Walked down to these Hot Springs from the local RV site. You have to pick the pool by the degree of heat that you can stand. We tried them all though not for long as some of them were very hot.

Caveat emptor! We booked the blue house (5 people) for two nights. We paid $220 per night, prepaid with no cancellation (of course). It was filthy, run down, outdated, with slimy on the bottom pools and a film floating on the tops. One bedroom had...More

The rooms are clean and spacious (at least the one I stayed in was). My wife and I really liked staying here and it really helps that they have their own hot pools.

We always stay here when traveling between Montana and Nevada. I Love the quaint, old hospital-the rooms are adequate, very basic, shared bath. The staff has always been helpful and friendly and the breakfast is amazing!

Our room had spider webs, a leaking 'solarium', old doors, messed up light switches - and some cheesy 'faux fireplace' light on the wall. The heater should have been replaced in the 50's...the doors 'shut themselves' - the 'Hot Tub' took for-ever and a day...More

This inn is right in the middle of town. The place is rather run down, but there are seven pools that are different temperatures. Nice place to spend a couple hours.

This is my favorite spot to rest and relax while in Idaho. The pools are hot and authentic. The vibe is the best thing about this place. Very chill, laid back and comfortable. You can sense the history and some say that it's haunted. A...More
