Historical Traveler Reviews The Old Hawaiian B&B Hilo
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
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!
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!
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!
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.
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..
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!
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'
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!

Each line gets a little longer and higher. The fourth line gave us our first taste of what was to come as it took us over a small ravine, where we practiced how to steer (you turn your body by turning the hand that holds the carabiner). It was very hard to take pictures as you're zipping along so I eventually gave up trying.
