They open their hot pools to the public. It was over crowded, no supervision .. non guests took all the chairs and tables picnicking with their dogs and kids ... Try to relax in a hot pool with kids jumping in splashing the water in your face... no parental supervision. The rooms do not have air-conditioning or other basic amenities... More

We stopped here on a cross country trip and the hot springs were just what we needed after sitting in the car all day. We loved the funky grounds and the pools were varied and wonderful. We stayed in 'the cottage' which I would not recommend. It is cute but there is no bathroom sink so you have to brush... More

I've been to plenty of hot springs and these had the hottest hot springs that I've ever been to. There were two large hot springs and several small springs. Try the smaller ones first if you are shy about heat.

a nice diversion off I-15 or quick trip between Idaho Falls and Salt Lake. So of the hottest pools I have ever encountered, but varying temperatures to suit any preference. Place is very clean and reasonably priced.

I found the springs here to be way more relaxing than the park. Several smaller springs of different temps that were quieter. Less kids in the smaller springs, they tended to stay in the bigger pool here. Also, Dog Friendly, the puppy hung out next to use for the day, overlooking the tubers on the river. Staff was incredibly helpful,... More

The grounds, decorations, and ambiance are pleasant, and the 3 pools in front, and the 2 pools in back are wonderful and beautiful. The drawbacks are it seems obvious the owner doesn't see a need to make sure the main back entrance has a functioning luck for after hours, do important maintenance/repairs inside the motel, and remodel the larger rooms...

As a family we decided we needed a quick 24 getaway. This time of year it was very quiet with just the hotsprings open. Perfect for us. We also were able to fit in a massage after hours of soaking. We will go back for sure.

Visited in summer of 2011 and the property looked like a tranquil spa, went back to show it off April 2015 and was surprised by the loud music and outdoor furniture clutter?

Most wonderful evening in the pools. Water was soothing before and after dinner. Great place to relax. One night wasn't enough to see and enjoy everything in this quant little town.

The pools have varying degrees of hot water. It was so relaxing! We were so relaxed by the time we left. The changing room were ok but could use upgrading, but they were fine.
