I booked the Hot Springs Inn for one night after reading many great reviews on Trip Advisor. I can't say enough good things about our experience at this hotel! After staying in several "decent but nothing special" hotels during a family road trip, our expectations were pleasantly exceeded here.
Front desk staff were very friendly and extremely helpful upon check in, they took time to show me good restaurants and recommended hikes on the local map. I had requested a room on second floor and sure enough, we ended up with corner room 201 overlooking the river. The room was perfect, two comfortable King beds, a fireplace, sitting area for happy hour, nice sized balcony, excellent shower, ceiling fan, fridge, and microwave in addition to coffee maker. The best part of all was the fact that we could open our windows wide for a gentle nighttime breeze and to listen to the rushing river right outside.
We decided to grill instead of eating out, and the Hot Springs Inn has a nice area with two grills, a huge 4-person glider swing, picnic table, and adirondack chairs so you can enjoy sitting around while using the grill next to the river. (Be aware: the only grocery store in town, Duckett's, closes at 6 pm so you have to plan ahead.)
Laundry facilities are onsite, and you use your room key to access them in the main building. The front desk can give you change for the coin operated machines.
Our room was spotless and the grounds were well-kept. The exterior of the buildings and main office look a bit outdated, like old Swiss wannabes, but inside the decor was fun and modern. Free continental breakfast is served in the main building, and free WiFi that worked well.
Again, can't say enough good things - wish we could have stayed several nights. Will definitely return.
