Decades ago I traveled throughout Africa, staying at places other travelers recommended. These places were usually great, but would never have been popular with tourists expecting a 5-star Ritzy hotel experience. When we arrived at Arnott's Lodge, I was transported back in time and around the world. "This is a place that travelers stay." If you need the amenities of a fancy hotel, find a fancy hotel. If you want a clean and secure place to hang your hat as you travel about, friendly staff, the chance to cross paths with other travelers in the communal areas, all for a more-than-reasonable price, Arnott's Lodge is your place. And if you're a little adventurous, explore some of the coast nearby, accessible down public access paths. Gorgeous and empty. We will certainly be sending friends and family -- those who are travelers, not tourists -- to Arnott's Lodge, especially the younger folks who don't have money to burn and need an affordable option near Hilo. And if you like good photography, check out the pictures by Glory on many of the walls. Bravo!
