Our room was really nice, had a second floor room overlooking the crater. Be forewarned, no tvs, but there is free wi-fi ! There are cookies each night before bed, and complimentary coffee in the lobby in the am. Great location, very nice staff! The lounge has great snacks and fun drinks!

Most reviews here are correct in both positive and negative. You absolutely are staying here because of the location and no other reason. It sure is a unique environment. The hiking in this area is astounding and this is a great home base for all of that indeed. Top marks for location. Ahh but the caldera. Don't get me wrong,... More

The newly refurbished room was nice. Fireplace, cute walk-in closet with safe, ironing board, & iron. Nice toiletries in the bathroom. Watch out for the coffee pot! At the end of the dripping it shoots out a stream of hot steam!! :( No fridge or ice machine, but we got some ice from the restuarant to keep our yogurt cold... More

We had visited the hotel on past visits making a note to stay but there never seemed to be enough time (especially away from the beach in our younger years) but this time booked 2 nights with the family. We had a nice room with a view directly overlooking the crater. The room was just great in terms of comfort... More

It is not a big hotel and this is great The people is very gentle You can borrow some bikes (is complementary) and it is a nice way to go around 1 problem: the room is very noisy due to the walls which are to thin the breakfast (15$) is perfect Regarding the vue: there is nothing better

Upon entering the hotel, I thought it looked kinda decent. First, we decided to checkout the gift shop because I thought it'd be nice to get a small trinket for memories. The prices were outrageous. One small sticker, smaller than the size of a credit card was $4 and small jewelry dishes had prices even at $35. After browsing at... More

I didn't stay in the hotel so I am just reviewing the lunch we had the restaurant. There were 7 in our group including 3 kids aged 3, 9 and 14. We were told we couldn't be seated at 1 table even though they could easily have pushed 2 together. The waiter was the surliest person I have met in... More

My husband and i stayed in room 28. $395 + tax etc added up to $440 a night. Very, VERY basic room with a bit of a wet smell to it but all that would be okay as you pay for the amazing view. Why i give this a bad rating is for the following reason: Our room was on... More

Know before you check in that you are paying for the view, location, and hospitality .Do not expect luxury even though recently renovated. The walls are thin, showers small, no mini refrigerator, or TV but the money spent was worth every dollar! We booked 2 rooms at The Volcano House for 3 nights stay. We had room 11 which was... More

If you want a resort and spa hotel, then stay in Honolulu. This is a tranquil, well run, clean and comfortable lodge in a national park. You are paying for the quiet, cool air because you are in the mountains, amazing views day and night. We stayed 2 days and 3 nights and paid for the lowest level room possible.... More
