We rolled into town not yet having a reservation for a place to stay and were thrilled to end up at Lion's Gate. We didn't know it was there, so we first visited a couple of the hotels/motels in town. While I can appreciate the fact that these places are old and have a nice history we were a little worried when checking them out. The smell of dust was overpowering in the Lava Hot Springs Inn. The visual aspect was much worse. I did not want to sit
Down anywhere. I think much could be done to update these places while preserving the history of the building. We saw a sign for the Lion's Gate as we were walking down the street, so we thought we'd check it out. We couldn't have been happier to find it. We had the opportunity to tour most of the themed rooms. They were really nicely thought out. The location, in my opinion, is perfect. It honestly is just a little ways off main street. (certainly not several miles from town as others have suggested!). We thought it was nice to drive up to the manor after a long soak in the hit pools and feel like we could get away from everyone else a little bit. Breakfast in the mornings is fantastic! I can smell the bacon cooking as I write this review. We were served such a big variety of hot food i felt bad i couldn't eat more. Breakfast is at 9:00 and is family style. It's a lot of fun to visit with the other guests as we eat and share stories. We will definitely come back and look forward to it. Our next visit to Lava will probably be more to stay at the manor. The pools and shops are a bonus.
