I don't think our rooms had air conditioners. If they did, none of them worked. It'd be nice to have that option when staying anywhere to accomodate people w/ allergies and sensitivity to open windows overnight, especially with the occasional smell of sulpur from the winds. There were stains on the sleeper sofa. There were no soaps/shampoos provided in bathroom. ( I suppose the maids forgot it b/c the the cottage next to us was also rented by family of mine and they had some. In fact their cottage did actually appear to be a little nicer or better maintained) Beds were comfortable, except the pillows were lousy. Very mushy & small. We were in a 3-BR cottage. There was a mini fridge & fireplace which I'm sure would be great when the weather gets cooler. The prices at the restaurant were fairly reasonable for average food/meals, the convenience store was a nice bonus and the lounge really appeared to be hopping for the 2 nights we stayed over the weekend. They even have $2 bowling at the arcade center on Sunday evenings. All in All, we had a great time visiting here. The crater is so close at the museum right up the road. The trails around the crater rim were nice to walk, although there's a good chance you will be walking in the rain in that area. This area is one of the wettest places in America so be prepared - maybe a poncho would be a good idea. The rooms provide flashlights and umbrellas which is great!
