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

dont get me wrong, Symes is a lovely place and has very nice classic rooms and some of the greatest mineral water on the planet but lately it seems to be very busy all the time and a bit crowded, the staff for the most part is very helpful and friendly. I recommend you try a night here and make... More

I had the hot springs fed outdoor swimming pool to myself and then enjoyed the hot pool and the cascading hot water that came from the hottest pool above. While there were only a few people in the hot pools while I was there, they were very chatty and rather loud so it wasn't as relaxing as I would have... More

I've now developed a swimmers rash... Making my assessment of the place less favorable. Such a shame but that means the pools are not kept at a good ph level. The place has potential if only they would put some care and attention to detail.

Mom and I on a whim decided to go to Hotsprings for a night. After driving around trying to find someplace open and with pools we found this piece of history. Service is friendly though the place is terribly understaffed. The last remodel was clearly done sometime in the 1950's. Which is kind of charming, kind of not. The rooms... More

If you've ever seen the Great Muppet Caper, Symes reminds me a lot of the Happiness Hotel. That being said, here are a few helpful hints to enjoying your stay at the old hotel IMO. Bring your own extra blankets and an air bed if you stay in one of the larger rooms. The beds are mostly not of this... More

I've gone here many times and always enjoyed it. The cabins are better to stay in than the hotel, in my opinion. Yes it's rustic and your phones won't work. If no tv in your room is a huge deal, don't stay here. I've read many reviews of ppl who think television is the most important part of a trip...

My husband & I were born & raised in Montana, have lived in big cities during our careers, but prefer smallish Montana towns now that we're retired. Hot Springs is a very small town with a lot of personality if you keep your eyes & ears open. The historic Symes Hotel and Hot Springs (don't confuse this with Wild Horse... More
