Though this place is great with the ammenities it provides - gloves, flashlights for volcano walking. A full kitchen to use at anytime of the day except breakfast. (a big plus because dining is limited in the town, just bring groceries from Hilo or Kona) There are some big issues. Fist, the shared bathroom. It could use some work. The shower needs to be replaced. Mildew is an issue but I think anywhere in the town would have this problem. Bathroom noise was a problem. The walls are paper thin and depending on what room you are staying in, you get to hear everything that is going on in the bathroom. The garden room seemed okay but our friends in Alpine found the noise the worst. And, the one bathroom just isn't enough if all the rooms are full. They should really put in a half bath somewhere to provide an extra toilet. Gets rather busy in the AM. I have stayed in a lot of B and B's and never had these issues before.
The second issue was Robert. Everyone raved about him and his friendlinees in the previous posts but we did not experience this. Maybe it was a bad couple of days or something. He just seems burned out, a little cranky. And breakfast was disappointing. One day, he didn't cook enough eggs for all the guests, and he took off in his golf cart before we could ask for more. Another time he put juice glasses out and never offered juice. Food was pretty generic quality.
So, for the price, I might stay there again with all the above in mind, (staying in the Pele suite with private bath) but I would first look into other options in town.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Aloha Junction B&B is located in Volcano Village just behind the Post Office noted for proximity to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park 1 mile away and restaurants in town. Guests also enjoy the 1930's old plantation structure providing five spaciousness rooms and electric blankets for those chilly nights in the rainforest. In addition free parking and well attended-to children are welcome. Each room has it's own coffee maker, mini fridge and microwave but best of all are Robert's breakfasts. One of his specialties are the Papaya-banana boats with macadamia-nut pancakes. After spending time in this "Drive-in" style National Park, most people want to include some evening time to walk out to the overlook of Halemaumau Crater ~ which convinces even the strongest skeptics that Kilauea is an active volcano. ... more less
