The trip was an adventure so no regular hotel for my sister and me. This hotel was old but cared for. Our room was just across the hall from the bathroom which had a claw foot tub! A big breakfast is included in what resembles several hostels I have stayed in in Europe. The pools were interesting and very comfortable... More

My sister and I loved staying here. It was right in town, close to everything, and had several hot pools of varying temperatures situated throughout the property. We loved relaxing in the pools and listening to a live jazz orchestra play throughout the evening (on a Friday night). A small stream (with tubers floating by) runs right behind the property....

No AC (miserably hot in the room), bathrooms in room has a curtain for a door so forget about going number two unless you want to be covered in curtain while everyone in the room listens and watches. It's almost like the bathrooms they have in prisons but they made it a little better by putting a curtain in. Great... More

Heard this was a great place but it is anything but. The exterior is run down, maybe they think it's a patina? With the price charged you would expect they would put a little more into making the outside look fresh instead of the peeling paint. Fortunately, most of it is brick so that it doesn't require painting. STRIKE 1... More

This hotel used to be a hospital, it is old could be quaint but just falls so short. I was expecting a nice retreat where my husband and I could unwind and de-stress ... We had been looking forward to going for weeks and we finally got on the Goldwing and rode the 3 hours north to Lava Hot Springs... More

Reserved two rooms 3 months in advanced based upon this "Inn's" website. When I arrived, I was nervous because the location was not 'old' in a charming way but clearly run down. I mistakenly checked in without viewing the room. I was given disclaimers about alcohol, noise, pet fee, etc. and then showed my two rooms. There was no TV... More

We were looking for a place to get away for the weekend and had heard of Lava Hot Springs. I didn't want to be cheap about it, so I booked what I thought would be a premium room. Unfortunately, it seems as though the maintenance department is either on strike or has no idea about keeping an old property looking... More

My girlfriends and I decided to take a motorcycle ride over to Lava Hot Springs and we chose to stay here for the weekend. The staff were very welcoming and made our stay a real treat! Not only did we have nice clean rooms, we were treated to a delicious breakfast each morning and enjoyed the hot springs pools right... More

My friend and I spend a girls weekend up in Lava every year for the past 15 years and we always stay at the Inn. The room is comfortable and charming and the folks are friendly. The Inn itself is historic and although not modernized, does have internet access for those who simply can't disconnect. Relaxing in the hot pools... More
