We stayed overnight and had the best breakfast in the morning. Mathew was a charming host and prepared the best cinnamon coconut bread we have ever had. The porch was nice and it was fun to visit with fellow travelers during breakfast.

We loved the Michener room at Hilo Bay Hale, it was perfect, and had a great lanai from which you could feed the koi! The coffee was strong, the breakfast tasty, and the staff (we met Carolina and Matthew) were delightful, friendly, and super helpful. The house is old and quaint but very clean and well kept. Look for the geckos on the lanai in the morning. We'd love to visit again!

Room Tip: Get one with your own lanai!

You are going to love staying in this charming B&B near Hilo Bay and historic downtown. The owners go out of their way to help you feel right at home and comfortable between your daily adventures. We spent 3 nights here after spending 5 in Kona. Wish we would have allocated more time to Hilo as there's plenty to do, all within a reasonable distance from Hilo Bay Hale. The place is tidy and clean. The breakfast amazing! The day we left we were already planning our return.

The building is historic and full of charm.
It is beautifully maintained.
You can feel the love that Matthew and Dan have put into upgrading this piece of history
My room was comfortable with nice airflow. It was centrally located in Hilo .


Thank you so much for a lovely visit

Room Tip: From what the other guests said all of the rooms are great

This lovely old house close to the town centre is evocative of old Hawai’i, with the (rather loud) birds and frogs around the pond below the veranda and the mandatory ceiling fan. Book into the James Michener room and spend a lazy day (ha ha) reading one of the copies of “Hawaii” provided.
