I was looking for a nice place to stay in the Hilo area and wasn't impressed with the reviews for most of the local hotels. So, I opted for a B & B and when I came upon the reviews for Island Goode's, I was surprised by the many superlatives I found. Well, I booked a room and after staying... More

We stayed in Tower 3 for four nights and absolutely loved it! The room itself was beautifully decorated, very clean and comfortable, and the ocean view was awesome! The Goodes thought of every detail in order to make our stay as pleasant as possible. They were also a great resource for ideas for local restaurants, beaches, and scenic drives. It... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay in the Ginger Room. Garvin and Laura were the perfect hosts. Laura greeted us when we arrived and gave us all the information we needed about our room and the area. The room and the grounds of the B&B were clean and well kept. The homemade breakfast was delicious! Our... More

Great convenient location. Easy to find. Google Maps took us to within 10 feet of the entrance no problem. Wonderful accommodation and delicious breakfast. Really well thought out and executed outdoor spaces. Very comfortable and spacious interior. The homemade breakfast with fresh baked muffins, scones and local fresh fruit were amazing and worth every penny. You could not go away... More

We stayed here for three nights (6/4/16-6/7/16) and we would not hesitate to stay here again. Clean well furnished room with a comfortable sleep number bed. Delicious breakfast and the friendly easygoing owners made us feel welcome. The owners are very detailed oriented, for example providing umbrellas if needed, explaining all the varied fruits served with breakfast etc. This place... More

An amazing and comfortable room, so thoughtfully equipped. Has everything you never knew you needed whilst on holiday. Excellent advice on how to see/what to do on the island meant that I maximised my 3 and a half days here. Perfectly placed for exploring the waterfalls around Hilo. Easy to get to nearby black sand beaches, and access to the... More

My husband and I spent 2 very relaxing days at this B& B. We are novices at this type of lodging, and oh my, Island Goode has set a high bar!! We used the hot tub, the sleep number bed, the available literature and history for Hilo; the owners were more than friendly and helpful, and we would LOVE to... More

We stayed for (2) nites in the Mauna Kea room in early March and all I can say is "what a fabulous stay". We arrived early enough in the day to meet with Laura and Garvin and to have them show us our room and the grounds. We loved their B&B. From the Lanai, you can see Hilo and the... More

Stayed at Island Goode's B&B for 3 nights last week and found the location to be convenient to downtown Hilo, the airport, and driving up the scenic road north of the B&B.
