When we stay at a $40.00 room we expect $40.00 amenities. And when we stay at a room that runs $140.00 per night, we expect much more. We stayed in the Aladdin #5. First thing you notice is a very squeaky floor and large cracks in the ceiling. Then you notice that when you sit on the commode your knees... More

Really, it wasn't quite that bad but kind of. We stayed here in July 2014 for one night during the week. The hot springs pools were fantastic, older but really nice waters. The room on the other hand was something else. Let's start with the fact that they all don't have their own bathrooms, so most of the rooms share... More

We stayed in the Alladin....a block away from the main hotel. We had to walk through a laundry room to get to our room. The room had an emergency back door that had 3 locks, only the chain worked, the other 2 did not. The A/C ran 24/7 as it just couldn't keep up with the heat. There were bugs... More

My family and I rented the Cowlishaw apartments over the fourth of July weekend and the entire stay was excellent. We had the entire building along with the fenced in backyard which was great for BBQ's, the apartments were very well appointed with everything you could possibly need, nice comfortable bedrooms with air conditioning, a full kitchen with utensils, plates...

Sometimes in life, a person happens to fall upon some "luck," and that is exactly what happened to me by finding this Inn. My friend and I came to the area for a cycling event and agreed that soaking in hot pools after riding 100 miles would be relaxing and soothing. We were correct---but it wasn't just the pools that...

The building was an old hospital and makes a quaint and interesting inn. The little Inn had sweet affordable accommodations. The staff were delightful, and the breakfast, superb. All of this amidst several outdoor hot pools of different temperatures. What's not to like? .

I love Lava Hot Springs Inn. If you are expecting the Ritz, you aren't going to be happy here (or anywhere in Lava probably!) but if you come expecting a eclectic, quirky and quaint place, you will be a fan for life. First of all, I've never stayed in the actual hotel, so I can't say how the rooms are,... More

It has been a long time since I have left a review and am petrified to leave one about this hotel. I see that the management really takes the time to respond to every comment and is almost argumentative. Which is a turn off. The pools at the hotel are awesome! My husband and I actually enjoyed them more than... More

I am glad to hear that you had a great experience with our mineral hot springs. It is unfortunate that you did not feel that same experience with your room. A basic room is designed to be a simple, inexpensive option for those people who will be spending the majority of their time in the pools. I wish you would've... More
