Travel Blogs from Volcano
We were all a bit tired and sore today after our long hike last night so we slept a bit later today. We were up and going at 6am and after a quick breakfast in the room we were on our way to Volcano National Park.
We did our traditional sign picture and then made our first stop at the visitor center. We stamped our passports, picekd up …
This morning we got up, super excited to see lava! Our first chance to see it would be from a helicopter! We drove to the airport, and we were very happy we weren't here to fly back home yet. We checked in at Paradise Helicopters for our Fire and Falls tour, and then waited in a back room until our flight time. There was a film playing here that …
... lived, where irrigation channels were dug for the sugar cane, and the cross where his son was lost at sea. This area did not lend itself to mechanisation - too sloping, so when sugar prices went down, the mills and plantations went out of business. We followed the coast to Hilo which is an old port town. The areas were thick with tropical jungle and also acres of eucalyptus trees grown for ...
... the music and watching locals mingle with each other. Thursday, we went back to the tide pools for more snorkeling..more fun.. We saw some interesting, beautiful fish and coral. Lunch was again at the Isaac Hale park. We really enjoy watching waves and surfers. We ended the afternoon by sitting at our shoreline in the shade watching the waves as they crash against the lava ...
... before getting to the Hot Pools. This was a naturally warmed sea inlet full of tropical fish. Ali was very brave and went for a swim despite the warning sign that the fish might become aggressive! We then drove on to the lava tree park. This was a slightly bizarre one mile loop walk which took in the 'lava trees' These were formed by an eruption approximately 200 years ago which was just the right temperature and consistency of lava to coat the trees but not destroy them so ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Volcano Inn Cottages
Apparently there are two Volcano Inns in Volcano HI. This review is specifically for the Volcano Inn located on 2nd Street (off Jade St.) in Volcano HI.
This review is for the Volcano Inn on 2nd Street.
This Volcano Inn is located on 2nd Street. This consists of 4 rooms located in 2 seperate cottages. They are located in a rainforest which the double corner windows overlook.
We stayed 5/27/06 - 5/31/06 in the Nene cottage.
The right place to stay
Frommers as always was right. A great value.
A quiet respite in Volcano - nice deal
Very nice room and a great value at the Volcano Inn on the outskirts of (don't blink or you'll miss it) Volcano. Spacious room with good queen bed, enclosed porch with fridge, nice bath on second floor. Continental breakfast wasn't fancy, but enough choices, fresh fruit, kona coffee, etc.
We recommend the Thai, Thai restaurant, but you can skip the Lava Rock Cafe. They roll up the sidewalks at about 7 in Volcano.
I stayed at the Volcano Inn in the village of Volcano, HI on January 20th, in the Hapu'u room. There are actually two Volcano Inns in this area so make sure you go to the one on Second St. near Jade St.. It's an incredible value (especially for Hawaii) in a very beautiful part of the rainsorest. I paid only $79.00 with tax for the night! The Nene and Hapu'u rooms are actually a duplex behind the main houe that the owners live in. They have TV, a microwave, coffee pot, and a small fridge. From the bed you look out two large picture windows into a rainforest filled with awesome tree ferns. It also has a full bath seperate from the bedroom. Make sure to check in before it gets dark or you may not find this place. The sign is in a bit from the street, in the driveway and it's very small and hard to see even in daylight. This a great homebase for exploring Volcano National Park, which less than ten minutes away. That's what I did. If you have a family they also have a multi-bedroom place with a kitchenette. This place is very serene and quiet, and you'll only see the owners upon your arrival and departure. The only negetive thing was the lack of shampoo in the bathroom, so make sure to bring your own. Also they won't take a credit card, they require you to pay for the room ahead of time by personal check (and it must clear the bank first) or money order. It' a little weird but it went alright for me. I guess that's why they rent for sooo cheap! Great value in a beautiful place!
Excellent hideaway in the rainforest near Volcanoes National Park
This is one of the most inexpensive places you can stay near the Volcano. Do not get it confused with the other Volcano Inn though. This one is located on second street and is a series of small houses behind the owners house. Very friendly and excellent accommodations.
Please Note: There are two "Volcano Inn"s. This review is of the "Volcano Inn" on Second St. off Jade Ave.
