I only stayed one night but I really fell in love with this place. It's clean, quiet and tucked away from the busyness of Hilo town and close to really jaw dropping beaches. You can commute to Hilo by taxi or bus or their shuttle. I did not have a pleasant experience with the taxi as the guy charged me...

We stayed here for 2 nights after moving on from VNP and our main aim was to do Mauna Kea and the hostel offered this tour. Our room was room 3 and deluxe in that we had our own bathroom. This unit shares a kitchen with about 5 other rooms and is a few seconds walk from the main building....

Aloha to our friends from the UK!! Thanks for your review. We do our best in a tropical environment to keep bugs at bay with frequent changing of bait stations etc. As to the stargazing telescopes on Mauna Kea, commercial tour operators are actually not permitted to have their guests use the telescopes at the visitor's center due to routine...

This was our return trip to Arnott's Lodge. I traveled with a small group of high school students to the big island. The lodge not only provides a great value, but also great hospitality. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Doug, Glory and the staff are super helpful and very friendly. They have a superb knowledge of Hilo and the...

A good budget place in a quiet residential area. A beach park is right next door. The Wifi worked well in my room and in the lounge area. Front desk staff was helpful. The nearest restaurants are a drive away.

Aloha to our friends from Honolulu. Mahalo for your positive review and choosing Arnott's Lodge for your stay in Hilo. Coqui frogs, ocean waves and birds chirping is what you can hear when you choose to stay at Arnott's Lodge but most of all quietness. We enforce our quiet hours every night with all of our guests. Walk to the...

For starters I'd like to mention the closeness of the beach, that was a win. The assistants at the front desk are super friendly and will assist you with anything. The couches and tables provided outside simply let you relax, and the small room they have to watch tv and chill. I liked how each day simply toiletries were updated....

Aloha! Mahalo for your great review! We love that you appreciate our location! We are fortunate to be within easy walking distance of several lovely little beaches, and we are far enough out of town to avoid most of the noise. Most guests are serenaded to sleep by the song of the coqui frogs at night. We always do our...

“We stayed in room #4; upstairs (No elevator) in the back. Loved the room.”

“The suite in which we had a semi-private room had tile floor throughout so sound travelled very efficiently. If there had been others staying in the suite I probably would have used earplugs just in case others were up and about when I was sleeping, but they weren't necessary when it was only us. The bed was a bit soft, but in good condition.”
