I checked in with my key, which was taped to the window of the office. The room is old, furnishings poor, carpet rather soiled. A private tub of rather pallid water, which I didn't use. Bizarre shower/toilet arrangement, which I won't describe. Weird is sufficient. I immediately noticed a lot of loud music from the unoccupied unit next door. After... More

We needed to stay in Cedarville for an event and like to go for the bit of funky, not run of the mill motel/hotel. SV Hot Springs fit the bill perfectly. It is a wonderful place and better than the pictures & descriptions. We enjoyed our private hot tub in the morning while drinking coffee and long soaks in the... More

I've been going to Surprise Valley Hot Springs for at least 5 years as my special solo get-away. I really love the area, the high mountain desert and all it has to offer, the warm and friendly community, big sky, sunsets and sun rises, the amazing waters, and the feeling of peace and wholeness I get when I visit. The... More

It's a little out of the way, but that's what makes it so great. If you like amusement parks then don't come here. The Hot Springs is a great place to wind down, relax, read, and get in touch with yourself or someone close. Bring your own food and refreshments, then you will never have to leave during your stay.... More

way out in the middle of nowhere my gf and I had a suite with our own private hot tub with natural water in a private patio out back of our suite. The town of Cedarville is hardly a town but if you want solitude with great views this is the spot. You have to bring everything food wise as... More

This hotel is directly in the middle of nowhere, and that's why my husband and I love it! No cell service which is amazing when you tiring to escape the stress of running a business. Their wifi is amazing, so you can still internet it up. The rooms are small, but perfect. Nice kitchen area to cook meals. The restraint... More

Great place to stay. Nothing better then a soak in my private hot tub after a long day of killing varmint and drinking. Highly recommend if you're in the Cedarville. The staff is attentive and most folk in town are very kind.

This is the third time I've stayed at the hot springs during the Surprise Valley Writers Conference. I don't get migraines when I stay there like I used to at the J n' R. While my room (00 or 13, depending on whether or not you're superstitious) could have used detailing (cleaning ceilings, baseboards, etc.) everything was sanitary. It is... More

This is a very isolated spot in the Northern Ca. Nevada, Oregon area, not too far from Gerlach Nv. where The Burning Man Festival is at. This a small resort that has its own Geo-thermal Spring. Geologists go their to study how to turn the Hot water into energy. Each unit has its own controllable in ground hot tub. Very... More

We stumbled on this place after driving 6.5 hours to look at an Airstream trailer nearby. We drove up, and the very pleasant front desk clerk (Jenny) showed us a number of rooms that were available before we chose. This place is totally cool. Every room has its own private, enclosed hot tub in a rear patio. The tubs are... More
