Easy to find, clean, comfortable, nearby secluded beach so you could hear waves meeting the shore as you drifted off to sleep, easy living in Hilo! Would definitely stay again if I am ever in Hilo again.

We stayed here for 5 days during our time on Big Island. A small and very empty beach is direct 1 minute down the street. The owner is very kind. At the checkout he has shown us the new rooms which are currently being renovated and already now looking great!

My husband and I were on our 10 year anniversary trip to Hawaii. Our first night booked was supposed to be Aaron's Cottage in Hilo, Big Island thru Expedia. The room we had booked was a non-refundable and non-changeable room and actually the last one available. Due to big air travel delays we did not make it to our booked... More

We stayed at Aaron's because we were looking for an economical place to stay in Hilo while we explored the town. I agree with the many positive reviews I have read about Aaron's. The bonus for us was preparing our breakfast which included fresh fruit, bacon, eggs and potatoes. Everything was provided in the community kitchen. The room and kitchen... More

Booked this place because of good reviews. It was by far the worst place we stayed in Hawaii. The non-smoking room stank of cigarette smoke so badly that clothes worn in the room needed to be washed the next day. The laundry as promised on the booking website didn't exist and the breakfast was a fridge that smelled of sour... More

We stayed one night in Hilo and Aaron's Cottage was a great deal. Spacious room, great location near restaurants and beaches, and the most easygoing check-in and check-out process I've experienced. We met the innkeeper in the morning and he was super friendly.
