“Enjoyable evening”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Traveled through Tecopa years ago and always wanted to come back. It is not fancy but clean and comfortable. No tv, no problem. Sitting outside in the early evening watching the birds and bats was wonderful. It was so quite and very relaxing. The lady that checked us in told was about Pastels Bistro and we were looking forward to our meal. The meal was a great suprise, it was delishes! Luckly I brought my own wine. Sitting outside after dinner was amazing, there was no moon so the stars were bright!
The hot springs were right next to our room and they are private, sparkling clean and silky. The temperture of the water was perfect. We are so coming back again. One suggestion, coffee.

Room Tip: Take water and supplies, there were no services in town, that we saw.

We just got home from an incredible week at Tecopa Hot Springs Resort in CA. Went for 3 days stayed 7. Soaked in natural mineral hot springs at motel & out in the streams and mud ponds. hiked, got massages and went to China Date Ranch. Ate incredible food at Pastel's Bistro. The people there made us feel like one of the family. Came back TOTALLY relaxed. NO cells, tv just peace and quite and LOTS of stars! Never even made it to Death Valley 40 miles away so going back in April. To be honest, going back via Death Valley because once we get there we won't leave until we have to go home.

Room Tip: room 11 has a door that goes directly into one of the hot pools.

We stayed in the RV resort. The hot tubs were cold and a long uphill walk. Nothing going for this rv resort at all. We were going to stay a week and ended up staying one night. We would have left immediately but we were both too tired to unhook everything and find a new location for Christmas. Very disappointing.

Room Tip: we did not stay in the hotel - we stayed at the rv resort attached to it.

Our room was clean but short on amenities: we didn't expect a TV, but there was also no clock, radio, kleenex, nor any cleaning during our 2-night stay. Worst of all was the heating system: it was very loud and cycled on and off frequently during the night, so it was hard to sleep. And the tap water smelled sulphury. On the plus side, the hot tubs were the great: perfect temperature, clean and soothing after a long hike (and no smell). The food at the Bistro was wholesome and delicious, if a bit overpriced, with friendly service and atmosphere. If you stay here, don't forget to go to China Ranch date farm, and do the hike from there -- magical!

This motel in the desert is spare but quite clean. Biggest problem is that the mattresses are awful! The mineral springs tubs, right beside the rooms, are sparkling clean and straight from the earth. Pastels Bistro (closed Tue/Wed) is excellent and such a rare find in this little town out in the desert.

Quiet place by Death Valley. The rooms are ok, nothing special and a bit worn down. It's not bad, but not really worth the money we paid for the night ($110 without breakfast). The hot springs tubs are a plus. Unfortunately the famous bistro was closed at the time we were there, so we had to drive to Shoshone.

As is true with most non-chain motels, there is an element of adventure. They generally have far more personality, and a few quirks. We enjoyed spending the night at the Tecopa Hot Springs Resort.
We picked Tecopa because we had spent the previous night in Beatty (north of Death Valley), all that day in Death Valley, and were driving to the Mojave/Joshua Tree the next day, so Tecopa was the logical place to spend the night. We had considered staying in the larger town of Pahrump, but, it was 45 minutes out of our way and the majority it's restaurants (and all of it's hotels) were part of casinos (which we have no interest in).
There is very little in Tecopa. It's at the junction of two state highways, has mineral springs & some interesting scenery, and it has a large number of RV parks. There are no restaurants or grocery stores. There is a bistro at the resort, but it was closed the night we were there - - so, we had to drive to Pahrump for dinner afterall. The main area of Tecopa Springs has a spring fed bath house, but since the resort had it's own, we did not use it (and I don't know what it's like or what it costs).
At the resort, the water from the spring is run into 'hot-tub sized' pools. The water is not actually 'hot', it's warmer than a swimming pool, but cooler than a bath. I must say that it felt great to relax in the spring-tub after a day sight seeing at Death Valley.
The resort itself seems 75% 'RV Park' and 25% 'motel'. It has, I think, a large regular RV clientele, as the people checking-in ahead of me were frequent/repeat customers. The lady at the desk was friendly, and helpful, and there was quite a lot of (local?) artist's work in the desk building and around the property. The resort and buildings are not new, but the room we had was large, clean and well maintained with a good air conditioner unit. The bathroom was clean and in good shape - be careful as the tub is higher than is sometimes the norm, and I slipped (without incident) stepping out of the tub. The room has a television and a VCR - but there is no television reception in that part of the desert. This was not an issue for us --- as, we don't watch much TV, however, it could be an issue if traveling with children.
We awoke to the sound of owls - more than I remember hearing at one time.
