Cons: Nothing this place is amazing.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The volume and the charm of the room. The healthy breakfast. The vibe of the place.
Cons: Nothing to dislike at Orchid Tree B&B. As a piece of information, when we stayed there (end of December), birds were singing at night pretty loudly, which can be a problem for light sleepers.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The best stay of this trip! Highly recommend to everyone who will visit Hilo.
Cons: None
9.5 Excellent
Pros: This is just a beautiful place providing so many pretty details. We stayed there two nights. The B&B has only two rooms, so it felt very familiar. The host took a lot of time to give us tips and recommendations for how we could spend our time in the area. Our room with its furniture and facilites was high-class, especially the bathroom. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. On the first morning we had a fresh fruit plate and fresh waffles and on the second morning we were provided a fresh smoothie and croissants. It was really lovely. We would definitively book this B&B again. After sunset the many wild birds start their "jungle-concert", so don't forget to bring your earplugs.
Cons: Nothing to complain about.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: really clean, nicely decorated. Wow breakfast. Great location.
Cons: Having come from dry climate and having to adjust to the humidity, it would have been nice to have air conditioning. Which also contributed to having to keep window open at night and having to deal with a cacophony of frog and insect noises.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Breakfast provided was fresh and yummy Property very clean, bathroom very clean
Cons: The room was stuffy when all windows and doors were closed because the fan is on a limiter with no air con available. Had to keep all windows and doors open because of this and were then kept awake by the caucophony of frogs from sunset to sunrise - the ear plugs provided by host were irritating to me, someone who has never used them before and did not keep out much noise. I nearly lost my mind on the first night and got sleep between 7-9:30am.

Pros: Breakfast is exceeded my expectations!! Ocean view is so great!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is great! The owners are wonderful people; friendly and informative. The breakfasts were also wonderful. I loved the fresh fruit every morning. I'll miss the papaya.

Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Stayed for two nights. Hotel located approx 20 minutes outside of downtown Hilo. Feels remote even though it is so close to everything. The falls are great. 20 minutes to Akaka falls and Hawaiian tropical botanic gardens. The dinner with the private chef was amazing! Well worth the money and a highlight of our trip. Coffee on the communal lanai in the mornings was great, as well as wine in the evening. Other patrons were friendly and interesting. If you are considering this place, please book! Big shout out to Alice the cat. Love her. We walked on the path to the falls and statues and bamboo garden, which was lovely, but did not do any of the adventures. Staff was lovely and room was clean. View from the room lanai was also pretty.
Cons: Parking was rocky for our compact rental car, but really not a big deal. Room was on the smaller side but again, not a big deal.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The natural surroundings, the waterfall and rainforest are spectacular. The staff were very welcoming and Alex was particularly great at looking after our needs.
Cons: We were expecting individual units but found we were sharing a 6 bedroom house with a series of families over the four nights we were there. There was a kitchen that was old and worn and was not set up well for self catering even though the location is remote and living space that was shared quickly filled with members of families all sharing their lives of which we were not a part so we sometimes felt quite awkward. Had we been aware of this or been placed in a room with our own balcony our stay would have been more pleasant.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Duvet was too heavy but we did fine with sheets
Cons: A balcony to relax on
9.5 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The proximity to the falls was amazing. The caretaker Laura was particularly friendly and helpful.
6.3 Good
Pros: Amazing views. Close to nature. Love the front cabin space.
Cons: Rules were unclear. The staff interaction was weird and uncomfortable. The cabin windows were unfinished. The rocks on the driveway were loud and cabins too close to each other, hot with no AC; so very hard to sleep. Dangerous walkways to the water.
7.5 Good
Cons: Was rather disappointed with the breakfast that provided nothing but sugar loaded foods. Some fresh fruit but not even boiled eggs. Pancakes, sweet breads and condiments, sweetened yoghurt... No thanks. Bring some fresh produce in that gives you good long lasting energy please for that price! Also seems like a hidden fee ($10) is jumped on you once you're there and not mentioned while booking via booking.com.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This hotel is perched overlooking a majestic waterfall, pouring into one of the best natural swimming holes I’ve ever experienced. This is the perfect spot for a swim before breakfast. The staff were kind and accommodating. The beautiful grounds feature a variety of bamboo and orchids. The opposite bank of the valley facing the hotel is a wall of untouched forest, making you feel immersed in the landscape. Great breakfast, too. Don’t miss the sweet black cat that accompanied me on my walk to the falls!
9.3 Excellent
Pros: There is an on-site waterfall which you have access too. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast spread was amazing. Great waffles.

