Volcano Inn Hawaii Hotel – Hawaii’s Best Volcano Hotel Value Since 1989!

Started in 1989, Volcano Inn Hawaii Hotel is the perfect “Home Base” for your Hawaiian island getaway. We are centrally located close to everything you want to see and do. For ideas on how to get the most out of your trip, see our Planning Your Visit section. Spend your days adventuring around the island and your evenings relaxing in our saltwater hot tubs, tucked away in the beautiful surrounding rain forest. Located in Volcano Village on Hawaii’s Big Island, Volcano Inn is less than one mile from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. We are at a cool 4,000ft  (1,220 M) elevation on top of the active Kilauea Volcano. Nestled in a tropical ʻŌhiʻa and Hāpuʻu fern forest, Volcano Inn is famous for its picturesque beauty and tranquility.


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

Enjoy the Aloha spirit from our welcoming and friendly staff. Don’t take a chance with an Airbnb nightmare ruining your vacation to Hawaii, causing unnecessary stress. (We often get guests who are frantically struggling to find a last minute accommodation because of an Airbnb fail) Instead, enjoy your relaxing Hawaii vacation and make the most of your time by staying at the Volcano Inn Hawaii Hotel.

Volcano Inn offers group lodging and hotel rooms for up to 50 people. We can accommodate tour groups, wedding parties, family reunions, clubs or any kind of large groups with our array of rooms. The location is prime, we are right off of Highway 11 and centrally located to everything you want to see in the area. In our large common room area, your entire group can enjoy breakfast in a beautiful rain forest setting. There are three different hot tubs spread across our two properties.

Conservancy Statement:

As an “eco-friendly” accommodation, ecology and sustainability are very important to us at Volcano Inn, not to mention we are dependent on the rain-forest for our water. We supplement with solar energy as much as possible and we ask that you please be mindful during your stay in the jungle. You will notice signs asking you to conserve water (this also includes linens/beds if you are in a room with more beds than occupants, as this creates unnecessary laundry) in addition we feature power saving mechanisms in several of our rooms, thank you in advance for contributing to our efforts to conserve resources.
