Aloha and thanks for the extensive review. I'm glad you finally stayed at Arnott's as you obviously appreciated the area we are in. As you said you had lived in Hilo your comment passing through the industrial area seems strange as all over the world...More

Nicely renovated semi private facalities. Great shared kitchen. Very clean and well kept. Only 45mins from the volcanoes and 10mins into Hilo. The staff were also very friendly and was nice to help celebrate Arnotts 26th Birthday.

Really great location in Hawaii Big Island. We stayed at Arnott's Lodge as backpackers on their Campsite. The kitchens and "bathrooms" were clean, only that there could be more silverware in the kitchens. In the big loungearea you can hang around and have great chats...More

Yes, you would need to fly from Hilo to Honolulu or Kona to Honolulu for your flight to Australia. We have 2 airports on the Big Island. The airport closer to us Hilo. Hope this helps.
