Our room was spotlessly clean with nice bedding--very comfortable and provided much needed sleep. We thoroughly enjoyed the large 2-person tub which allowed us to be able to soak in the hot mineral water right in our room. The location of the hotel is very conveniently located in the middle of all the "action". We enjoyed being able to walk...

This place is fantastic!! Beds are super comfy. Tub is huge and new. Everything is clean. Plenty of towels. The little shampoos and lotions are great. Misty was super sweet and even let us check out the room before we committed to staying. From the outside, the place looks like an average motel. My husband usual prefers big fancy Hampton...

This is a lovely, historic building with beautifully remodeled rooms. The staff is absolutely wonderful. Just before we went home, we walked through the vacation house at the other end of the property because we want to bring the whole family next year. It's a nice house with a fenced yard. We didn't look inside the motel rooms in the...

This was one of the most enjoyable stays my wife and I have had in recent memory. The quaint and delightful hotel was just right ... very clean, comfortable and reasonable. The manager, Misty, made our stay perfect. She is the kind of manager you wish every hotel -- large and small -- would employ. She seemed to make her...

We stayed here for 2 nights for my boyfriends birthday. The service was ridiculously good. The hotel manager gave us recommendations for everything we could think of, was exceptionally polite and friendly like she actually wanted our business ( which has sadly become a thing of the past ) the room was clean and comfortable and exactly like the picture...

We have stayed a few places in Lava and this is now our go to Hotel. You have to understand Lava is a tiny town, there are no chain hotels and the whole town is a bit outdated. That being said, I give this hotel a 5, that might change if it were in a different city. We have only...

My wife and I stayed here at this location for our anniversary at the end of August, 2015. The hotel was nice. It is an older facility, and the carpet in the room could use a cleaning but overall we liked our stay. Overall the room was clean and the bed was nice. The service was good, the double-wide extra...

Clean. The folks at the front desk were friendly and helpful. One block walk to hot pools and dinner. Watch the Moon come up over the mountains from the hot pool. Very romantic. Took an early morning hike on Centenial trail to the top of the mountain overlooking the town and watched the sun come up. 800 ft straight up....

We were in town for a wedding and completely enjoyed out stay! This was our 2nd time staying here and will certainly stay again. The negative comments above must be for a different hotel as this one is top notch. The Home Hotel is quaint, clean, has very comfortable beds and a 2 person tub to die for. What more...
