The 18 guestrooms and suites at the Dolphin Bay hotel are sure to please. Families will enjoy twin and queen beds in the various rooms, which range from standard one-room studios to two-bedroom suites. Rollaway beds are available, which allow the rooms to sleep up to six, and kitchens are standard in every accommodation type. The hotel offers free breakfast daily, though no restaurant for lunch or dinner. It is close to downtown Hilo where families can shop and dine. Parking and Wi-Fi are also free at this hotel. There is no pool, but Dolphin Bay is close to Volcanoes National Park where families can enjoy an outdoor adventure.

We spent two great nights at this quiet hotel/apartment complex. They upgraded us to an apartment from a suite for $149/night. This included living room, kitchen. We were needing to get out of our family bungaloo up the coast due to fleas (yes, we washed and dried everything EXTENSIVELY before arriving at Dolphin Bay). Which was good, because the hotel cat was just adorable and friendly. More than our cats even! The staff was quick, courteous and the room clean and quiet.

This property is close to downtown, adding a lot of convenience. My room was clean, yet older. It reminded me of an old Route 66 sort of place. The staff was VERY nice and the grounds are pretty. There is not any AC here. That was not a problem as far as the temperature went, but it did mean that I needed to leave windows open and that means loud frogs. Overall, I would stay here again, although I would be just as likely to try something new,
