“What a relaxing time!”
Reviewed 29 September 2006

My husband and I needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu so I booked a week at Volcano Bed & Breakfast on the Big Island. I was a bit aprehensive because of the extreamely low price (we're used to Hawaii prices being very high), but we really needed a break and didn't have alot of money.
We were so pleasantly surprised! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The building we stayed in is an historic site, built in 1912. We felt like we were staying in old Hawaii. Very personable with decorations like a home not some sterile, cookie cutter hotel. Granted, the rooms are small, nothing is fancy, and the bathrooms are shared but the furnishings were comfortable (my husband spent most of the time on the sofa reading a book or watching TV), the continental breakfast was more than expected (bread, choice of cereals, fresh fruit not canned, coffee, and a choice of teas), and the area was wonderfully quiet, peaceful, and much cooler than lower elevations. Volcano is in a rainforest so it is damp all year long. Dress appropriately.
I've read, on this site, some people really slamming Volcano Bed & Breakfast so, even though is was a couple of years ago that we first stayed there, I had to write this review to show the positive side. We've gone back since then and brought friends and those friends have also gone back again even though we were unable to join them at that time.
If you're looking for a quiet, simple, inexpensive place to stay in Volcano I would definately recommend Volcano Bed & Breakfast!

Chalet Kilauea was an okay hotel. I wouldn't recomend this hotel for families larger than 3. The rooms are very small (don't hold a lot of people) and very outdated. But, the staff was very friendly and kind. At breakfast, there wasn't a table that my family of 4 could sit at together. I wish there were choices for breakfast and I would have liked it to not have been as slow service.
Over all, an okay hotel and interesting setting.
