philosophy! It is right across from a lovely lagoon and a short walk along Banyan Drive will take you to some beautiful gardens. We were very happy with our stay here and will gladly stay again!

SCP Hilo Hotel has everything we could ask for an authentic Hilo experience with an old Hawaii feel combined with a modern twist. We love: - the warm welcome with the Hilo made kombucha tasting - the eco concept and newly remodeled spaces - the 24h freshly grounded coffee/tea/hot and cold water dispenser - the comfy bed and nice shower - the bicycles and paddles - the great location at the edge of the park on the waterfront - the entrance lobby with their peaceful and relaxing sitting areas This hotel really made our stay in Hilo memorable. It’s definitely a keeper!

Best front desk staff of any hotel I’ve been to in a decade. So friendly and helpful. And the hotel for the price is unbeatable. Nice location, comfortable beds, 24/7 coffee…who could ask for more? The flights into Hilo airport can wake you up but it isn’t too early and you probably want to get going on your adventure anyway. Parking is easy. The pool is peaceful. Just overall a great experience, and it was four of us including a 10 and an 8 year old!

Funky hotel that is eco conscious. Rooms good and updated but age of the layout shows. Interesting layout and parking a bit tough. Lobby great and free gourmet coffee and you can try kombucha from a local shop. Restaurant is attached to the hotel but separate entrance and not part of the hotel. Workout room has 2 pelotons and trx and some other equipment but limited. Front desk staff is nice. Pool area is awesome but no hot tub. Close to everything.
