I have been here several times, and it is a nice hot springs (not sulfury smelling like most other hot springs). It's very picturesque (you overlook mountains). I stayed at the hotel as well (expensive, but since it's in the middle of nowhere, you don't have much of a choice unless you wanna drive back to one of the bigger cities like Salida). The hotel rooms are nice (clean, they provide shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, lotion, body wash, etc). The breakfast is good too. There are NO TVs in the rooms (just FYI....so bring stuff to do when you're not soaking in the springs). The spa is also nice, but pricey (I had a scalp treatment and massage...was good and the lady who did it was excellent)...I think it was on special for $130. I always meet interesting people (locals) when I'm here! Love this place and stop by every time I'm in Colorado!