Access to the beach is 1 minute walking, just crossing the road. Maureen’s is an Encyclopedia and can speak about Horses and Politics, and prepares a good breakfast too!
Cons: If you are looking for luxury and air conditioning places, this is not for you. This is a truly Experience to stay in an unique place.

6.3 Good

8.8 Excellent
Pros: People who work there; standard of the hotel;
Cons: Hotel is not named Castle when you look it for; breakfast not included to price
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, friendly staff, beautiful ocean view, and comfortable room. I would stay here again.
4.3 Okay
Pros: It was right next to Hilo Bay where you can watch the fireworks on 4th of July.
Cons: 1) It was dated, needs renovation. 2) We ate at the cafe for dinner, we waited for awhile to get seated which was fine because it was busy that night due to 4th of July. However, she sat us on a table that she cleared but didn’t wipe so some parts of the table were still wet from the previous guests water rings and such. 3) we ate at the buffet the next day and the service wasn’t good either. We sat a few tables away from where the other guests where seated and the server rarely came to check on us. We had to constantly go to them to ask for things like coffee and ketchup. She only basically gave service to the ones closer to her. 4) when we checked out to go back to Kona (because that’s where we were flying out from), half way through our drive I realized that we forgot our jackets in one of the drawers as well as my son’s water shoes on the balcony. We called the hotel back and they said that the housekeeping didn’t notify them of any belongings that was left in the room, very dishonest on their part. 5) The hotel is tucked away somewhere where there’s not much restaurants around except for their own restaurant in the Hotel which had bad service.
6.8 Good
Pros: Location is good. The sea view is great.
Cons: Air conditioner is really loud.
7.5 Good

Cons: The shower head, I prefer hand held sprayerwith adjustable settings.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I'm not much into resort hotels, so this one was perfect for me. The hotel was probably less than 50% full, which was really nice. It was a quiet and restful stay. It's location was ideal, and the price was really fair. The room was clean, large, and had a wonderful view. All of the staff that I came into contact with were really helpful and polite. I love Hilo. The air is so clean, the colors are vibrant, and it's almost exactly as I remember it, in the 1970s. This hotel, and the good weather I enjoyed, made my visit as good as I could have hoped for.
Cons: That I couldn't stay longer.
7.0 Good
Pros: Friendliness
Cons: Hotel Resort Fee
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: Location
Cons: An absolute dump! I actually like to refer to this place as the dump of all dumps. Room had ants in it, about 5 diff kinds of hair around the bathroom sink and what looked like vomit on the bed skirt. A shocking display of ignorance by this hotel.

6.3 Good
Cons: The staff was very friendly but they weren't good organized so there was a lot of waiting. Waiting at the front desk, waiting for towels (sometimes they'd didn't have towels but it took up to 20 minutes to get this answer while got were sent from one to another). The hotel is nice but it is really noisy. They have an old ventilation that makes really bad noise and in some rooms it is impossible to stay or sleep because of the noise. And some nights there is maintenance for the restaurant which is even more noisy. Or you are sitting at breakfast and they start to clean the pavement right beside you with a pressure washer which makes 70 db. The poll is small but nice and it is a beautiful view
10.0 Excellent

Pros: Loved the location and all of the amenities on site. Grounds of the hotel were well kept! Kapohokine Adventures being on site was a nice bonus!
Cons: Room was not clean and felt very stale and sticky! I loved the hotel but the guest room was where we went to get clean and sleep and relax. Doesn't feel relaxing when you don't want to touch anything. Would not stay here again simply for that.
7.0 Good
Pros: Great location, room with ocean/bay view high f floor was wonderful;
Cons: Hospitality and friendliness of staff could have been better; both at reception and restaurant; hotel might need a little renovation
4.3 Okay
Cons: Terrible guest service So, the whole day, no one cleans the room. At 9 pm when we back to the hotel, we called the customer service, and It took a long ten minutes for someone to answer our call. When we told them about our situation, the guest service denied their mistake and claimed that they had already cleaned our room. We also told them to check our room, and no one responded for 30 minutes until we came to the lobby. After waiting for another 20 minutes in the room they finally decide to clean our room, merely. Overall, the whole experiences hooked way longer than it should. The guest service is rude and distrust whatever we said.

Pros: The location was perfect, it was close by to a lot of the things we wanted to do on the island, we had a nicely private little area, etc. Don't go in expecting a lot of amenities. No breakfast (though there is coffee always available), not even a TV in the room (which was perfect for us, but don't go in with the expectation that it's going to be like your typical hotel)
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff, hostel atmosphere. There’s a shared outdoor gathering space, coin operated washers and dryers. The room was basic but fine. We had a two bedroom suite with beds in what was originally a living room so there were four single beds and a double. The room had a kitchenette.
Cons: As long as you realize this is a hostel more than a hotel, you will love it here.

