I stayed at Riverside Inn last Thursday. I stay here every time I go to Lava because it is a charming, well kept place right in the middle of town, in walking distance of all restaurants, pool, tubing, and town hot springs. It is always clean, the employees are beyond friendly and helpful, it has its own restaurant and bar... More

We love this historic old hotel. The charm is everywhere. The overall feel is similar to a bed and breakfast and/or Inn from a century ago. I especially love the windows above each door into the rooms and can just picture Teddy Roosevelt (we stayed in his room last time we were here) enjoying his "usual" room. The staff are... More

This is an awesome place to stay, yes the outside is in need of a little "tlc" but they are working on it. The inside is wonderful, a 102 yr old building. Our room was beautiful, roomy, cool, quiet....the restaurant and bar..5 star. We sat in the bar and the Executive Chef mixed wonderful drinks, he went over the whole... More

Found this hotel through Trip Advisor and made a reservation. My daughter and I loved the whole experience of staying in a historic hotel and having the opportunity to soak in one of several mineral baths. Bill checked us in the hotel and gave us all of the information to enjoy our stay. In the morning we had a continental... More

Looks a little worn from the outside but this is an amazing place to stay. Lovely old building, with friendly staff and hot springs on site. Rooms are right on the river, so the rushing waters can lull you to sleep. Handy to everything in town. Had a great time here.

We have been to Lava before, but always with our children and camping. We have always wanted to visit without our children, and to experience the hot springs there. We decided my birthday would be a great opportunity. When we arrived at the hotel we were pleasantly surprised. It is a quaint place, we had a nice spacious room and... More

Yes it's old and a bit rundown. The rooms are large and mine was very clean (this has been a criticism in other reviews). The staff was very friendly. The indoor saunas are a somewhat decrepit, but the inn is close to the community spa and pool. I did not eat in the restaurant, so can't comment on that. The... More

Thank you for your comments and for staying with us. Yes, the new carpeting is now installed in the hallways and stairways. It looks great! In addition, most (16 out of 18) of the guest room floors have been restored to the original wood floors and are graced with beautiful wool area carpets. We keep making improvements, so we do...

I stayed a night at riverside to break up a long drive from southern Utah to montana. The corner room had two windows, so I fell asleep to the sound of the running water in creek. The hotel is older, but is clean, charming and had friendly staff. I would definitely stay here again!

Very nice older hotel. They were working on the floors in the hallway, but the rooms were all completed. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Food was great! Chef Alanzo was fantastic. The private spa pools were perfect. Finally the couples massage was amazing. We will return.
