Sulfur smell in the hot springs and the waters are not filtered
Stayed in a cottage that was marginal - stove was clean enough but beat up, bed was uncomfortable, bath small but servicable. Hot springs had a heavy sulfur smell and since hot pools aren't filtered could see a fair amount human detrius floating in the water. The compound does sit a beautiful valley and there are nice day hikes around.

Nice, but the locker rooms NEED WORK!
My husband and I have been to Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort many times over our 39 year marriage, plus I went there as a child with my family a couple of times. The 3 hot spring pools are very nice and well maintained, as is the full size swimming pool. And while they seem to have done a small amount of upgrading in their locker rooms, they are still sorely lacking!!! Six showers for women, but three of them weren't even working. Also six showers for the men and while 4 of them were working, 2 of those that worked wouldn't run anything but cold water. The women's locker room had a device to wring water from a swimsuit with a bucket underneath to catch the water, but the bucket was never emptied, always overflowing for the 2 days we were there. For a facility that can hold so many people in the pools, they have totally neglected the locker rooms making 6 women in the locker room at one time crowded, with only 2 benches, both of which are across the room from the lockers.

mineral spring pools
Unfortunately we were not able to get a room here as they were booked at the time. However, my main goal was to try out the hot springs as I have never been in them before. You can purchase admission to that area even if you are not staying at the resort. It was fairly busy and we did not arrive till mid afternoon so parking was at a premium, but we were able to find a space. The springs were interesting and I'm glad we had a chance to get there. Not something you can find just anywhere.

Sol Duc Shines after 5 consistent years of Excellent Management and Staff!
WOW! My whole family has been coming to Sol Duc for almost 20 years. We've the seen seasonal quality rollercoaster and the legitimate challenges this remote rustic resort can face. But over the last 5 years or so, under the General Management of Jay Vincent, we are in shock! Sol Duc has entered the 21st century. The entire place has had every detail upgraded and improved. We have had several perfect guest experiences over the years and especially in the 2019 season. Not only are the other guests happy and relaxed, but the entire staff from Austin to Amanda, to lifeguard Steve on the pool deck, were going above and beyond happily. We had a great restaurant experience also. Our server Jeff was an expert in fine dinning and we had the best Crab Cobb and Caprese Salads ever! Word is the great GM they have truly treats all of his staff and guests as equals which is a hard quality to find in a resort leader these days. I highly recommend Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort. It is the heart of Olympic National Park thanks to the hearts of the staff.
