  • As I was leaving the men’s locker room, to swim my laps, I noticed a person cleaning the lockers last night. I just thought to myself, that’s cool. Then after swimming and walking down the hallway, I ...  more »
  • There's a reason the old timers settled this spring over the other springs in the area, it has the best water. A great place to soak, relax, and converse. Without a doubt the best hot springs in town,...  more »

  • Fun to walk the big pool (85-90 degrees) and get warmed up. BUT: Bring a swimmers cap in the winter or you will suffer mightily. The therapy pool is 104 degrees and it really helped my back. The staff is superb. The special pricing for the 9 to 10 pm is only $7 less than all day price of $17.50 - Big Deal. Go in the evening 6 to 10 and enjoy relaxing before you take a shower and go to bed for an excellent night sleep.
  • The Glenwood Hot Springs Pool is a staple in this community for locals and tourists alike. The natural spring water in the hot pool and the big pool are super relaxing and enjoyable, especially whenever they aren't too crowded. The locker rooms are clean and well kept. The facility includes some complimentary and well-used flotation devices for kids. Bring your own towels to save a couple bucks and stamp your hand if you feel like leaving and coming back later in the same day.
  • Best hot springs pool by far. You can drop 3 Olympic sized swimming pools in the cooler pool and have room left over. The hot pool is bigger than many swimming pools at hotels or apartments. And it is hot. 104-106. Not for little kids, but perfect for adults. And it is along a beautiful stretch of the Colorado River and on one end of Glenwood Springs. Bring a camera.
  • It was nice and relaxing, the big pool was very large and spacious. My kids enjoyed it so much. However, I wish the pricing were a little less steep and they didn’t charge for rides on the slide since you are already paying a hefty entrance fee.
  • Glenwood Hot Springs is truly a unique and memorable place enjoyed by tourists and locals alike. Especially on a day when there is a chill in the air and the steam rises, it can seem like heaven on earth. If you have pain, this is a place where your joints will ache less and you feel relaxation overcome you. There are two pools - one hotter therapy pool for adults and another slightly cooler pool perfect for the family, lap swimming, or long-term soaking. There is also a diving board at the very end of the cooler pool. Don't cut through the lap lanes though - there are ladders right before them. A few tips: -Some people seem to think they need to bring a water bottle into the pool (a fad over the past few years) - there is no need for this! If you are in the hot pool long enough to need it, you were in too long! -Kids should NEVER spend any significant time in the therapy pool. This pool is meant for adults, not child-size bodies and permanent harm can occur. There is nothing wrong with kids dangling their toes in though while their parents enjoy a (free for now) bubble chair massage! -Bring extra money if you come during the summer season. There are slides for the kids and a snack bar.
