I've stayed here over 40 years but this time the clerk was rude, the parking was full and I had to park 2 motels away, the icemaker was broken, the coffee wasn't ready on time, and once again theclerk was rude. This place is old. looks old. smells old. And the service is old. also the rooms farthest away from...

This was our second time staying here. The park is just OK with a dirt lots and a concrete pad. Full hookups etc but the 56 meg internet speed was a surprise. The sites are shady and 10 ft from the Portneuf River. Be sure to go to the Hot Springs State park across the street for a relaxing soak.

Budget motel. Older but clean and comfy beds. Major plus is it us located directly across the street from the lava hot springs pools. Shopping, restaurants and everything is handy too. Covered outdoor seating (smoking) area was nice. Friendly and helpful staff.

Great visit! Rooms were very clean. Cleaning lady was very helpful asking if we needed anything. She was working her butt off. Staff was very friendly. Loved the river out back. Room was very large. We were here for a reunion and they were great. Good wifi.

This motel was filthy. The bathtub drain was rusty and didn't drain. All the rooms are on the ground floor so having a window that didn't lock was scary.everything is in disrepair from the walls to the outlets, carpet, beds,all of it. My bed had a rubber pad on it so I woke up sweaty all night. The parking lot...

My air conditioning unit did not work. Management's only suggestion was to hand me a well used oscillating fan. Owner's were no better, taking over 72 hours to even say they would refund my money and that being after I disputed the charge on my credit card.

Good location, right across the street from the hot springs. Great place to have a family vacation if you want to float the river, soak in the mineral waters, play in the pools and go down the water slides. Nice staff at the motel.

This "50's's style motel is a very nice place to stay if you are visiting Lava Hot Springs. Caddy cornered across from the famous Lava Hot Springs hot pots, the motel is close to almost everything. The motel staff is very accommodating and it is especially nice on weekdays as the crowds tend to come in on weekends. Rooms are...

The RV park used to be well maintained and have some nice grassy areas. There is no longer grass and it is over grown with weeds. People that are not guests at the Park come and go all night. Our long time family tradition of staying there is about to come to an end. We will be looking for better...
