Now that we are in Waikiki, we appeciate much more the serene, green and friendly tones of this Inn. The innkeepers were ever so helpful in pointing us to places not in our travel book, breathtaking places such as the ancient koas forest. We three stayed in the large Lei room which has an enclosed sitting room over the jungle,...

We stayed in the Honu Room, with a jungle view and lots of nice things in the room and in the lobby, the wi-fi worked in the room and the breakfast was refreshing, the innkeeper very nice and informative.

I would echo what the other reviews say about the rude innkeepers, poor furnishings and overall low quality. Would also point out that the room is lit by a bare fluorescent lightbulb, is moldy and damp, and there are signs everywhere telling you what you can't do (e.g. use the bathtub, take anything but "very short showers" (!)), and loud...

It was a dark and dreary night, our last night in Hawaii, the end of a beautiful two week trip. We had been touring around the island and found ourselves in the town of Volcano so we decided to stay the night at the Volcano B&B. The B&B was a cute, old home. It had 5 guest rooms, a large...

We do not have a room in an attic, this must be someplace else. We have no ghosts.

If you want to be treated fairly, warmly, or even civily, look elsewhere. The Volcano Inn on 2nd street is nicer, cleaner, and cheaper. There is absoluetly no reason to stay at this Inn. Meeting the inn keepers almost ruined our entire vacation and boy are we glad that we decided to cut our losses and find a new place...

This is right at the edge of the park so when you only have one night and 2 days, you want to be close so you don't miss anything. This was perfect. It's easy to find, they make it easy to get to your room even if it's dark when you get there. The rooms are Beautiful and very spacious....

We tried to stay here. Our stay was booked by our travel agent - I would never have booked after reading its rating and comments from previous guests, but figured a travel agent wouldn't book in a substandard hotel. Our troubles began almost 2 weeks before we left for Hawaii when we decided to change our reservation from 2 days...

Other reviews of this property had some negative things to say but I had no problems. Some say the staff was unfriendly, well I don't remember ever seeing any staff so that was not a problem for me. We arrived in the evening and our key was in the envelope on the noticeboard outside the office - that was easy....

I was a bit hesitant staying here because of all of the bad reviews, but this was one of the few places that would take a one-night reservation. However we were pleasantly surprised by the inn. The directions were very easy to follow, our key was right where it was supposed to be, and the room was clean. There were...

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
