A Travelers InnDo you want to visit the Hawaiian Islands, but not be part of the tourist crowd? Does your idea of the perfect Hawaiian trip include:
Old Hawaiian Island Style AmbianceThe Wild Ginger Inn Hotel & Hostel has an old fashion country atmosphere that reflects its era. Originally, the building was a 1920's sugar cane plantation workers house. In the 1950's it was converted into an Inn with 27 private bedrooms with baths. In keeping with the original look and feel, you'll experience the Hawaiian laid back, simple living style with a relaxing ocean view. Although we have not completely updated to join the 21st century, some modern day comforts have been provided in a few upgraded rooms such as a cable TV, mini refrigerator, and microwave.
Because the property is one block up from the ocean and slants uphill, the nearby ocean breeze provides a natural cooling effect at the inn. The building is positioned to catch the trade winds. Hilo, Hawaii is the windward side of the island and there is nothing to block the breeze except trees. Our grounds are tropical with bamboo and banana trees shading the building. There is no air conditioning here, but each room has a ceiling fan and cross ventilation.
AmenitiesThe Wild Ginger Inn Hotel & Hostel is very unique in that we pride ourselves in offering affordable lodging rates and the following ammenities:

Hilo is not your typical tourist location, but rather a traveler's location where one looks for a place stay at reasonable price and to explore the island. Being in Hilo, Hawaii is like living in the Hawaiian past in the suburbs. In fact most of the buildings, streets and roads haven't changed much since the 1950's. This statement is also holds true for the Inn as well.
