I stayed upstairs in a building across the street from the main place. I've been to T or C several times so I know it's "Funky Town." But I do expect cleanliness, a decent bed and linens. Bed was comfy. The bathroom was not clean, there were hairs in the shower, and worn holes

We are very glad you enjoyed the springs. Our pet policy is $25 for the first pet and $15 for each pet after, we gave you a discount on the first of $15. Always let us know if your room isn't to your liking - we have several unique rooms that may fit your needs better. We hope to see you again.

I am still confused. Are the baths in the rooms or is there a public soaking area?
Hi, the baths are in the office building called the spa. There are six private baths made out of thick cement to keep in the heat. The water is changed for each use. You also have a small sitting room room to dry off and change that is connected to the bath. The baths are all complementary. Sid bryan, owner

"Check it out online or call"
"To be near the soaking tubs, choose a room in the original building."
"Get the rooms in the main building and not the one across the road"
"Several annexes - to be close to action choose the rooms nearest the baths/guest lounge"
