“Went in reluctant. Left happy and very relaxed.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This place has a lot of bad reviews. The room is small but comfortable and clean. I loved the big shower. No phone in room is ok with me. There is a small tv. No microwave or fridge or coffee maker. Room seems a bit overpriced at $108.00. The hotel was booked solid for the weekend of the 23rd/24th. We had quite a few pools to ourselves on Friday afternoon but lots of people in the pools on Saturday. We had the best massages ever. The staff were friendly but also very busy. The locker rooms get alot of use. Bring flip flops! the walkways are very cold and there is alot of ice melt on them that hurts to walk on.
There were 2 trains on Friday night, one at 12am and another at 3:30am. Saturday night 3 trains. Fairly loud but only for 10 or 15 seconds then back to sleep. I think the trains add to the charm of the place. rest of the night was dead quiet.
I did get cell reception the whole time I was there. I only saw 3 pools that were hot tub shells, the rest were concrete and tile. Quite nice actually. I am planning our next trip already, I plan to rent the apartment above the locker rooms.

Located in a valley between Grandby and Kremling, this remote resort is an ok place for a quick and cheap getaway for some relaxation. It has some limitations we were not expecting....dont expect to get cell phone reception, wifi is only in the lodge and has many sites blocked. every room comes with ear plugs....for the train that comes by right in front of the lodge every 2 hours or so. Hot springs pools closes at 945pm. When we were there, tons of locals would come to over crowd the pools especially in the afternoon when people are done skiing. there are no food services there so you have to go into the little town for food which then you are limited to only 2 choices. Everything in town closes at 9pm. So if you want more choices for food, you will have to travel back into Grandby about 20 minutes away. No shopping in town so again, have to go back to Grandby. Don't expect much here.

Room Tip: There is no such thing as a good room here....mattresses were hard, electronic heaters made tons of...

This place offers a wide variety of services - from the 21 hot sulphur pools of all sizes and temperatures where you can luxuriously soak, socialize, or just be by yourself, to the family-friendly swimming pool, to the indulgent spa services. You can spend a couple hours using the pools, or spend a whole day taking advantage of all their services. Be sure to check out the "waterfall" pool and let the hot water pour over your back for a relaxing massage-like experience! For as little as $17.50 (12 and older) you can spend all day using all 21 pools. Great all year-round, it's espeically fun in the winter to go from the cold air into the hot pools.

The smell of the sulphur can be unpleasant, but the therapeutic value of the minerals make it worthwhile. Just make sure you shampoo your hair afterward to avoid any chemical interactions.

I've not stayed in any of their rooms, but they sound nice. Check out the website for a full list of all their services, prices and photos of the facilities.

This was our 4th or 5th trip there. Everytime we enjoy how quiet it is. They advertise 24 pools; when we weer there 16 were open. They never have them all, not sure why. It wasn't too crowded so it was okay. We love the M-A-T pool and the Rojo Pool the best. There are trains that go by and blow their horns, but it never bothers us; you are so relaxed you sleep right through it. Make sure to bring water bottles, as those are not provided, also a large towel and robe as the towels they provide are very very small and robes cost. They are good about placing salt and ice melt down, but flip flops can be helpful. The locker rooms are clean as well as the whole facility. The staff is helpful, but quiet also.

Room Tip: We have been placed in room 109 several times and it's a good room, but a tad far from the entra...

We have been here 4 or 5 times, but this time I was just pushed over my limit on how unkept and dirty the facilities continue to be. I don't expect this to be a high maintenance experience and the "floaties" in the hot tubs are even acceptable; part of the rustic, natural experence. However, the locker rooms are not maintained at all. There is carpet in the locker rooms which is completely soaked through to the floor boards. They have fans going inside the locker room to help dry the carpets I suppose, but a cold fan blowing in the middle of January in a locker room that isn't heated to begin with is ridiculous. The smell in the locker room is beyond the sulphur, but now mixed with mold and mildew. The lockers are old and rusted inside. I have never once noticed any employee walking the property to check on the conditions and the staff at the front desk is very unfriendly. We mentioned that the bathrooms could use some attention on our way out and the lady at the front desk chuckled. We go to a lot of hot springs pools but this one is by far the smelliest; I will never get the smell out of our towels, clothes, and after 4 days of showers the smell is still in my kids hair. Plan accordingly; don't expect to want to shower, make sure you bring flip flops for walking in the locker room and from tub to tub, bring clothes/suits/towels (or rent a towel) that you are okay with smelling like sulphur from now on, and your wallet. This place is expensive for what it is.

