We travelled to Sierraville through Sierra Nevada on the last day of April. There were still frozen lakes on the way. From Lake Tahoe we continued to Truckee and then to our destination. The resort with the hot springs is next to the small town and one can enjoy the hot water around the clock, with or without a swimming...

Sierra Hot Springs was a trip we made because on our way to East. We did some research and stayed in one of the rooms (space room, I believe) in the house. I must say it was nice and quiet. There is a shared kitchen with fridges and stoves and everyone was very respectful. Patrons were polite and well-mannered. We...

We've been visiting Sierra Hot Springs for over 20 years and find it a great retreat. We have camped - beautiful, quiet, easy access to the meadow springs with sand on the bottom. We have stayed in the lodge - friendly folks around, nice to lie on the couches and read. We've stayed at the Globe Hotel in town (less...

Didn't want people with money to spend a 120 mile drive to this place but thank you for the wasted gas. Tired to pay but the late night guy didn't let us and said we could go in the hot springs cause it was late.

I have stayed at Sierraville Hot springs in the campground three times and the first two times where okay and it was peaceful and reasonably clean even though the campground tend to be dusty. However last year and then again this year the place was crowded and unsanitary. Why? Because from labor day onward many people returning from the burning...

Although I really like the setting and how quite the place is I find it very disturbing and almost gross that people don't put towels underneath when they sit on the chairs with their bare butts!!!!!! Ive gave the lady a feedback and she had an attitude, she was defensive and she said that that "it is clothing optional and...

Very quaint, relaxing and refreshing place. It's clothing-optional, and most people opt for it, so beware. You can camp on the premises. The fee is somewhat steep, but to be honest, the staff seems a bit relaxed about it. The most popular spring looks like a swimming pool, which is a tad unromantic, but there is a little round really...

Very unsanitary. After going here I got a really bad cold. Can not say it was from soaking here, but the hygiene of the people here, and there were people here with colds and who knows what on the day I went here was something to be desired.

Sierra Hot Springs was a trip we made because of our love of their sister facility at Harbin Hot Springs. Sierra Hot Springs did not disappoint. The little cafe there served amazing food and coffee. You definitely will not go hungry there. There is camping available there as well as rooms to rent. The springs itself is much smaller than...
