Pros outweigh the Cons

Loved that it was smaller and more adult oriented. No loud, splashing children tossing beach balls while you are trying to relax and enjoy the healing waters. Pools are lined... read more

This was our second trip to the hot springs. Very relaxing, enjoyable day. We would love to go back!

We stopped by Cottonwood hot springs on our third day of camping in the BV area and were very pleasantly surprised. Yes, it's a bit dated and hippie-ish, but that's the charm of it and probably what keeps the crowds down. They have 5 pools of varying temperatures and they all have benches in the water all the way around... More

Loved that it was smaller and more adult oriented. No loud, splashing children tossing beach balls while you are trying to relax and enjoy the healing waters. Pools are lined with natural stone which we found to be charming. The only down side was lack of modern bathroom facilities but it was worth this small inconvenience for the quality of... More

Though on the smaller side with 4 hot spring pools this place is great. Not too many people seem to know about this place, which was good for us as it wasn't crowded and had just the right number of people spreading across the pools. We did not make use of the hot tubs or dry sauna due to time... More

Loved the Inn, nice rooms with a nice view. The in-room fan was helpful. Loved the benches and rocking chairs, even though some could have used a little repair. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hot springs however, could use some updating. The changing rooms and showers had an odd odor, and could have been cleaner. Overall a nice... More

I really enjoy soaking at this hot springs. Its definately on the hippy side, but the water is nice. Usually always perfect temperatures, and the lithium makes a nice "feel good" mineral content. I try to go on weekday mornings when there's less of a crowd, and in the winter. If only the other guests would shut up! I'm there... More

Don't stay here for the cabins, stay here for the hot springs. Our cabin was pretty dated (which is my preference of decor) but it was worn out too. For $250 plus taxes a night ($275ish) I would expect much more. The beds were ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE!!! I have not ever slept in a more uncomfortable bed in my life. It... More

Super clean rooms with nice mountain view, very comfortable king bed. No air conditioning but ceiling fan and window fan kept room temp comfy. Nice little hiker's breakfast had bagels assorted cream cheeses, English muffin, fresh fruit, yogurt, and cereal. 5 refreshing shaded hot pools of varying Temperatures. Private cabins too. Cottonwood river sang us to sleep every night. See... More

I just went on a camping trip over the weekend and we stayed near the hot springs so decided to check it out. It's $20 for adults and you get a wrist band when you go in so you can leave and come back again which I think is a lovely perk because they are open until midnight! I would... More

They did a great job with fooling you on the website.. It's a rundown hotel, small pools, weeds, hardly any chairs, port o pot...we drove an hour n a half....so disappointing. We turned around.. Run away... If I could give negative stars I would!!
