If you want a cheap place, which is a bit tired in its upkeep, with an ok breakfast, and are traveling with a dog (they allow them) it will work for you. Just don't expect a resort or a high quality B&B (have friends who run one on Maui). It is an interesting trio of rooms. Easily found in a... More

From the moment we arrived, we felt like we were being well taken care of. Alan and Penne provided us with some nice extras that we were not expecting. The room itself was clean and comfortable. The common areas were not as clean, but it wasn't disgusting. There was free internet and cable TV, although some of the TV channels... More

My husband and I stayed here one night before our flight out of Hawaii. The room is nothing super special, but it works... clean, good value, all the stuff you need like shampoo, hair dryer, TV, A/C, etc. Plus it's $70/night in Hawaii so that's a steal! They provided a kitchen and continental style breakfast. The highlights were the owner,... More

This bed and breakfast was near the ocean, beach just a few houses away and less than a mile off the main road. The room was clean, large comfy queen size bed, table and chairs, coffee maker, frig, big bathroom with soft towels. The owners welcomed us as we arrived and explained how breakfast was served and gave us a... More

Room service never provided during 1 wk. stay. Did allow us to get a new set of towels. Kitchen availability saved money but cobwebs in the corners, toaster oven disgusting, and toaster marginal. Outside each room was a table with 2 chairs on a common walkway. Tables were filthy. We used a bath towel each time we ate there. Dogs... More

We had a great stay at Aaron's Cottage. It was informal and very comfortable which is our style. Alan is very friendly and most helpful. Penne can create the most wonderful breakfast surprises. We liked and appreciated the communal kitchen which could be accessed at all times. There was also a BBQ available for cooking if you caught a fish... More

Aloha spirit and Ohana feeling are the prime draws to Aarons Cottage. The owners live it everyday. The new blinds are a welcome addition to this location. I stay here everytime we visit the Big Island. Penne and Alan (the owners) are wonderful people. Give them a try - it isn't the Hilton or the Ritz, but you won't be... More

Aaron's cottage is very easy to find and is about 10 min drive from downtown Hilo. Although close to the Hilo International airport we could not hear the planes. The room (#7) was spacious with queen size bed, lots of space and a nice bathroom/toilet. Clean towels and shower gel was provided. There is a bit of wear and tear... More

More like a hotel room, with AC (not necessary when we were there) and TV. Shared kitchen with a different fruit and baked item or fried rice each morning, plus eggs, cereal, and milk. Convenient location to Hilo with easy access to outlying attractions.

We decided to try a B&B for Hilo and the location and price for Aaron's Cottage proved to be a great find. Airport nearby was not a bother. We had stayed for 2 days of which most time was spent out exploring the numerous sights around Hilo such as Volcanoes National Park and Akaka Falls. The owners, Penne and Alan,... More
