I read previous reviews, and was wondering what I would get. In short: I got a nice place and had a great stay! On arrival, Jade was not there, but there was a phone to call him, and he gave me instructions how to get into the house and my room. The house is gorgeous, and the rooms are nice.... More

Oddly we never met the proprietor and were never told when breakfast was, and thus never had any. We did observe that it existed- though it didn't seem like anything exciting. We stayed in two rooms. Both clean but not attentively decorated or cared for. The Volcano Room bed was lumpy, but we were so tired we slept fine. The... More

Despite the advertised promise of a full B&B, this facility tried to charge an extra $15 per person for breakfast. The room had a good view of downtown Hilo, but the hosts were never around (we had to call in order to obtain an entry code). The shower offered little pressure and the bed was lumpy. Avoid

We stayed for 3 nights and it is located just about a mile from central Hilo. This B&B provides an at home feeling. The family,dining,and kitchen were spacious and were welcomed to use at any time. Jade and his father were helpful in getting us checked in. My wife and I had the Volcano room which had a separate bathroom... More

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and really enjoyed it. We booked the legacy suite and thought it was a great value. We had a large bedroom and bathroom as well as our own fridge and microwave. We had a great view of the bay and our own private porch. Although it is not ocean side, the... More

We stayed here for one night in April in the Legacy Suite. We did not spend much time in the B&B or the room, as we headed to the volcano just after we checked in. It was very nice & quiet, except for the loud frogs at night - but that just adds to the ambiance of the surroundings. The... More

We stayed at hilltop legacy for one night. What you need to remember about staying here is that this a a family home with rooms available for guests. It's not a hotel. The rooms were comfortable with a huge tv screen and all amenities available. The check in process was easy and hassle free, we spent very little time at... More

Me and my Mum spent two nights at the Hilltop last september... We have wonderful memories of the people who run this b&b .. American hospitality and Japanese kindness coniugate perfectly in the person of Jade.. In life, t is wonderful to meet people that can leave remarkable memories, even in a short time
