All of Lava Hot Springs is a funky little town, so I use that term endearingly. I can't say enough about how nice the people are at the Home Hotel. We arrived several hours before check-in time, and they scurried to get our rooms ready ASAP, and seemed truly happy to be giving us good service.
We booked two small "courtyard" rooms, which were actually on the lower level of the motel rather than in the main hotel building. That was fine because we were able to park right outside the rooms. These rooms were very tiny, which was fully disclosed on the website and which is why we got two rooms. Although small, the rooms were well equipped (except for a hair dryer) and nicely decorated. My room seemed as though it might have been more recently remodeled than my friend's room in that it had a newer and much quieter air conditioner and the shower seemed to have newer hardware.
Although we didn't really have a patio or courtyard, we had a table and chairs on the walkway outside our rooms, and it was very pleasant sitting there with some snacks and wine in the evening as the little town folded up for the night.
Staying at the Home Hotel was a good experience. It's just a short walk to the hot springs facility, so that's an extra bonus. I would recommend this hotel to friends and look forward to staying here again next time I visit Lava Hot Springs.
