We stayed here for two nights while visiting the Park and the small volcano village. The entire house is very new, and the rooms because of this are extremely spacious. The rooms are kept very clean and the beds + linens are comfy and clean as well. The location is very close to the Park (5 min drive) and also... More

The hosts here were very friendly and helpful. The location is nice and set a good ways back from the main road, and the room was large, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was convenient and delicious, and we got to meet some interesting folks who were also staying there.

My wife and our two kids stayed here for a night while visiting Volcanoes National Park. The Inn is very close to the park and located in a beautiful rain forest setting. Room was clean and large. Breakfast consisted of banana pancakes, fresh fruit, and banana bread which was all delicious. Wish we could have stayed longer!

There is a reason why this was the only place available to book for our dates near the Volcano. The rooms are very large. Decorated in garage sale motif. Clean sparse room, but watered down soap, and ancient half hanging filthy curtains. Bed pillows were like sofa back cushions. We were tired after a day at the volcano. Very difficult... More

We were staying just one night in Volcano and didn't want to spend over $200 for a room. We made our reservation at the Volcano Forest Inn as part of a package deal with airfare and car rental through Priceline. The road to the inn is just a few tire tracks on the grass - look closely for the sign.... More

We flew into Hilo and stayed in the Volcano area for two nights to fully enjoy the Volcano National Park. We moved on to the Kailua Kona side for the rest of our trip and departed from Kona airport. Volcano Forest Inn is less than 5 minutes away from the park. You can't beat the location for exploring the park.... More

Clean and friendly with delicious and substantial breakfast all in a beautiful rain forest setting. Very peaceful place close to the entrance of Volcano National Park as well as good places to eat. It is nice to sit out on the porch and enjoy the natural setting.

We were fortunate to find the road to a wonderful Bed & Breakfast (which we had reserved), as night is not a great time to find the entrance. As we drove down a long dirt and stone road, in the middle of the jungle, there it was,a large house. It was all uphill from there. Carlos, the interesting innkeeper, met... More

We enjoyed this place very much. Very close to the National Park. Very clean and spacious room. Breakfast was excellent. Thanks to Carlos and Tammy who made our stay warm and welcome. We would definitely go back again if we ever visit there in the future. Highly recommended.

Clean, spacious room, friendly hostess (thanks for breakfast, Tammy!) Our room had windows on 3 sides and we did pull the drapes on any of them--it is that remote a site. Just a few minutes drive to view the volcano at night which was awesome.
