“Old Key West in the Southwest”
Reviewed March 6, 2011

Firewater Lodge is the place to visit when you want to kick back with someone special and enjoy life's pleasures in an environment that blends a little of old Key West with the desert southwest in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. T or C, as it is known to locals, used to be named Hotsprings and it is a truly one-of-a-kind place to soak your bones.The proprietor of Firewater Lodge, Richard Epstein, is a master craftsman who has created most of the rustic wood furniture found in the guest rooms. He has also built lovely soaking tubs that emulate ancient Rome in all of its hedonistic glory. Breakfast at the Happy Belly Deli, located on the property is included in the rate. For other culinary delights, the Café Bella Luca, located right next door to Firewater, is not to be missed. When your skin needs a break from the naturally hot spring water, a visit to T or C wouldn't be complete without touring the Geronimo Springs Museum with its world-class collection of prehistoric Mimbres pottery. There are also great art galleries, a book store, coffees shops and a juice bar. All this without the cost of a pricey spa vacation - what more could one ask?

Great service and clean rooms are only the start. Richard and Mourice and Tania were great. They sat with me and helped me find running and hiking trails and took great care of me. Plus you can't beat the mineral water. I loved the soaks. thanks guys.

Hot mineral tub in room---what more can you say? Quiet, comfortable, relaxing. A really nice place. Happy Belly Deli for breakfast is great.

We were very happy with our choice for lodging. We'd never been to T or C before but had heard that many of the local hotels piped the mineral water into the rooms. Fire Water Lodge is one such hotel. The rooms have been recently remodeled and there is a very large tub - perfect for soaking - in every room. Fire Water is affordable and pet-friendly, making it the perfect choice for a weekend getaway. It's also located on the main stretch of Broadway and is within walking distance to many great dining establishments and shopping destinations. We can't wait to visit again!

It is necessary to book your reservations months in advance if you are going on the week end especially for the summer months, but you will not be disappointed. I was impressed with the email follow up on my reservations and when they stated "No need to check in- your key is in the door" I was surprised and delighted when we arrived to find our key in the door and everything ready. We stayed in the Cactus Room which is actually 2 rooms- although it was just the two of us, this would be great for a family. There are toilets in each room which would make it convenient for a family. If you are sensitive to light - the curtains do not dark out the room and the lights are left on all night in the courtyard. If you are going to soak - there are 2 private rooms or an outside tub, you will walk across the courtyard. Next door to the Happy Belly Deli and a great Italian resturant Bella Luca behind the lodge.

My stay at the Fire Water Lodge was amazing. The room was beautiful and the mineral water tub was perfect! Inside the room or outside on the patio, this place is just calm and serene. The staff as well as others staying at Fire Water are extremely friendly. Everyone in the small town of Truth or Consequences is friendly beyond words. Perfect Get-a-way most definitely!!

Just what we needed for a rest from our busy lives! We were able to relax in the room in the hot mineral baths, eat excellent food and explore new sights. Truth or Consequences is one of our favorite destinations now.

If your goal is relaxation, this may be for you, too.
