“First Time to Fire Water”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

Great Room! This was our first visit to the Fire Water Lodge and we loved it! While the property is older and located in the original part of town, we found our room to be outstanding! Extremely clean and well decorated. Dawn, the property manager, was amazing and very helpful. The location is perfect as it is in walking distance of several good restaurants.

I would highly recommend the Fire Water Lodge to anyone who wants a different experience in lodging. Great atmosphere and a very fun place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in the newly renovated Agave Room. Very clean and spacious. The mineral bath was amazing...

We are from Australia on a road trip around Arizona and New Mexico. We stayed here after reading reviews on TA. From the street this place doesn't look much....... Looks can deceive the rooms are clean, well laid out and the mineral spring tub all I hoped for. We ate at the Italian round the corner and had eggplant parmigiana on Richard's advice ....it was excellent. Plus the coffee at the cafe next door was the best I've had in this country, If ever we return to T or C we would happily stay again

We stayed here because of all of the great reviews. I don't understand it! Why are there so many great reviews of this place? It is run down, the service was horrible, no privacy, it is unsafe and very cold.

The Eucalyptus room was very dirty and falling apart. The floor is made of plywood and was separating from the wall leaving gaps to the outside (see photos I posted). When we checked in, trash was on the counter (empty coffee cup) and there was leftover food and crumbs in the kitchenette area. There was bottle of oil left from a previous tenant too. There is no central heat (see photo). There was one space heater in there and we were freezing cold. We had to ask for two additional heaters just to keep the place warm. There were no smoke detectors. We felt uncomfortable running space heaters all night without smoke detectors at the very least. There was a paper plate taped to the ceiling in the bathroom (see photo). There were huge gaps in the "privacy" fence surrounding our "private" outside 'soaking' area and a man walked by, glanced in, and saw me stark naked. There was an unusable broken chair sitting on "our" patio (see photo). All in all, this was the worst overnight experience of our lives.

This is an amazing place. The rooms are quaint and always clean. Every time we say here I have a life changing experience. Having the mineral spring tubs in the room is amazing! The Italian restaurant is absolutely fabulous. We can't believe it's here in T or C.

Room Tip: The rooms in the main area are more communal. The Agave & Sunflower rooms are beautiful but away...

I stayed in the Waterfall Room (so named because the soaking tub fills up with a waterfall effect) and found it to be extremely comfortable. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever encountered on a vacation trip and I loved the decor of the room (Southwestern/Mexican) with talavera tiles, serapes for window coverings, complete with fridge and microwave, coffeemaker, bottled water, the works! Additionally, the staff was as friendly and helpful as could be. I would definitely recommend this place to visitors to T or C. It has a definite retro feel as it was originally a travel-court/motel and has retained much of the original ambiance, which I found quite charming. The center courtyard has chairs and tables, which I took advantage of while reading and relaxing in the cool evening breeze under a palm tree.

Room Tip: I would recommend the Waterfall Room, both for it's charm and it's immediate proximity to th...

I've been here several times and really enjoy the relaxation with private in-room soaks that are unlimited. Breakfast included right next door and you can walk to the river easily from the Lodge.
I've gone alone, with kids, with friends and with my significant other...this place works for all.
Calm, laid back area is perfect for a small getaway from the city!

Room Tip: My favorite room is the Eucalyptus Room with the private outdoor tub. The Sunflower Casita is great...

The Fire Water Lodge is the best place to stay in T or C, NM. You will love the location, the
quaint rooms with the hot tub in the privacy of your room, as well as a public tub outside for larger groups. You will not find a better hospitality staff, than Richard, Damian and Dawn. Right next door you will enjoy a breakfast at the Happy Belly Deli.

This is a MUST stay...while visiting the hot springs.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are 1 level and easy to access. You will love to leave the front door open with th...
