There is no doubt that the pools, although small, have the most soothing waters of many I've tried. The Montana skies above, especially the stars at night are worth the trip. Emerging from the pools one feels incredibly well but the hotel makes one forget the good feelings quite quickly. Food service is spotty- our evening there- the cook didn't... More

This place is a good place to soak and enjoy the company of other people! It is so much more than just hot springs, it is an experience. There is a great pool for kids and a hot tub for adults.

Its nothing fancy. But its definitely got a lot of character. It only costs $60 to stay here so you can't really expect anything fancy. Its a block from fergy's which has awesome food and a friendly bar staff. Id recommend symes to anyone who isnt a hotel snob. I stay there at least 4 times a year. And i... More

A friend dragged me to this place out in the middle of nowhere. We crowded in a worn out pool with little privacy and having to overhear 'colorful' locals yelling at each other. I noticed law enforcement doing a regular lap around the perimeter and got the impression they were looking for some criminals. Bathrooms were scary. Locals had a... More

This was the.worst.hotsprings. on earth! We loved Montana, the people the beauty. We were dissapointed in this place. It was filthy and sketchy. There were locals drinking and spitting in the pools. The facility was unclean, rundown and unkept. Don't bother making the drive. Save the gas.

Little to like. The facility is very rundown and not well kept. Cleanliness and lack of security and adequate coverage at the front desk makes staying at the Symes a risk. Don't do it.

Its a cool place if you are looking for something with its own charm! If you are looking for a nice place with everything new, this is not it! But if you are looking for a cheap place to stay with history, this is it!

I really did like the water, I've been to a lot of hot springs and Symes has some of the hottest pools. That's the best thing I can say about the place. The soaking pools are pretty disgusting, especially the lower pool. It was covered in a greenish slimy film. The changing room was covered with grime, the single toilet... More

We didn't stay at the hotel, but we did use the outdoor soaking pools. The diversity of people was the first thing that struck me. Clearly the springs attract people from all corners of the earth. The water is wonderful, the mineral content is very high. It was rather busy the weekend we were there, but there were open fairly... More
