Why choose us?


You may notice that we are not your typical hotel.
Live like a local, for less!

Have you ever wondered what it is like to live in a lush Hawaiian rainforest? Have you ever walked along a well-maintained rainforest trail? Have you ever done forest bathing in a rainforest? Have you ever soaked yourself in a hot tub in the middle of the rainforest to unwind after your long day? This is your chance! Not only can you walk through the rainforest, you can also enjoy the lovely view from your room. 

Spend your Hawaii vacation exploring, not driving!

Get yourself a room with Volcano Inn for an excellent home base while you tour around the Big Island of Hawaii. Many people who plan a day trip out to the Volcanoes National Park don’t realize that it takes 5+ hours to drive back and forth between Kona or Waikoloa to the Volcanoes National Park. Save yourself from hassle and exhaustion of driving by staying near the Volcanoes Park for a few nights to explore the Park and the east side of the island. Volcano Inn is only 5 minutes from the Park. We have discount accommodations right where you want to be.

Free Island Style Breakfast

Our hostess begins working at around 5:30 am every morning to bring you freshly baked homemade banana bread. Coffee is ready at around 6:00 am and is available all day in the common area. From 7:00 am until 9:00 am we invite you to join us at the main house for loaded papaya bowls, banana bread as well as other juicy seasonal fruits. Our papaya bowls begin with a locally sourced papaya, a squeeze of lemon, filled with a scoop of plain yogurt, then topped with local bananas, crushed pineapple and fresh mint from our green house. Half and half is provided in the community fridge. Other beverages include tea, hot cocoa, and water.
