Arnotts was a great find for us in Hilo. We rented 2 deluxe rooms that were a bargain price and within walking distance of the water. There was a great little patio out the sliding door where we could hang out and relax, and the kitchen was a welcome surprise. We packaged the room with a tour of Mauna Kea...

Arnott's Lodge Deluxe Rooms were nicer than other hotels we stayed in with a shared kitchen, complete with pots, pans and dishes, where we were able to not only save money, but eat healthy on our trip.

We had stayed at Arnott's Lodge 15 or more years ago, and we enjoyed it as much this time as that previous visit. It is well set up for crossing paths with other travelers, taking advantage of the tours that they offer, or merely walking to the beautiful nearby coastal spots. The staff is very welcoming and also a great...

Pleasant communal areas including wicker furniture, tables, fast Wifi, washers and dryers, kitchen with stovetop and fridge.
