If you're looking for fancy and corporate not your scene. We always enjoy a 2 day visit here. It is cut into the side of a mountain...the pools are concrete and rock. Its a good local place and reasonably priced.

I had never been to a Hot Springs before so I did not know what to expect! The tubs were amazing, therapeutic, so relaxing and clean. The rooms were clean and large. The two guys at the front desk were unprofessional but overall, it was...More
