we were pleasantly surprised to find the hot springs at Fairmont in Anaconda very nice. i havent been there since i was a kid and remembered them to be a bit run down and creepy. well not anymore. the outdoor pools were clean well kept and with various temperatures in diffrent pools. the bar and restraunt was nice with a nice patio. the kids LOVED the waterslide that kept them occupied. we had our RV so we did not stay in the hotel but we stayed at the adjacent Fairmont RV park. the owners werent quite open yet for the season but they were very accomodating and allowed us to stay there anyhow. the facilities were nice, clean and very well kept. we will be back. It was the highlight of our trip. we hit a couple diffrent Montana hot springs on this trip and it was by far the best. the bottom of our list was Quinns Hot Springs in Paradise Montana. It was filthy. see our review under Quinns Hot Springs so you DONT get them mixed up.
