I've been struggling on how to rate this property. The hot baths are grand, a unique and rewarding experience, and we will return just for those. The public bath (in a room that you reserve for an hour for privacy) is amazing, with a water fall that is an excellent massage tool, and very hot water than drains the day's strains away. The water is hot (106F in the pool, 108Fin the falls said the attendant). Same hotel water available in very large tubs/pools in the rooms -- I measured ours at 6x6 feet but with a diagonal cut. That hot minteral water and both public and in-room pools was very good and worth the visit. The rest of the hotel is not much: a 1950s road-side motel modernized, but it still feels like a 1950s road-side motel. Decor has cheezy Holiwood tie-ins that are pretty meaningless. The property needs more modernization to bring the decor and rooms up to modern travel standards.
