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.

We took friends visiting from Savannah on a weekend round trip of Olympic National Park. The hot springs were a convenient and pleasant place to stay for a night. We got two cabins close to each other. Comfortable and simple. It was a little walk to the main lodge for meals and access to the hot spring pools. A bit of surfur and a bit crowded but still good to take a dip.
Tasty dinners and breakfasts await the traveler.
We rented the big house to celebrate our 60th birthdays, and had a wonderful time. The house is set back away from the lodge with a creek in the backyard. It was very clean and when the barbecue grill was missing Brandy jumped in to make sure one was delivered to us. Being on the property we would go for a soak in the morning, hike and a soak again in the afternoon. Morning was always cleaner and not as many people, but that is common at any pool. Dressing room is small, but when you stay on the property you really don’t need it. Thanks to everyone for a wonderful stay.
