I don't mind eclectic. I don't mind older structures, but I do expect them to be kept up. I don't even mind the thin walls. But when I stay in a hotel for $200 per night, I don't expect them. I also don't expect very very VERY old and cheap sheets or to be woken up by beetle looking things... More

My husband took me for an overnight stay and wanted it to be special. I have always enjoyed their mineral pools so he thought it would be nice for us to stay in the spa house. Our room was $170 for a Friday night and the place was not at all busy. We had a heart shaped hot tub but... More

We won a free night stay from a travel expo to Lava Hot Springs Inn. This is by far the dumpiest, disgusting, rip-off hotel I've ever stayed in. We checked in at 5:45pm on a Friday and we ended up checking out by 11:45pm that same night. The room was a 8'x8' box with a double bed with second hand... More

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...
