My husband and I went on a last minute whim. Rooms were small and dirty. There were pieces of paper on the ground which didn't get vacuumed up, and bath tub looked filthy. For being "newly renovated" I was already looking run down. Extremely pricey (we stayed at the Hilton on a whim for the 4th and that was over... More

The park was magical trip with my daughter that I will never forget. Watching a glowing volcano early one morning with a cup of coffee was a perfect way to start the day. 🌋Sitting by the fireplace looking over the map of trails was something I want to do again with my daughter in the near future.

Volcano House is the hotel in Volcanoes National Park. Overlooking the main crater, with the reddish reflection of lava visible throughout the night, Volcano House is definitely a special place. We stayed for one night in June. To be honest, if you like hiking, you could easily devote a full day to the park -- making two nights quite reasonable.... More

We spent 2 wonderful nights at the Volcano House. Our room was very comfortable and we had a wonderful view of the volcano. It was great to be able to stay in the National Park and easily access so many fantastic walks. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. They advised us on the best walks and times to... More

The Volcano House is across the street from the Visitors Center (not visible through the trees) but it is only a short walk between the two. It not much to look at from the outside but inside it has the feel of an well maintained historic lodge with a large common area for people to gather to view the volcano... More

We knew from reading the reviews the Volcano House was going to be basic and rustic, which was fine but for $346 per night, before fees and taxes, there are some easy affordable changes to the simple amenities. For example, the toilet paper in the rooms is the cheapest there is and I think for what we are paying we... More

Don't expect a luxury 4 or 5 star hotel. This hotel has a cabin like feel to it. The rooms are very basic and small, but clean and accommodating. We had a volcano view room, which was absolutely amazing. The breakfast was very basic (no oatmeal) but they did have a made to order omelets and a Belgian waffle bar.... More

We visited Hawaii National Park early in the morning to make it on time to have breakfast at Volcano House. I was surprised to see a variety of menu items. Such as, an omelette station, fresh fruits and waffles. Omelette person was great!

This was a great pit-stop for our family while visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The room was small for our family of 4 but it worked. These are not luxury accommodations, but a solid hotel for our needs. No A/C, but not really needed here. There was no room for a roll-away, but the closet was so gigantic, our 11... More

This is an old hotel. There is no elevator, so I'm lugging 60lbs worth of luggage up the stairs. The walls don't have much insulation so you hear any noise in the hallway. We did have a crater rim view, but since there was a screen over the window, the view was distorted. We went to the Jagger museum after... More
