Me and a few of my friends recently stayed at the Lava Hot Springs Inn, at the Colinshaw 2. Check Inn was easy, and fast, and the staff, especially the owner were friendly and engaging. Breakfast was wonderful each day, homemade by George or another staff member. Greek eggs, Mexican egg and pepper scramble. Each day we sat and spoke... More

We have stopped here often on our way south from our home in Montana. It's the perfect respite. Awesome hot springs, great value, knockout breakfast, and friendly service. We will continue to frequent this jewel!

My husband and I were there this weekend for our anniversary. I wanted to surprise my husband and go to Lava which is where we met 11 years ago. I paid a lot of money for a spa room and walked into a tiny little room with no shower and a rock hard mattress. They heated the room with a... More

I am sorry that your anniversary weekend was not what you were hoping for. The Inn is a family oriented establishment. I'm just sorry that your stay was one that had too many kids when you were hoping for a romantic get away. More

This has to be the WORST hotel I have ever stayed in. We stayed in the Cottage at a whopping $149 for one night. The place hasn't been cleaned in probably a decade. The floor was so dirty I didn't want to walk barefoot. The blinds were caked in dirt, the curtains stained, the heater is probably from the 1940's... More

I am sorry that the cleanliness of your room was not what you felt it should be. We have an excellent housekeeping staff that does a great job. Most of the buildings in Lava are old and upkeep is always a challenge but we do strive to have clean rooms for our guests. I apologize for the bad experience you... More

There's nothing quite like waking up to the feeling of parasites crawling over your skin, drinking your blood and leaving you with dozens of furiously itchy bites. Sadly, this was our experience the first night we stayed at the Lava Hot Springs Inn on 11/15/14. I captured one of the bedbugs and showed it to the after-hours clerk at the... More

On behalf of the entire staff at LHSI, I would like to sincerely apologize for the horrifying experience you and your girlfriend had on 11/15/2014. If any of the staff seemed uncaring it was unintentional. This was a serious problem and was taken care of immediately. Serving our guests is what we do. Once again, I apologize for the bad... More

A sucker for ambiance, history, and charm, this place is a solid 8/10. I loved the 6 varied hot pools at night, lit by strings of lights providing lots of romance. The moon and the old tall trees made a wonderful garden setting. An old hospital turned hotel, it was endearing and low key. There are also rooms in several... More

I loved the well worn, yet clean and convenient accommodations. My boyfriend and I went there in late October 2014...very few folks around...it was great. I enjoyed the pools at night, the moon shining through the trees and the lights on the grounds giving the experience a romantic feel. I'm an artist so I want history, shadows of the past.... More
