Restaurant great, food lovely, staff friendly. Hotel .... Tired, rotting wood around windows especially in hot pool area ,lumpy mattress, strange smelling carpet which made whole room smell. Would have asked to change rooms if staying longer. It could be so good with some refurbishment, it has so much going for it

We came from Yellowstone and stopped by on our way to Bryce. The hot springs really healed us from our tiredness from camping for 3 days. The hotel was over 100 years old. We got a small room with shared bathroom. Bed was comfortable. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Wifi slow. Well decorated and they even have a...

A state-of-the-art gem when it was built 100 years ago, this hotel retains much of its charm and purpose. We enjoyed the very good public spaces and extensive continental breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful and enjoyed our small dog. Rooms were decorated appropriate to the period. I agree with other reviewers that if you want a European-style hotel this...

We love staying in places with character, and Riverside certainly has it. The hot pools are wonderful, although the outdoor one feels like a hot tub. The room and bed were very comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. There is a train that passes by frequently but it's not too terribly annoying. Very close to the public hot...

If you've traveled in Europe, you'll love this place. If your travel experiences are dominated by Holiday Inn or Comfort Inn, this might not be your cup of tea. The doors and jams are mahogany, cut glass in may of the common area windows, and the veranda at the back looking at the river are all straight out of a...

As many of said, the staff here is so friendly and the place is kept neat and tidy. My review reflects what I feel was an overpriced room ($119/night) for what we got. Granted, we were in a pet room, I was really grossed out by the carpet stains. And little things--like cotton wedged into the windowsill to block the...

We recently stayed at the Riverside Hot Springs INN with our small dog. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in a very nice corner room with a king size bed. The inn is very rustic. We used the private mineral hot baths twice and very much enjoyed them, we even got big fluffy towels and bathrobes to...

I was very satisfied with my stay. I did several soaks in the mineral tubs and had a very relaxing massage. I was so impressed I changed my plans and stayed an extra night. The restaurant had an excellent Gourmet Chef and menu.

If you have ever been to Lava Hot Springs then you know that there simply aren't any exceptional hotels here. The Riverside Hot Springs Inn is an old but quirky hotel. The staff is great and very accommodating. The rooms are something out of the old west with transoms over the doors and creaky floors. If you want luxury, go...

Love the place, because of the history but i love it more for the gourmet food we got to eat and the friendly staff. The private hot spring rooms are awesome, I love the privacy. I recommended this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing experience.
