We stayed at Halana Lodge for 2 nights as part of our exploration of the national park. The property is set far back from the village, approximately 10-15 minutes drive. When we arrived there, we called the number displayed on the door and the innkeeper was here within a few minutes. She was welcoming and extremely polite and helpful, but it felt rushed and a bit creepy once she left. Because of the place being in the mountains, it gets cold, misty and dark quickly.
The room as well as the rest of the lodge smelled damp; requires more frequent airing and/or use of dehumidifiers. It did not feel right. The window sill in the Blue Hawaii room had mould growth. We ran out of hot water in the morning. The bath towels cannot dry because the place is saturated with moisture. Breakfast was ok but not astonishing. Go to O'hia café in the village to top it up, get a decent cup of coffee and a huge sandwich for your lunch.
I really don't mean to be harsh, but if I were to come back to Volcano, I would not stay here again.
One positive point is that the innkeeper knew everything about the area and I am grateful we were advised to go see the volcano glow at night, it was amazing.
