Took a chance after a local said it was the place to go. The hot springs are nice, the place is clean. My friends got massages and said they were wonderful.

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

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.

This is a fun albeit throwback to the 70's kind of place. Several individual hot spring pools with varying temperatures. We got caught in a mini spring snow storm that was brief but intense, and we stayed nice and toasty in one of the hotter...More

Great place to stop and relax after a day of skiing or rafting. Comfortable pools and usually not too crowded.

I've come here 3 times now and stayed once. The hot springs are excellent and hot. Their not to big but not too small either. The hotel rooms are nice but they do not have tv's or WiFi so just know that going in. Bring...More

I'd visited the hot springs as a day-visitor in the past and loved their pools. So when my sweetheart and I planned a mountain get-away we decided to stay there. BIG mistake. Front desk staff were not welcoming - I'd say rude, but really, they...More

I have heard that there are not any curtains and that the lights really shine in the lodge rooms. Should I bring a large blanket to block out the light in the room? I am a very light sleeper and need it to be dark.

We have recently replaced all of the window curtains to accommodate light sleepers as yourself. We hope to see you soon.
Hello there, I was wondering, how long the admission is valid for? does the whole day means 24 hours or until midnight that day. I'm planning to stay the night there and was wondering if we arrive there in the evening and buy an admission, we will be still using it in the morning. Thank you
