We were so excited about our stay here based on the web page info. It says they can't change the historical structure of he buildings because they are in a national forest. Great, love that. However, they have made NO attempt to make updates of any kind. It says on their page "Our mission is to provide a peaceful and...

Four of us stayed in one of the cabins, although there wasn't much space in the cabin it was clean and tidy. Kitchen had everything we needed and we cooked dinner that we had purchased in Buena Vista, but could have easily phoned for takeaway. The facilities at the spa were great, lovely sitting area with games and books etc....

This place isn't much of much but it is fairly inexpensive and comfortable place to while away a couple of hours and relax. I haven't ever actually stayed at the hotel just dropped in for a soak while I have been camping in the area.

Staff is LOUSY and RUDE!! We were just there this weekend...Drove all the way from Denver to check it out and the man at the counter was so very RUDE. We brought our two children along to enjoy and his comment to me was "I hope you know this is NOT a place for children to play and splash around!"...

We just stayed one night and it was an average experience. If you Are going for the amenities, this is not the place for you, if you want to go and soak, enjoy the gorgeous view of the mountains and the stars then this is the place. The staff are really laid back and very respectful. If you stay the...

We stayed 2 nights in a king room. This was our second visit; the first was several years ago. The room was improved: new floor in the bathroom, nice comforter; however the sheets were 180-thread-count scratchy. The pools were immaculate. Employees were helpful. The tip envelope said that the housekeepers are volunteers - seemed odd. Overall it was a good...

I have been a frequent visitor of Cottonwood Hotsprings over the past 10 yrs. In fact I purchased the punchcards when they were sold. Used to love the place for its laid back atmosphere, and the high quality of the water. Over the last 2 years, there has been a steady and noticeable decline in the cleanliness and quality of...

I went to the Hot Springs with a couple of friends while visiting in Buena Vista. The massage & pools were relaxing, but the overall look of the grounds leaves a whole lot to be desired. Granted, this place doesn't claim to be a state of the art spa, but a little TLC around the property wouldn't hurt. It just...

I literally just got back from Cottonwood hot springs near Buena Vista, Colorado and it was one of the best trips of my life. I guess it depends on what you want from a vacation...if you want prima donna treatment, go to a hotel I guess. But I found the service to be fine, and the people who worked there...

I have never been so miss treated in my life.
