Near the sea (a natural pool) so we can bath and hear the sea at night ! We have breakfast every morning in the garden with birds and mangust. When raining, we stayed under the lanai. The room was large et comfortable. Others guests were respectful and really quiet.

Stayed in Arnott's Lodge for 2 nights: first night, and last night of a week long stay in Big Island. The place we had was basic but was very complete and could not complain. We booked 2 nights here since they gave discounts on their tour for staying 2 nights. The people that worked there that we encountered were very... More

This was convenient to the airport, affordable, clean I had lots of room to myself. Bathroom and shower were well kept. It's in a quiet neighborhood. Of course, close to the beach. A good night's rest. Grateful to have a low cost option. Everyone was friendly, too.

really enjoyed our short stay. had a vibe like an Australian backpackers hotel, which I really enjoyed. Its not fancy, But if you are a traveler you will appreciate the amenities. Its also less than a block away from the ocean, where there was good snorkeling and sea turtles. We'll be back. thanks!

For deluxe rooms, they have a shared kitchen for a few rooms. They also have washer and dryer onsite. They are also closer to down town and the beaches - Oneokahaka, Carlsmith (You can catch a few turtles on the shores here) and the Richardson black sand beach. They also have scheduled tours and offer a discount for guests. This... More

We had a good time at Arnott's lodge and will return there our next trip to the big island. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about things to do in the area. We enjoyed the welcome home feel of meeting others in the community spaces.

It was a brilliant find. The staff are super friendly, local and really knowledgeable of local areas for swimming, snorkelling and places to eat. Did two of their adventure trips which were excellent. Sean was outstanding on the sunset trip. highly recommend doing this trip through them.

It's close to Hilo, inexpensive rental car company (Harpers), and the beach. The staff is helpful and pleasant. The rooms, private and shared (kitchen and bathroom) are clean. The kitchen has all supplies (dishes, pans, utensils) for cooking, cleaning and eating meals. Bikes are available for rental. The main road to Hilo is through industrial area. My only complaint is...

Staying in this hotel was one of the highlites of our trip. Our hosts were most delightful, full of interesting history, as well being welcoming and wonderful to be with. The hotel is an historical building that has kept it's character. It is clean and comfortable, as well as secure. The proximity to Wiapo Valley and the small town is... More

This was the perfect choice for our large group of 11 people. Arnott's staff was always accommodating from the moment I called to set up our reservation to the moment we left. Facilities were clean and had everything a conscious traveler could want. Perfect location on the Big Island for getting to all the fun stuff.
