Aloha crater lodge is a very unique spot with a great location. We rented the Orchid Suite for one night. Dealing with the owners was great and they were very friendly when we pulled up. The room was nicely appointed and was unlike anything I have stayed in. The room seemed really clean and had plenty of small touches that set this place apart. A bunch of snacks were on the table and fridge for you to enjoy. The bathroom was cool and the rock shower was one of a kind! The room does not have an air conditioner which was not an issue when we were there but something to be aware about. Small complaints are at the time of writing the hot tub was broken l, hopefully fixed soon! Another is the blinds are thin in the sleeping area so on the ground floor privacy is minimal. It’s a great place and I highly recommend it for couples especially if you are looking to be close to Hawaiian Volcanoes National Park.

*the photos are the condition jucuzzi and the other photos are proving that I cleaned the room before I left, cleaning floors and bathroom as well as removing bedding and putting them in convenient piles on the floor with the used towels* The place was a good location for volcano, not worth it though. When we arrived the female host was a bit aggressive toward us and made us feel uncomfortable. The house very much looked as it does in the photos on the outside The host said since we had a dog she was going to remove the rugs since they do not have time to clean them between guests, (this is posted on her ad” but the rugs were on the floor when we arrived and were filthy. The bedding as far as the sheets and pillow cases smelled and appeared clean, but the top blankets were clearly not cleaned recently and were dusty as well as smelled like mildew. The throw pillows were unable to be washed so we didn’t not use them. They were dusty and mildew as well The floors were disgusting. The only sponge for dishes and the “kitchen” was stored unpackaged on the floor by the toilet scrubber and dish soap. Beware This is not a kitchen it’s a bathroom sink with a mini fridge and some dishes. The hot tub could be a nice touch but it was very dirty in the water and the vents were gross so we spent little time in there. When we went to rinse off after the hot tub there was no hot water or pressure. We told the host and they said there was. I guess just not while we were staying there. Then some creepy guy who I assume was the make host tried to come into our room and he was always staring and creeping around. The shared walls are thin to the other Airbnb. After we complained and asked for a partial refund the host left a dishonest review of me as a guest on my Airbnb saying we trashed the place and it took them two hours to clean it, but I took photos of the place and how we cleaned it and left it in better condition then we found it. She also tried to blame us for “bombing the hot tub” whatever that means 😂😂 we were there for a day, that hot tub has years of neglect and abuse.

Response from Shannon Fisher, Owner at Aloha Crater Lodge
Responded 28 Apr 2021
This review entails a lot of complaints, too many to address. The main issue we should look at are the Airbnb policies because this reservation was made thru Airbnb. Basically any problems/issues that can not be fixed on our end (Aloha Crater Lodge) would require a cancellation/refund and a relocation for the Guest thru Airbnb. Leah's issues/complaints described were not presented to Airbnb at any time until after they actually stayed thru the night. If the complaints were not first filtered thru Airbnb then Airbnb can not refund nor can we. Actually, no matter how our Guests reserve a room if there is a problem between the Guest and the lodging we can only offer a cancellation/refund if a discrepancy is brought to our attention right away. If the issue is unresolvable we will release the reservation and refund accordingly. One of Leah's issues came to our attention directly by messaging, no hot water, this was addressed immediately when we pointed out the shower handle direction to the "H" for hot water and they said it was ok. When Leah arrived she inquired about adding a 4th person and we waived the extra person fee. Extra towels were available in the room and instead of 4 towels they used 8 sets of towels. On check out everything that could be washed in the washer was washed because they had their doggo so comforters/blankets, pillows, throw rugs, cushions et all, in preparation of the next Guest arrival (the same day). It was unfortunate that the Guests in the neighboring room wanted to use the jacuzzi however Leah and her friends, totaling 6 people, were in the jacuzzi all night . One question? If you complained that the jacuzzi was not well, dirty, why did you and your friends stay in for sooo long? Lastly, Leah, your cleaning skills leave a lot to be desired. We cleaned the coffee spilled on the floor and chair cushions. We actually washed/dried 4 loads of laundry that you and your friends used, remade the beds , wiped down and cleaned the bathroom/kitchenette and did everything else that needed to be done for the next check in (the same day). It is possible that Leah stayed here with her friends, reenacting naked and afraid and then purposely intended on getting a refund afterwards. Her complaints, poor reviews across the board and "documenting with photos" their discrepancies/complaints while not adhering to any relevant policies, not requesting a formal cancellation thru Airbnb leave something to be questioned. Her request for a complete refund came in the moment she checked out. Our review posted on Airbnb was made right away and we expected a poor review on her end because we refused her request for a full refund after she and her 5 friends stayed thru the night with us.

We were looking for an ‘off the beaten path’ location and were not disappointed!!! In the middle of a beautiful Hawaiian forest-the room we have is perfect. We have a view of the scenery out of the giant patio door-which by the way leads to a huge deck with chairs to look over the beautiful scenery-as well as the huge window. The room itself makes you feel like you’re at home!! Giant king bed-jetted tub-fresh bread and fruit for breakfast. And the owners are so nice!! Came and introduced themselves after providing us with self check-in instructions. The price is so affordable too!! Highly recommend!! Oh yeah-it’s only 2 miles from the entrance of Volcano National Park. We left the park in we’re here in less than 5 min. Can’t wait to visit the lava tube they have on the property tomorrow morning!!!!

We spent a comfortable night at Aloha Crater Lodge. It's very well located for visiting Volcano national park. Best was: when I left a jacket in the room, the hosts were super accommodating to mail it home to me promptly! Many thanks.
