Sweetest people, great coffee and banana bread. Felt like old Hawaii instead of cookie cutter, could be anywhere kind of place. Loved the lanai and screens.

Friendly staff, spotless, great location

This is the perfect place to base from when exploring the Hilo side. Truly lovely staff who treat you like family (assuming you have enjoyable family!) They will tell you all things local, make good suggestions, tell you where to pick your own starfruit off their tree, and generally make you feel like you have a friendly home away from home. Kitchenettes have all you can need for vacation. Very clean room, comfortable beds, near downtown. Yes, "dated" as other reviews mention, and in a charming way. Will definitely stay here again.
