Just spent a cold weekend in Riverside Inn in Lava Hot Springs. This lovely old hotel is the best get away in the winter. A short drive from SLC and you have everything you need under the same roof. Big cozy room, great indoor soaking tubs, good dining, massages. Add a friendly staff and you're good to go.

It was easy to find, with plenty of parking. There's a small lawn out front where my little dog could do her business on our way in. The staff are...

This is a hotel on the National Historic Record. It is big, beautiful, and filled with history. We had king room and the bed was sooooo comfortable. There are private rooms downstairs with hot pools. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We will stay again.

Decided to buy myself a night in Lava, and this inn was the perfect place for me to be. The spas are private and the temperature was right. My room had a delightful view of the Portneuf River, Oregon Trail, and was within walking distance of everything I wanted to do. Friendly and helpful staff.

I really enjoyed pretty much everything about this quaint, historic hotel. Liz, who took my reservation was very thorough and even called me back to get our drink vouchers ready. They did give us a great room rate in honor of Veteran's Day. My chief complaint is that we were placed near the front desk where I had to go...

I travel quite a bit to the major hotel chains and needed a break from the plain-vanilla experience. I found this hotel and was very interested in the Hot Springs aspect. It is a very interesting old building that you enter from the back side because it was originally built A century ago to face a busier street on the...
