My wife and I just returned from 10 days on the Big Island. We stayed in both budget hotels and a beautiful resort. While in Volcano we spent the worst 2 nights that we spent anywhere else. The Ohia Hideaway smelled musty, had mold throughout, bad tap water, inadequate heat and was dirty. They tell you that in Volcano to expect cold damp weather and then they supply the "house" with 2 tiny plug in heaters.
If I had spent 40.00 a night it would have been too much. I submit reviews every time I travel and like nothing better then to write a glowing review and do so about 95% of the time. We do not stay often in 5 star resorts but look for quality for the price locations and this was about the worst place we have stayed since we used to tent camp when we were younger, and even that was better.
