“Interesting and Scenic Setting for This Inn and Spa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

We had a very enjoyable one night stay at this somewhat curious and nostalgic resort. We stayed in a Cliffside room which was basic but comfortable with a fridge and microwave, nice bed and TV. The views from the patio were very nice with gorgeous sunrises/sunsets. We enjoyed walking the grounds and had an excellent dinner at the restaurant. There is a full bar and prices seemed reasonable to us. Staff was friendly and helpful.

The next morning we drove to the newer spa building and swam in the 96 degree adults only pool and two of the hotter springs "tubs". This facility was nice with clean locker rooms, steam rooms, a small snack bar, etc.

We were there in the off season (Sep 25) so it was not crowded and some of the older facilities were closed for the season. We would return for a one or two night stay.

Room Tip: This resort is spread out over several acres. The Cliffside (recommended) and Hillside motel units a...

The resort was fantastic. The hot springs felt so good. The only complaint was the food. When we return, we will consider going to the nearest town for something to eat. I may give the restaurant another chance, I just don't know.

Room Tip: The Lodge was very nice. I would like to try one of the Cabins next time.

the hot springs facilities themselves, pools, saunas and massage were excellent. The hotel room was below average in both being clean and well maintained. Our broken wall lamp was never repaired in our 3 nite stay. We had to ask to have shampoos and coffee restocked, and the front desk girl did not care..

This was a lucky find. Just by chance we stumbled across this place. The backdrop for this place is awesome. While you are soaking in there pool you are surrounded by the mountains. It had just dusted the tops of the peaks, so it added to the beauty. This resort has the historic pool house across the river from the new spa and retreat house. If you stay in one of their rooms or one of the cabins you get access to the spa house with lockers and showers. They also have a restaurant on site that had pretty good food, but lacked enough servers. Which requires patience especially if you are really hungry.
I am under the impression that this resort has undergone some renovations. I think that this is true and they are working some of the bugs out. Our fridge didn't work in our room and smelt like it had old rum cooking in the fridge. The room we stayed in was part of the older section, but it had been updated with a new bathroom and sink.
Would I plan to go back. Yes! I enjoyed soaking in the hot springs and thought that this was a nice place to stay. Plus there is a lot to do in this area.

Room Tip: Please have patience with the wait staff in the restaurant. They have good food. Plus you're the...

We went to Mt. Princeton hotsprings on recommendation of the conceige at our hotel in Breckenridge. The hotsprings wasn't crowded, however it can be so during certain times of the year, summer vacation season in particular. I would recommend going during the off season, September or October. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool was comfortable and not too hot. The pricing was good also.

The naturally beautiful setting could be so much more. We were there for my son's 10th birthday. We chose to stay in the lodge in one of the smaller rooms for the 2 of us. The room seemed like
it needed some freshening and although I inquired several times we were not able to get the
light that was not working repaired. The bracket that held the curtain back was falling out of the
wall and the carpet seemed to need a good wash. The staff was fine and the hot spring pools nice.
The restaurant was completely lacking. The menu promised tasty dishes but the food was disappointing. My dinner had to be returned because it was luke warm and the next morning
my son had a fly lying face up in the hashbrowns. Someone in management needs to take
a good hard look at the facility and update and bring this establishment up to a higher level.

We picked this place after being cancelled in Estes Park because of the floods, and wanting to go to a "hot springs". We booked a cliff side cabin, and were disappointed at first- the room was pretty basic, the fridge didn't work, and it was more like a motel than a cabin. But the view was spectacular, and the patio being shared (basically a long concrete slab for all the rooms) was no big deal. The restaurant was also not great, but convenient I suppose- the soup and bread were great- skip the entrees! The springs themselves were great, you MUST go into the river and check out the experience, I have never heard or done anything like that- amazing. After our initial not so great impression, spending time at the hot springs and seeing the stars from our patio at night were great, and the next day we were able to stay at the springs after checking out as long as we wanted; and we would have stayed a day or 2 at least longer if we didn't have to go back to Denver and fly home to Florida. There was a lot more to do and the surroundings were amazing!
