My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of June during our recent tour around Hawaii and thought it was great. We stayed in the middle unit (i.e. neighbours on both sides), but never particularly found noise problematic. The room was a good size, with a very comfortable bed and a good shower in the bathroom. While the room isn’t fancy, it was practical and clean. Alan, the owner, was very friendly and helpful and encouraged us to eat as much of the breakfast supplies as we could! There was a good selection in the shared kitchen, including fruit and fresh baked goods, which were delicious.
We found the location great for trips up to Mouna Kea (about an hour’s drive each way) and the Volcano National Park (about 45 mins each way, maybe a bit less). There were various convenience stores and a few restaurants nearby, with our favourite being Ken’s pancake house, which was just up the road serving delicious omelettes and French toast (and everything else we saw served looked really good too!).
Above all, Aarons was excellent value. So as long as you’re not looking for glitzy resorts or fancy features, you’ll likely not find better than this for the money anywhere in Hawaii.
