We stayed 2 nights in this hotel in Hilo for a visit to the volcanos. We upgraded our bookings for an ocean front as per room advice from Trip Advisors. Our flight arrived at 2:30 pm and after picking up the rental car we were at the hotel by about 3:20 pm, just after their advertised check-in time of 3...

We wanted to stay in Hilo due to its proximity to Volcanoes National Park. When we initially searched for hotels in Hilo they all seemed to be way below our standards. Luckily, we found out that the Grand Naniloa was newly renovated. We stayed in an Ocean Front Junior Suite. The suite came equipped with a microwave, a refrigerator and...

Great service, clean, fantastic location! We had a suite with an amzing view. Great view. A lot of reviews mention construction for the remodel, but seems to be complete in the main building. Parking wasn't great, sometimes had to park across the street. Small issue for an otherwise fantastic hotel.

A very nice hotel to stay at, especially if you're visiting Hilo or the Volcanoes National Park. We loved the view from our 12th floor suite, room was very clean, and the staff was very helpful. Very nice grounds, looking forward to returning once all the renovations are complete.

We are a younger couple traveling for our anniversary. Our room was one of the end of hall suites with the nice bathtub and separate bedroom. The room was gorgeous and romantic, though if you are prudish, maybe not your thing. The bathtub is out in the living area...like I said, romantic. The service was excellent and breakfast was included...

Really enjoyed staying here. It's right on the water (no real beach) and a short walk to a nice park. Comfortable room, Really nice bar and swimming pool. Tuesday nights at the bar are fun during Thirsty Tuesdays. Good price that included a very good breakfast buffet. I highly recommend it.

We stayed here for two nights while in Hilo. The hotel itself is located right on the ocean, but I would not recommend going into downtown Hilo from the hotel unless you're driving as it's not the best area. The tours that run out of the hotel are great, and all facilities including the gym were very nice. The included...

My wife won a free trip at a bridal show and this hotel was pre-arranged for us. But we couldn't be more happy that they chose this hotel. It was absolutely amazing. From the extremely clean rooms and hotel lobby, nightly entertainment and an awesome bar area to the fabulous beach front area and pool. This place has breakfast, lunch...

On our last visit a year or two ago, the hotel has been purchased by a Honolulu developer who had the remodeling project under way. The lobby was blocked off as there was nothing inside except construction materials, dining room wasn't open and the reception area, if you could call it that, was off the parking lot on the south...
