The hot springs were super relaxing. The staff were nice and helpful as well. The facilities were clean. The area is nude friendly, but it is ok if you wear your suit. The changing room is co-ed and open, so if you are on the shy side be prepared for that. About 30% of the people wore swim suits and... More

We arrived to this beautiful, woodsy hot spring and spent the day soaking and swimming after having spent the 3 days before riding bikes around Lake Tahoe. It was wonderful! We plan to return and stay at the lodge next time just didn't have time this trip to stay overnight.

We stayed at the lodge, and initially were a little worried by the tired look of the lodge. However it does somehow add to the rusticness of the place. The main thing to note is nudity is optional. Being body conscious I was a wee bit worried but the great thing is that it's fine and felt very comfortable to... More

If you read some of the previous reviews you will undoubtedly have noticed that this is by no means a plush resort. It is perfect to get away, think, enjoy solitude or strike up interesting conversations. This review is really about three different things, but all are listed as one address and destination. 1. The hot springs: natural hot water... More

" Los Dos Hermanos" a mexican resturant in sierraville; my partner and myself have vomited and became quite ill due to the miscarried food. During our stay, he healed ourselves at the springs and when we shared our story with other guests, everyone sayed that they too have heard the " food poisening" reputation of the resturant.

we stayed at the globe on March 27-28 on there 2 for one winter mid week special. The room was very clean and conferrable. I tend to view and rate hotels as how they are advertised, the globe is not a 4 star Hilton, but they never clam to be. The Globe is a small place with bathrooms down the... More

So at the end of a short, dusty road lies Sierra Hot Springs. I would be extending myself to state it is a Resort and Retreat Center. Try Breitenbush, up in Oregon , or another "Resort", to classify it as such. At times, the web pages of such resorts are misleading. Lots of gloss and glam.. yet, upon arrival.. well..... More

If you stay here, you can relax in the wonderfully warm, sulfuric water pools which are open 24 hours. This is a great place if you like to soak. Clothing optional and very rustic and chilled back. We lodged in the dorms which were simple and affordable. The whole place has a youth hostel like feel because of the communal... More

What is better after a strenuous day on the slopes than a restful soak in authentic hot springs? Not much. Lake Tahoe is famous for its world class ski resorts and there is only ONE hot natural hot spring open to the public accessible year around and that is the serene Sierra Hot Springs Resort & Retreat Center. Whether you... More

The hot spings are fantastic and clean. The location is beautiful. I really liked the "Meditation Pool", which is in a meadow, near the campgrounds. The Lodge needs new paint but the bathrooms were nice. The referigerators in the communal kitchen were bordering on disgusting. I could not stand to be in the kitchen. It is possible that I was...
