  • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Breakfast was nice. But room and serivise were not so special. I think I could find better places with the same price to stay in Hilo. I was disappointed with the hot tub. It didn't look like we could use.

What can be better than sitting on the lanai (was going to say balcony but this is Hawaii!), having a nice breakfast, overlooking the ocean and tropical vegetation, the water reflecting the sun, with the sound of the waves crashing below. Location, location! Tina, the proprietor, was very friendly and unobtrusive. Parking was on site in a garage. The place was spotless and the room very nicely appointed. Breakfast is prepared at 7am and left out in the common area, so you can pick up and take to your room at your leisure. Although basic, the breakfast is definitely much better than hotels that serve free breakfasts. Only potential downsides are lack of A/C although a big floor fan is provided and there is a ceiling fan which helps. I would estimate the room was around 80 degrees F, definitely warmer than I usually keep it. The second potential downside is the night noise. You could choose to close the outside door but then you'd have to deal with the room getting hotter. I didn't mind the crashing waves, which I find soothing, but you can hardly hear them with the fan on full. But the frogs can make an awful racket and I had to use the ear plugs which were provided. These mating calls did go on all night, so obviously a lot of unlucky bachelor frogs out there. On my second night, the frogs were much quieter (so maybe they did have some luck after all!) and I slept without earplugs. Overall, a very nice B&B, great location, and well worth the money,

The property was in a beautiful location and the sound of the surf hitting the shore was great. The room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. We didn’t see our hosts at all after check-in. A bit unusual for a B and B. Otherwise it was a wonderful stay.
