We had read good reviews so we decided to book two nights while visiting the Volcano National Park. We were very disappointed and left after the first night. The staff was friendly at check in but we were assigned to an unit several blocks from the main inn so we did not get a chance to enjoy the inn's amenities or gardens. Upon entering our room, there was an overwhelming dank, musty smell. We opened windows etc but it still was pretty bad, It became problematic for two of our party who had allergies. There is a small heater disguised as a fireplace that did a reasonably good job but you are ordered to turn it off at night. Since the temperature went down into the forties at night, the unit was icy cold in the morning. While the bedroom beds were comfortable, the one in the living area was not and did not have adequate bedding for the cold night. There are lots and lots of rules issued as demands too. I really like giving a good review to places I stay and I travel a lot. But I can't in this case and want to warn my fellow travelers.

We stayed in the Mauna Kea room for 2 nights and really enjoyed out stay. The room was spacious and very clean. The common living area was spacious, warm, very comfortable. the veranda dining area was lovely. microwave, hot and cold water and tea and coffee provided by the hotel, but a toaster would have been really handy! 5 min drive to the volcano national park entrance, some grocery stores and restaurants just up the road in Volcano town (which is a tiny town!). great clean outdoor hot tub, open 24hrs. this hotel has a lot of character and was a really nice place to stay. i would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to Volcano.

The room had two sets of bunk beds and one queen bed, large dining table, small fridge and microwave. Breakfast is served upstairs in a common room with nice views of the surrounding forest. It was very quiet, but the place had a little bit of a weird vibe.

Plan your trip to VNP well and do your research. It is a long drive and if you only there during the day you might not see much. The town of Volcano doesn't have much to offer. Only a few B&Bs, a store and a couple of restaurants. We visited Jagger at night, which was very cool and did the the lava boat tour with seelava.com.

We had the great fortune to find the Volcano Inn family cottage quite by accident, after a long day of touring Volcano National Park. The roomy one bedroom "Gecko" cottage was tucked away in a lush tropical jungle, replete with anthuriums and giant tree ferns. We were delighted to have a well equipped, nearly full kitchen (minus a stove, but with a microwave). We loved the privacy, and admired the decor and excellent craftsmanship displayed throughout the cottage. The cottage had everything we needed, and we hope to return next year! Thank you so much!

We stayed at the Volcano Inn for six nights in early November. The purpose of our stay was hiking Volcanoes National Park. We could not have chosen a better location nor a better property. The large, corner room we had was a few blocks away from the main inn in a quiet, beautiful spot complete with a hot tub! Everything about our stay was top notch! The room was clean, comfortable and cozy with a full kitchen and gas fireplace. When I researched the Inn online, the "more you stay, the less you pay" benefit helped me decide to stay there (plus the positive reviews on TripAdvisor!). I must say, though, the photos on their website don't really do the rooms justice. I was prepared for more humble accommodations. When we walked into our room, it was a "wow!" moment. Conveniently located near the park, great restaurants nearby, and a serene setting. A truly exceptional experience!

Room tip: Volcano Inn has a wide variety of room types. We chose a large, corner room because of the length of our stay. From our experience, I would say you couldn't go wrong no matter which room you chose!
