“A magical place”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We had a family vacation in the small cabin. Unfortunately the cabin was too small for 3 adults and 2 children. With one bathroom, thin flooring and very noisy stairs it was difficult to sleep without disturbance. The resort is very attractive, staff is friendly and accomodating. The cabin and grounds were very clean. We look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: We loved the location of the cabin which was near the spa and hot springs but found it rather crampe...

I stayed at the Cliffside Lodging at this resort for 2 nights, and could not have been more pleased. The room was comfortable and had a microwave and a refigerator. The restaurant has upscale food - it is a bit more expensive, but the ingrediants are high quality - so don't worry on that count. The relaxing pool and spa were wonderful - the views are lovely. Definitely a place to return to!

This resort has made so many improvements in the past few years - too many to count! The bar serves a great cocktail, the pools, especially the upper pools are clean and wonderful, the rooms are clean and modern and the dining room serves a great dinner menu. My only complaint is that the basin style sinks are too high for my shortness! But this is a great value with complimentary yoga classes, great locker rooms, etc. etc. A complete taste of the Colorado Rockies!

Soothing, tranquil and serene. The best way to enjoy all of the amenities that Mt. Princeton Hot Springs has to offer is to make a reservation and stay overnight either in the hotel or cabins. The areas are separated for day use and overnight guests. The day use is an excellent choice for thermal pools and river experiences. Overnight guests will utilize separate pools and spa services. All of the grounds are well defined and cared for. There is a good restaurant on sight and a general store for snacks, drinks, and gifts. In the summer season there is a waterslide, tennis courts and other amenities. Hiking, photography, horseback riding and visits to St. Elmo, a mining town from the 1880s are also great experiences.

For those seeking a unique venue for weddings, receptions or business retreats, the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort is an excellent choice.

I have been visited and stayed there over dozen times and every time was a pleasant experience. Enjoy.

Beautiful setting, clean rooms and hot springs area. Incredible value for the price as booking a room includes access to the pools and spa. Definitely a gem in Colorado and I'll come back again and again. Also very close to Buena Vista and Salida - great location.

Room Tip: The Cliffside rooms each have a little patio with table and chairs - beautiful spot to watch sunrise...

I travel to various hot springs in Colorado, and discovered Mount Princeton Resort. It is a wonderful property! Lots of room to soak in the various pools that are heated by the hot springs. I especially liked that you could soak in the river with the hot springs that were heating the water on the bank. I wish they had a few more smaller pools though. The main pool could have been a bit hotter as well. We stayed in a Hillside room. It was a bit pricey for what it is, but the rest of the resort made up for that. I think I will try one of the cabins next time. Gill, the concierge, was excellent! The rest of the staff was wonderful too. Incredible views, and quiet grounds. It was very relaxing. The trip to St. Elmo (the ghost town) was a fun day trip. Probably better in the warmer months, but I still enjoyed checking it out even with lots of snow.

Room Tip: Try a cabin.

Just now, reading someone else's review that was disappointed in the changing room area, I can understand if that's the only part of the facility that they encountered. However, the ENTIRE rest of the facility is WONDERFUL !! We didn't mind the older part of the facility because we know how long it's been there, felt it was historic Colorado and know they will be updating it. All the other areas are great !! There are many pools to choose from, all nice. The hotel and restaurant are very good. The spa facilities were top notch. Even the store on premises was a delight. Additionally, every single staff member we encountered were nice and well informed. We also appreciated that, for the price of a one-night stay, they allowed you to stay the day after check out. We will include this in our vacation plans on a regular basis, The surrounding area is also lovely with good biking and hiking. We hiked around a Lake up the road just a few miles. Delightful.
