Best part were the clean and very hot outdoor tubs, with pure water only, no chemicals, so it was a joy to soak and watch the sky and trees outside. Our room,with private bath, was large (2 double beds) and furnished with antiques and/or old stuff, but nonetheless very weird and charming. A/C and refrigerator in room as well as... More

My daughter and I on a motorcycle trip stayed here for 2 nights. Breakfast is great, tubs awesome, drained and cleaned daily. The spring water is pure potable water, no sulfer smell. Thunderstorms kept us at the Inn most of one day and we were able to tour the whole site. The staff was entertaining as well as informative. A... More

The Inn at Benton Hot Springs is a jewel. Set in a historic mining town, the Inn offers a variety of accommodations: nine rooms in the main lodge, about ten campsites (each with its own spring-fed hot tub), and two guest houses. Owners Bill and Diane Bramlette are dedicated to preserving the historic town and inn. Three of us landed... More

After being caught in a thunder shower at Mono Lake I decided not to camp and called the nice people at Benton. I lucked out and got the last available room, The Bermuda Room. Many of the rooms have shared baths so do some research if that's a problem. The rooms have satellite TV and books to read. There are... More

My husband and I had read about the hot springs and called to reserve a campsite. The peso. I talked to was very nice. He had a spot for us by 3:00 pm. They clean the tubs daily. We arrived at 2:30 and we got our spot early! The camping is for self-contained units but well worth it for 40.00... More

This place is high on my list of places to stay. We have not stayed there 5 or 6 times and I'm sure over the years there will be more stops. It is on a route we routinely take but even if it were off our path, this is a place that it is worth going out of your way... More

We highly recommend staying at the Inn at Benton Hot Springs. Each room is beautiful decorated and comfortable. The rooms are heated with hot water under the tile floors and it was very comfortable. TV reception and WiFi reception was good - near the office. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and the hosts were very kind to accommodate... More

Highly recommended! I stayed at the campground during a two-month bicycle trip of the western states. If you're riding through, definitely stop here! The owners are bicycle tourists themselves, and will happily give you route advice as well as a discount. The camping spots are large and spaced far enough apart that you don't feel cramped. Each has its own... More

I had been wanting to stay at the Inn and was not disappointed. The room was comfortable, the hot tubs soothing, the owner pleasant and helpful, and the breakfast was delicious! Nice and quiet too! The only downside was I couldn't connect to the available WiFi and TV reception wasn't good, but no problem. It was a good respite from... More
