The property is in a great location, with easy walking distance to downtown Hilo. It is very clean but old. The water pressure in the bathroom was very low. The bed was not comfortable as the mattress was very soft. There are no kitchen facilities (non were advertised) but the provided mini fridge and microwave was very convenient. Note: Check in with Hilltop was straight forward and easy. They provided us with the access code at check in time as is their practice. Unfortunately Expedia had incorrectly informed us we'd be provided with an access code 24 hours prior to check in (not Hilltop's practice). This caused us needless concern when the code wasn't provided. Expedia should ensure they provide accurate information.

These comments need to be taken in context of value. I had a 2-night business stay and just needed a place to sleep and shower. It was very, very affordable. Be sure to ask for Room 1, I think it had the best view and it also had a private balcony. It was a 3-room suite. The grounds were wonderful, lush and well-cared for. The house is obviously an old Hawaiian home, and it has been a while since there were any significant updates (like many decades). The room could have benefited from some paint, the fixtures in the bathroom were a bit dilapidated. The bed was old, a bit bouncy though I slept well. More outlets near the bed would have been helpful (I had to plug my sleeping device in to a 1940s-era plug in the closet). The views overlooking Hilo were wonderful—the harbor, airport and beyond. All contact with the owners was virtual. I didn't opt for daily room service, and so didn't see staff the whole time I was there. Would I stay again? Probably not, but it wasn't an unpleasant experience.

B&B Overlooking Hilo
B&B is setup with the front of house available for guests. Plus, the outside garden area was very nice. Location overlooks Hilo which gives a nice sunrise. Bedroom was clean and neat, but the bed was very small. Maybe a double bed. Host was friendly and helpful.

Peaceful and quiet with an excellent host. I even had a private balcony deck to myself. View was beautiful. An older place, but unique and I loved it.
