Overnight suggestion, springs & rafting?

Hi - we are a family of 4 (kids are 10 & 11) and are looking to stay overnight in Pagosa Springs next May (28th). Any recommendations of where to stay - not super high end (we have kids), but certainly clean and comfortable. If we wanted to visit any hot springs while we are there, where should we go?

Also, I saw rafting options on the Mesa Canyon via Pagosa Outside - any feedback on this? I was looking at the family trip lasting 1/2 day...

Another option was to hike to Treasure Falls - how long should we allow for that?

Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide....

Look at staying at The Springs Resort. It's a modern resort with about two dozen hot springs pools on site right along the San Juan River. It's walking distance to the main part of town. We were through Treasure Falls a year ago and spent about an hour there even though it was raining hard. Very nice hike up to several viewpoints of the falls. You likely can hit it on your way in or out, depending on your route.

Others can help you on the rafting.

Have fun.

I too recommend "The Springs". Its not cheap, and some of the rooms are very much "high end", but they also have cheaper rooms. The middle upper tiers include nice kitchenettes. If you stay there you also get 24 hour access to the hot pools, so consider that cost when comparing this to alternatives.
