This was a pretty gross experience! We were attracted by the motel's location across from Lava Hot Springs and the budget "sale" rate of $60/night. That was a huge mistake! About the only plusses were location, a comfortable bed (that seemed hastily made up), and in warmer weather, some picnic chairs out the back door near the creek. The negatives?...

This motel is a small and older hotel but worth staying in. I've stayed at this motel somewhere between 20 and 30 times and with one exception (which might have been a miscommunication on my side) I've had great stays. The river next door makes a pleasant sound to fall asleep to and with the hot springs literally across the...

Nice clean rooms on a gorgeous property with a beautiful River Run right behind every room. Lava Hot Springs public pools are directly across the street from the hotel. The hot springs have several pools of varying temperatures with Crystal Clear Spring Water and no sulfur smell.

Considering that this is a 2 star hotel, and not comparing it to the Ritz, it is what it is. An old building with a few recent updates. I have stayed here several times and have been happy with every visit. The beds are good and the sheets are clean. The rooms are a little dirty, but you get what...

The only thing going for this place is the location, which is right across from the Hot Pools and alongside the River. The walls are paper thin. The rooms are old and dirty and outdated. Kids run up and down the outside hallway/runway for hours. Loud Partiers stumble around outside. In the room next to ours, the people left a...

small motel in lava hot springs. i'm certain it was state of the art in 1905. lava hot springs is a place to be outdoors so the motel was just a place to sleep. it was fine. the only thing that made the wife unhappy was no maid service.

Great time to be had in this sleepy town. The people are friendly and accommodating. The springs around town are so relaxing. Great place to go to just chillax... Chuckwagons is the place to go for all your meals, they really treat you like family and the prices are easy on the wallet.

Pros: Check-in was very simple so that was nice. The location is great. Right on the river. There are little tables out on the grass and a back door out facing the river. Right across the street from the hot pools and walking distance to restaurants and bars. The gas fireplace was very nice. Liked having a fridge and microwave....
