Decided to buy myself a night in Lava, and this inn was the perfect place for me to be. The spas are private and the temperature was right. My room had a delightful view of the Portneuf River, Oregon Trail, and was within walking distance of everything I wanted to do. Friendly and helpful staff.

I really enjoyed pretty much everything about this quaint, historic hotel. Liz, who took my reservation was very thorough and even called me back to get our drink vouchers ready. They did give us a great room rate in honor of Veteran's Day. My chief complaint is that we were placed near the front desk where I had to go... More
