Staying again at my favorite place in Hilo - the Bay House. Great location right on the bay, walking distance to town. Tom and Tiny are great hosts, the food is delicious, and the rooms are nicely furnished! I'm staying in the Harbor room......heaven!

I recently spent 5 nights at the Bay House. This was my first time to Hawaii and the trip lived up to all expectations. The Bay House was so accommodating and made sure we had all of the assistance or advice on local activities that we asked for. The room (and balcony) were very clean and the entire property was...

I can't say enough about how fabulous the BayHouse is to stay at. Tom and Tina are friendly accommodating hosts suggesting great places to see. My husband had a blast golfing. The fresh fruit from the Farmer's market was a delicious treat every morning. After a long cold snowy winter the lush green scenery and warm weather refilled my soul.... More

Nicely appointed B & B. Situated right on Hilo Bay with 3 rooms. We stayed in the Palm room which was on the corner with a great view. Smaller lanai than others, but that was fine as this much more of a base for us to explore the east side. Tina is a nice host and I appreciated her hands... More

This is an awesome place to stay in Hilo. Tina was the best hostess we have had this far in our travels! Tina's breakfasts are amazing with hot and cold items including fresh fruit! And just enough to eat. I loved the breakfasts because they were well thought out and not just a poptart, bagels, and English muffins thrown at... More

Beautiful, comfortable rooms and wonderful hosts. We loved the delicious breakfast tray set out in the morning to take back to our room to enjoy. Great location just across the bridge from downtown. Easy walk to most attractions. Exceptionally clean! Covered parking.

My husband and I spent 2 nights here and wish we would have stayed longer. Tina, the hostess, was wonderful. Very nice and gave us our privacy. The view from our lanai was breathtaking. And the breakfast she provided was perfect. Fresh, local fruit with a sausage egg scramble that was better than my own. Very clean and in a... More

This was our first time at the Bay House Inn, and from the minute you walk in the door to your room, you know you're someplace special. I loved being right on the bay, listening to the waves lapping (or crashing) on the shore. Other comments have mentioned the coqui frogs, but I will not downgrade my rating because of... More

We have stayed here twice (in '08 in the Palm room and '14 in the Harbor room) and it has been great both times. The beds are comfy, the showers have good water pressure & temperature. To our delight an egg scramble was added to the breakfast. The Palm is bigger than the Harbor room, we had three bags &... More

Right on the bay, nice view from the lanai--watched a cruise ship come in one morning while we ate breakfast. Tom & Tina were great hosts, with a lovely house. It was nice having a garage to park in as well. Tina let us check in early--which was fabulous. Yes, every evening the coqui frogs are chirping in full force--but... More
