We were looking for a retreat to get away from the pouring rain on the last day of our vacation. We looked up the reviews for hot springs (T or C) NM and decided to try it but only on the condition that the waters were INSIDE the room. Fire Water Lodge looked very iffy from the outside but after crossing the very funky courtyard and observing the eclectic furnishings we were surprised to find a very nice room and most importantly a huge tub with the 110 degree mineral waters flowing right in.!!!! It is not your run of the mill hotel.Not luxury either. A very comfortable bed and basic southwest style furniture, coffee maker and good towels. There were light bathrobes for each of us . We asked for a change of room when we discovered the AC did not work, it kept shutting off. Immediately the night manager, Dawn, moved us to another room which was an upgrade. The Datura 7. In future we will return and we will stay in that room definitely. Other hotels have the baths outside and limit your time. We got in a few times at night and again in the morning before leaving. Woah it was so relaxing. Oh and breakfast at the nearby bagel shop was included and yummy. You should not miss the Fire Water Lodge. It is worth the price.
