You get what you pay for here. At less than half the average hotel rate in Waimea, this hotel is a good option for people traveling on a budget. If that is your expectation, then you'll be happy. If you think you're going to be at a nice resort, you will be very disappointed. I read the reviews and knew...

I paid $94.00 (108.88 with taxes) for a weekday night with a AAA discount. The hotel proudly provides internet for an additional $9.95 per night. Due to a maintenance issue, our room was upgraded to a kitchenette, which makes that price a little bit more bearable, but only slightly. I have stayed in a lot of motels and unfortunately this...

The reviews of this place are pretty horrible, so we only picked it because there were no other options less than $200/night. But we were pleasantly surprised. You need to set your expectations appropriately: this is an old hotel that hasn't been renovated recently. So the carpets and linoleum are worn, and there are a few small stains on the...

I was reluctant to stay here after reading the reviews. However, it is in such a convenient location for my needs that I gave it a try. The nicest thing I can say is that "It is not the worst place I've ever stayed." The employees in the office were nice, especially the woman on duty late in the evening....

We entered our room and were overwhelmed by the smell of mold. Looking around the room there was dirt or mold on the walls, the curtains were stained, moldy, falling off the rails. The shower was pitted and moldy. We should not have stayed. We have been scratching ever since.

Booked a room with a kitchenette, but the only appliance was a mini refrigerator so that was a bit disappointing. The room itself was very large and that was a big plus, the room was clean, and it was nice to park the car right outside our room. It's very reasonably priced to stay here and it's pretty close to...

Got very sick and was hospitalized from my stay here at what I like to call the cockroach cottage. Save yourself from a miserable stay and a ruined vacation and head to Hilo for a nice cheap room or to a real nice hotel on the west side. This place was sickening and smelled of chemicals, yet still had rat...

This is a tired old motel that is in a perfect location for a newer building. It's located about 100 yards from the main intersection in town, which it shares with the main shopping center. The property itself, however, has seen better days and suffers from toommuch deferred maintenance, with rotted rafters, window sills, peeling paint, chipped shower tiles, and...

I am never happy when i pay for a hotel room and there is hair & blue soap scum in the bath tub from previous guest. It really grosses me out, even the toilet hadn't been cleaned and a drinking glass had toothpaste residue from the previous guest. No matter the price, location, or type of accommodation, every travel accommodation...
