Rooms a little run down, but it is an older hotel. Restaurant and bar was amazing, friendly service. Food was awesome. The view from the restaurant was breathtaking. Cozy feel to this hotel. Wouldn't hesitate to go again. Staff was great. 😉👍

I stayed one night at this hotel in July 2015 and booked the Deluxe Crater View Room for $400+ per night. I originally wanted to stay for 2 nights but it was sold out for the first night so I stayed in a cottage about 5 minutes away in nearby Volcano Town. Turned out to be a blessing because one...

Well done renovation, all the best of the old are there and all the updates for modern convience. Splendid room on second floor looking at the caldera. Staff very kind and efficient. Sit a while in the lobby in front of the fire, yes a fire place, or on the sitting room with floor to ceiling windows Looking onto the... More

Mark Twain stayed here, and you can tell. He was enthusiastic. You can tell about that too. It is a very mixed bag. First, the positives: great location, overlooking the biggest publicly accessible active crater in the park. All recently refurbished--new paint, bedding, bathroom facilities, public areas, etc. Softest beds and best pillows I've experienced in years. Very helpful staff,... More

Volcano House is conveniently located at the beginning of different trials and we managed to cover the majority of those without the necessity of moving the car. Maybe on the expensive side as previously pointed out but not sure how many places allow you to wake up on the edge of one of the most - actually, probably the most!... More

The Volcano House at Kilauea is expensive, but there are only 35 rooms, and the experience is unique, as the rooms overlook the Kilauea caldera. The beds are comfortable, and while the bathroom is small, there is a good shower. The hotel staff are friendly, helpful, gracious and eager to serve. In addition to a view of the glowing caldera,...

Sleep on a volcano! The hotel is located right in the park, with easy access to walking and hiking paths...and you get a view of the volcano! Book the restaurant when it's dark and get a view of the orange glow at night. Food was good, room was clean, people were friendly. Yes, it's expensive, but when else will you... More

We initially tried to stay IN the Volcano House but found that all the rooms were full. They mentioned that they also offer camping services where they offer all the equipment - a fully set up tent, mattress, sheets, duvet, towels, ice box, lantern, camping chairs, so it was really glamping rather than camping. But even in the pouring rain,... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in June. Not sure what to expect, we found a good sized, clean and comfortable room. We did not opt for a room with a crater view. No regrets, the view from the sitting room downstairs, the restaurant and outside at the overlook was plenty good. Both the restaurant and the bar... More

Great old fashion hotel. We enjoyed our stay. Ask for a room with a view. Our room had a view of the parking lot. This was okay as there are several places from the hotel where you can view the volcano. Make a reservation in the Rim restaurant for around sunset and watch how the view changes. Sure, it's overpriced,... More
