Stayed here on a Saturday in November. Fantastic view during both during the day and night. Nice cozy place with a "lodge" feeling to it. Nice touch with the fireplace burning. It was needed as it was rather cool at night. The heater in the room was appreciated. Rooms aren't fancy but were comfortable. Bed was more comfortable than the... More

This hotel is adorable. The rooms are small and basic, but cosy and perfectly adequate. My parents had a 'volcano view' room, but the trees were overgrown and they couldn't really see it. We had a view of the car park, but we hardly spent any time in the room. The hotel's main areas are well laid out and feel... More

This was a really great experience for us. We are huge nerds, so it was a huge surprise that we could not only spend a night with a volcano just off in the distance, but then get a really deep dive into the science of it with someone who studies the same volcano professionally. The rest of the stay was... More

When visiting a national park it is always a plus to be able to stay in the park. Volcanoes National Park is no exception. Being able to observe the caldera of the volcano at different times of the day and night makes for a truly unforgettable experience. That is why I would recommend at least one night at Volcano House.... More

I wasn't sure what to expect inside a national park but didn't expect it to be as nice as it was. I'm not a rustic person. The room was very nicely done with a view of the volcano. I didn't expect the volcano to be so big and I had a what was I thinking moment on arrival. It turned... More

I stayed at the Volcano House in Oct and I have to say it was charming and a fabulous experience. My room was on the 1st floor and had a great view of the Kilauea caldera. I only ate breakfast in the dining room but it was a reasonably priced buffet with a nice variety of offerings. The staff were... More

The hotel is in a unique location on the edge of the crater rim so you can look out over the crater and see the steam rising during the day or the reflected glow at night (if the weather is clear). As mentioned in many other reviews and their website the building is old so does lack some modern features,... More

For the price we expected much more. We requested two beds, our room had a king bed and one sofa bed. The bed made our backs hurt. The room was small. Our bathroom window (as did others) opened into a public breezeway; anyone walking outside can hear you taking care of your business. The window did not shut tight so... More

Some complain about the age of this lodge, but personally I think it adds to the charm not being all spic n span. Sitting by a log fire with a wine in hand, with a view you can't find anywhere else.....who cares about the paint job being old. I loved it. Service was average but friendly staff, and while the...
