Management acting like deer in headlights after "small kitchen fire" closes the onsite restaurant and bar. Rooms that cost over $400 per night and management can't figure out how to bring in food for breakfast, make the "boxed lunches" their website advertises or serve an adult beverage. When asked at the front desk why a bottle of wine could not... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Volcano House. This lovely old property was recently renovated and was charming. The room was quite large and had a roomy walk-in closet. The bathroom was a bit small, but was fine for our needs. Parking is limited in front of the hotel, so we had to park in the overflow lot at... More

Very nice, somewhat rustic inn. Great dinner and breakfast at a table with views of the volcano's glow. Except for a problem with our reservation request, great service all-around. A special experience. Though I requested a crater-view room with two beds, all they had reserved for us was a crater-view room with a king bed so I ended up sharing... More

Part of the charm of the big Island is the natural beauty and getting up close to the volcano. If you enjoy a little more "primitive" lodging. but like a comfortable setting, the ‎Namakanipaio Cabins are for you. Make your reservation early because they fill quickly at $50 a night. The cabins sleep up to 4 people, in comfortable beds... More

You can see the crater fine from this room (very exciting the first night) but I sprung for two nights in the Deluxe Crater View Room in the annex building on the ground floor. I would definitely try to get a view room in the main building on the first floor. Overall, the lodge website is very accurate. This is... More

I'm not sure it's worth the price but then again, where else can you wake up at night - look out your window - and see the glow of lava on the horizon? The staff were fabulous, the room was charming and clean, the location on the crater was spectacular. I guess I was most irked by the Motel 6... More

Spent 2 nights at this lovely place. The room was nicely appointed and gave a clear view to the active crater in the caldera. (They teach Volcano Basic Speak 101 in which you learn what the actual meanings of these terms are....). There is a lovely breeze which means the lack of air conditioning is completely irrelevant. There is also... More

Our refurbished Volcano House room was small but very nice. Sound proofing between walls - - not so much - - but the good news is no tvs! The restaurant, for its location, is excellent. If the weather cooperates, you can have a wonderful meal, enjoy a few glasses of wine and not have to drive to the Jaggar museum... More

We went to see the Volcano but unfortunately it was a very, very foggy wet day. Still very interesting but not the view we wanted. Had dinner reservations at The Volcano House. All four of our meals were very good. Fish was excellent. Prices were high end. Atmosphere o.k. The best part was that in the middle of dinner the... More
