I stayed at Chico Springs Resort for one night as part of a Yellowstone tour that ended at this lodge. At first impression the resort appears to have a quaint old west flair. That is until you start looking around and see the place for what it is: a glorified motel, not a resort. Where do I start? The water... More

My husband and I stayed at Chico for three days and two nights. The lodging was very nice with a rustic feel. We actually appreciated that the room did not have a television. Only "complaint" about the room itself was that the comforter was clearly outdated and very scratchy (but not a big deal, really). The biggest issue I had... More

The pool was hot and the restaurant was great. There are many geyser springs in the Yellowstone area, but few restaurants that measure up to the one at Chico. The attention to the meal by the chef was extraordinary as our steaks were returned to the kitchen by wait staff to make sure they were cooked as expected. ( They... More

I am not a huge "hot springs fan", but do visit them when the opportunity arises. I found this one to be a bit better than average for the water, but charmingly unique and that makes it special. Of the two man created pools, the hotter one is under cover and has a bar window just next to the pool.... More

I've been visiting Chico since I was a young woman. Love the horseback riding, dogsledding and the restaurants. There is a sign that says "Welcome home" and that's how I feel when I come.

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.
