Check Availability

“We love Lava and have stayed in several of the hotels/motels there. The Riverside Hot Springs Inn is the best for many reasons. First of all, Gail and her staff are the best! I stayed here with my dog while on business in nearby Soda Springs.The entrance is surrounded by lush landscaping,full of bulbs and blossoms. You are greeted by a grand staircase going up to the lobby or down to the gourmet restaurant, bar, massage rooms and private hot pools.“
