We were in town for a wedding and completely enjoyed out stay! This was our 2nd time staying here and will certainly stay again. The negative comments above must be for a different hotel as this one is top notch. The Home Hotel is quaint, clean, has very comfortable beds and a 2 person tub to die for. What more... More

I recently stayed at the Home Hotel with my family and it was a great experience. The rooms are beautiful and so clean. I love the huge tubs! The staff were so nice and very helpful. I would absolutely stay here again and will recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone.

There is only one way to say this - it was so bad that it was actually comical. The children will remind me forever of the night we spent at Home Hotel. Not only was it dirty, it was akin to a shed. The decor was from the 1970's and the water from the bathroom spelt bad. It was noisy,... More

Absolutely not! We arrived looking forward to a nice cozy rest in the historically made out hotel from 1918. I don't think the hotel had been cleaned or updated since 1918. Our rooms were so smelly, filthy, blood and body hairs inside the bed with tiny insects, holes in the sheets, floors dirty with dead bugs and spiders crawling over... More

Delightful front desk staff who were very kind and helpful. Clean and comfortable rooms with a fine king-size bed and very nice decor. Good wifi. Perfect location next door to the hot springs. As this is summer, the room was rather warm at night. The air conditioner would have helped but when we turned it on it had a musty... More

We were very disappointed in our room, desk service, and maid service. Lava is a beautiful resort but the owners or managers of the Home hotel think you will pay any price to be there but they dont appreciate their guests. What a shame. Our toilet was dirty and desk wouldnt even give us tools to clean it oyrselves. Never... More

I am sincerely sorry for your bad experience, and I thank you for taking the time to tell us about it. It would be really helpful for us if we could learn more about what happened. I wonder if you wouldn't mind contacting me (the owner): scott@homehotel.com. If possible, I would like to correct whatever went wrong at the hotel.... More

Great place to stay, great people to deal with. Rooms are clean and updated. Close to everything that Lava has to offer. This is yearly thing with my family and we would not stay anywhere else. They go out of their way to be helpful.

This is our second time staying at the Home Hotel. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Loved the BIG tub. Everything is walking distance and easy to get too. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

The room was set up perfectly for maximum space! The hotel was on the Main Street which made everything easy access! Definitely recommend staying here! The owner takes great pride in everything! She even waters her own flowers every day!

We had such a good time at the Home Hotel, as usual. The service was great, and just the room and everything was top notch! Of course, we went tubing all day, but that just added to the experience. The room and kitchenette were great, we will be back!
