About Castle Hilo Hawaiian Hotel

Overlooking Hilo Bay, the Castle Hilo Hawaiian Hotel enjoys a beautiful location in Hilo, Hawaii. Hilo is a quaint, flower-filled retreat with Victorian homes and a restored downtown area that experiences more rain than any other American city. The Big Island of Hawaii offers a plethora of recreational opportunities. From surfing and scuba diving to volcano and waterfall exploration, there is something for everyone. Old banyan trees line the drive to the hotel, most of which were planted in the 1930's by celebrities such as Babe Ruth, Amelia Earhart and Cecil B. DeMille. Mauna Kea looms in the background and the arched bridge that leads to Coconut Island is only steps from the doors of the resort. The hotel is flanked by a beautiful beach, the Liliuokalani Gardens and the Naniloa Country Club.

Hotel was convenient for the tips we wanted to do. Room was fine with a good view. Restaurant was lifeless and dull with moderate food but good service. No atmosphere at all.

Really nice place to stay, right on the water
The beds are super comfy, the room is spacious, the facilities in the room are good. Enjoyed the outdoor pool and the nice gardens just next door. Loved the lobby. Just didn't like the lack of choice for vegetarians in the restaurants, and the buffet was mega expensive.

Good hotel in lovely location
The Castle Hilo Hawaiian Hotel was a great place to stay after our late flight into Hilo. The staff were friendly and the check-in quick. We arrived in the dark, but were very happy to wake up with a great sea view and in a quiet, pretty area on the outskirts of town. Although on the outskirts, it was possible to walk into Hilo in 30 mins.

Nice hotel by the sea and the airport
I stayed here 1 night in order to join heli tour the next day. The room was spacious and comfortable. The room I chose overlooked the sea and we could see beautiful rainbows in the morning. The breakfast was standard with good service. One tiny downside I had was that there was a tiny dead cockroach in the bathroom. Other than that, the hotel was recently renovated and the location by the airport was very convenient.
