we decided to spend the night at the cabin to make the most of this side of the island, it was a cheap ($80) night in a totally adequate cabin which allowed us to stay up and see the lava glow without have to drive back to kona, also, we were able to get up and watch the sunrise which magically lit up mauna kea and then we were close to the green sands beach/cliff jump which we did the next day on our way back to kona. the cabin had four towels and sheets and a blanket for each bed. we were there in march and had sweat pants and hoodies, which we all appreciated, but were comfortable. the bathrooms were absolutely adequate for a camp ground, bring your own toiletries. totally worth seeing the stars too.

In between stays at luxury accommodations at Waikoloa Resort, myself, my wife of 2 days and her children wanted to go on a road trip and check out the national park. I am an experienced backpacker, so I thought it would be fun to go "rustic" for one night. When we arrived and saw the cobwebs/spiders, saw the dust and peeling paint, realized there was no heat and the bathrooms were barely passable....my wife was not amused. Fortunately when we were at dinner, we had more blankets delivered and the staff swept away the spiders. The sheets were crisp and beds quite comfortable, so it wasn't too bad and my 2-day old marriage was saved.....but I don't think my wife will trust me to go "rustic" again anytime soon. (She did have the unique experience of peeing outside the cabin at 5am because she didn't want to walk to the bathroom.) Combined with the fact that there was no real volcanic activity or lava in the park, the whole thing was a bit of a downer.

We enjoyed staying in the cabin, and the bedding provided was adequate for the temperature, although we did have to shut the window above the bunkbed, as it got a little breezy at night. There was a resident rooster at the time we went, who liked to crow at 4:30am. However, if you were planning to get up early and walk across to the Jagger Museum Overlook to watch the sunrise over Kilauea, it was a very helpful alarm clock.

We stayed for two nights and the weather was raw and rainy most of the time. They give you very little for bedding and the cabin is small and reminded me of a backyard shed. It was cold and we had trouble keeping warm. They are old cabins and really in need of updating. They were not filthy but could have been cleaner....a new coat of paint inside would help. The rest rooms were OK . The main advantage is being in the park. Other lodging in the park is very expensive and it is a long drive from lodging outside the park. The price was the cheapest lodging in the park but overpriced for what you get. It was more like something you would pay $35 a night for elsewhere.

Our experience with the cabin was a bit mixed. Getting access to the Volcano Lodge perks was nice (welcome mimosas and morning coffee) - I think you are able to borrow bikes as well, although it was raining for our whole trip and we were only there for one night, so we didn't try that out. One of the perks is that you are so close to the park that it's easy and accessible to get to the Jaggar Museum, so if you want to go check out the lava at night, it's not that far of a drive. The cabin itself was nice looking - comfy sheets on all the beds. The sound of the rain on the roof was relaxing to try and sleep to. However, there were several noticeably big spiders around (including up a bit higher). It's one thing to have them outside the cabin, inside is a bit different. My husband and I are campers so we're not strangers to the outdoors, but it was a bit hard to sleep knowing there were some all around (we also had to lay out all our wet, rain-soaked clothes and items to dry, so we were really hoping nothing would crawl in them). The cabin has an outlet which is awesome for charging your phone or whatever other electronics you might have. The bathroom house seemed to be fairly well maintained.
