Quaint lodge located within walking distance of historic Waimea (elevation 2,500 feet) and at the base of Mauna Kea. All rooms are spacious and have scenic mountain views complete with upcountry hospitality.
Central location and friendly staff.room was good size
The place is in dire need of updating.some obvious deferred maintenance(linoleum lifting around shower/ tub, mildew stains on window sill) some cosmetic. A new paint job could do wonders, for starters.
That it had beds and a shower.
That there was constant termite dust littering the bathroom. The blankets and sheets were so dirty that we used our own. The carpet was stained and gross looking. The tile was coming up. The price is too high for the location and the quality of the hotel.
The price was the lowest we could find at the moment. The town is small and one can easily walk almost anywhere one wanted to.
We stayed 2 days. After the first day we were asked by one of the cleaning staff if our room needed cleaning. We asked for more shampoo and towels. Returning that night we found no additional shampoo. The bed was not touched, and wet towels.
There is nothing fancy about this Inn. The price is fair given the market it is in. Waimea is a nice town away from the tourism. I was concerned given the previous reviews but there were really no problems with it. Don't expect it to compete with the Marriott on the ocean.
Convienient to Saturday market. This in not worth the price I had to pay.
When I read the description it sounded like this wonderful mountainous place and in fact it is in the center of town and the mountain view was not as expected. It was a nice place but I expected more from the description I had read. Very nice people run the place. Can't say enough good about them, but I would have stayed closer to Hilo also.
