We actually took advantage of the tent camping option on the lawn and I was blown away by the state and amount of accommodations. Washers, dryers, hot showers, full kitchen, gorgeous clean out door living areas, Tv rooms, internet, and really kind and gracious service. All for 16 (i think) dollars!! Unheard of. This was a very enjoyable luxury for...

We stayed in a family room which had ample room and provided everything we needed. The accommodation is basic but the service and hospitality could not be faulted. The staff were incredibly friendly and very helpful. There is a great beach a few hundred metres down the road which the kids loved and Carlsmith Beach is nearby which we really...

We did a tour to Mauna Kea with Arnott's and stayed at this place too. It was a very good deal, because you will receive a discount of $35/person for this trip if you stay at Arnott's for at least one night. We were very pleased with both the tour and our stay. Our tour to Mauna Kea was wonderful....

Arnotts was a great find for us in Hilo. We rented 2 deluxe rooms that were a bargain price and within walking distance of the water. There was a great little patio out the sliding door where we could hang out and relax, and the kitchen was a welcome surprise. We packaged the room with a tour of Mauna Kea...

Arnott's Lodge Deluxe Rooms were nicer than other hotels we stayed in with a shared kitchen, complete with pots, pans and dishes, where we were able to not only save money, but eat healthy on our trip. Despite being advertised as "no frills" the Deluxe Lodge was neat and clean. Perhaps an added benefit was meeting other couples and families...

We had stayed at Arnott's Lodge 15 or more years ago, and we enjoyed it as much this time as that previous visit. It is well set up for crossing paths with other travelers, taking advantage of the tours that they offer, or merely walking to the beautiful nearby coastal spots. The staff is very welcoming and also a great...

“We stayed in room #4; upstairs (No elevator) in the back. Loved the room.”

“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.”
