I have been going to the Cottonwood Hot Springs for about 20 years. There was a fire in the Spring of 2013 that burned part of the lodge structure, and a lot has changed in the aftermath. In short - it's a work in progress. The lodge rooms have been renovated, updated and enlarged, and are quite comfortable now, with... More

We stayed at the hot springs for the Buena Vista Bike Fest. We had 3 people in a double room. The beds are doubles, not queens so was a bit of squeeze getting two people in one bed. King rooms are available, it just didn't work for 3. The rooms are newly remodeled and very clean and tidy. Hot water... More

I took some out-of-state guests here recently and we all really enjoyed it. I can't speak to the lodging, but the pools were nice and clean, the water temperatures went from very hot to bathtub temperature. There will be one right for you. I appreciated that there weren't a lot of kids screaming and splashing like there are at Mt... More

The wait for the remodel seemed positively interminable, yet CWHS is back in action, in full. The water is great, and the soaking pools weren't too crowded on the weekend in the middle of the day. CWHS has a lot of character, and now is more cleaned up, and has an "up to date" feeling. I would have come regardless,... More

The renovation has made a big difference. It looks like they are investing a bundle trying to bring it back up to a nice stay to go along with the perfect pools. Don't expect a Marriott, but the newly remodeled rooms are very clean. Of course we don't come here for the rooms, we come here for the amazing water,... More

The water soaks into your body and melts your tension. Helpful and friendly staff. Clean rooms with an all access pass to soaking in the lithium under the cottonwood trees. Best value for most direct route to "supple muscle town"!

No kids in pool after 7 pm. We arrived at 6pm for the night and felt rushed so the kids could spend some time in the hot springs. Campsite could be nicer and cleaner. Paid way too much for less than 1 hour in hot springs and a spot on the gravel.

My husband and I have been to the springs many of times. We always enjoy the waters! very relaxing and therapeutic. Although, this last March we brought a couple of out of towners and stayed in one of their riverside cabins. The private pool next to the river was wonderful! The cabin however was a disgrace!!!! We arrived early and... More

The WiFi is non existent when you are in an upper floor room. The Smoke Detector was missing a battery, yes you all should check those items as I have been in a hotel fire once already with a non functioning Smoke Detector. The pools are either too cold or you have just one pool that is hot and one... More
