My husband and I were on our 10 year anniversary trip to Hawaii. Our first night booked was supposed to be Aaron's Cottage in Hilo, Big Island thru Expedia. The room we had booked was a non-refundable and non-changeable room and actually the last one available. Due to big air travel delays we did not make it to our booked...

We stayed at Aaron's because we were looking for an economical place to stay in Hilo while we explored the town. I agree with the many positive reviews I have read about Aaron's. The bonus for us was preparing our breakfast which included fresh fruit, bacon, eggs and potatoes. Everything was provided in the community kitchen. The room and kitchen...

We stayed here for 2 days and really enjoyed it. It was very easy to find and only minutes from the airport. Alan was very nice and super informative about the area. Our room was spacious and clean with a very good air conditioner (we stayed in room 9). We had free wifi and the kitchen was right off the...

Booked this place because of good reviews. It was by far the worst place we stayed in Hawaii. The non-smoking room stank of cigarette smoke so badly that clothes worn in the room needed to be washed the next day. The laundry as promised on the booking website didn't exist and the breakfast was a fridge that smelled of sour...

We stayed one night in Hilo and Aaron's Cottage was a great deal. Spacious room, great location near restaurants and beaches, and the most easygoing check-in and check-out process I've experienced. We met the innkeeper in the morning and he was super friendly.

I stayed at Arron's Cottage for 2 nights, Arron and Pennie were very nice, there were free fruit provided at pantry. I loved the breakfast for the 1st day as there was Pennie's homemade cookie which is so delicous. The location was closed to a public access rocky beach that you could enjoy sunset (from 7:00 am - 7:00 pm)....

This place is great! My husband was not feeling well and Allen and his wife let us check in a few hours early to accommodate. There is a really short walk to a private beach and it is convenient to everything, especially all the volcanic beaches with tide pools and turtles. I hardly ever leave reviews and yet here I...

5 star hospitality provided by innkeepers Allan and Penny! I have never been in friendlier facility. Every morning fresh fruits for a breakfast, eggs from own garden and cereals was something what we really didn't expected :) Allan is really helpful with everything! Thank you once again for an amazing stay and hope to see you soon!
