My husband and I stayed there for 1 night, overall it's a good place to stay for a short period. I'm not sure I would want to stay for longer though, because as we entered the Paniolo room, it has some moldy smell although all windows were half opened. They have screens that they put under the opened windows so... More

A quiet B&B...only stayed one night but it was what I was looking for. About an 1 1/2 drive from Hilo Airport. Fifteen minutes from the entrance to Volcano National Park. The breakfast was ONLY fruit so be prepared to eat more elsewhere if you have activities nearby. Sorta cluttered in it's layout but good enough for my friend and... More

We stayed at the Aloha Hapoy Place last night, and enjoyed it! This is a bed and breakfast that is very convenient to Volcanoes National Park. It is very tastefully and interestingly decorated in a cottage style. Our stay was very comfortable, and everything we needed was provided, including a very nice continental breakfast. The B&B is on a farm,... More

Wasn't expecting a LOT but there are some things you need to expect. First of all, Volcano is a very moist environment, and the house/rooms are poorly sealed. You'll notice the musty smell as soon as you walk in the door, and it doesn't get better in your room. My allergies were going nuts the whole time—sneezing and snuffling and... More

We booked for one night in October, and the stay was pleasant. Like some other comments mentioned, the house is homey, and the room decoration is lovely. The bed and was comfortable and we both slept very well . It looks like a private house renovated for hotel usage at a remote village near the Volcano National Park, only about... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night in August. We were a bit hesitant about staying here, but were pleasantly surprised. The house is homey, and the room (Alii) was lovely. The bed and bedding were comfortable and we both slept very well. There is a lovely library where you can sit by the fire (working fireplace) and... More

The Aloha place was AMAZING! The place was very clean and comfortable. The owner provided a well organized and convenient place to stay. She provided flashlights and maps to use if u wanna tour the volcano at night. Also, there are thick jackets, hats, umbrellas to use at night, because it gets really chilly at night. The place is just... More

booked this property in march 2013. Followed instructions - no one was at the home. Very clean. Unfortunately, we had a very rainy night and the windows in the small back bedroom banged all night long. Mattresses need to be changed - very little support. Saw no one the next day. This is not a B&B since there is no... More

We stayed in the Ali'i Room and it was fine for our purpose. All the windows were shut when we arrived so the room was boiling hot, but cooled off when we opened all the windows and got the ceiling fan going. The bed was very comfortable, and the living room helped us not feel cramped. We had dinner just... More

One has to be careful about booking accommodations at Aloha Place online, because there are at least three websites for this inn, all containing conflicting information. We used the main site to book a four-night stay in the separate Sushi Cottage and were attracted by the description of the elegant furnishings and the private lanai with a promised view of... More
