My fiancee and I are arriving at Hilo this Friday on a late night flight via ATA (arrives past 11pm). We plan on leaving for the Volcano the next day.
We just made reservations with the car company and found out that the car rental office is already closed at that time, so we have no other option but to pick it up in the morning.
I checked the airport's site and found out that only Arnott's Lodge and Hotel Naniloa have shuttles (although both won't pick-up past 10pm). I surfed this forum and the reviews from readres and both hotels got bad reviews, to put it mildly.
I am guessing it would be a pain to book/find a cab the next day to go to the airport to pick-up the car, so any input in deciding between Arnott's and Hotel Naniloa would be much appreciated.
Of course any other better options are much welcome too.
Thank you very much!
