First let me say that this SHOULD be safe during the current eruption. The USGS at least says it's OK. It's usually upwind from the plume eruption and far away from the molten lava. I stayed in the large Mauna Kea room, which is upstairs...More
Prepaid over $500 for 5/18 stay. Checks/$ orders ONLY, please. Queue quakes, eruptions. Cancelled for health/safety/security. Too bad, so sad. No refund under 14 days. We appealed 2x citing customer service, goodwill. Inn's replies: no danger here, it's miles away. Unless Civil Defense says go,...More
Super clean, quaint and a real gem which you may not expect when you drive in under the icicle lights. Set in a rainforest, our room was on the second floor of the main building. Yogurt and pineapple filled papaya halves were served every morning...More
Very difficult to pay. They only take cash, so if you arrive without enough, you have to wander into town to find an ATM. You won't know any of this from the listing which says "No Prepayment Needed " The email confirming your reservation, which...More
Rustic but acceptable accommodations - It's kind of like being in a friend's mediocre cabin - sheets, beds, tvs are all acceptable - but barely. Still, the location was great and the breakfast fine. Honestly, I wish I'd paid more for a nicer experience, but...More

Please understand that this is a "Mom and Pop" establishment and that credit card payments actually cost the proprietor money (a percent or two depending on the type of card). This is just one way the Volcano Inn keeps its prices down. This is a small establishment and I would bet they could not afford last minute cancellations (like big hotels can do because they have lots of rooms and are rarely completely full). I have tried many places to stay in Volcano and the Volcano Inn is far above all places that are less expensive as well as several of the more expensive places. I stay at Volcano Inn two the five times a year and have for the past five years. I like to book ahead (and send in my payment) to be sure I can stay there - it is that great! Plus, I like to give business to locals. For its price, the Volcano Inn is the very best bet. They are always very helpful and polite on the phone so if you had a problem with mailing your check from another country you could explain this to them and I bet they would keep your reservation and wait for your check.

All rooms are reserved on a first come, first serve basis. January is a busy month so we recommend you make reservations as soon as you are certain of your dates. It is a bit cooler in January but a fine time to visit... More
