Nestled in the Hawaiian fern forest and situated on the edge of Kazumura Cave and Lava tube, Aloha Crater Lodge welcomes you. Located less than 2 miles from the entrance to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, our rooms are designed with your privacy in mind. Every room has it's own entrance and gorgeous views of the natural Ohia and Hapu'u landscape. A continental breakfast is placed in your room daily and includes homemade Hawaiian tea bread, a basket of fresh fruit and complimentary Hawaiian blend coffee and tea service. Enjoy your coffee while overlooking our collapsed lava tube. Kazumura cave is a treasure to behold. Breathe in the beauty and majesty of the days of old when lava created this incredible sight. After breakfast you might drive down the hill to Hilo, about 30 scenic miles, where you can shop til you drop or beach it for the day. Unwind before dinner by taking a hot tub. Situated near the lavatube for your relaxation and enjoyment. A gourmet dinner awaits at any one of the fabulous restaurants located in Volcano Village, Thai Thai, Lava Rock Cafe, Kilauea Lodge or The Rim at the Volcano House. If you have dinner at the Volcano House, view one of the HOTTEST attractions happening in the Volcanoes National Park, Halema'uma'u crater. Hawaii Volcanos National Park is one of the few places in the world where you can view a live active volcano. For most this is a once in a lifetime opportunity not to be missed. Remember, this is how these islands were made! Lava viewing can also be seen from the end of HWY 130. Located about 1.5 hours from Aloha Crater Lodge, the lava enters the ocean near Kalapana, truly an amazing sight to behold!

We arrived in the early evening. It looked like a private home at first, and we could not find the office. We drove around to the back and there was a small office sign above a sliding glass door. I knocked on the door and several dogs came out to greet us and then the owner. I was sure we had gone to a private home instead of a lodge. We were taken to our room and we were shocked to say the least. It was damp, moldy, not clean, very dirty carpet and plastic patio chairs around a old table. I really felt like I should sleep with my clothing on!! We were there just for overnight thank goodness. The breakfast was 3 pieces of toast, with a jar of jelly that had been dipped in by many guests before us. I passed on that and ate one of the yogurts that were provided. The granola was in an old pasta sauce jar. I would have not taken a shower in the bathroom even if you had paid me. The grounds were lovely in the front and when you pulled in - we walked around the grounds and the back area looked like a junk yard seriously - no maintenance that I could see anywhere. What a shame as it could be so much more with just a little care. We do not recommend this lodge at all...

Shannon and Dan were great; the accommodations were nice, clean and quiet too! We loved being so close to the National Park. The lava tour was defiantly an added bonus and well worth the stay! Dan did a great tour. The grounds are beautiful.

This lodge was a great place to unwind after our long trip. The vacation rental had plenty of room for our family of 5. Dan and Shannon are fantastic hosts, and went out of their way to make us comfortable. Don't miss the lava tube! MUCH better than the one in the park!

This was a good place to stay. Their referral saved us $200 on a helicopter tour. But far and away the coolest thing was the lava tube.

We only stayed for one night and the highlight was definitely the lava tube onsite. Thanks to Dan for giving us an excellent tour of it. The room was what was expected with what we paid for - we were just looking for a clean room/bathroom and nothing more.

we got upgraded without asking for it and then the lava tube expedition with the son was a really extreme experience, it made this stay a lovely memory also the room with many little details, so thoughtful, we loved it and already recommended it to other friends

This B&B offers some beautiful landscaping and even a personal on-site lava tube and crater. The location just outside Volcano National Park can't be beat. We appreciated an upgrade to a larger room on check in. Finally, Dan offered some great tips on lesser known sites like black sand beaches and lava viewing spots.

This is a unique B&B nestled in a rain forest with beautiful grounds that made you feel you were staying in a remote area but town was not far away! We were reserved for a smaller room but because they weren't full they upgraded us at no charge for our honeymoon! We loved the fresh baked items and they gave us good directions for things to do in the area. I would absolutely stay here again it was lovely!
