We spent a week here while immersing ourselves in the Hilo atea. Loved Arnotts. We stayed in the deluxe suite - perfect set up for my husband and me. A home away from home. With coffee for my hubby each morn. Kitchen and refrigerator for making breakfasts lunches and snacks. The staff were all super friendly and helpful. We rented... More

After traveling to Hilo for outpatient surgery, my husband and I spent the night at Arnott's with the hope of finding a quiet, peaceful place to recover. We experienced just that! It couldn't have been more perfect for our needs: a small, quiet room with a secluded entrance (we stayed in room 1) and a small kitchenette so that my... More

Arnott's Lodge is a really nice place to stay. It's off the beaten track so it is quiet. We stayed in a delux suite and it was perfect with a kitchenette to boot. The staff were really friendly too. The only thing I would say about it is that you need a car as it is far away from amenities.

We only stayed one night at Arnott's but it was a very nice experience, wish we could have stayed longer. We were in town for one night to go visit the happenings at the volcano, and stayed in a Queen Deluxe room. It was spacious and clean, with a small patio outside. The room had a coffeemaker and refrigerator, and... More

I loved this place and the environment. Miranda and Sarah at the front desk were so helpful! I stayed there for 7 days and had a great time. It is a short walk from the beach and has a great sitting area for fellow travelers to talk and meet each other.

Arnotts Lodge is a nice clean hostel. The staff is friendly & courteous. Enjoyed Hilo. Also enjoyed the guided tour up Mauna Kea. The shuttle driver/guide was informative about the Mountain & the history, as well as the array of telescopes. She also had a good sense of humor & is a good driver. Sorry I don't remember her name.... More
