Located at Hilo Bay along Banyan Drive, this is a 200-room hotel that was newly renovated inside and out. The hotel appeared deserted around the common areas when we were there. It must have been during a low tourist season. The room decor was updated and bright. The furniture seemed new, and the bed comfortable. The room had a balcony with direct ocean view. Bathrooms were spacious and clean. They serve a breakfast buffet for $10 right in the dining room by the lobby.
Free Wi-Fi access only in the oceanside building.
There are large gathering rooms for hosting seminars and meetings.
The best thing about this hotel is its location right by Hilo Bay .
Hilo Downtown is just a short distance away for shopping and dining. Make sure to check out the Hilo Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays and Sundays for your local supply of produce, fruits, and arts and crafts items.
The hotel staff were friendly and helpful.

My first impression of Naniloa Volcanoes Resort led me to immediately think of the film 28 Days Later. The caution tape and vacant retail spaces almost turned me around, as I thought the place wasn’t just closed but abandoned.
I was wrong, of course, and we were instantly greeted by a polite and professional staff member. Luckily, the renovated rooms are nothing like the exterior. They are beautiful. With Hawaiian decor and prints, they compliment the sunlight drenching the room extremely well. The nice patios are perfect for sunset views.
Stepping back out into the world, you’re reminded that the hotel isn’t entirely what it should be. Water fountains don’t work and conference rooms feel sparse. The area behind the hotel, however, is still nice: green areas with sitting areas against Kunio Bay.
The hotel offers buffet breakfasts and massages for a fee. $10 for adults for a full spread isn’t too bad, even in post-apocalyptic Hawaii.

One of the nicer and higher end hotels in Hilo and on Banyan Drive. The hotel is quite lovely and located right on the ocean front. Also, if you are staying anywhere along Banyan Drive during your time in Hilo they also offer a buffet style breakfast which is even open to guests not staying in the hotel. It's a bit pricey but if you're a fan of buffet breakfasts on your vacation you might want to check it out.
