Where to stay in Volcano

Volcano remains compact, so accommodations are pretty straightforward. Bed and breakfasts, cottages, and lodges represent most of the options here, but you'll also find a couple of hostels/budget inns. Most establishments feature traditional Polynesian architecture. Many accommodations sit near the access road to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, but a few are set a bit farther away from it.
