Located in Olympic National Park, Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort is known for — you guessed it — its natural hot springs. The resort has three hot springs soaking pools (plus one freshwater pool). You can visit the pools with a day pass, but we highly recommend overnighting in one of the resort’s cozy cabins.
Most cabins sleep up to four guests; opt for the Kitchen Duplex Cabin if you plan to stay a few nights and want to cook some meals. Traveling with a large group? Go for the Riverside Suite, which can accommodate 10 people. Some units are pet-friendly. All guests enjoy complimentary access to the pools.
The Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort has an onsite restaurant, Springs Restaurant, which offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. Kids’ menus are available. The hotel also has an espresso bar and lounge, and a gift shop with grab-and-go meals.
Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort is typically open late-March through late-October.

Sol duc hot springs resort is a total escape from any and all electronics. No cell service or TVs. Hike to falls is beautiful. Hot springs are clean and very relaxing. Great location for day tripping the peninsula. Rooms are basic but comfortable.
I’d never been here before and honestly had done very little research. The place seems pretty rundown. On the upside the setting is great as it’s in the heart of the Olympics. Entry price is reasonable for maintaining the area and the bathrooms were great, the spinning clothes dryer was a plus after getting out of the springs. For the negatives, it was crowded even 2 hours from closing because they only have 2 circular hot spring areas. It’s more like. Public pool setting than a nature inspired hot springs. Worst was the restaurant attached to the resort. I didn’t expect world class service or anything crazy, but the servers were untrained, forgetful and just plain weird. My server forget to bring my bill twice not to mention I had to ask for a menu twice. Chowder was plain, vegetarian quesadilla was not bad. So if you’re looking for a nature inspired honoring I would pass, if you are just there to soak in a crowded hot tub with natural spring water for slightly higher public pool prices the. His place is for you.
