The Hilo Hawaiian is right on the bayfront, and offers great views. It's an older building, the hotel shows it's wear...but everything about it is so..."Hawaiian." I couldn't stop tinking about my parents being here forty years ago, and it looking just as it does now.

The rooms are very clean, and the staff is incredibly friendly. The best thing about it, we got a waterfront room for under $100 a night. With deals like that, I'll bite.

Hilo can be a great place to start a day at the volcano or exploring waterfalls for the day. There are few "hotels" in Hilo to begin with, and this one fits the bill. It's gonna rain, everyday. But it clears up quickly.

The restaurant downstairs, the Queen's Court, offers a great seafood buffet on Friday and Saturday nights. MAKE reservations. This is popular with the locals.

Unique Qualities: Our room overlooked the cove. Even when it rained, the views was relaxing.

FYI...our room was haunted.
