Price was reasonable and the decor was nice. Place was clean and well kept. Had issues with the Wifi but that was it. Just an FYI for potential visitors to Lava - there is no cell service for many providers - we have Sprint. As we had no cell service and there are no phones in the room we could... More

My husband surprised me with a romantic weekend at The Alpaca Inn. This Beautiful Quaint Inn was perfect. We stayed in room #8 which had the most amazing decorations. They had 3 types of pillows in each room to ensure each guest is comfortable. The grounds are stunning, beautiful flowers, nice grassy areas and a bbq. Minutes away from the... More

This is a nice place with choices ranging from Queen rooms to a cottage that sleeps a family. They are expanding and adding another 4 rooms. The receptionist is exuberant, the lobby is filled with alpaca hats, reasonably priced scarves, and rugs for sale. The rooms are decorated exclusively with pictures of Alpaca and rugs woven from them. You can... More

This place has the BEST customer service. We were greeted upon arrival and shown our room. The rooms are cozy, clean, and well decorated/supplied. The middle courtyard was an excellent place to relax and enjoy company. We had a plumbing issue during our stay, but the owners went above and beyond to take care of the issue same day and... More

This grouping of individual rooms surrounding a quiet garden is very cute and much better than any chain hotel room. The service is wonderful and overall, there's a very warm and welcoming vibe. You can tell a lot of thought and care has gone into this place.

Friendly and cozy! The rooms are warm & inviting! I prefer the individual entrance to the typical hotel hallway and punch code entry! Have stayed here the two times I have visited Lava Hot Springs and wouldn't consider other lodging....why? Thank you for your hospitality!

What a lovely gem the Alpaca Inn is! We stayed in spacious, cozily decorated and ultra clean room #3. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful and very accommodating to our travel plans. Check-in is a breeze, even when it's late in the day. Thank you! I'll be back.

We had a wonderful experience at the Alpaca Inn. We just wanted a getaway for the weekend and Lava Hot Springs was our answer. It was small, quiet, fun to walk around, and had some great hot springs for enjoyment! I browsed through websites for a place to stay and came across the Alpaca Inn. It looked well-kept and cozy...

Stayed here for the weekend in room #3 it was very large. More room then we needed for us. There is two beds, a full refrigerator and the rest of the usual amenities. This room is perfect for larger family. The owners are very flexible without time.

I did something that I never...ever do! I showed up to a hotel without reservations! Did you just gasp? Well, I did! However, a quick call later and I had a room! They only had two queen beds available...which I get for not making a reservation in advance. I chose the Alpaca specifically because if it's rating on TripAdvisor. Lava... More
