  • Clean water, great staff, wonderful day. The kids were out before dark, making for a relaxing and enjoyable adult experience under the Colorado moon 5  more »
  • Nice place, clean and we'll maintained. Had a mother's day weekend with family. Recommend it to all family's.  more »
  • We really liked the separate pools with varying temperatures. We went on a busy day (according to the guy giving wrist bands) but it was still uncrowded enough to enjoy.  more »

  • Very nice, the pools aren't a very nice temperature. They go from about 95 and below to 106 and above which is a huge jump with nothing in between. The men's changing area is absolutely terrible. Very nasty and smells like urine. You have to walk through the middle of the changing area to get to the sauna, with only a shower curtain blocking anyone that is changing. It is just a little run down and not very well kept. A nice place to go if you like colder water or super hot springs. My wife got a massage here and said it was nice so there's that.
  • My first natural hot springs, so I'm no expert, but I enjoyed it. Some of the pools had a lot of little flecks floating around in them, but I feel like that's to be expected in a natural pool with no chemicals. The hotter pools were cleaner (clearer). Facility has decent showers, toilets, and changing rooms.
  • Visited for the hot springs. Great water, laid back atmosphere. I would go back any chance I have
  • This is more family friendly than most hot springs, so if you are a couple without kids looking for less family friendly (like me), this may be a little disappointing. We fortunately had a private pool with our cabin. This is absolutely the way to go. The stream outside suppressed a lot of the family noises and constant slamming of car doors and trunks from the steady stream of visitors. The public pools were lovely on Friday but by Saturday, they were way overcrowded. The cabin was about $200 a night but what we were not told (among other things) is that there was NO maid service. No trash pick up, no new towels, nothing. When I was handed by key, I wasn't even told where the cabin was. There are no explanations given. If you want to know, you have to ask. Then it's the huffy attitude of how could you not know something so obvious. Also, if you think you want to take a hot shower, guess again. You have exactly (we timed it) 4 minutes of not quite luke warm water (only the hot cranked up but barely luke warm water trickling out) and then it's arctic. That's one minute of turning it on, jumping in, and scrubbing your face, one minute of shampoo, one minute of conditioner and one minute to soap your body. Period. Then the water is absolutely freezing ice cold. That being said, it's convenient, relatively cheap, the cabin had a private pool and kitchen and the stream is pretty. I asked my husband if he wanted to return, and his response was "let's check out other hot springs first."
  • Just used the hot springs, not the inn, but was highly disappointed. The water is really disgusting, it was like floating in a pool of mucus, loose hairs, and dead bugs. The heat in the pools left a lot to be desired. Truthfully, I'd recommend paying $5 for admission to a regular hottub anyday, you cannot even tell these are hot springs... it just seems like over-decorated hot tubs with outrageous pricing. Sauna can only fit maybe 4-5 people maximum. Public showers could only get warm, not hot. Employees kept walking into changing areas while customers were trying to change. Front desk clerk was unfriendly and unwelcoming. Admission is $20 and to borrow a towel is $2. It's all about the money it seems. Save your money, go somewhere else.
