Historic Hotel

Posted Nov 5, 2017
Great staff. Great service. Great food! Great mineral baths...worth the trip just to soak in one of their 4 mineral baths. Historic ambiance. Needs some repairs but worth the visit! We will go again!

Beautiful Restored Hotel

Posted Oct 20, 2017
Pros: Soaking tubs, ambience
This was a pleasant surprise for us on our road trip. Upon checking in we were told about the hotel history, given great information on the area and hot springs. Definetly will be here again some day.

Unique and Charming

Posted Sep 3, 2017
Pros: charming, unique, romantic
Location: hot springs!
Why should you stay at some plastic cookie-cutter place when you could stay at this unique, charming, and retro hotel on the river? Stuffed buffalo and moose heads, spring-fed private healing hot springs, beautiful old style, plus comfortable mattress and bathroom? If you want to have a boring vacay, go ahead, but why not have an adventure and an experience instead? This is a lovely, magical place, and we will stay here again next time we're in this part of the world. True old world charm can still be found, thankfully.

Gem in Lava

Posted Aug 27, 2017
Charming old hotel. The rooms are clean, roomy and quiet. There is a fantastic restaurant downstairs. The breakfast (included in stay) on the weekends served in the restaurant is amazibf. The pastry chef Mary makes fabulous croissants and other delicious sweets. And the bacon! Wow. The hot tubs are a little dated but seem clean. The hotel offers bathrobes which is a nice touch.

Lava Layover

Posted Jul 22, 2017 on Hotels
Great hotel in downtown area of Lava Hot Springs. Nice job of renovation of the turn-of-century inn. GREAT food at the hotel for dinner, but helps to have reservation. Interesting area with rushing river running through town making tubing a nice cottage industry. Hot spring water in spa was really hot and not used due to heat of the day.

Hidden gem

Posted Jul 7, 2017 on Hotels
This is a very charming hotel. Teddy Roosevelt once stayed here, so, thay probably tells you its age. The staff has worked very hard to update this hotel, and continue to do so as there are a few things that need to be updated, such as the bathrooms, but overall, a nice experience. The best part about this place are the hot spring mineral batjs they have in the basement and outside. It is worth staying here for that alone.
