If you love the thought of sleeping on the rim of an active volcano, gazing at the Milky Way, hiking beautiful trails and rain forests and lava fields this place is for you! Beautifully renovated and staffed with people who are full of aloha! You can sit by the fire or sit in the lanai view room with your coffee... More

Even if the weather is rainy, maybe it will stop just long enough (as it did for us) to catch a glimpse of the volcano’s red glow. In the meantime, Scott at the bar was very humorous and kept us very entertained. We had some good bar snacks and well-made cocktails.

Yes, the rooms are expensive but where else are you going to have a view of a glowing crater? If you are staying here, do pay for the crater view. I loved waking up in the middle of the night and being able to stare at the lava glow. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the drinks from the bar... More

My wife and I decided to have a staycation on the island, we've been plenty of times to Kilauea but we had never stayed the night, what an amazing time we had, our room was a deluxe crater view and we slept with the curtains open so we could see the gow from the volcano from our bed. We ate... More

OK so the rooms are by no means 5 star what they are is clean, comfortable and have all the facilities that anyone could need. Think more wood lodge than hotel and you'll get the idea. However what you pay for here is the view. To sit and look out your window and see the glow from an active volcano... More

What a great surprise at the Hawaii Volcano House. The rooms were perfect, very clean and the BEDS WERE AWESOME! Oh, how my aching back loves that bed! It's really neat that there are no TV's in the rooms. So everybody congregates in the bar (where there is a TV) or in the living room, where there is a fireplace.... More

You're never going to find a view like that. I stayed in a room with a view for the Volcano for my birthday. Honestly, you could see the volcano from the bar and restaurant too and the room very comfortable but not luxurious, it has the right balance. The atmosphere and the service are fantastic and the breakfast is excellent.... More
