I have stayed at this Inn several times and hope to be staying there again in the next few weeks. It is quiet, comfortable and nostalgic. I am never disappointed in the friendly staff or terrific breakfast. In responce to Mr. "L"s review, well, I don't believe he actually stayed there! If he had, he would have enjoyed the privacy...

Just got back from another overnight stay at the Inn. This time, we finally got to sit in the pools while it was actually snowing. The timing was just right. I've stayed in the Aladdin rooms when we have larger groups, but the 'basic' rooms are perfect for couples. I stayed there in November (just one room) and this time... More

I and my girlfriend took an impromptu trip to Lava Hot Springs, Idaho from Salt Lake City in November, 2013. We didn't book a reservation ahead of time, so we stopped in at the LHSI to see what they had to offer. Objectively, I can tell you that I wouldn't consider staying even one night in this property (main building)... More

This is our fourth response to "Iskinaked's" criticism of our Inn. Our responses have led to three removals of this criticism followed by reinstatement by TripAdvisor. Mr. Naked does not follow the guidelines for Travelers' Reviews posted on TripAdvisor's website. For example, he had no first hand experience with any of our rooms. He did not ask for rates or...

If you're looking for a 5 star hotel with your bed turned down every night, you're in the wrong place. If you want friendly service, a comfy bed, and the best pools in town, lava hot springs inn is it! Funky place in a funky town, wouldn't stay any where else! And The breakfast is amazing!

This was a most amazing experience. We had made reservations for a Wednesday night and then I had injured my hip and the Dr. wanted to see me for one more visit. I called and Elizabeth was so kind and compassionate to me. She changed the reservation to Friday with no problem. Because of my hip and my husband's bad... More

Nice hotel -- in need of some repair, but evidence exists that says they are gradually updating. Pools are wonderful -- clean, hot (99ish to 108ish). Large pool great for staying in for long periods as it is not too hot. Additional pools behind the main lodge building. Also, they are building an additional pool along the river (very nice... More

The staff is very friendly and accomodating. We like that this place is down to earth and a place you can relax and become one with nature. It gets old to have everything big, new and cold. I hope Lava never gets any of the big chain hotels. It feels fantastic to go to a place where you only have... More
