Wasn't expecting a LOT but there are some things you need to expect. First of all, Volcano is a very moist environment, and the house/rooms are poorly sealed. You'll notice the musty smell as soon as you walk in the door, and it doesn't get better in your room. My allergies were going nuts the whole time—sneezing and snuffling and...

We booked for one night in October, and the stay was pleasant. Like some other comments mentioned, the house is homey, and the room decoration is lovely. The bed and was comfortable and we both slept very well . It looks like a private house renovated for hotel usage at a remote village near the Volcano National Park, only about...

My husband and I stayed here for one night in August. We were a bit hesitant about staying here, but were pleasantly surprised. The house is homey, and the room (Alii) was lovely. The bed and bedding were comfortable and we both slept very well. There is a lovely library where you can sit by the fire (working fireplace) and...

The Aloha place was AMAZING! The place was very clean and comfortable. The owner provided a well organized and convenient place to stay. She provided flashlights and maps to use if u wanna tour the volcano at night. Also, there are thick jackets, hats, umbrellas to use at night, because it gets really chilly at night. The place is just...

booked this property in march 2013. Followed instructions - no one was at the home. Very clean. Unfortunately, we had a very rainy night and the windows in the small back bedroom banged all night long. Mattresses need to be changed - very little support. Saw no one the next day. This is not a B&B since there is no...

We stayed in the Ali'i Room and it was fine for our purpose. All the windows were shut when we arrived so the room was boiling hot, but cooled off when we opened all the windows and got the ceiling fan going. The bed was very comfortable, and the living room helped us not feel cramped. We had dinner just...

One has to be careful about booking accommodations at Aloha Place online, because there are at least three websites for this inn, all containing conflicting information. We used the main site to book a four-night stay in the separate Sushi Cottage and were attracted by the description of the elegant furnishings and the private lanai with a promised view of...

We decided to stay in volcano for one night as we were kona based and wanted a more liesurely drive experience (and to see the volcano in the light and dark). We're glad we picked this little place. Check in a very different - and trusting! They leave the keys on a cork board and you serve yourself. There is...

I think the reviewers w/ negative comments are significantly biased... Their Main dis-satisfactions were: 1. Not Enough Water. 2. Dusty Smell. 3. Chicken. Considering where the inn is located, these situations are understandable: 1. Water is a scarce resource in the mountain. Availability is based on recent precipitation. 2. You have to pick your poison: open the window to avoid...

We spent 5 wonderful nights here. Though it does a little cold at night this time in volcano village, the thick but comfortable quilt is enough to give us a great sleep. The room also has dehumidifier, beach mats, towels, flashlights, wifi and almost everything we might need there.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This is NOT your regular Joe B&B; actually it isn't a B&B at all, but a farmstead accommodaton. It offers everything you'd expect at a three star hotel and more for a fraction of the cost. Our location is key for planning your perfect stay while visiting the Big Island. We are located a short drive from Hilo International Airport and just minutes from the most active (and safest) volcano in the world. Kilauea is situated at the 4,000 foot elevation amidst lush tropical rainforest where you can escape the heat and crowds of the fast paced city life. Come enjoy some "Aloha" hospitality at its best! ... more   less
