We stayed in the Hawaiian Room. It's a B&B, so here's the breakdown: The bed(room) - Spacious. Comfortable. Bathroom had a tub and shower stall, everything worked. Bed was large and satisfactory. There was also a small daybed. My only caveat for people looking at this place is know that there is not A/C. I think a tower fan would...

The Old Hawaiian B&B experience was one unexpected. A beautiful home on a manicured property full of all types of fruit trees in the back yard which met the flow of Peepee Falls. The owner, Lory, prepared a delicious healthy homemade breakfast which was out of this world. We only wish we had booked a couple of more nights. It...

We had a wonderful time at The Old Hawaiian. Lory (the inn-keeper) is extremely kind and helpful, and serves the best breakfast in Hilo. Her baked goods and fruit selection was excellent every morning. The backyard is beautiful, lush with exotic greenery, and it was so nice to wake up in a quiet, residential area. I would highly recommend The...

We had a very pleasant surprise arriving at The Old Hawaiian B & B. Private entrance to suite and nice patio to relax on and enjoy a cup of tea. Reasonable price and Lory makes a yummy breakfast. One day we had an early start and a packed breakfast is provided.

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...
