We called to reserve a tub site and were told there were three sites available. We asked to be booked into the nicest one, which we were told was #2. We arrived and this is what we found. The black that you see on the tub is mold and the rim was slimy. It was nasty. I suspect that there are not actually two tub sites crummier than this one, though I could be wrong. It is more likely that they have a hard time booking #2, so they unload it onto unsuspecting newcomers. They kept our $50, but it was worth it to put as many miles away from them as we could get before nightfall. Steer clear of this squalid dump and the folk who operate it.
This establishment is a labor of love by the owner. The lodging and springs use were done years ago but eventually fell into disuse and abandonment. Relatives of the original owners rebuilt the facility into what it is today...a somewhat funky but enjoyable place to relax in the middle of nowhere. Friendly staff and adequate rooms. Sharing a bath with the room next door was a downer but tolerable. Hot springs were great. Outstanding breakfast! Trailer sites available.
My wife and I spent one night here in one of the inn rooms. The person who registered us was very friendly, explained everything and toured us around the grounds. He was part of the family that owns the place. The tubs are tiled and various sizes. Water temp is easily adjustable. Clothing optional and quite private. The only negative was the breakfast. Undercooked potatoes, small, flat, tasteless piece of quiche, some chopped fruit and a small pastry. I'm a bit of a foodie so take that with a grain of salt. You'll also need to share a bathroom unless you get room #7. I really liked the decor - old West, antiques, beds with headboards, armoires. Heated floors - from the springs I suppose.
Stopped off here for one night on the way to Vegas from Yosemite. We originally wanted an rv space with private hot tub but unfortunately none were available so we booked a room instead. As soon as we arrived I loved the place! All still looks very 1940s, some great photo opportunities if that’s what you like. A bit confused with the negative comments saying the man who runs the place being rude as he couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful with me and my husband. He showed us around and explained about the hot tubs. We were lucky and had a nice big one to ourselves. Also breakfast is very nice! I highly recommend this place for a cool fun stop off in between travelling. Would definitely stay here again!
The trailer/tent sites were private, quiet, and had great night sky views. The hot tubs were fresh-hot water.. no chlorine. The help was courteous. The location is fun.. off the main-path for sure, but well worth a visit. BTW - the porta-pottys were clean and convenient.
