We visited Volcano House for one night towards the end of our honeymoon, just a few weeks after the hotel was reopened. Even amidst our honeymoon, it was special to be able to have the glow of Kilauea just outside our window. We could have spent our whole visit in our room staring at the volcano, but there’s a lot...

We spent 1 night at the Volcano National Park and chose the Volcano House for its unique position. Booked a crater view but upon check in they gave us a parking view low floor room. After our complaints they finally could find out our room while we were visiting the park and we moved into it. Considering the price the... More

Don't anticipate too much even though you are paying high $$. I did and I was disappointed in the room. It is a historical place, so it is small and old looking and feeling. I prefer modern and up to date - especially for the price that I paid. All I could see from my room was a tree blocking... More

We originally booked one night (Crater View Rooms) as a special treat for our first night on Big Island but extended another night as there was just so much to do in the National Park. The hotel is relatively expensive but you have to consider that it's not that big and the location is second to none. The rooms on... More

Volcano House is a most unique property in a National Park. Recently refurbished it has a lovely ambience. The rooms are cozy and feel like an old hotel that has been restored. The views from the crater view rooms are pricey, but they are truly one of a kind. A once in a life time experience not to be missed... More

You cannot go past this hotel for an amazing experience, sleeping and/or eating as you overlook an active Volcano. I knew this hotel was on the pricey side, but I have never been to the Big Island before and figured it would be worth the expense and am so glad we made the choice to stay here. We got two... More

We ended up staying at Volcano House by an act of sheer Grace, and we were so very impressed with our accommodations. We wished we could have stayed longer; it was far more than we could have hoped! The renovation on the lodge is beautiful, holding fast to the old workmanship while making improvements to ensure the best quality stay.... More

We stayed in Volcano overnight and enjoyed a sunset dinner at the Volcano House Restaurant. We were seated by a window overlooking the Kilaeua Caldera. Good food and wine list; excellent service. However, the highlight of the evening occurred 20 minutes after sunset when the lights were dimmed and the caldera's glow was fully visible. There also is a nice... More

Centrally located in the national park we were able to jump around the park using the volcano house as a HUB. It was amazing to wake up before the sun rose and make a short drive to the Kilauea observatory to see the lava like while the sun rose in the distance (highly recommended). The room was spacious, quaint, and... More

I wouldn't recommend any other place to stay if you are planning on visiting the park. Yes, it's a historic lodge and a beautiful one. (The people complaining about no mini-fridge should never do Vegas.) We had 2 cribs in our room and still had plenty of space to move around. The front desk staff was wonderful - got back... More
