First of all don't spring for the jacuzzi because you want a nice couple's bath - its Japanese style so its meant for sitting up right in and only one person can fit. If you want a private bath then its worth getting the room - but not for a large tub.
If you decide to stay - then I wouldn't recommend breakfast. Its not very good or filling and takes too long. If you like chatting with the guests and the owner then go ahead but I thought it was mostly a waste of time.
Price wise this is a lot cheaper then the hotels in the area. In terms of price I think its a decent deal and I'm not terribly unhappy about that.
What I did like is the location. Its quite - yes there are frogs at night on this part of the Island but I thought it was quaint as I live in a busy city. The area is very lush - lots of really beautiful trees and bushes. If you want to be near Hilo and Volcano Park then this is a great location. Its not terribly hard to find the B&B even though its not on a major road.
I liked our room but was very surprised that the bed wasn't made up during out 3 day stay nor were the towels changed either.
Had the hostess been nicer, the brunch either laid out buffet style or served promptly and with more substance than I would have given a higher ranking.
Also I would encourage my friends to look at some of the rentals in Volcano village. Volcano village has nice resturants (better than I expected) and still isn't very far from the beach or Hilo.