We came for an overnight, well worth the money spent. We drove in on a Fri am to use the springs both days. We stayed in the hotel strip by the train overnight. Bring a hair dryer & conditioner if you require it. Room is small, but cute. No tub, just a shower. Plenty of room for 2. We watched the TV for maybe 30 mins. It's tiny too. The train didn't wake us up. The bed was a queen & super comfy.

The hot springs are so nice. Some tubs are super hot. We did the springs then ate early dinner in Kremmling (dif post) & did the springs again in the evening, My hair froze! Woke up Sat am early to do the springs, then got ready for brunch in Kremmling again. Did the springs after brunch & headed back home. It's worth it to drive up early as you get 2 days of soaking. Yes, it smells, but it's a natural hot spring. I don't recommend for children. There are tubs for them, but they aren't allowed up on the higher one if under 12.

You can rent the private apt or cabin for more. I didn't care much for that. I would def come back in the future. Hoping a Groupon deal pops up. It was $118 for 1 night & got 2 days to soak. Bring your own towels for the tubs. They rent them for $2 each. The hotel ones aren't for tub use. Also bring bottled water, it gets hot & you need to stay hydrated. They charge $2/bottle & it's not that cold. Maybe bring a small cooler for your room to stash water & snacks. The staff is super nice. They offer coffee, tea & hot chocolate in the am. No breakfast, but have a microwave. They sell the cup of noodles & a few candy bars.

Room Tip: If you want to splurge, get the apt or cabin.

My sweetheart and I, along with my 16 year old daughter headed to the springs to have a fun birthday weekend. We stayed in the 1840s cabin, which we really enjoyed. The place does not look 1840s on the inside, but is super clean and well maintained (minus drippy kitchenette sink and phone jack with no cover) and decorated with rustic log furniture. The fireplace adds a nice ambience- make sure you open the flue before you light the logs they provide. We had the complimentary champagne and OJ in the morning. :-) This cabin is a great choice for a romantic weekend away! Catch the sunrise and sunet on the porch...so peaceful. And you can bring dinner back to the cabin and eat at the cozy little table with the fancy plates and glasses they set it with.

The pools are what you would expect from a natural, historic hot springs. Varying levels of heat dependent on which pool you are in. There was a nice variety of types of pools. Some of the pools are outdoors and some are inside the solarium area. Some are stone and very pleasant and natural looking and some are plastic and smooth. We enjoyed each. I especially liked the plastic ones for napping...they're easy on the arms when you lean back. Obviously, as the name would imply, there is a sulphur smell to the water/steam. This added to the natural experience (it smelled nothing like a harsh chlorine pool). And there are floating algea in many of the pools, which also goes along with the natural-ness of it. I found the locker room and pool areas to be VERY clean - that said, mineral rich water leaves minerals behind...maybe that is what other reviewers have interpreted as dirty?

The staff was nice to us, smiled, answered our questions, etc. Lots of signs about what not to do and 2, yes 2, places to leave tips (tips for doing what?).

Not much for kids under 12 to do here.

If you stay in the cabin and it's during cooler than summer weather, bring fuzzy boots, sweats, t-shirt and sweatshirt to wear to and from the pools. You can change in the locker room there. It's a short walk between the cabin and pools, but long enough to get cold again!

The towels they provide look small and thin, might want to bring your own beach towels.

Lodging seems to be overpriced. There is a campground right next to this place called Pioneer. I didn't see any tents, but there were several small RVs.

All in all, I'll definitely be going back knowing that this is NOT a "resort", but a natural, historic, hot springs that hasn't been spoiled by a corporation yet. :-)

Room Tip: The 1840s cabin was romantic and cozy. The views of the sunrise and sunset from the porch were beau...
