We enjoyed the personal service at Arnott's Lodge, the speedy online reservation system and email answers to my numerous questions, as well as all the little extra touches in the room: tablecloths on the kitchen and porch table, beautiful fresh anthurium blooms on the table, tea tree body wash in the shower.... and the whole place was sparking clean!

I was very happy with the stay here: it is just far enough from Hilo to be quiet (you can hear waves crashing at night! :), yet close enough to be convenient. I loved the friendliness of the staff and lack of pretension about the whole place. Many areas to socialize and even bikes to rent! Almost like staying at... More

Great stay in the deluxe suite for a nice price. Very friendly and profesionnal staff. Great tours. Not so conveniend if you don't have a car. 3 miles from Hilo town close to some nice beaches, but not doable by bike or bus.

We stayed 4 nights and loved it. It has a feeling of living like a local because of the neighborhood location and our shared kitchen. Any issues were minor and taken care of quickly in a friendly manner. Their tours are well done also.

We stayed at Arnott's Lodge in November on our self drive tour around The Big Island. We wanted to be near the Volcano National Park, to maximize our time in the park. We are glad that we did as it rained most days, as we were not far away we could tailor our trips to avoid the bad weather. This... More

My wife and I traveled around the Big Island and this was by far the best value for our money. We had a private room and bathroom for $80/night, plus we got a discount for our trip up Mauna Kea with Arnott's. The room itself was a decent size and in good shape. We had access to kitchen space and... More

The location of this hostel/lodge is great in some ways - it's close to a lot of beautiful beaches and parks, but it can be hard to get to the town and other places if you don't have your own car. There's no public transport, so you can bike around or take taxis but it's something to be aware of... More

Arnott's Lodge has a friendly staff and a nice vibe. If you stay here you should a book a tour to Mauna Kea with them, since it's impossible to go up to the summit on your own if you don't have a four-wheel drive vehicle.

Arnott's deluxe room which we booked was very comfortable. It was nice to have our own kitchen for a couple of days, cook some fresh produce from the local area and and relax in some additional space over a standard hotel room. It's a basic fit out, but at the price is certainly good value. The room doesn't have curtains... More
