Beautiful Sunsets of Hilo Bay at the Castle Hilo Hawaiian Hotel

What Do the Rooms Include?

All rooms have fee-based high-speed Internet access, daily housekeeping service, smoking and non-smoking options, refrigerator, coffee maker, phone with voicemail, and flat screen HDTV. Some rooms have views of Coconut Island, Hilo Bay, and the Pacific Ocean. Most rooms have a private lanai for enjoying the views.

What Amenities/Features Does Castle Hilo Hawaiian Hotel Include?

The hotel has a freshwater pool, a restaurant/lounge with a view of Hilo Bay, a café and lounge, safe deposit box at the front desk, soft drink and ice machines, a beauty salon, sun deck, and free Wi-Fi in the lobby and lounge. 

How Much Will a Stay at Castle Hilo Hawaiian Hotel Cost?

A standard Ocean View room runs around $170 a night while a spacious Junior Suite averages $194, making for reasonable upgrade. A one bedroom Banyan View suite is around $250 a night.

What's There to do Nearby?

A nine-hole golf course is across the street from the hotel, and it's next to the Liliuokalani Gardens. The Onekahakaha Beach is two miles away, and it's a 45-minute drive to the Volcanoes National Park. 

What's the Bottom Line?

The hotel offers a comfortable place to stay for any length of time. Unlike some Hilo hotels, it doesn't offer too many luxury touches, but it does offer a stunning view of Hilo Bay and a convenient location for exploring. At times, the housekeeping could stand to pay more attention to details, and maintenance isn't always on top of problems, but staff is friendly and do the best they can to take care of questions and respond to needs.

Expert Reviews
DK Eyewitness
The views from the guest rooms here are the best in Hilo. All have air-conditioning, televisions, on-demand movies, coffee makers, and baths.
This practical hotel is located directly on scenic Hilo Bay, offering ocean and Hilo Town views with Muana Kea (one of the island's dormant volcanoes) in the background.
