Hotel convenient to JRO airport (Kilimanjaro)?

I am starting to put together itinerary options for 13 days & nights in Tanzania. We will be flying into & out of JRO airport. Our flight will arrive in JRO airport at 9:30 pm. Recommendations for where to stay for just that first night, someplace relatively convenient to the airport? I notice that most pre-set itineraries starting in JRO have accommodations in Arusha for the first night. Is that the best option or is there a hotel or lodge nearer to JRO airport that anyone can recommend?

The Kia Lodge next to the airport is closest and very nice. They have a free shuttle (4 minutes drive)!

Most passengers from that KLM flight head for Arusha (an hour away) since it is a good starting point for safaris the next day (most safaris start at 8am). You save an hour and the operators don't have to waste another hour driving out to the airport to meet you!

Options a plenty in/around Arusha. Best place on the west of Arusha is the Sopa Coffee Lodge but there are many others in or east including Impala, Rivertrees, New Arusha, Mount Meru Game Lodge, Serena Mountain Village, and so on.

What is your budget?
