  • We've been going down to Dakota Hot Springs since it was called The Well and have always found it to be clean, friendly and relaxing. Yes, there are stains on the bottom and sides of the pool. People,...  more »

  • All the reviews that say this place is dirty are either old/out of date or comparing it to some inner city spa. This place is a rustic gem, perfect water temperature for a relaxing soak in the pool or...  more »

  • This place is so relaxing.... I love it here.... It's my staycation place. JUST A WARNING IT IS CLOTHING OPTIONAL except Tuesdays.... Then suits are required. Water is super clean and always nice and warm.... Make sure to bring a or buy a drink when you go it, it'll make ya thirsty. Prices are posted on their website for entry and for membership, so. Are the hours of operation. People there are also amazing and very friendly! Will return as often as I can!
  • Very Secure, Lots of older people. You are not allow to bring your phone so make sure you bring mp3 instead for music but there is none. Staff was nice and they were always around so it feels very safe, I will go back no nobody bother me, people were respectful and nice.
  • There has always been a great mix of men and women of all ages at Dakota when I have been there. It's a very laid back place.
  • We have gone here for years, I want to say that first. But the change in management has lead to pointless "upgrades (flowers in the bathroom)", but no maintance to the pool or pool deck( not even skimming the leaves/bugs out of the water at all), the word "NO" being posted everywhere you look and then some one that works there constantly watching and correcting you. For instance, the sign in the lobby says there are no noon smoking areas on the ground. Yet, an employee ask use not to smoke by the pool. And all of this is evident in the lack of patrons. We use to go early on the weekends to make sure we had room. But on a great weather weekend in the summer there were only like 20 people here. FYI new management, you have to hear the suggestions and not just focus on complaints.
  • I love going here, but they are VERY anti-marijuana so don't get your hopes up about soaking in the hot springs enjoying Colorado's finest. A real shame, the medicinal value would be exponentially enhanced is it were at least allowed with prescription. I would vote 5 star if they let me have my medicine.
