Went twice last week using day passes ($3 each on ladies day) ($5 each next time). What a bargain. The first day we went the outside temp was 56 F and very windy so slipping into the 104 degree hot spring water was wonderful. Since it was cool there was no one else in that hot tub and maybe 10 people grand total using the other pools.
I was very thankful to have read reviews of the area on Tripadvisor and booked a hotel in Palm Desert and rode up on route 10 each day rather than book a local hotel. The town of Desert Hot Springs is frankly pretty seedy looking. Having said that we did scope out the other day pass mineral bath possiblities and they looked OK. Swiss Health looked ok from the outside as well as Sam's campground on Dillon road but
we were well satisfied with the many hot tub choices at Desert Hot Springs Spa. The people who work there were very nice and explained how everything worked. We rented towels ($2) and changed in their changing rooms which were fine not luxurious but what you might find at a public pool. But for $3 we were very satisfied. Dry sauna was right there but we didn't get a chance to use it, looked good though. Not sure how the treatments were. The treatment rooms are right off the pool and looked OK.
Drink some of their local water while there, it's award-winning!
For the price it's a great way to try out the hot springs experience to see if you like it. We liked it so much we booked a day at Two Bunch Palms Resort which is maybe a mile away but costs $300 plus for a day in their hot springs and treatments!
