We were on a super long road trip from Texas to Colorado and home again. We decided to take the long way home and decided, quite by chance, to stop in Truth or Consequences. Aside from how the town got its name (definitely worth a Wikipedia search), I knew next to nothing about this little stopover. Furthermore, I had no idea that this town was a hot-springs destination in the 30's and 40's.
Well, I did a little research on the hot springs and found Blackstone Hot Springs Baths. I am SO glad I did...
We booked the Wet Room for an hour. It is completely private (with a lock on the door) and is yours for the hour that you book. They provide big, fluffy towels and water. The room itself is large with a big tub of steaming hot mineral spring water. It is fantastic. There is also a steam shower with a waterfall feature that really helps work out the knots after a long drive.
We had already checked into a big chain hotel by the interstate, but asked to see one of the rooms. They are adorable and each room has a mineral bath to itself. We will definitely be back to stay soon!
