We had a great 3 night stay at the Bay House. It's in a convenient location, just across the bridge from downtown, on the ocean with nice views from each of the three rooms. There is a common room with a small sharing library, microwave, refrigerator etc. Our room was clean, tastefully furnished (Hawaiian quilts) and spacious; the hosts friendly at all times.
The hot tub overlooking the ocean was a happy bonus. Hilo gets some rain, so we were happy to spend a little time in the tub during a light evening rain.
Uncle Billy's Hotel
Room rates are $84-114 per day.
(see their site for a $71 internet special)
They have a room and car package for $28 more per day.
The grounds around 'Uncle Billy's' looked so inviting and so in the spirit of aloha that I decided to present these four shots here to give you a little idea of what staying here would be like.
As you see there is a lovely water walk in the center and all the way around the hotel. Goldfish inhabit ! The lower right picture has a gazebo near the center barely visible. The lobby is a delight to enter.
The hotel is locally owned and they also have a hotel in Kona.
Add $25 for a single night's stay
$25 for third person
