We weren't so sure at first when we booked our stay here how much we'd like it, but we were going to be in Hawaii...we'd be happy :) Well, our stay was PERFECT! Don't let the fact that you have to get your keys from the hardware store before 5:30 or else the restaurant after 5:30 deter you, we stayed in Wolfie 1 which is across from this cottage pictured. We were the only ones there, surrounded by the forest, with a front porch to sit and have coffee in the morning or lounge in the evening listening to the birds. This is an impeccably clean little cabin, with a little living room, bedroom and bath. There's a coffee maker, they supply coffee and upon arriving and every day when they come to clean is a basket of local fruit and baked breads, a delightful hawainn breakfast. The only downside is there is no microwave, but we didn't have a problem with that. It is a mile from Volcano Park. We would stay there again, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay

Perfect location to visit the vulcano area. Nice hut in the rural village, in the forest. Rooms in good condition, all details match. Check in at the store is OK. Arrive at daylight, much easier to find your way around the village. No drinking water in the bathroom, bring your own bottles.

We recently booked to stay at this Lodge. The Kilauea Volcano started its eruptions before we left our home to travel to Hawaii. We contacted the rangers and the seismic office to get some advice. Both told us the roads were closed and manned by guards so don't try to come. We rang the Lodge and advised them of the situation. We were advised by the operator at the Lodge to just drive around the barriers, (how safe!) He also said no to requests for a refund even though we could not get there. Other operators in Kona could not believe the response. Ethical way to run abusiness!

Stayed at Jade Suite 1 which was part of a side-by-side duplex. Dark wood interior, full bathroom, separate bedroom with a very comfortable queen bed, kitchen with full-size stove and refrigerator freezer. Also microwave, plug in kettle and a coffee maker. There were three packets of coffee available. Also a dehumidifier, propane heater and an oil filled portable radiator in the bedroom closet. Decent cable television and high speed Wi-Fi. Water from tap is not potable but about 5 gallons of potable (bottled) water was available. I appreciated that there was covered parking as it rained quite a bit during my one night stay. I was able to stay dry between car and entryway. I didn't get any banana bread as a welcome amenity. It was a basket with a papaya, a banana, and two commercially packaged oversweetened convenience-store pastries. Got there at about 3 pm and spent the afternoon reading on the porch and listening to the native birdsongs. Then headed out near twilight to experience the night view of the glowing red lava lake out at the Jagger observatory. It rained almost non-stop all night. Beware that the noise as the rain hits the roof is pretty loud and will likely affect light sleepers. I normally play a CD of rain and thunder to get to sleep, so this was perfect for me. In fact, hearing the rain while being snug in bed was the best part of my stay. I would definitely recommend Lava Lodge as a place to stay while exploring Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

I went there for hiking with my family and decided to stay here. The room is spacious and clean and I had a good night sleep here after my hiking trip. This place is very basic and not the 5 star kind of resort but it is also comfortable. I would recommend this place
