We travel a lot and frequently stay at B&Bs because they are usually charming and offer wonderful insights into the community. We were very disappointed with Pillows in Paradise. It was more like rent a room/daily rates than a Bed and Breakfast. We were booked for three nights and left after two.
While our Lanikai room was clean and spacious, the air conditioner hissed and clanked all night. Access to the room was from street parking through two small gates that made moving suitcases difficult. No information such as local restaurant menus or written directions to places of interest was provided.
Barbara greeted us graciously, and we never saw her again. We had the option of calling her cell phone. The website says a complimentary welcome breakfast basket will be provided for the first morning. It was fruit and a coffee cake from the grocery bakery. Breakfast was up to us for the remainder of our stay- not my idea of a Bed and Breakfast. A note on the table said there would be an additional $35 charge if we did not wash our own dishes.
There was a decided lack of hospitality at Pillows in Paradise, which did not match our expectations.
