PROS: -Good little hot springs resort, with a nice vibe. -Reasonably priced admission fee, and some Salida lodgings have discount arrangements for their referrals. -Scenic setting. -3 pools with different water temperatures -Can stay in the hotel, or in cool-looking yurts -- which we understand are quite popular, even in winter (although we didn't stay overnight in either but just...

Spent two quiet evenings at this spa. Three soaking pools, sauna and spa treatment rooms. My wife had a 90-minute facial and I an hour therapeutic massage. Both were excellent practitioners and reasonable prices. Rooms clean, comfortable and also reasonable. We'll be back!

The yurt is heated in the winter and cool in the summer. The hot springs are set with great views to enjoy. The staff is helpful. 2 resident owls greet us every time we arrive. They provide robes, towels, breakfast. There is a medication walk to do. There is a conference center for retreats or a small 50 - 70... More

Found Joyous Journey Hot Springs by accident. We love a good soak so we stopped to check it out. The daily rate for the hot spring pools was $15 per person per day, seniors $12. Not bad at all, the pools are very nice, clean and pleasingly hot. The view of the snow capped Sangre de Cristo Mountains on a... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review of your recent stay. One of the positive things about our location is the peaceful remoteness. But with that comes the challenge of finding food, as you mentioned. There is normally an option 5 minutes away, the Steel Horse, but they are seasonal and had closed for winter the... More

We visited in an RV. When we arrived and enquires about price, a very, very nice lady at the front said that it was $55 per night. Wow, that seemed expensive! We asked what that included and she said 50 amp hookup and soaking for that day and the next day and breakfast! Wow what a deal. Since we were... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback on your recent stay. Like you, many guests think the price is a little high at first until they realize all that comes with the package and then, again like you, are quite pleased with the value. It is our intention to offer many different lodging options, all with... More

I must admit I was very hesitant when my boyfriend wanted to bring me here and stay in a yurt. However, upon arrival there is just something about Colorado that makes you want to unplug from the world, and this was the greatest place to do so. I LOVED every second of the trip. It's 3 hours or so from... More

We visited Joyful Journeys as a day use activity as we have in the past, and we love it. To soak in any of the three different- temp pools while gazing at the bluest of skies, watching birds fly about and taking in the native meadow foreground and the mountain vista background is bliss. The soaking pools and bath house... More

Stayed in a yurt while on a trip to see the Orient mine and celebrate a birthday/anniversary. The yurt was most comfortable and we loved the pampering. We had mentioned to the staff that it was our friends' anniversary and they surprised us all when they put fresh flowers and a note in their room (made us look good). Being... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way home from the sand dunes camping and absolutely loved it. There are three pools (small) with different temperatures. The views are amazing as you are relaxing. The staff was friendly and helpful and even let us walk through before purchasing our pass. I will return for sure!
