Mind boggling to think there is a national park at active volcanoes. especially they erupted last year. But it was great, to see the steam vents and sulphur farms...what an experience, you can also see the lava beds and some of the destruction caused by last years eruption

The Volcano House is the only hotel in the national park. The common areas of the lodge are nice, but the rooms are 2-3 star level- firm Motel 6 caliber. In other words, they are clean, functional and provide the bare necessities. However, the bed was too soft, the noise levels from the hallways and outside are tough. No Air conditioning, so windows have to stay open, which would be fine except the trail around the rim is right outside the hotel, so lots of loud kids in the morning. The reason to stay here used to be the glow from the lava lake that you could see at night and early in the morning. After the 2018 eruption activity, the lava lake has been emptied. Breakfast cost $15 per person for a buffet that was ok. For a hotel breakfast, the price was fine, but aside from eggs and waffles made to order, the rest of it was equivalent to what you would get at a Motel 6- juice, coffee, frozen muffins and some fresh fruit and cereals. Dinner was good, but nothing special. Ultimately, Volcano Village is literally two minutes outside the park where if you want to stay over, you can find a cheaper hotel option. Also, with the 2018 activity over, I think the park can be done in a day trip- we loved the Chain of Craters Road, Rim Drive (including the walking portion) and the Kahlua Iki Trail was decent, but all that could be done in a day.

Very accommodating, especially The Rim restaurant for honoring our reservation when we were delayed due to airport issues. I called the restaurant to explain and they assured me that we would be seated when we arrived. Great rustic lodge accommodations, very friendly staff and excellent view of the caldara.

The whole experience was fantastic. From the hotel there are excellent hikes through steam and sulphur fields also short drives take you through breathtaking lava fields and you the coast line which in itself is stunning and beautiful. Sunset is magnificent and the food available in the restaurant was fantastic.
