Friendly And accommodating B&B on top of a hill overlooking Hilo Bay. Old style island building. Not fancy but plenty of beautiful landscaping. Reasonable prices. Good breakfast. Recommend the 'legacy suite' room. If you are looking for quiet this is the spot, but you do get a nightly lullaby from frogs that sound like singing birds. Close to old town...

Firstly, this is not a hotel, if you are searching an experience with no personal contacts this is not your place. But if you want to make the most out of your Hawaiian vacations, choose Hilltop Legacy Vacation Rental. This fantastic place has lots of memories with history that worth discovering. And yes, the breakfast is simple but always coming...

It was my second visit to Hilo. My husband and I stayed at the Hilltop Legacy for 2 nights and it was excellent. Jade (staff) was very nice and helpful, made his best to meet my needs. I loved cozy room, clean livingroom and garden and backyard. Free wifi everywhere was really wonderful service. If they had air conditioning, it...

I stayed in the Volcano room which has the designated bathroom just outside of the bedroom. For a single guy this was easy to get used to. If you are healthy, there are plenty of place in Hilo within walking distance. I walked into town and picked up supplies and food at the local market and stored items in the...

We took a trip to the Big Island during spring break. We planned to land in Hilo, visit friends and spend the night in Hilo. After reading the reviews of the hotels in Hilo which seemed to be really sketchy, I contemplated driving to Kona. I took a chance and did a search of B & B's in the Hilo...

We arrived after the normal check- in time and were greeted by Jade. He was very helpful and courteous. The property is a little difficult to find at night, so get directions before hand. We only stayed one night but wish we had stayed longer. The breakfast was simple but delicious. If you will be arriving after 6 pm be...

This is a great hotel. The owners were incredibly helpful and kind. The location is perfect, with a beautiful view of Hilo Bay. I can't recommend this hotel enough.

We visited the Hilltop Legacy in Nov 09 and had a wonderful time there. Even though they renovated the place, Jade and his dad, made it as comfortable as possible for us! When we missed dinner the first night they brought us dessert to the room, what we haven't expected. What a nice gesture! We stayed there over Thanksgiving, and...

We had the Legacy Suite - spacious, ample storage, comfortable, with great view of Hilo Bay and town from room and large lanai. Jade, our host, could not have been more courteous or helpful. The negative reviews I've read here are just a bunch of whining - the place was, in every way, as advertised and then some. I do...
