Hotel very run down but pools are ok. Miracle springs hotel next door is better.

Definitely not high-end but comfortable. Note their spa treatments are still being serviced at their resort next door. Because I was there on a holiday weekend people were in the pools very late at night, but with the AC on not super intrusive.

very clean pools at various temperatures, even saw a road runner visit the place, enjoyed the lemon cod in restaurant

was basically an old run down place. shower was cold, ice machine did not work, toilet barely flushed, check in was at 3 but had to wait around until after 4 to get the keys. the pools were nowhere near hot warm maybe. was given towels at check in for the pool, that were old scratchy rags, i was scared to dry my car with them. exchanged them with the lady from housekeeping, they charged me for them . tried to relax in the sauna,it was full of kids playing fort or something. so i was not happy with any of it stay away from this place.

The hot springs pools were awesome. Room service was prompt. Staff nice. 3:00 check in seems very late to me. Check out is 11:00 I believe. Water in shower was hard to regulate. One minute it was cold and the next minute it was scolding hot.

It's retro, has a beautiful view of the mountains, great hot pools, live music on the patio noon to 3pm fun, food like a diner...room needed a good vacuuming and the toilet had pee under the seat., but we enjoyed ourselves anyway. The price was right.

Hot tub felt great after hiking all day. Room was big and clean. beds were comfortable. Nice view out he back porch to the mtns. Room was quite. Ice machine was not working but the restaurant gave us some ice.

easy check in. great view of the many pools on the property. nice clean pools with relaxing warm waters

Good location and staff, friendly, and responsive. Shower was not working well.

Loved the pools... Friendly staff. Good food. Great room Location!

Greatly surprised, nice acommodaions very roomie and clean, swimimg pool area well taken care of

First tine here..enjoyed my stay, the pools were great! Reasonable prices in café and all around

stay there for 2 nights and asked for a flat iron and there was not even one available i think all hotel rooms should be able to have one. over all very nice!

While the hotel is definitely older, the rooms are clean and spacious, the beds are comfortable with plenty of decent pillows. The eight pools are large, with water coming in from the aquifers that run underneath the ground to mix with cooler waters to provide various temperatures.

It's not new but it is relaxing..it is what it is

Thank you, we are an older property with lots of love. One of the original spas in town, we are still open to the public for the day, however do recommend our three star sister resort for hotel stays.

Dear Guest, We apologize for this type of stay and have policies that our lifeguard will act upon to prevent the events that you are describing such as children playing in the sauna and the unregulated temperatures. We regularly have temps as high as 104 in at least 3 pools. We use a lot of towel so have purchased a very economical selection. We keep everything including our rates, affordable and family friendly. We hope you will see the true value in this on your next stay.
