      Historical Traveler Reviews The Old Hawaiian B&B Hilo

      Great Hospitality

      from

      Lory was a wonderful hostess taking the time to visit and give travel advise on the sights around Hilo. The Sunrise and Hawaiian rooms were booked so we stayed in the Bamboo room. A comfortable and clean room but suffering a bit from the Hilo mildew. If you stay, we would suggest the other two rooms.

      Best place for breakfast in Hilo

      from

      I stayed at Sunrise room (1 day) and Hawaiian room (2 day) from Sep 20 thru Sep 23. Both the rooms turned out nice. The room are very nice and clean, neatly decorated,with large windows for roomy ventilation. The place is too quiet so get a book to read. I am already missing getting up to the sweet bird chirping in the morning. The backyard garden is very nice with lots of fruit trees and flowers.

      Though the hallmark of my stay was Lory's breakfast. They are unbeatable. It consisted of smoothies, juices, coffee/tea, tropical fruits, breads/scones/muffins. Each day was a different treat. The place is a great value considering the dumps I researched for staying in Hilo. The place is 2 miles from Boiling pots and rainbow falls. The volcano national park is 28 miles away. The Akaka falls is 10 miles away. Lory is very knowledgable about the places to see/visit in Big Island.

      Fabulous place to stay!

      What a wonderful place! Finding anything with a good review in Hilo was hard so we definitely had reservations about staying there. Room was large, clean, and very nicely decorated. Very roomy bath and the best part was the homemade breakfast on the outdoor lanai. Even the grounds are lovely! Our host, Lory, was great! Do yourself a favor and stay here!

      Great Value!

      from

      We had a lovely stay at the Old Hawaiian in July. We were in the Sunrise and Bamboo Rooms. Of the two, we would recommend the Sunrise which has great windows. The other room was quite hot and didn't have very good ventilation.

      Lori got up very early in order to accomodate our flight schedule, and her breakfast was delicious! We particularly liked her sweet rolls!

      The rooms were affordably priced, and the neighborhood is very quiet and convenient to many attractions.

      We will definitely stay at the Old Hawaiian again when we are in Hilo!

      DEFINATELY SHOULD HAVE STAYED LONGER!

      from

      We only stayed for one night in the Hawaiian room before heading to Volcano National Park. Like the previous reviewer had described, the room was very comfortable, clean, and spacious, with a huge bed and nice clean sunken bathtub. After not having a home cooked meal for a while, we were eager to have Lori's amazing breakfast, which everyone in the guest book had raved on about and it did not disappoint!!! We woke up to find breakfast beautifully prepared on the lanai outside (Lori wakes up an hour prior to prepare breakfast are you sure it was an hour?). We had freshly squeezed juice, a smoothie, serving of fresh tropical fruit salad and home baked bread (there were 2 types and it was served straight from the oven). It was SOOOO good! We only wished that every place we stayed in were like this! Well worth what we paid for and then some.

      We wish we could have stayed longer!

      from

      We loved our stay at the Old Hawaiian B&B. It's a beautiful house in the tucked in a Hilo neighborhood, in a great location. Stuart and Lori were both very welcoming and helpful--they gave great tips on restaurants, beaches, activities, etc. The breakfasts were also delicious--Lori is a phenomenal baker! The living quarters (We stayed in the Hawaiian room) were spacious, very nicely decorated, and clean, with many "little touches" that make their guests comfortable. The bathroom was luxurious (and huge!), with a sunken tub and a shower. We loved our stay there--we were very sad to leave. Even other places that we visited later that were more expensive didn't really measure up. We highly recommend it!

      Thoughtful and knowledgeable hosts.

      from

      We arranged our stay with little notice and they were very accomodating. Having lived in Hawai'i for years they are very well informed about the islands. The room was spacious even fo 2 adults and 2 teens. The home-made bread is incredible, the coffee fresh, the smiles genuine. And the dog is a sweetheart.

      Lovely place with grat value..

      from

      We found a very welcoming atmosphere and a great room ("Hawaiian") with even candles next to the bathtub! Breakfast was arranged beautifully on the outside patio and there's also a cute friendly dog.

      Best of our trip!

      from

      We stayed in 6 hotels in 4 islands in Hawaii. For this one we stayed at in "The Hawaiian Room". It was one of the best vlaues on the trip. The room was perfect with a beautiful bathroom. The breakfast were very good too....most B&B's dont even serve breakfast anymore!

      For a great place to relax, you can't beat the 'Old Hawaiian B&B'

      from

      The true meaning of heaven is to wake up in the Hawaiian room, the red cardinals cooing outside the window and the light fragrance of the flowers of Hawaii drifting in the window. It is so peaceful, the only thing that will entice you to get out of bed is knowing breakfast is soon to be served. The fresh fruit and home baked breads is a wonderful way to start the day. Wonderful getaway!

      We were met by our favorite Tours by Locals’ guide, Scott Wiggers. He had planned a day of waterfalls for us, but the weather had other plans. We

      Took the scenic drive up to Akaka Falls State Park for a look at the 442-foot free fall waterfall. This is the highest waterfall on the island. The path is paved but with the rain, the steps were slippery so Bruce observed from the ...

      When Lyn and I went on holiday after the last IBCF Regatta in Petersborough, Canada we drove from Philly to Miami. Our rental car had Australian flags on it and we have put some more on our current rental. The flags are great - we don't lose the car, people wave and hoot at lights (friendly like) and best of all other drivers give us leeway. They see we are foreign, on holiday (who else has flags waving), and are aware we ...

Margaret will be there with her game face on, which in this case is a great big, sweet smile that says to her fans "I'm having so much fun!" But those of us who know her well know that there is an "I will dance you into the dust" behind that smile. Did I mention that I was proud? Perhaps not. I'm so proud of her! ...

      Should I tell you how nervous I was? I did enjoy it. Our pilot was Pete, who is a retired Marine pilot. He's been flying for over 15 years. I sat down in my seat, put on my headset, and the assistant buckled me in. "Don’t Worry" by Bob Marley was playing in my headset. We flew over an active lava flow which was pretty amazing. I could feel the heat from 500+ feet above and smell the sulfur. We flew over lava fields, the ...

I can't imagine hiking 6 miles on this stuff. Most of the area the wind is so strong it's like driving along the highway with your windows open.

      We wound our way down the road with amazing coastal views. As we cruised along it felt like we were going to go careening over a cliff. When we finally made ...
