Birth Of Home Hotel

The Home Hotel was one of the first large buildings in Lava Hot Springs. The property was acquired from John Hall in 1916 and the hotel was completed in October of 1918.
The Home Hotel was originally named after its first owner Mary Ann Ray and was called the Raya Hotel. Then in 1927, the second owners, Susan and Thomas McGinley, changed the name to the “Home Hotel”.
With our recent wave of renovation, we have changed the name again to the more simple and original: Home Hotel Lava Hot Springs. 

For 100 years, the Home Hotel has provided family-operated, affordable, yet luxurious lodging with private hot springs, all within walking distance to the world famous Hot Pools.

Simply cannot beat the location. We had a double queen and a LARGE bathtub. Paid a little more for location but it was worth it!
