Accessing T or C's hot springs is an uneven experience. Just driving through town, with its old and sometimes deteriorating or abandoned buildings, just to access the area with hot springs, would probably be unsettling to some. While the businesses near the I-25 interchanges (I believe that there are two at opposing ends of business I-25) tend to be newer... More

One of our favorite places in town. We are locals and this is where the locals want to go. There are private pools overlooking the river. Pools with different temperatures as well. The folks keep the place looking nice and are always improving its beauty.

It was recommended to us by the hotel owner (Rockett Inn) and we decided to take the waters for an hour. It was amazing. Really hot water, a view over the Rio Grande .... lots of wildlife to watch.

The new private pools are the most beautiful I've ever seen and the mineral water is hot enough to soak your pain away. The views of the river and surrounding mountains makes for a wonderful 50 minutes. Kind of pricey, but worth it, in my opinion.

I was given a $50 gift certificate for Riverbend Hot Springs, I showed up in my swim trunks and they wouldn't honor it. I came back the next time with the buyer of the gift certificate and they said it was all straightened out. Went back again in my trunks and they again wouldn't honor the gift certificate. This place... More

The staff was very nice, but the place is very small. The rooms are basic and could use some updating. The town is very old and some shops are out of business. There was one shop ( Martha's) the two ladies that run the shop where very helpful. The views of the Rio Grand was nice. People floating down the... More
