I am a long-time visitor to the caves, but will never return after being treated so poorly by the Indian Hot Springs Staff. I left a book in the lounge-area outside the women's caves, right on the magazine table. When I called to ask if...More

Indian Hot Springs is not upscale, fancy, or swanky. I love it for that. This place actually encapsulates what Colorado is to me. Mellow, beautiful, and a little rough around the edges. I am a native and have been visiting the hot springs since I...More

Came here because a friend that used to live in Denver told us about it. The site isnt impressive. Rustic and old as stated from others. Dingy. Some like that, some dont. The prices were fine, but the changing rooms and showers were very small....More

During my weekend visit, my friend had been wanting to check this place out since she moved to Denver. It was definitely relaxing, after a much busy and adventurous few days. We came the first weekend of October, so the warmth of the hot springs...More

This was a great girl’s getaway for a hot springs experience in a charming CO town. Don’t expect the Ritz - some things are a bit dated, but everything was clean and comfortable (except the bed was on the hard side). The large hot springs...More

The pictures of the pool area are accurate. We visited on a Sunday morning. It was a little crowded but not too bad. We enjoyed the pool area. My friends and I purchased the caves and pool combo. The caves were stifling hot. I have...More

$33 Monday-Thursday and $34 Friday-Sunday. Gotta remember the private baths are rented by the hour but the pool on that combo is good for any time during your stay.
