“Total immersion refreshment.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Imagine staying in a cabin in the forest with a river full of wild salmon nearby. There is no telephone, no tv, and no Internet. Even your cell phone doesn't work! You can go for a beautiful hike in the woods and see rainbows over waterfalls, or just relax under a tree with a book. Under that tree you can enjoy the absence of artificial sounds and, if you are lucky, even see an eagle soaring. Unlimited use of the hot springs is free with the cabin and you will love relaxing in that hot, sulpherous water. There is also an enormous swimming pool and massages by appointment. The restaurant is expensive but well worth it when you order grilled salmon and a glass of wine. Along the road in and out of the park you can sometimes stop and see salmon spawning or beavers busily doing whatever it is that beavers do. You will not want to return to civilization in a hurry.

Room Tip: Any cabin is good but you might prefer a view of the river.

We only stayed one night but it was well worth it. The unlimited use of the springs (open from 9am to 9pm) and the beautiful surroundings made this a night to remember. We had a cabin.The cabins have no air conditioning but do have heat and a coffee maker. No TV, phone service or internet make for a very relaxing evening. Listening to nature, this was the best nights sleep I have ever had. The lodge does not open until 7am and there are no refrigerators in the cabins The breakfast in the lodge (at 7 o"clock) was very good.

Room Tip: If your someone arriving from a different time zone like us and wake at 4 or 5am bring something to...

Wow this place is awesome! Fantastic cabins on a lovely river. Beautiful hikes up to Mink lake & Sol Duc falls. Delightful relaxing in hot spring pools then swimming in the big cool pool to cool off with a little early June rain. Restaurant nice as well. Stayed 2 nights. Lovely drive. Would love to return in Autumn to see the salmon making their way back up the river to spawn.

No phones, no tv, and no internet. So quiet you can hear the river roar, birds flapping their wings. The hot springs are healing, both hot and cold. Massages are available by appointment. The resturaunt food is ecxcellent, albeit a little pricy. WE split the cost of a lovely cabin and the food. Hiking on the trails to waterfalls puts you in another world and fills you with electrifing mist. Right after Mothers day on the 14th of May is when we went. Not so crowded then. Go before school is out or after it starts. You will be back again and again. Peace

Room Tip: Rent a cabin by the river. Best sleep ever,

The ride into the hot springs was beautiful along a river and heavily forested. The Cabin we stayed was roomy for 3, overlooked the river and the main lodge and hot springs were a 5 minuet walk. The hot springs entry are free if you stay in a cabin. From here it is a 1 hour drive to the Hoh Rainforest. Coming in from the North you get to view the magnificent Crescent Lake. The restaurant was a tad expensive but the food was wonderful.

We stayed for two nights in May. Foremost, the Hotsprings are a long way from any town--the nearest being Port Angeles--so if you don't want to spend a lot of money at the restaurant and small store (which is only open until 9 pm), make sure you bring groceries. It was convenient to have a kitchen in our cabin. They supplied cooking utensils, plates and pans, etc. which is really helpful. This may sound silly to some, but there was no TV in the cabins. I don't even think there was one in the resort. They must have a difficult time getting service in the park. The cabins weren't as clean as they could be; dirty shower curtains and our dog immediately found an old razor on the ground. If you're a stickler for cleanliness, this place isn't for you. Fortunately, we're not too bad that way. We hiked a good way into the woods, which was beautiful. The hotsprings were a little crowded, but nice. Another tip: if you come into the park at a certain hour, you have to pay to enter it. If you don't have the discovery pass, it's an additional $15...even if you're staying at the resort! That's another way they monopolize the restaurant and food industry--if you happen to avoid paying the fee on the way in, if you leave and return at any point during your way (during certain hours), you have to pay the park fee. We used a promotional offer of $179/night, but to be honest, I thought it was too expensive for what we were getting. I would never pay full price.

As a child, our family would vacation here. That was back in the late 70's. Everything has changed, but that is not a bad thing. Love the new cabins (we stayed in 121) nice bedding, quiet and perfect for a get-away.

Tried to hike up to the lakes, but was stopped by snow. Hiked Lovers Lane Loop instead. The salmon jumping at the falls were incredible!

Hot springs were clean and very welcome after a day of hiking.

Hope to return someday.
