i booked a room at volcano hale because it was the lowest price that i saw for a stay near volcano national park. the location was excellent, just 2 miles from the park on a very quiet residential road. there are 6 guest rooms in the house, with a shared large kitchen, living room and sun porch/eating area. overall the house was very nice- only complaint is that the kitchen could've been cleaner. it can be a nice place to stay assuming that the other guests are nice. when i stayed there, a group of 12 college kids and other guests were in the house. it was overbooked in my opinion, with kids sleeping on the floor on mats
when i asked for a change to one of their other houses, the receptionist was extremely understanding and upgraded me w/o charge to one of their lodges which was obviously pricier and more luxurious. the service by the reception desk was exceptional and friendly. there was a computer for common use, free. they gave the impression that they really care about their guests!! it was a good experience.
