We stayed in the honeymoon suite one night. The suite is about the same size as an average hotel room but has a king bed (very comfortable), large two person tub, and nice large balcony. We enjoyed the room and especially enjoyed the four hot springs tubs. The rating is 4 instead of 5 stars because it would have been... More

Dear Brook B, Our Honeymoon Suite does have some wonderful views from the private balcony. It is such a wonderful place to relax and enjoy an early morning cup of coffee while watching the rest of the world slowly wake up. Soaking in the morning in our mineral hot springs is also an experience second to none. Because of the... More

Very nice, clean hotel. The staff was very welcoming. The room was clean and had nicer than average toiletries. The hot springs are really excellent. The tubs are clean and well maintained. So relaxing after a day of Jeeping and playing! It's withing walking distance of downtown so you can walk to everything. I'd recommend this to anyone.

The hot tub, the pleasant room, and the views were wonderful. The receptionists were friendly and recommended restaurants and trails for us. The location was near town so we could walk everywhere and enjoy the town.

Three of us stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment, no. 200. Wow, it exceeded our expectations in every way. It's enormous! The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom with two showers (!) and a walk-in wardrobe that is about the size of our smallest bedroom at home in the UK. The other bedroom is also spacious with a bathroom... More

We spent 2 nights at the Box Canyon and, as usual, our room was CLEAN, comfortable and the stay was perfect! Upgrades have been made to the rooms since we first were there many years ago and they make the stay even better!

Had a wonderful time here and felt like royalty soaking in our own hot springs tub. This place is probably very popular in winter, but we aren't ski-types, just on a springtime road trip through the mountains. Speaking of - Mountains in all directions, and a waterfall view from the room. Nice room and GREAT, pleasant service. Breakfast was a... More

Dear Joanne L, Our rooms in the courtyard area of the property are some of our most popular.
