This cute little inn is tucked away in the center of lava hot springs. From the owner and everyone that worked there was extremely friendly and helpful. VERY clean, and cozy! This is the only place I'll ever stay when visiting Lava Hot Springs!!!

I've stayed here a couple times, and it's charming and well appointed. It's run by really nice folks who will take good care of you. On my first visit we wanted to float the river in the morning and they let us check out late. The rooms are small, but the decor gives it a cozy rather than cramped feel.... More

very friendly staff, well taken care of grounds and buildings, it is off the beaten path a little but in lava hot springs, the whole town is off the beaten path ! Dinnah was extremely helpful, it is close to everything you need or want to get to. Some of the places in Lava are sort of scary..this place is... More

The Alpaca Inn is fabulous. The location is great. It's very close to two of the best restaurants in town and the grocery store. The inn is very clean and updated, one of the nicest places in town. The service provided to us was exceptional. We'll definitely be back.

This is a great, clean motel in the heart of Lava Springs. It is an easy walk to the hot springs, and all the amenities this little town affords. The rooms were very clean, though small and a little "tight". I might have given this 5 stars, but the wifi was very weak and slow. They have great Alpaca items... More

My husband and I booked a weekend here, the service was amazing from the beginning to the end of our stay. The room was decorated beautifully. We were thrilled when we walked in and really didn't want to leave. This is my favorite place to stay in Lava Hot Springs.

Clean rooms with a friendly staff. Close to everything. Have stayed in different rooms and have always enjoyed a lovely stay each time. Our family really enjoyed the cottage. Many thanks to Dinna for her recommendations. So happy.

Loved our little room here. Decorated very nicely. Homey and comfortable. The TV was not the best ever and the WiFi was iffy, but not a big deal for one night's stay. You have to watch your step in this room because of a few tricky steps. I especially liked the nook with the table and chairs. Great ambiance!

My dad booked this hotel for a family vacation with me and my siblings right after Christmas as a gift. We arrived three hours early and had no problem checking in early. We changed right into our suits and went to the local hot springs, less than a mile down the road. After soaking, we were easily able to walk... More
