I hated this place. I wasn't expecting anything fancy but I figured it would be rustic and charming. Wrong. It was stinky, old, and overall just really bad. I've traveled a lot and I've never been to a place that I simply just didn't like anything about, until Volcano Inn. Maybe it's just the Gecko room, I don't know, but... More

The cottage was clean and the breakfast was great. It was just a few miles from Volcano National Park. Another reviewer stated the place had no heat and had a moldy smell. The area in general gets a lot of rain, so there is a dampness in the forest. And all they had to do was turn on a small... More

I enjoyed my 2 days at Volcano Inn. Very clean and very close to the volcano and a couple of nice restaurants. Nice little hot tub for the cold evenings at 4000 feet. Great little spot for 1 or 2 people.

Liked: 1) 5-minute drive to Volcano National Park 2) Lovely grounds, nice hot tub after a day's hike 3) Clean unit Disliked: 1) bed was uncomfortably hard (like futon) and incredibly creaky. 2) Female worker (who turned out to be one of the owners) needs to be a bit more personable. for someone who's in the service industry, she needs...

We had read good reviews so we decided to book two nights while visiting the Volcano National Park. We were very disappointed and left after the first night. The staff was friendly at check in but we were assigned to an unit several blocks from the main inn so we did not get a chance to enjoy the inn's amenities... More

The room had two sets of bunk beds and one queen bed, large dining table, small fridge and microwave. Breakfast is served upstairs in a common room with nice views of the surrounding forest. It was very quiet, but the place had a little bit of a weird vibe. Plan your trip to VNP well and do your research. It... More

We had the great fortune to find the Volcano Inn family cottage quite by accident, after a long day of touring Volcano National Park. The roomy one bedroom "Gecko" cottage was tucked away in a lush tropical jungle, replete with anthuriums and giant tree ferns. We were delighted to have a well equipped, nearly full kitchen (minus a stove, but... More

We stayed at the Volcano Inn for six nights in early November. The purpose of our stay was hiking Volcanoes National Park. We could not have chosen a better location nor a better property. The large, corner room we had was a few blocks away from the main inn in a quiet, beautiful spot complete with a hot tub! Everything... More

There are no hotels in Volcano Village. Lots of B&Bs to choose from but the most interesting ones apparently get booked several months in advance. The national park hotel on the edge of the crater was closed for renovations so that may have had something to do with the scarcity plus it was the week after Ironman and we saw... More
