This was our second time staying at this bed & breakfast, and it was just as fantastic as the first. The property is stunning, the room is beautiful, and has everything you need. We stayed in the Mauna Kea room, and it was extremely clean. We loved all the little added touches the Goode's had in the room such as...

Looking to stay local with the best hosts we could find, Island Goode's delivered and exceeded expectations. From superbly kept facilities, a beautiful old Hawaiian room and views over Hilo Bay, we could not have wished for more. Laura & Garvan go out of their way to make sure all of their guests are treated to real Hawaiian Hospitality. The...

Garvin and Laura (proprietors of the Bed and Breakfast) were the best hosts ever. Our stay at their bed and breakfast was impeccable from the time we arrived to the time we checked out. We stayed in the Hilo Bay Room for two nights. This room was a great choice as it was very spacious and tastefully decorated with an...

Aloha Vicki & Stuart, Thanks for the great review. We are happy that you liked our largest room, “The Mauna Kea Room”. You are correct…the Hotels on this side of the Island do lack luster and B&B’s seem to be the way to go. The lanai for each room is private, but the hammocks are shared. We are a more...

We spent three nights at this B&B. It is a quiet retreat with nice accommodations. The breakfast overflowed with fresh fruits, juice and baked goods. It's location Although quite lovely,it is a bit remote. The hosts were very gracious and accommodating.

I was looking for a nice place to stay in the Hilo area and wasn't impressed with the reviews for most of the local hotels. So, I opted for a B & B and when I came upon the reviews for Island Goode's, I was surprised by the many superlatives I found. Well, I booked a room and after staying...

We stayed in Tower 3 for four nights and absolutely loved it! The room itself was beautifully decorated, very clean and comfortable, and the ocean view was awesome! The Goodes thought of every detail in order to make our stay as pleasant as possible. They were also a great resource for ideas for local restaurants, beaches, and scenic drives. It...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay in the Ginger Room. Garvin and Laura were the perfect hosts.

Great convenient location. Easy to find. Google Maps took us to within 10 feet of the entrance no problem. Wonderful accommodation and delicious breakfast. Really well thought out and executed outdoor spaces. Very comfortable and spacious interior.
