“Reborn and back to Form”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014

The wait for the remodel seemed positively interminable, yet CWHS is back in action, in full. The water is great, and the soaking pools weren't too crowded on the weekend in the middle of the day. CWHS has a lot of character, and now is more cleaned up, and has an "up to date" feeling. I would have come regardless, yet the place is improved. It is a magical area, that is well suited to the funky charm that is CWHS.

The renovation has made a big difference. It looks like they are investing a bundle trying to bring it back up to a nice stay to go along with the perfect pools. Don't expect a Marriott, but the newly remodeled rooms are very clean. Of course we don't come here for the rooms, we come here for the amazing water, pool layout and the people.

The water soaks into your body and melts your tension. Helpful and friendly staff. Clean rooms with an all access pass to soaking in the lithium under the cottonwood trees. Best value for most direct route to "supple muscle town"!

Been Coming here for 20+ years. Recently remodeled & upgraded. Owner Cathy Manning very Wrm & hospitable. Staff Very Attentive. Stayed in the Private Cabin with 3 Bedrooms with a Hot Water Pool right on the patio overlooking the river! Water perfect, Crystal Clear & oh soooo WARM! The Sauna worked perfect causing lotsa sweat. Cottonwood is very GREEN. New Installation of 2 Wind Generators & 4 Huge Solar Collectors. This is a real GEM, that continues to please. If you wanna get AWAY FROM IT ALL.......Come here......You wont be dissapointed!

No kids in pool after 7 pm. We arrived at 6pm for the night and felt rushed so the kids could spend some time in the hot springs.
Campsite could be nicer and cleaner.
Paid way too much for less than 1 hour in hot springs and a spot on the gravel.

My husband and I have been to the springs many of times. We always enjoy the waters! very relaxing and therapeutic. Although, this last March we brought a couple of out of towners and stayed in one of their riverside cabins. The private pool next to the river was wonderful! The cabin however was a disgrace!!!! We arrived early and it seemed to take only 10-15 minutes for the staff to clean the cabin from the guests before us. Ewww!! The floor had not been swept. The shower had mold, filth and hair in it. The windows had plastic on them so you could not enjoy the fresh air at night when you slept. The bedding was dingy and smelly. The furniture looked like it came from a dumster on the side of the road. I can honestly say that this was probably the most disgusting place I have ever stayed! I will never return as a overnight guest, however will return for their waters!

Room Tip: Stay Elsewhere!

The WiFi is non existent when you are in an upper floor room. The Smoke Detector was missing a battery, yes you all should check those items as I have been in a hotel fire once already with a non functioning Smoke Detector. The pools are either too cold or you have just one pool that is hot and one pool that is very hot. The winter is much different than the summer but just as crowded on the weekends. The part time clerk who fills in while the Manager is away has to go to Customer Service classes to be less rude and more customer oriented. The quoted $ for the room was not recorded on the reservation so we had to do a little convincing to get the correct room rate. The charge of $112/$102 was not worth what they are offering. The place is constantly under remodel and always looks like a crash zone.

Room Tip: Stay someplace cheaper and go for the day, only weekdays are worth the price.
