While is Kisumu is not a major tourist destination, it is a regional hub of commerce and an interesting destination in and of itself. There are just enough transport, hotel & restaurant options to make visting a pleasure for business or leisure.
Kisumu is not a city for walking, so the dirt road access to Kiboko Bay is offset by the fact that you will need a taxi or car anyway to get to most destinations.
The accomodations are both comfortable and memorable, but the friendly and accomodating staff are the primary reason to stay at Kiboko Bay (example: daily laundry service is included, so it is OK to pack light for your visit).
