We have stayed at the Hilo Seaside on previous occassions as the other major Hilo Hotels were booked, but overall it is a no frill budget hotel that is clean and comfortable. We slept well and that is what matters.

Great jungle atmosphere close to Volcano national park. Two older children, one teen and one parent on this trip - Cedar Cottage had plenty of room for us. Very clean with good kitchen supplies and amenities. Host was there when we arrived at 4:30 and provided great supplies for breakfast each morning.

If you are headed to the Hilo area, avoid the crowds of town and the hotel life. Instead, opt for an adventure outside of Keaau. This wonderful bed and breakfast provides all the amenities you need with a beautiful view of the ocean, a pool to swim in, and free breakfast. We stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage in the back when we were visiting UH-Hilo. It was less than a half hour drive into town and worth it. We only stayed for two nights, but will try to come back for longer next time. The property is beautifully maintained and Mary is very friendly as the proprietor. My daughters loved the drive to the B&B, which included a drive on a very hilly but smooth road. We were all laughing going up and down the little hills. It is quiet here, there is a few coqui frogs, but they didn't bother us at all, better than city sounds. Come and sit on the beautiful wrap around lanai and just look out to the ocean as the waves crash against the rocks. I would highly recommend this place over any Hilo hotel.

Sugar was once king in Hilo. Now, the town is known for its bay, shops, and farmers market that teems with exotic fruit. Swaying hips abound at Hilo’s Merrie Monarch Festival, a week-long hula contest held after Easter. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is nearby. There, Kilauea is the hottest attraction as one of the world’s most active volcanoes. At its helm is Pele, the Hawaiian volcano goddess.
