Not worth what you pay for
We stayed in a cabin with kictchenette, approx $300/day, which had be booked over six months ago because of the demand. The room was stocked with a single plate, and despite repeatedly asking the front desk, this was never remedied. Worse, there were mouse droppings all over the bathroom sink. This was reported to the front desk as well. The woman behind the desk was entirely uncaring but told me that this would be addressed by housekeeping later that morning. We checked out this morning (three nights after checking in) and are still waiting for things to be cleaned up. (Certainly, I understand that this is within a National Forest, but for the cost of this, using the hairdryer under the sink - of even just the space under the sink itself in a tiny bathroom - that was covered in mouse droppings shouldn’t have been too much to ask.). If you check in to cabin 104, the droppings are likely still waiting for you. Spend your money elsewhere. The scenery and nearby hikes were fantastic.

First time in a hot springs & olympic pk
Myself my wife and two daughters aged 13 and 10 rented a cabin onsite. We are irish and have never experiened hot springs before. We arrived early for check inn and were greeted by a blonde girl (wish i took note of her name) she was amazing she let us check in 1 hour early and answered my long list of questions with a smile. Our cabin was clean. My daughters loved the hot springs and said their burger in the resturant was so tasty. (Make sure to book dinner). Myself and my husband had fish and chips which was also very tasty. We also had breakfast the next morning. Pancakes bacon omelette fruit and break. Omelette was delicous and coffee was refilled without asking. Girls work hard in the resturant. Good value for money and quick service. We were very lucky to spot a black bear on the side of the road not far from sol duc. We stayed in cabin no 132 which had the lovers lane loop right behind us. The hike took us 2 hours and is 10k in total
Part of the hike goes on to the road so just keep this in mind. I wasnt expecting much after reading the reviews on here but i honestly dont see any negatives other than the cabin could do with more comfortable beds and maybe a fridge but spent hardly any time in the cabin other than sleeping. (We had two doubles) We feel it was value for money. We used the hot springs for the last and first sessions as these times were quiet. Thank you so much we hope to come back someday.

Beautiful location, terrible facility
The location and drive in is so beautiful but the place is definitely not a resort and considering the price per night about $300 per night for a cabin with a kitchen it’s hard to say if it’s worth the price.
The Cabins are really small, out dated and there were no hooks anywhere to hang and dry things. Not one damn hook for a cabin that is for 1-4 people.
the main building is a total mess, the restaurant dining room is right by the the locker room, bathrooms and entrance to the pools ( that are sulfur so super eggy smelling) so it’s a extremely gross feeling.
luckily we packed enough food for the 3 days of of our stay.
There is no charm compared to the lake quinalt lodge and lake crescent resort so that was disappointing.
I have no desire to go back but knowing what I know now I would stay one night to enjoy the scenery. But I would stay some where else the price is to steep for what you get. Had we not brought our own food and had to rely on the restaurant it would have been $420 a day with the cost of a cabin and just food, only factoring on breakfast and lunch.

Magical , mystical day
We visited the resort twenty years ago with friends. As visitors from the UK going to a hot springs is a rare and exciting opportunity. We were not disappointed. The waters are incredibly relaxing. The three different temperatures and the freezing swimming pool gave us an extraordinary experience. We were so relaxed! It was a great place to meet people and strike up a conversation, which as foreign travellers we find fascinating. On the day we visited it was snowing which just about tripled the joy level as it was so surreal and magical. The facilities are very good, clean and well maintained. The staff couldn't be more helpful or polite. Chloe kept us well furnished with hot beverages and snacks, and Daniel and Kristian,on the desk , were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. All in all an awesome day!! Highly recommended. Don't miss it!!!

Sol Duc Hot Springs
The resort is a nice place. We were disappointed at what was promised. We read on the Recreation.gov website that campers soaked complimentary only to find out there was a charge for each hour and a half session. The complimentary part was only if you stay in an onsite cabin.
The facility was clean and organized. The staff was helpful. Weekends are crowded with an international cross section of attendees.
