This place had the basics for a good stay. Comfortable beds, warm shower in clean bathroom, nice living room, kitchen w/stove and sink, and location near shops and restaurants. Perfect for me since I was alone. I also enjoyed talking to the owner, Ophelia who treated me with a great deal of kindness. Thank you.

My wife and I found The Paradise Inn to be a bargain. Nice, comfy king size bed with eclectic furnishings, it was a cozy place to spend a few days. Ample kitchen enabled us to enjoy some good home cooking. Although no wifi was included, we discovered that if you went across the street to the Sirius Cafe and made... More

Like other travelers we needed a quick room for a night possibly more if we wanted to see a bit more of the volcano area. For two couples the price barely justifies the state of this place. It's only assets are proximity to a couple decent restaurants and it's less expensive than a more accommodating b/b or guest house or... More

This place is very well located and this is its only asset. otherwise, the room is dirty, never cleaned after each guest. the toilets have never been repaired contrary to what the owner said during 5 days. if u can avoid that place, do so ! Very expensive for its value !

We booked over the phone, last minute because we'd never planned to stay overnight in Volcano; in a few words, there must be better places there!!! But if this is all you can afford or is available then stay because the lava hike is WELL WORTH staying overnight for.

We needed a clean enough place to stay in the Hilo/Pahoa area for a short stay. We found Island Paradise Inn to meet the criteria quite well. While not spotless, most places are not, it offered us a very large room with plenty of space as well as a kitchen so that we could cook and pack up meals. As... More

Island Paradise Inn is NOT a place to go if you are looking for conventional, high rise, ocean-front destination resorts. It is THE place to go if you want a place which is moderately priced, off the tourism circuit, in a lively and eccentric town and owned and managed by a woman who takes pride and interest in her properties....

As the title says it all...in case you have no idea where to spend the night, with 2 kids exhausted, after a 5 hours lava walk, 10 pm....and no reservation in hand..... When you find a roof with two bedrooms and a shower, than you would take it, whatever the conditions ! Other than that : avoid. Dirty (and we... More
