Great place to stay to visit the national park. Stayed in a crater view room which is nice to watch the clouds, fog and light change through the course of a day. The location is great for a morning run and or walk as well. Was a little different staying during covid. Restaraunt is doing takeout only but the food is good and you can eat at tables outside.

I've always wanted to stay here and so I booked 3 nights on the first day of reopening after quarantine restrictions were lifted for state residents. Added bonus: the only guest in the hotel for the first night! The caldera-view rooms are definitely worth the extra $$ if you like to stare out at an ever changing landscape: the entire expanse of Kilauea, the steam vents pumping in the distance, Mauna Loa visible one minute and obscured the next, cloud and mist rolling in and out, and all the while the birds are singing. You are literally a couple dozen feet from the crater's edge (which is forested on the north rim). If that's not your thing and you just want a place to sleep, opt for a standard room on the other side of the hallway. It's an old building but well maintained and extra precautions are being taken to keep things sanitized. Super friendly staff. Meals available in house. Naturally, you have access to the trails and drives of Volcanoes National Park (you are in it and must pay the entrance fee) as it opens up more and more. Many of the trails are literally at your doorstep. The hotel offers kama'aina and senior discounts. I couldn't have spent 3 better days! The details: coffee maker, iron, safe, table and chairs, and no TV in room.

We stayed one night at Volcano House. We were in room 7. The room had a king bed, 1 bedside table and lamp, very small desk and chair (with a light over the desk), a fake fireplace, clock. electronic safe, phone, coffee maker, and an iron and ironing board. There also was a heater, and an extra heater (necessary because you are at about 4000 feet elevation). It did not have a TV or A/C, and the lighting was pretty dim. The bathroom was pretty small, and only had a shower. But the service was friendly. But we weren't there for the room, we were there to be up close to the volcano. And in that respect, the room was fine. Room 7 has an earthen mound right in front of its window. This is the mound that covers the Whitney Vault, which we learned when we went on the evening walk with Charlene (?), the lady from Camp Hill, PA who was a member of Friends of Hawaii Volcano National Park. She gave an interesting guided tour. We watched a big steam cloud arise and dissipate in the caldera early in the morning, which I don't think most day visitors would have seen. I doubt we'll stay there again.

What a cosy lodge located centrally in the national park only a 3 minute walk from the Volcano NP Visitors Centre. Food was exceptional and staff were friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the atmosphere with a huge log fire in the lounge area. Beds comfortable and rooms well furnished as a typical lodge. It is easy to explore the park from here.

What a location! When there is lava in the volcano this must be extremely exciting. The old world charm was delightful. Ensure you book a room with a view over the caldera. Book an extra day to allow you time to do the numerous local walks. Our only grizzle would be the dining.
