Where to stay in Hilo

About Hilo

Once a bustling sugar port, today Hilo is one of Hawaii's most charming coastal towns anchored by a walkable downtown district where you'll find fantastic farmers markets and museums. You can gaze up at smouldering craters in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, hike to multicoloured Rainbow Falls and soak up the sun on the Hamakua Coast.

Things to do

Overlooking the bay, Liliʻuokalani Park is a scenic place to enjoy an afternoon picnic or a sunset stroll. The beautifully kept Japanese gardens are dotted with banyan trees, emerald lawns, koi ponds and pagodas. On a clear day, you can see stunning views of Mauna Kea volcano.

For a glimpse at the Big Island's colourful history, don't miss the Lyman Museum & Mission House. The pint-sized museum is filled with everything from lava rocks and rare shells to traditional island jewellery and Hawaiian tattoo art tools.

One of Hilo's top attractions is the Panaʻewa Rainforest Zoo & Gardens. Filled with tropical plants, the zoo is brimming with monkeys, sloths, parrots and reptiles. It's also home to Sriracha and Tzatziki, a pair of magnificent Bengal tigers.

Head to golden sands that line Onekahakaha Beach Park, perfect for a family day out, thanks to its shallow water. Nearby Richardson's Ocean Park is another local favourite, attracting sunseekers with its gleaming black sand, rolling surf and the occasional sea turtles.

Getting around

Local buses run throughout Hilo, while bicycles are an eco-friendly way to get around. Cars are the best way to explore the Big Island at your own pace. Flights touch down at Hilo International Airport, located just outside the town centre.

  • What are the best hotels on Bayfront Hwy in Hilo?

    Many hotels in Hilo sit on Bayfront Highway, which is a popular route through Hilo. For starters, it runs the entire length of Hilo Bay through downtown Hilo, and on top of that, this road offers several dining and nightspot options, plus gives visitors easy access to all sorts of outdoor activities and water sports. The Wild Ginger Inn Hotel is a great choice for a Hilo hotel that is right along this route in the western part of the downtown area.

  • Are there kid-friendly hotels in Hilo?

    For any family that is making a trip to Hilo, you would expect to be in a location where there is plenty for the entire family to see and do. With that said, you still most likely want to find a nice cheap hotel in Hilo that offers plenty of amenities that the entire family is going to like, such as a pool or easy access to some of the amazing beaches you will find in this part of the world. One nice bonus would be to book hotels in Hilo that sit in a great location that also offers easy access to several destinations and activities the kids will love. One family-friendly hotel in Hilo that checks all of those boxes is The Grand Naniloa Hotel Hilo - a DoubleTree by Hilton. Not only does this kid-friendly hotel in Hilo offer a pool and have a location right on the water's edge, but it is also close to Moku Ola / Coconut Island where you can do some swimming, have a picnic or a barbecue, and do some fishing. It is also close to Liliʻuokalani Park and Gardens, which is a large park that offers koi ponds for kids to explore.

  • How do I find a peaceful and quiet hotel in Hilo?

    By its very nature, the town of Hilo is a rather quiet and secluded place compared to some of the more vibrant and tourist-filled destinations you will find in Hawaii. Even with that, if you stay in the downtown area or near the water's edge you are probably going to be in for a little more noise and congestion. So, if you need to find cheap hotels in Hilo that are a little quieter during your stay, it is always best to stay tucked back into the more suburban areas. One amazing choice for a hotel that does this is The Inn at Kulaniapia Falls, which is in a quiet neighborhood in Hilo. Even though you are staying a fair distance from the center of the city, it is still only about a 15-minute drive to get there. If you have specific dates in mind, it’s recommended to book in advance. If you prefer public transportation to get you to downtown, the Big Island of Hawaii offers their Hele-On Bus service that transports passengers not only in Hilo but also to other destinations throughout the island.

  • What neighborhoods in Hilo have the best restaurants?

    There are quite a few dining options you will find in Hilo, both along the water's edge as well as on Kilauea Avenue as you head back into the center of Hilo. In this area, you will find cuisine such as woodfired pizzas, sandwich shops, Thai food, Asian-fusion spots, as well as local restaurants offering Hawaiian cuisine, such as poke bowls. A beautiful hotel choice that put you within a short walk or drive of many of these dining establishment is The SCP Hilo Hotel, which sits very near the water just to the east of all of these dining choices.
