I am so disappointed in this hotel that I do not know where to start. We paid well over $400 USD for a room only marginally better than a backpackers. The rooms are small, smell funny, and I am really not sure what bit was renovated. Certainly not the bathroom or furniture- I think they may have bought some of... More

We were both starving and so we ordered the strip steak with lobster tails. Both were grilled to perfection and the mushrooms and purple sweet potatoes were excellent accompaniments too. For $7 more Volcano House is far to superior to Kaleia Lodge food wise, and at Volcano House be sure to reserve for a window table, in advance. We stayed... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and it was an amazing experience. We had a volcano view room and it had a great view. The room was large and clean but beware the walls are paper thin. One evening we were on facetime to our daughter and the people in the next room banged on the wall! The... More

After staying in a small B&B, I forgot how loud a hotel can be. No fault of the management but the lack of consideration from other guests. People let their doors slam shut or yell down the hallway without thinking of others staying in the hotel. The accommodations are finr but for a significant sum they're average. You're really paying... More

We had dinner at the Rim on Friday Feb 13th. Our waiter John Britos was absolutely superb. We decided to let him pick out our food and we were not dissapointed. He was friendly and very knowledgeable and made our night perfect. We travel all over and servers like John are definitely not the norm. We will be back again... More

For a lodge in a national park, this place is awesome. They've renovated a 70+ yr old building and it works. The atmosphere and location is beyond believable -- you are on an active volcano. Just across from the visitor center, and on the main Crater Rim drive (that's closed a few miles down the road because of the current... More

Volcano Hotel Peaceful and relaxing are appropriate words to describe Volcano Hotel and it's surroundings. There is no television in the rooms, windows are open to the sounds of birds and wind whispering, as leaves dance back and forth, and you hear the crunch of footsteps walking past your room as people explore the many paths on the property.

This hotel is showing its age in room size and layout however they have been renovated recently and are plenty comfortable enough. However there is nothing that can beat the location right on the edge of the volcano, which certainly justifies the price. Make sure you book in the restaurant (ask for a window seat) as well as it was... More

The hotel is a newly-refurbished National Park lodge, which means it is in an unbeatable location. It also means that prices are high, but there's not the level of luxury that the prices might imply elsewhere. For me, however, that's an acceptable trade-off. Being able to see the volcano glow from the hotel's public areas is worth the price. I'd... More
