Amazing how these reviews are so subjective one reviewer complained about how dirty the pools were well during our stay they were squeaky clean and we were informed and witnessed that two pools were drained and cleaned each night. We stayed in the Blue House which was a two bedroom apartment with a kitchen and cooking utensils. the entire property... More

10$ to hang out all day. Locally owned. No crowds. I didn't stay at the hotel. I just used the spring pools. Shady spots for when the sun is shining too. We had a great time and want to go again. For sure.

This place was awful. It's old and run down, it smells weird. It was so dark in the room it couldn't tell you of it was clean. The bed was so uncomfortable my back aches the next day. The room was tiny, there was barely any room to walk around the bed. And the walls were so thin we stayed... More

The inn has lots of character and an outstanding breakfast. We opted to stay in a room with en-suite facilities but a toilet actually in the bedroom is not really my choice. We had a jacuzzi bath but no shower, so used the one in the shared bathroom next door. The main reason for staying here besides the brilliant breakfast,... More

This is a hidden gem. I stumbled in tired and hungry. This place had a very relaxing atmosphere and amazing chef. I was taken a back with the nice people and comfort of everything. I cannot say enough nice things you'll love this place and again if your hungry, don't meds out beat food in town!

My family stayed in the Blue Hotel; very run down and in need of repair. The mattresses were terrible, very hard and springs sticking in your back. I do like eclectic décor but this was more like garage sale furniture in need of repair and paint. They need to update their website pictures so you can see what this place... More

Our Granddaughter chose to go to Lava for her graduation trip. We stayed at the Aladdin upstairs. Our bathroom was across the hall, it was so fabulous. A little Aladdin door that stepped down into a fun bathroom. Jacuzzi tub, double sinks and cute decor. It was very warm in the evening so I recommend leaving the windows open. Our... More

The place is old, like ancient native american healing grounds, and 1930's brick hospital. Some say it's haunted with friendly ghosts. No doubt the entire property is in need of work. One of my bed lamps had exposed wires and a broken top so the bulb hung down, there are cats around and the dining hall had a smell of... More

The hot spring pools are nice but the mattress needs to be replaced - had absolutely no support. We woke up with our backs in pain. Of course we only got 6 hours of sleep because the walls are so paper thin we could hear the 3 girls next to us ordering pizza and talking - I could recite her... More
