I've been to a handful of hot springs, and this one does not rank in the top 5. I was hopeful because it looked like more of a naturalistic spot, which it was, but overall it was a bit of a letdown. The whole place (lodge included) has a rundown feel to it. Changing room was cramped, but there were... More

Beware! This place could be great, but we had such a horrible experience. The room smelled like mold. There are no t.v's. The beds and pillows were horrendous and extremely uncomfortable. All over they have signs stating there is "No smoking marijuana anywhere on the premise" yet when my husband and I came down to soak in the pools we... More

Cottonwood hot springs is worth the visit for the hot springs, but I would not stay here until some significant improvements are made. The beds were uncomfortable and need to be replaced. The center of the bed was sagging and the edges will make you fall off the bed. I woke up with a sore neck and back, which is... More

I am sorry your stay was not satisfactory, however I also don't understand the reference to the beds. all of our beds in the rooms were replaced after the fire with natural latex, with bamboo covers. the best money could buy. Cathy More

I stayed in one of the dorms; had everything you could need- towels, a comfortable, clean bed, a decent shower. Basic but nice. I just read my book and didn't miss the TV or Wifi. The best part is the hot springs! Lovely at night to look at the stars and not crowded at all. Not treated with chlorine so... More

I've been here a few times and always stayed in a cabin because I can bring my dogs. I was going to stay recently in a room for a girls weekend, but when we arrived, the pool was packed. There is a very large cold pool, a largish warm belly pool, a warmer elbow pool and a very warm largish... More

Clean, refreshing soaking in a variety of cement/stone lined pools, varying depths and temps. 90-105+ .Soaking available 24 hours. If you are a single lady, the women only dorm is the way to go, if you don't mind a big room with 4 queen beds in it. There's also a kitchen, a table with 4 chairs, and two sofas, and... More

For our trip to Colorado we decided that relaxing in the Hot Springs would be a great place to go, we weren't wrong. Bought day passes and spent the morning and then came back for an evening soak (No kids after 8). Don't know anything about the rooms.

Two of the five pools weren't operating, but they still charged $18 for a visit. Visually tacky. The vibe in the pools was unwelcoming and depressing. Although some of the other people there seemed to be enjoying themselves.
