We stayed at the 2nd Street Volcano Inn for 3 nights in mid-April 2007. We are a family of four with two teenage sons. The room--actually half a house (Gecko)--was huge (to us, palatial!), very clean, comfortable, well-equipped, reasonably priced, and convenient to Volcanoes NP (entrance is maybe 3 miles away). Only 30 minutes from Hilo (but more if you are traveling to Hilo around 7-8 a.m. -- more traffic -- allow 45 minutes then). It rained the entire time we were there, a bit more even than is characteristic apparently, but we still enjoyed our stay because our room was so cozy and we liked being there! Heed the note in the directions they send you that it's hard to find the place in the dark. Bring your own soap & shampoo as others have advised; liquid doesn't come out that easily. Ron and Jeab are very nice.
Make sure when you are making reservations that you are talking or corresponding with the 2nd Street Volcano Inn -- another that goes by the same name on Old Volcano Rd. is not nearly as nice (just read the reviews).
Thank you to Ron and Jeab for a great stay. We will recommend you to anyone headed for Volcano!
