I've been staying at the Lava Spa Motel for years. It was always plain, old and trapped in the past. But most of the motels/hotels in Lava Hot Springs are like this. But this time when we visited they had replaced all the beds with Kings (a first for Lava Springs motels) new LCD TV's and remodelled bathrooms with new... More

Staff was very kind and accommodating. The room was very cute and nice and especially for the price, better than expected. I liked the stone wall around the bath. Bed super cozy. Perfect location. I feel like I got the best deal in town.

It's an older hotel that needs some sprucing up, carpets and doors and property need some up keep. Our room was back of the hotel itself the room was ok..not super clean. The showers downstairs were good. The breakfast in the morning was a nice compliment. We asked to check out an hour later than 11 and were told no,... More

They were really nice about things, made it easy to get in and get in bed. Thank You. Plus they are very close to the hot springs we... More

Family and friends stayed at the RV Park. Great place next to river, close to springs, walk downtown, etc I would recommend this RV park to anyone. This town is old home, small town, relaxing place. If your looking to relax and kick back, this is a great place... If your looking for the 5 star catering, over dressing everyone,... More

Was tired, hungrey, and anxious to go to the Springs, so I just opened the door, took in our luggage and left. Upon returning and going into the bathroom, there was a bad odor. Turned out the toilet was fairly new, but was loose on the floor. It stank! Then there was the matter of filthy carpet when I turned... More

We just arrived to Lava Spa Motel & RV Park and well with a big RV you do not need anything else but the full hookup (especially if you arrive at evening for a sleepover)! We took the pull through site for $30 as I really do not care about the river or else (those sites are available for $40)... More

They don't keep track of reservations at all. I had mine booked for 8 months and when it was time to start our vacation, I was told we weren't on the calendar. Since they do not take deposits or give confirmation numbers, we were out of luck. They definitely need to come into the 20th century and computerize reservations.

This is a old facility that you can tell the owners have tried to fix up. They have done well in some areas. I noticed a fairly new bathroom window and the spa tub in the room along with the tiling around it looked modern. Had new comforter set on the bed. In need of new doors on the rooms.... More
