Good amenities and location. Gracious host and healthy breakfast. Beds are very comfortable. We had two rooms and both had just had new carpet installed that week. This is a very good example of 1930's living high above Hilo's shore.

We enjoyed our two nights in a comfortable, clean room in a quiet neighborhood of Hilo. Very good breakfasts including pastries, eggs and some of the fruits that we were discovering for the first time in our lives. Geckos allowed on the table and even fed by other guests of the bed and breakfast were not appreciated by us. There...

The colonial style house is set in a quiet residential district of Hilo.It is within a 15-minute drive from Hilo airport and looks out over a beautiful garden.

We stayed at the OHB&B for one night. The house is in a very quiet neighborhood and the place is well maintained. We had the Sun Room, which was nice, but small.( and has only a shower, which did not matter to us) The backyard is beautifully maintained with a huge lawn, nice flowers and trees. The hostess Lory was...

This was a charming bed and breakfast located in a residential neighborhood between Rainbow Falls and Boiling Pots. Go to Rainbow Falls in the morning! The river that connects the falls runs along the back of the property so you can walk to the edge and hear the water. The property is amazing with many tropical fruit trees! All three...

Our group booked all 3 rooms, each with its own exterior door. We arrived late in the evening and each room had a sign with the occupant's name. The rooms were clean and tastefully decorated. The beds were comfortable and we slept comfortably for both nights. The back yard is beautiful with fruit trees and a stream across the back...

The Old Hawaiian B&B was a perfect home-away-from-home for this traveler for two weeks in March. It was comforting to come back every night to the peaceful and attractive Bamboo Room off the shared lanai. Perhaps even better was waking up the next morning knowing Lory’s home-baked treats were about to be served, along with a large, luscious salad of...
