The Inn at Ojo Caliente hot springs is a historic hotel that has been updated for comfort and convenience. It is exceptionally reasonable because with a stay at the hotel or any of the more modern cabins or houses one also has access to all the public pools, the steam room and the sauna. There are four different pools with various minerals in each pool, as well as a swimming pool and, in the summer - a mud bath. For a small fee one can also get a milagro wrap - which I really enjoy and recommend. One can also get a massage, a facial or take a yoga class. There are also camping facilities. The complex is located in an area that provides hiking and biking opportunities. I go there at least once a year and more often if I have the opportunity - it is my favorite form of R & R. The atmosphere is congenial to meeting others and visiting with them. The entire facility is a quiet zone so it is possible to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet and it is an adult facility. Day trips to Ghost Ranch, Taos, Bandalier National park or lunch at El Farrilato in nearby El Rito are perfect for afternoons, after you have soaked, with plenty of time to soak again in the evening. For those who prefer a private romantic getaway there are private rooms with private pools. They also have facilities for weddings or group celebrations or get togethers. I have been to Ojo Caliente at least once a year for the past 8 years and recommend it highly.
