My boyfriend and I recently stayed for a week at this B&B. For the first 6 nights we stayed in the James Michener room and the last night we stayed in the Bay room (I booked it this way because based on other's reviews, we thought we should stay in the Michener room as much as we could based on availability). We had a lovely time. Breakfast was good and Danny was very nice to hang out and talk with in the mornings. The Michener room has a nice bathroom with a large soaking tub and waterfall shower head, which we took full advantage of. The Bay room is nice as well - smaller bathroom but still a good room. You are in the downtown area of Hilo, so it was easy for us to park the car at the B&B and then walk into the town for dinner, etc. Overall, we really liked it here. The only downsides are that sometimes the street / neighbors can be noisy, but that really has nothing to do with the owners, and also, for all our nights, the noise basically quieted down when we were going to sleep anyway. There's the frogs, but I kind of liked their chirpy sound, and again, you will get that anywhere in Hilo really. Lastly, in the Bay and Michener rooms, if you are a light sleeper, you may wake up when they start making breakfast as you are near the kitchen. I'm a light sleeper and it woke me a few times, but it wasn't a big deal, and we were always getting up early anyway to eat breakfast and then start our daily adventure exploring the island. I would stay here again and I would definitely recommend to my friends and family.
