We made reservations for dinner as soon as we got to the park (and after a Visitor Center visit), they only had options after 8pm by 10am... was glad the Ranger told us to get that done immediately. After a fun filled day in the...More

I am sure that this review is no longer worth much as so much as changed since the eruption has changed the landscape considerably. We walked and visited and appreciated being on the Rim of the Crater. This year, we look at that and say-...More

We are a family of four we stayed one night in a volcano view room on the second floor. The room was comfortable, but it is older and dated. We didn't stay there for the accommodations, it was for the location. The view is stunning!...More

We had a room with 2 double beds...so 4 was no problem. The walk in closet could easily fit a pack n play or kids size air mattress if one of your 5 is a child. I'm not sure if they have any rules about extra guests.
