To my surprise I was very disappointed with our stay last night. We stayed in the cape cod house. We were traveling with our children and the floors were so creaky that every time I got up to make a bottle, everyone in the whole house woke up. Also I was very creeped out while I was making the bottle... More

Lava Hot Springs is a quite little town based around the hot springs. The owner (Kathy) was super nice and as helpful as you could be on where to eat, providing a few things I forgot, etc. The room was recently redone and nice. Bed was comfortable and the private hot spring right by the river was clean and nice.... More

Me, my wife and our 2 year old made the little trek up from SLC and we have stayed at several places in Lava and have now found the best. Their private pool was a wonderful, relaxing and quiet place to both relax and play. The price and pool was not the only thing that will bring us back. The... More

We have stayed in the Chalet house several times over the past 10 years. It is beginning to show signs of poor maintenance. The bathtub wouldn't turn completely off, the blinds are all falling apart, the dishwasher works poorly. It is an old, quaint home, converted into lodging space and I don't expect 5 stars, but for the price, some... More

Rooms have been recently remodeled and are genuinely nice. The bathroom setup is awkward as there is no shower but a giant jacuzzi tub with a sprayer. The toilet is located in a closet with no ventilation and carpet on the floor. Someone just needed to think this through a bit. Little parking. If only someone could have silenced the... More

Rooms are small, but the hot pool outside makes up for anything. The owners made a small mistake on our booking and made up for it with a chocolate bar. In my opinion, anything can be mended with chocolate! We will definitely be back to this place soon!

This was our fist stay....we have stayed at several other Lava hotels. Hands down, cleanest, nicest place in town for the price! We really enjoyed the hot pool out back, so convenient! We will be back soon! (You should really try the dark chocolate they sell in the office, yummy!)

Always a great time in Lava! The house we stayed in was very clean and had everything we needed plenty of comfortable beds fully stocked kitchen, fridge, microwave, coffee maker and plenty of bathrooms (which is great when you have several ladies in one place) We will return Love Lava

Everything was nice and clean, loved the chenille bedspreads. Room was really small, and although access to rear parking lot was nice, I was a bit uncomfortable with the not so sturdy exit door in the bathroom, a dead-bolt lock would be better than the lightweight doorknob lock. A bit less furniture would make the room seem bigger, a smaller... More
