We were camping on the Island and Arnotts provided a great location for our tent within a short walking distance to 2 nice beaches. We have access to showers, laundry, lounge area and internet. Definitely worth while.

We stayed 3 nights at Arnott's Lodge whilst in Hilo. Ideal location if you have a car and want access to shops/cafes/restaurants... but you can easily walk to the beaches as they are near by. We stayed in a deluxe suit and it was perfect. Clean and with all the amenities we needed. The laundry facilities on site allowed up...

My gf & I did the Mauna Kea Stargazing tour with Lauren. She is the best! And she picks you up at your hotel! That is perfect, so you can sleep in the van. Lauren is very knowledgeable of Native Hawaiian culture & history and of the stars. She is also very laid back and does not rush you. Everyone...

I have to admit, I originally didn't have high expectations of Arnott's Lodge. I had booked it because I had booked their Mauna Kea tour with them and didn't want to have to make the trek back to the AirBnB I was staying at the nights prior after the tour was finished. I was pleasantly surprised when I checked in....

Mahalo nui for taking the time to leave us not one, but two reviews (our Mauna Kea adventure as well)! Thank you so much for choosing Arnott's Lodge & Hiking Adventures! The "No-Frills" lodging is definitely not something everyone expects when coming to visit Hawai'i, however it is great to have guests that would rather go out and explore and...

I came in late on feb 28th 2017 after my plane landed at 21h. The staff was really helpful and waited for me to check in before closing time.

Mahalo nui for your beautiful review! While we do have a 3:00pm check-in time, we always aim to have the rooms clean and ready before that time. It is always worth it to check to see if the room is ready, because sometimes there may not have been anyone else in the room anyway, and you could easily go in...

We stayed in a semi- private room for several days and did the Mauna Kea stargazing tour. The room was very clean and comfortable with a large shared (accessible) bathroom. It was a great set up to buy a few groceries and cook meals as a mini fridge and a kitchen with cooking gear were available. Walking distance to two...

We stayed for 2 nights in the deluxe suite and were very pleased. Everything in town was easily accessible and accommodations were in great shape, especially for the price. We would definitely stay again sometime.

My only complaint is that the bed was VERY firm. I had my thermarest along so that solved the issue. Very neat, clean, laid back, and friendly atmosphere! The neighborhood is a best kept secret of Hilo. Neat beach parks nearby

Arnott's lodge was clean, comfortable and quiet, and a short walk from the lovely beach parks. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Went on the Mauna Kea sunset tour and made it to the summit. Our guide, Sean, was excellent and gave a wonderful star gazing presentation.

“Spring for the private rooms if you can. They do have hostel type rooms for less money as well.”

“The suite in which we had a semi-private room had tile floor throughout so sound travelled very efficiently. If there had been others staying in the suite I probably would have used earplugs just in case others were up and about when I was sleeping, but they weren't necessary when it was only us. The bed was a bit soft, but in good condition.”
