It’s been a good 15 years since we’ve stayed at Chico, and boy, has the place changed. And all for the better – if that were possible. We loved that the lobby still looked the same, and we loved our old, tiny, creaky, historic room – including the flocked velvet wallpaper, the antique-y furniture, the covered electric wires on the...

Atmosphere of resort is nice but having buildings all the way arid the pool takes away from the view. Not a lot of temp difference between the two pools. Nice surprise is a bar so you can have a drink while in pool. Probably can do this brings pool isn't that hot.

Try the mud massage and after - head over to the saloon. The drinks were cheap and the food surpassed my expectations. The actual hot springs however, we didn't try - too crowded. Make sure you visit the horses - they like to eat the clover out of your hand.

We stayed in the Lower Lodge Spa Suite, which was very large and decadent: King bed, huge shower, and a big, 2 person hot tub in the room. The hot springs were very nice to relax in and dinner at the restaurant was all nice. We would highly recommend staying here.

We knew the rooms would be small, so that was OK. We had our own bathroom, which was important to us. The hot springs pool was excellent.

The hot springs were developed back in the 1800's and have been updated as needed. Beautiful pool and great even hotter pool too. Very clean and staff is friendly. Wonderful gift shop also :)

First time I came during the day in May and used both pools and found them both very warm. Then kids showed up and it got quite noisy, not the atmosphere for a good soak in the hot pool being as it's right next to the other pool. Redeeming factor is that there is a saloon and I went in... More

I visited Chico with some family from the area in late August 2014. We had a few drinks in the bar and swam in the hot springs pool for about an hour. The experience was good. The people in the bar were great and the drinks were priced right. I'll definitely stop by for a drink and a hot soak... More

I loved the hot springs. The hot pool was mighty hot! It cost for a family of four $22 for the day to go swimming! Recommend morning swim as there are few people, it's quiet. Evening is more of a party atmosphere (and with little ones, not really our thing)

I visited Chico many times for dinner and events when I lived in Bozeman, and it was so fun to return and stay overnight this time. The Warren's Wing off the main lodge is quiet, modern, and very convenient. To get some air flow on hot days, open the front room door and chain it with your windows open. The... More
