I had one of their semi-private rooms with shared kitchen & bathroom for $65.00, located right on the parking lot so had plenty of car noise and the clatter of rolling suitcases. I have sensitivity to scents and found the laundry detergent overwhelming, when I tried to explain this sensitivity was told I was the first to ever complain and... More

We booked a suite, which was extremely spacious, we had large patio, big living room, and full kitchen. It would be a great place to stay if you were staying there for a longer time. The tours were also excellent. We booked the Mauna Kea summit tour, but due to the wind the road to the summit was closed. The... More

Arnotts is an indespensable stay over to me, while I bike tour the Big Island. First, the location is ideal for adventure. And it's unbelievably clean, organized, and you can get stuff you need: info, food, wifi, laundry , etc!! Finally, whether your tenting, on a dorm, or in a room, you get all the amenities included

I had a room in the lodge annex of 6 units - five of which share a kitchen and living room. My room had a private bath, dorm size refrig., and coffee maker. The room was basic, but very adequate for my needs. Wifi worked perfectly. The outside table/chairs on the lawn for each room was a great spot for... More

Easily one of the best maintained, well-run hostels/lodges I've ever stayed in. Excellent value for your money. Far out of town, though. Having a rental car is recommended. A good place if you're travelling solo like I was, although I did find it hard to meet people. Lots of couples, older travellers, etc.

My stay at Arnotts lodge was great. I stayed for 7 night in my tent and in a dorm room and it was perfect. They had everything I needed for tenting including hot showers and shared kitchen privileges included. I met so many amazing people from all over the world and learned so much talking and sharing on the cozy... More

Enjoy staying at this lodge. Very clean and convenient place in Hilo. Friendly staff, great accommodations. We live 70miles away from Hilo and when we have to business in Hilo on the weekends this is always the choice of place to stay to rest for the night before heading home. Rooms have no television or radios.

My boyfriend and I were very impressed with Arnott's. We tented there and found it very comfortable sleeping with the tent over their nice grass. The kitchen and lounge were very comfortable, clean, and full of interesting people. The toilet and showers were also kept clean and they had coin-op washers and dryers that worked well. The wifi worked great... More

Aloha, I do remember your last stay with us and it's disappointing for us to read that you found fault with our hospitality. What I don't understand is that you came back to us assuming that you had a reservation and when we told you that we were booked with our dormitory you became hysterical and you were in tears....

Clean, quiet, spacious, great value. Loved having a spacious, clean kitchen with all the basic amenities to use during our stay. Very kind receptionists. Extremely accommodating of our needs. This place keeps it simple and is a solid, no-frills place to stay. I would definitely return here.
