If what you need is Hot water, don't care about how clean the locker room is, and or whether or not there are creatures/bugs in the water, than this place is fine. I just needed a hot soak after a long drive. was not impressed, but liked the very hot pool

It's hard to beat the beauty of this spa experience. In a recent three-day visit, my husband and I enjoyed the mountains in the distance, Colorado blue skies, the crescent moon in the night sky, and falling snow flakes as we soaked by ourselves at 8am in the 103 degree pool our last day. The hotel rooms have no TVs,... More

Where to begin. Joyful journey is about 2 1/2 hours away from our house. It is definitely worth the drive. The mountains create A fantastic backdrop to some Beautiful landscape. The staff are very friendly and helpful. And they serve breakfast in the morning if you stay the night. The last time we went, we rented a yurt. The yurts... More

The setting was lovely, the pools were relaxing but the customer service was non-existent. I had reserved two tipis for my grandchildren. Upon check-in, we discovered one of the cots had a broken frame and was not usable. The girl at the desk assured us it would be replaced within 5 minutes. It was not replaced at all and my... More

We stayed here while playing the Crestone Music Fest in August. Man, this was a highlight of the summer. First off, kudos to the staff to getting a sleep deprived touring band checked in early for some much needed rest. The rooms were bright, airey, and roomy, with über comfortable beds and clean modern bathrooms. The breakfast was tasty and... More

I want to give a higher rating than just 2 stars, but for the purposes that we were there and the quality of the place, I really can't. It has a lot of good qualities, like beautiful views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains and a few nice outdoor pools. My husband and I were only visiting for a couple... More

Had an excellent, professional massage at Joyful Journey Hot Springs. Therapist (Franni) was very knowledgable in various techniques and really knew her stuff. The massage therapies offered by Joyful Journey are truly professional and legit. Highly recommended.

While remote locations are great for getting away, this remote property needs to do a better job of providing food as convenience stores and restaurants are very few & very far between with very limited hours.

Booked for 3 nights based on Web revues and pictures. Big Mistake! This property is in the middle of field in an open valley facing mountains several miles away. The sight plan does not focus on the mountain scenes, the room layouts backward, not facing the shown courtyard but faces a ugly unkept field with no view of the mountains!... More
