The building was an old hospital and makes a quaint and interesting inn. The little Inn had sweet affordable accommodations. The staff were delightful, and the breakfast, superb. All of this amidst several outdoor hot pools of different temperatures. What's not to like? .

I love Lava Hot Springs Inn. If you are expecting the Ritz, you aren't going to be happy here (or anywhere in Lava probably!) but if you come expecting a eclectic, quirky and quaint place, you will be a fan for life. First of all, I've never stayed in the actual hotel, so I can't say how the rooms are,...

Thank you so much for your great review. We try to keep the Inn historic and unique, at the same time modern and updated.

It has been a long time since I have left a review and am petrified to leave one about this hotel. I see that the management really takes the time to respond to every comment and is almost argumentative. Which is a turn off. The pools at the hotel are awesome! My husband and I actually enjoyed them more than...

I am glad to hear that you had a great experience with our mineral hot springs. It is unfortunate that you did not feel that same experience with your room. A basic room is designed to be a simple, inexpensive option for those people who will be spending the majority of their time in the pools. I wish you would've...

Just got back from another overnight stay at the Inn. This time, we finally got to sit in the pools while it was actually snowing. The timing was just right.
