The Volcano House hotel on Hawaii Island announced the completion of $4 million in safety upgrades by the National Park Service, as well as $3 million in renovations. Opened in 1846, the property is the oldest hotel in Hawaii, as well as the only hotel located in Hawaii Volcano National Park.

The hotel offers 33 guestrooms, each with complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access. The rooms sport vintage-inspired Hawaiian fabrics and furnishings, and many of the rooms provide views of Kilauea volcano.

The property hosts The Rim restaurant, which is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and features seasonal specials, with 95% of the restaurant’s protein, fruit, and vegetables locally sourced. Also at the hotel is the Uncle George’s Lounge, which offers appetizers and afternoon cocktails.

The Namakanipaio Campgrounds, located three miles from the hotel are also part of the property. The campground features ten newly refurbished one-room cabins, each with new flooring and beds, as well as community campground facilities featuring refurbished bathrooms.

The rustic wooden cabins can accommodate up to four guests, and offer a full bed and twin bunk beds. Each cabin is provided with bed linens, towels, and an electric light, although there are no electrical outlets.
