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

We loved staying here. The lady at the checkin office was so kind and welcoming. The rooms were clean and we were well taken care of. I would definitely recommend staying at the Alpaca Inn. We will be back next time we visit the Hot Springs.

Stayed in their private 'Cottage' with the family. Has sleeping for eight. Two queens and two fold out beds, full size fridge, oven, microwave. The manager was very helpful and courteous. Was looking around at many places and found the Alpaca Inn online with great reviews. After staying I can see why. Well worth the money! Only slight issue is... More

The inn sits half a block off Main Street and offers cozy, clean rooms. The beds were acceptable, and the woman at the front desk was friendly, offering extra towels, coffee and tea. Decor is all things alpaca, as the owners have an alpaca farm a few miles out of town. Our bathroom was compact and low-ceilinged. We discovered that... More
