My girlfriend and I both love spas so we decided to spend the night here after going to Hoh rainforest. Having spend to much time in the rainforest we arrived around 7 pm, leaving us only 1 hour to get dinner since in October everything (including the springs) closes at 8pm. The dinner was really good, and it was ok priced (you pay a little more then you would in a city, but you expect that). Breakfast buffet is included in your stay, and it is delicious. You also have a little store in this building (which also serves as the check-in), you can buy snacks and drinks here that are on the surprisingly cheap side, and of course the souvenirs are overpriced. And for those that have a US State park passport, you can get your stamp here.
If you didn't bring your own entertainment you can get boardgames, and you will need them since after 8PM there is -nothing- to do in this resort.
All 'bedrooms' here are cabins, you have cabins with kitchens (which cost a little more) and there are cabins without. We stayed in a 1 kingsized bedroom without kitchen cabin. We ordered this trough the internet which ended up being cheaper then what the people at the phone could give us. The cabin was spacey, clean and comfortable. The bed was fantastic and we had a good time here. Since the cabins have no phone, internet or television you are required to bring your own entertainment for the evening, be prepared.
The springs are clean, but old. Some of the tiles were missing. They of course have the typical sulfur smell and the water feels silky. I personally liked the medium warmth bath (closest to the building) while my girlfriend liked the hottest one. There is also a cold swimming pool but I would not advice it in October since it is environment temperature.
I think if they should add phones and internet connections to the cabins (and it is possible since they can check credit cards and have payphones) and renew the springs. If they do this it would be worth the money. Right now though I personally think they are overpriced and would suggest staying in a camping ground nearby and just pay for the springs.