Pros: Staff was friendly and the place was clean. Breakfast was excellent. Appreciate the bike availability and the pool looked very inviting.
Cons: The place is out of date and is along a busy road. They offered me a room with a king size bed, but I would have to climb the narrow steps with my heavy bag. Got the feeling that those rooms had been updated. I don’t usually spend this kind of money for a hotel so my expectations were high.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Me and my wife we love this place. It’s made us feel like home not a hotel. The owner was very nice he had fruits for us in the kitchen. At night we sleep very peaceful cause all the birds and animals sound. I would love to come back here again. Highly recommended to stay here, if you want to feel like living on the island.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The bed was very comfortable, but the pillows were not as fluffy as we wanted them to be. However, I love how the room felt homey and looked cute. There’s a ceiling fan and AC. (The AC was noisy though.) There is no office to check in and out, so you have to call the number that was provided to be able to access the room. Whoever answered the phone and took my information was very nice. He called me as soon as my room accommodation was confirmed. (We were able to get in the property early without any extra fee.) The staff who was there to assist us was Alan. He was very helpful. I asked for an extra bed. We left for awhile to eat lunch and did a few errands. When we got back, there was an extra bed and ready to be used. (So thankful because my husband was able to rest after a long drive from Kona to Hilo. We took Southwest.) Interestingly, the bathroom had an open shower area. The water pressure was perfect! Overall, we love the cottage!
Cons: No floor towel to dry the wet floor after taking a shower, so we left the window open to air dry the floor.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We brought our own food
Cons: Clearer check-in information.
7.5 Good
Pros: Lovely garden and very close to the beach. Nice kitchen and friendly & helpful staff.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Cynthia, the host, is amazing and so helpful. The room was nice and big. The bed was comfortable and there was a cooling fan that cooled the air and circulated it, which was helpful because it was a bit humid. The house also had a very nice outside sitting area where you come in and we had dinner there. Cynthia also set up the coffee pot for us so we could have coffee in the morning, as we were departing around 5am, and told us how to make toast and where the milk and jam was. All in all, the stay was great and I would recommend staying.
Cons: There was nothing bad about this stay.

Cons: Breakfast was included but barely had toasts, jelly, ginger cookies, milk and pancakes, and a couple of bananas, so we ended up buying fruit and cereals ourselves. It was scary dusty under the bed.
4.0 Okay

10.0 Excellent
Pros: I think this place is safe and very comfortable. There are strange people rooming but that is to be expected. The common room lighting is really dark and depressing.
Cons: the poor lighting in the common room.. get LED bulbs
6.3 Good
Pros: Nice clean rooms, spacious, old but very beautiful building. Antique furniture. Very pretty!
Cons: Staff was not very helpful. I had to wait in front of the door for hours before they opened up. I arrived at 10.30 am and their reception/ checkin starts at 1pm. They could have at least let me in the living room or the common space. I tried contacting them, phone and mail. No reply. They'd open up the kitchen with a 1'5h delay. So at 8.30
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great to stay in a vintage hotel!
4.5 Okay
Pros: Location and cheap booking.com price (price on booking.com is 15 dollars cheaper than the website)
Cons: The staff is very rude. I might have been arriving 15 minutes late and the person behind the desk was nog prepared to wait, even if I had paid a late check-in fee. He was never available at the work hours he said he would be, and came in late everyday. The worst part was when I had to leave. My bus would leave at 1:30 p.m. but checkout was at 11 a.m. The owner just kicked me out because I "wasn't a guest anymore". Not a pleasant stay.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Great location and a lovely building. There's a huge common area which would be great for socialising, need a few more people there though. Check-in was quick and easy, the lady who runs the place is a delight. The rooms are comfortable and a nice temperature, the kitchen has everything you need.
Cons: The showers need to be finished off a bit better, and it would be nice if they'd change the shower heads. A Microwave would be useful as well.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Good location and good bed

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very friendly and treated us like we were family staying in their home. They were very accommodating when we asked for another room because we did not like the room we got, they gave us another room without charging us extra.
Cons: The stairs were a killer carrying up our luggage to the third floor was a great workout. It also kinda sucks if there’s no air conditioning because it does get hot and muggy in Hilo and it’s hard to sleep when it’s so hot.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Clean and simple. Great for a short stay. Reasonably priced compared to the expensive hotels on the crowded Kona side. Hilo is quiet and friendly.

Pros: Regular refrigerator although this should not be classified as "kitchenette" unit
