We stayed one night here, but when I checked in I made sure to ask if they had an available time slot in the morning for the hot spring. They did - at 7 am. Perfect!
When you check in you're given coupons for 2 complimentary draft beers and a 10% reduction off your meal bill along with your $100 room. I say use the beer coupons and toss away the 10% coupon because the restaurant's sub par. A much better place to eat is at the Kasino Club, across the road in Stanley proper.
Our room was on the second floor, which was a very good thing because it's a wooden, creaky building and I'm sure you'd suffer from people walking above your room. We had a microwave, but no fridge, in our room. The room looked a little dated, but was clean and comfortable. The air conditioner was noisy.
In the morning we went to reception and asked for the keys to the hot spring. We were given the keys and pointed out back to follow a path to the stream. They key unlocked the door to a wooden shack inside which was the hot spring. This is a natural hot water spring fashioned into a large jacuzzi-like pool. It's fabulous! One the west side were barn doors than could be opened to give a view over the Sawtooths while one soaked.
It appears that this motel is used primarily as a staging area for rafting trips and hardly anyone utilizes the hot spring. We had the place to ourselves. It's a must if you stay here.
