If you're looking for high class and opulence, look elsewhere--but if you're looking for a hole-in-the-wall historic getaway, this is your place. We loved the basic but timeless furnishings, the complimentary breakfast, and the relaxing hot springs. We'll be back!

This was the most amazing stay and everyone at the hotel and restaurant made me feel so welcome like I was at home with family. For someone who is never able to relax or sleep at most hotels, I was relaxed and slept so well. The food by the two chef's, Alonzo and Paul, was outstanding. The Bison Ribeye was...

It was our first visit to the Riverside Inn, and it WON"T be our last. Liz, the hotel manager made our stay perfect. Our King room was lovely and the hot springs were as well. The robes are a nice touch.

The clerk that checked us in was friendly. We are in our sixties and wished a staff member would have helped us carry our luggage up the flights of stairs. When we entered our room it smelled like it was fumigated that day. The window was open so we left it that way even though the outside temperature was about...

Thank you so much for staying with us and for your comments. We are sorry that we did not offer to carry your luggage upstairs, but please note that we are always happy to do so. All of our hot tubs are drained and scrubbed each night for cleanliness, however with that being said, the dark spots that you noticed...

We stayed at the riverside inn once we showed up both of us commented on the fantastic home town feel and rustic feel of the whole building. The staff was friendly and helpful with anything we needed. Beautiful views and gorgeous private pools to soak in.

This Inn had nice clean rooms. The staff was friendly and helpful. The gourmet dining was a great temptation, but we were unable to take advantage. The weekend breakfast buffet was excellent! Private, indoor soaking tubs - GREAT!

After staying in a number of the Lava Hot Springs hotel/motels, we've found the Riverside Inn to be the perfect place for us! From the friendly staff to the quaint rooms to the great room and the Portneuf Restaurant and Lounge, it has all we need and more. The front porch overlooking the Portneuf River is a great place to...

We stayed at the Riverside Hot Springs Inn quite by accident due to a car problem. What a beautiful old historical hotel. It is also very dog friendly. We ate in the restaurant and the chef/tender was very friendly and accommodating; he even has vegan entrees. We also really enjoyed the private mineral hot springs baths. The staff are extremely...

I've been going to Lava Hot Springs for over 20 years. I've stayed in a variety of lodging but just stayed in the Riverside Hot Springs in for the first time. I have to say it's been my nicest stay.

Steven, we appreciate all of your thoughtful comments on the Riverside Hot Springs Inn! We are happy you had the opportunity to stay with us - gosh, your first visit to the Inn after 20 years of visiting Lava Hot Springs! Although centrally located, we are a bit hidden, so sometimes we don't get discovered right away. We do hope...

Just spent a cold weekend in Riverside Inn in Lava Hot Springs. This lovely old hotel is the best get away in the winter. A short drive from SLC and you have everything you need under the same roof. Big cozy room, great indoor soaking tubs, good dining, massages. Add a friendly staff and you're good to go.
