“Service-Convenience-Location erupts here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Cookie from Canada is right on in the review. Only thing was slight noise level ( I don't like hearing the neighbors in their rooms) but after hiking all day, eating the fantastic meals, sitting in the calm hot tub, you don't hear much. This is the ONLY place to stay if your going to the park.
Staff is very friendly, the chef, Ramon, is the owner with his wife and he cooks a mean Antelope Schnitzel I have to say. Wow.

Awesome place and we will go back when Pele invites us again!

Room Tip: Top floor room.

We were part of a group of six riding bicycles around the island. The folks at Kilauea Lodge were very welcoming and allowed us to store our bikes in the laundry/garage beneath our rooms. We arrived cold and tired and really appreciated the gas fireplace in each room. Dinner at the lodge restaurant was delicious and so convenient and the complimentary breakfast ordered off a special menu offered many choices. The hot tub, community room, the flowers and plantings in the lovely grounds and the charming rooms all made the lodge one of our group's favorites after a two night stay. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed one night in this beautiful lodge, but would have loved to stay longer. The room (Ohia) was large and very well furnished, with a cute little porch just outside. There is a community room with a fireplace that we would have enjoyed had we more time. The dinner in the lodge dining room was great, a highlight of our trip. The breakfast that is included is generous. I especially loved the grounds with many ferns and flowers. Also appreciated the senior cat and the care they take of her.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

We stayed one night at Kilauea Lodge as part of our 9 night trip to the Big Island and were very happy to have chosen this place. It was charming and unique and our room (Hale Aloha Room) was very spacious. (Also stayed at Hale Kona Kai and Marriott Waikoloa – reviews posted separately if you’re interested).

Our room was on the upper floor and the only negative I found was that the floor was somewhat squeaky in one area. Not a big deal to us but we did try to avoid walking there out of consideration for the guests in the room below. Of course in an older building these things are to be expected and I’d not want to give up the quaintness for an issue like this but future guests may want to weigh the pros and cons of 2nd floor (carrying luggage up the stairs) vs 1st floor (possible floor noise from above).

We had dinner in the lodge and were surprisingly disappointed after reading so many glowing reviews. Service was excellent, soup & salad were good but we didn’t even finish our main courses due to taste…and the fact that my meal had a hair in it. On the bright side, the included breakfast was great – my french toast and my husband’s omelet were delicious. Interestingly, other reviewers experienced the opposite of what I’m saying – enjoyed their dinner, not so much for the breakfast.

Best part of our stay at the lodge? Proximity to the Volcano National Park, waking up in a cozy room to the sounds of the birds in the rainforest and the yummy breakfast. We’d stay again if ever in the area & recommend it to friends.

We stayed 2 nights at the Kilauea Lodge and loved every minute of it. It was beyond our expectations. We stayed in the "Hideway" which is a one bedroom located above the owner's 3 car garage. Don't let that scare you away - it was a beautiful room with full kitchen, fireplace, and separate bedroom. With the peaked wood beamed ceiling and cute cubbie holes you feel like you're in Yosemite Valley instead of on the edge of an active volcano. The room comes with a full breakfast in their dining room which was great! We had dinner there one night and were more than impressed with the service and food. The Lodge is about a mile from the entrance to Volcano National Park so we drove back each night to watch Madam Pele's beautiful glow. Can't say enough about this beautiful lodge!

Room Tip: We loved the "Hideaway." Ask for it, if it's available!

We recently stayed in the Ola'a cottage for two nights. It was just like the pictures show. Very clean and comfortable. Great location for exploring the area. Breakfast was very good, plenty of options. We ate dinner at the restaurant one night. It was excellent with a few unusual (but good) options. Would definitely stay here again.

My husband, two children, and I stayed at the Ola'a Plantation house just prior to Christmas. The staff at the lodge were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was great and I felt the choices were very generous. I was a bit worried after reading a couple of reviews that stated the choices were somewhat limited. We all left very satisfied. When staff learned that we had to check out very early for an early flight, they offered to provide us with boxed breakfasts that could be prepared the night before. The cottage was beautiful and well furnished. We did not do any cooking, but the kitchen was well stocked. The fireplace was a nice bonus as it did get pretty chilly at night. Beds were all comfortable and the house was very clean. There were beautiful flowers growing around the house - including orchids! The house was located just up the road from the Volcanoes National Park. I would definitely return and highly recommend!
