We have stayed at this hotel about a half dozen times over as many years. It has changed owners at least once, maybe twice. It is a charming historical hotel that has generally been nicely upgraded. It has a lovely stairway and upstairs library, and the rooms are cute. It's a bit worn around the edges, the carpet could stand an upgrade, there are dings and bangs on the walls, but the staff is nice and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It is within short walking distance to the state-run hot pools, which is another reason we like it so much. It has its own pools downstairs. They seem to be upgrading them with new tile, walls, etc., which is good because they have previously been fairly grungy. The restaurant is perfectly good, a bit pricey, but you don't have many other options in Lava Hot Springs. All in all, we consistently return to this hotel for its relaxed and unpretentious charm, and we hope they continue to make little upgrades and keep it running for years to come.
