Aaaaah hot springs!

The pools have varying degrees of hot water. It was so relaxing! We were so relaxed by the time we left. The changing room were ok but could use upgrading, but they were fine.

This place is a hidden gem! We had the place to ourselves and had access to all the pools. The temperature ranged from 102 F to 115 F without any sulfur smell. Some pools are larger than others, three are south of the Inn, one pool next to the main road into town and another two near the river. We... More

The natural hot springs pools at the Spa are fantastic. A number of pools, all with different temperatures and depths. The location is unique, right along the river. The hotel itself is something out of the "Twilight Zone". The rooms are good sized, but the furnishings are in desperate need of updating. Our room had a window AC unit in... More

We did not stay at the hotel, we only enjoyed the pools. The pools are fine, don't get me wrong. I just wonder why so many people in Salt Lake told me to go up there. There is a nearer nicer hot springs in Honeyville, Utah called Crystal Hot Springs. One thing this place does have over Crystal is its... More

This is a great place to take family or friends for a few hours of simple relaxation and conversation. The facilities are clean and there's something for people of all ages, including young children. There may have been people keeping an eye on things, but if so it wasn't obvious. People were left pretty much to their own devices, and... More

The water was warm & wonderful, the pool a bit busy, but that was expected for a Saturday on a 3-day weekend.

Husband and I went for one night and stayed in the Spa room. Very nice room with a huge heart shaped jetted tub. Their hot pools are much nicer than the community pools and I would recommend paying to use these but when you stay here, they are free to use. The Inn was quiet and within walking distance to...

We mostly enjoyed our stay at the hotel after the shock of our rooms being across the street behind the local market. You have to take standard quality for the area into consideration when staying in Lava. I was however not ready for room to be located off property. It was not advised when booked over the phone or easily... More

went out for coffee 3 separate hometown residents said we should not have stayed Here. The worst thing was the manager saying "The Hilton charges to use their pool after checkout". NOT true. We travel extensively-You are a guest til you depart. They even hold luggage!
