“Love cabins in the rainforest & hot springs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

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.

We visited April 18-20, 2013. Our family (2 adults, an 11 year old) enjoyed our low key cabin at Sol Duc Hot Springs. The cabin had two large beds with nice linens and lots of pillows, a sofa, table and chairs, and a small bathroom - everything thing was perfectly fine. There was also a tiny closet, a nightstand, alarm clock, a couple lamps and mini-coffee maker. The heat in the room was adjustable and worked quite well. The room was just big enough for three people and our hiking gear but perfectly comfortable. We were in easy walking distance of the lodge. Meals were fine (of course they were a little pricey - we're in the middle of a national park, 12 miles plus from the main road) with a decent selection. The hot springs were wonderful - deliciously hot, with an ever hotter pool option steps away and a swimming pool (55 degrees??!!) steps beyond that. No one wanted to get out. We also took an easy hike to the beautiful waterfalls, and a day trip to Neah Bay and the Makah Reservation - we loved the museum there, one of the best small community museums we've ever seen. We also stopped at the Salmon Experience off the road to the lodge and saw salmon swimming and jumping upstream! Worth the price of admission.

Even the drive to this spot is to die for!Research and make other stops on the way here like stop by Hurricane Ridge on Olympic mountain etc. I lived in Washington for over 20 years and this spot remains special to me.
Remote spot surrounded by awesome rain forest, hiking trails, rivers and waterfalls and on-location hot springs is in the "must visit in your lifetime" list! Watched salmon jump up the rapids even when sign said that it was uncommon to see it anymore. Just be patient and keep looking at the rapids. You can fish without license in the park! Hikes are exceptional on any trail you pick (remember to apply bug repellent!)
Cabins are nice, bedding crispy clean, plenty of grass for kids to play on.
Check lodge menu to make sure it is affordable for your budget, or get a cabin with kitchen and bring your own food from Port Angelos, or bring portable cooking devises for outside cooking.
Will be coming back here again and again.
If you have not been here, I would strongly recommend to visit this Washington gem!!!
