A nice respite near the Volcanoes National Park. The dining facility has limited hours but the gift shop is open and has a nice selection of snacks. The rooms are somewhat spartan but a great price for Hawaii. One of the perks of military service.

The cafeteria offers pretty good food. The salad bar is a typical salad bar and the meals made to order are alright. What's great is the location, about half way between the crater and the entrance of the park, and the prices, very reasonable for...More
