Quirky is the right word for this property. Apparently built around 1911, the floors are all sloped different directions and the building leans a bit towards the downhill side. Maintenance is a bit lacking. The owner is an artist and carves large wooden figures as well as sandstone wall art. Several pieces are crated up and stored among the lobby and breakfast area. Interesting. Our room was clean, and the sheets smelled clean. No AC, the window out the back was large and well screened, allowing quite the serenade from the night creatures. Especially the frogs. Oh, the door into the bathroom is about 6'1" (I'm 6'2") Breakfast provided was good, coffee, bagels, muffins and fresh fruit.

Mahalo for the review Eugene! I can’t disagree that quirky is the right word. We have some big plans for this place and would love to have you again!

This property has old world charm. The hosts are personable, gracious, and kind. The breakfast was first class and delicious, fresh and the coffee outstanding. A FANTASTIC hidden gem. The dinning porch is nicely perched for stunning views of the garden and snips of ocean blue & capturing the ocean breezes.

This is a CLASSIC old style Hawaiian hotel! I grew up on Oahu and this is the genuine, non-luxury, home style place…fantastic owners and wonderful breakfast of fresh fruit croissants and bagels! A must stay if wanting a trip back in time. Manila nui loa

Mahalo Karen for the thoughtful and warm review!

5 out of 5
I loved the casual atmosphere of the place. The lobby itself was just a fabulous place to stand in. Very open and refreshing and Hawaiian. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. I enjoyed interacting with other guests in the lobby during breakfast. The location of the hotel I found to be wonderful. It’s at the quiet end of Hilo and the walk downtown is lovely, you passed by a beautiful river that flows into the ocean. The views are beautiful and the grounds of the building are great. The building is obviously under renovation and it is very rustic but that is kind of my style so I really enjoyed it. One last thing is that I found the communication between myself and the owner to be very friendly before I checked in. Incredibly upbeat vibe of that place.
