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.

This place is a hidden gem! We had the place to ourselves and had access to all the pools. The temperature ranged from 102 F to 115 F without any sulfur smell. Some pools are larger than others, three are south of the Inn, one pool next to the main road into town and another two near the river. We... More

The natural hot springs pools at the Spa are fantastic. A number of pools, all with different temperatures and depths. The location is unique, right along the river. The hotel itself is something out of the "Twilight Zone". The rooms are good sized, but the furnishings are in desperate need of updating. Our room had a window AC unit in... More

We did not stay at the hotel, we only enjoyed the pools. The pools are fine, don't get me wrong. I just wonder why so many people in Salt Lake told me to go up there. There is a nearer nicer hot springs in Honeyville, Utah called Crystal Hot Springs. One thing this place does have over Crystal is its... More

This is a great place to take family or friends for a few hours of simple relaxation and conversation. The facilities are clean and there's something for people of all ages, including young children. There may have been people keeping an eye on things, but if so it wasn't obvious. People were left pretty much to their own devices, and... More

The water was warm & wonderful, the pool a bit busy, but that was expected for a Saturday on a 3-day weekend.
