We booked a one-night stay at the Volcano Forest Inn for a two-day visit in the Volcano and Hilo areas. This lodging worked perfectly for our brief stay. The location within a rainforest is fantastic and convenient to area dining and Volcano National Park. We had the Rainforest Room with a king bed, bath with shower/tub combination, a small refrigerator,... More

Stayed here for two days while visiting the volcano national park recently. Just wish we had more time to spend there as we were out all day to sightsee. This is a little gem tucked away off the road, the room was beautiful, and surrounded by bushland. It was lovely to sit on the balcony and hear the sound of... More

The location was a bit difficult to find. Arrive in daylight for sure. Very quiet and quaint B&B. Friendly staff. Bed was quite uncomfortable and noisy. Food at breakfast was average. Check in and out was a breeze.

We spent the night at this bed and breakfast so we could view the crater at night. The staff are nice, the room are very large and comfortable. Breakfast is plentiful and we enjoyed the fresh local fruit. I would stay here again if I return to the area.

This B&B is right at the Park entrance, well kept with spacious rooms, BUT NOT A B&B ! The Owner lives in California, and the Innkeeper just has a negative personality. He works here simply to have a job. He makes the stay negative. It needs a real hospitality host. I don't recommend that you stay here!

The location is so close to the entry of the Volcano National Park, and is amongst lovely rainforest. You are awoken by beautiful birdsong, then treated to a delicious cooked breakfast! The rooms are very large, with a nice ensuite and balcony. Your hosts are very friendly and helpful, we would definitely stay here again!

The Volcano Forest Inn is nestled back from the road in the fern forest. Lots of cheerful chirping forest birds create a beautiful melody to wake up to. The inn is only 6 years old with completely modern facilities, a very comfortable and nicely decorated room. The owners are friendly and helpful and cook up a nice breakfast. They are... More

Stayed here some time ago. The location is close to the Volcano National Park and in a nice quite location close to a couple of shops and restaurants. No cooked breakfast but the continental breakfast was great, lovely Papaya with other tropical fruit. Since we've been back we've done the same breakfast for ourselves when the fruit's in season. Stayed... More

We stayed at the Volcano Forest Inn Jan. 8, 2015. We just needed a place to stay for one night, as we wanted to see the glow of the lava from the museum at night, and didn't want to drive in the dark. This place fit the bill. It was decently priced and very close to the Jagger Museum. Unfortunately,... More

Checked into the Rainforest room and loved the spacious, clean and peaceful ambiance. Location is perfect for exploring the nearby Volcanoes Natl Park. Breakfast was served during a rather short one hour window, from 7:30 to 8:30, which was a bit early and brief for us although others anxious to start their day might not mind. Our preference would be... More
