Don't let their website fool you. This is not the kind of resort you're expecting. The photos look very nice and makes it look like an amazing place, but actually when we got there it was more like a campground with some hotel rooms. My husband called it "The hippie resort" since most people there looked and acted like that. Not to mention the life size statue of the dragon, and all of the neon lights and lazer beams everywhere. The cabins are dark and dreary. We upgraded to the lodge and that was better, but still your run of the mill basic room. You're paying resort pricing for a budget roadside motel. And that would be fine if advertised that way, but we thought it was going to a "resort." Lastly, the water! The water is brown and tastes like sulpher due to the springs. Luckily we brought bottled water. We even got sprite at dinner and it tasted terrible cause they use their tap water to mix the soft drinks - or maybe it was just the ice. But it was completely terrible. Bring your own water! The hot springs was nice and the locker room was clean. There was one staffer who was very nice and helped us tremendously. But most people who work there are hippies looking for a job and free rent. Basically, just don't expect a "resort" experience. It's nice to visit for the springs, and aurora, but don't make it a long trip.
