Location, location, location! If you are looking for a place right at the Volcanos National Park this may be a great choice. The inn is located basically in the rainforest, I have never seen ferns this tall! Upon check in we had to make our ways to the other campus at the other end of the highway in pitch dark... More

Would you stay at the worst room in a hotel cheaper than Motel 6? We wanted a hotel to stay near Volcano National Park on the big island of Hawaii, entered a date, and TripAdvisor listed available hotels and rates. The only hotel within the park was Volcano House, and the rate was $300+. And this is not your 4... More

We loved this sweet inn! The staff was fantastic, so kind, helpful and welcoming. Our room was lovely and very comfortable. The inn is a beautiful, rustic retreat in the middle of the rain forest. We look forward to our next stay!

Very nice place to stay while visiting Volcano National Park. Very good breakfast with nice pastries, interesting fruits, cereal, coffee, tea, etc. Our room was offsite but in a nice spot surrounded by tropical vegetation. Perhaps because of the humid conditions and the fact that the room may have been empty for a few days, the room seemed musty but... More

Thanks for staying with us and glad you enjoyed your time up here in the Volcano rain forest. It is a constant battle against too much moisture here in the rain forest which is why we do have dehumidifiers in every room. Hope you choose to stay with us again in the future. Aloha! More

I stayed 10/23 - 10/26/16. I thought it was a great deal. The free breakfast was delicious - Papaya fruit with yogurt, banana chips, and almond chips. I ate 3-halves my last day. The hot tub was a godsend after a long day of hiking and bike-riding. The room had a beautiful rain forest view with large windows, and opening... More

Aloha, Thanks for staying with us! Glad you enjoyed the breakfast as well, the banana bread is dangerous! Most Hawaii residents use weedwhackers or weedeaters because the grass is often wet, mowers get bogged down with wet grass often. It can be frustrating, sorry it disturbed your otherwise pleasant stay! Hope you choose to stay with us again in the... More

We stayed at volcano inn for 3 nights. You feel like living in between a rainforest. Our room was very spacious and clean with huge windows.

We've have stayed here twice (summer 2013 & winter 2016) best priced placed that is clean, a place to lay your head down at night after a day of hiking in the park or exploring other parts of the island. Our rooms were clean and comfortable!. I would stay here again.

We booked this inn several months in advance and used it as our base to explore much of the island with much of our focus being on the National Park. We stayed 8 days and it was just great. We had a unit with a kitchen which was helpful for the length of stay. Check in was fast and all... More

This is our second stay here and for the price, it can't be beat. The grounds are beautiful with ferns and ohia trees and anthuriums. There are jacuzzis in little gazebos surrounded by the forest. At the end of a long day traipsing around the volcano, the jacuzzis are welcome treats. The rooms are spacious and very clean. If you... More
