Hot Springs Lodge and Pool
Built on the same hill and with some of the original lumber from Leadville's famous Ice Palace, this Victorian inn features five guest rooms with private baths, two suites with jetted tubs for two that sit within the three story turret. The inn is full of Victorian antiques, Ice Palace mementos, and has antique quilts, stained glass windows and feather beds. A full gourmet breakfast, afternoon refreshments and snacks, and nightly turn-down service are all included. Garden Hot Tub!
I stayed at the Hotel and there are steps that go down from the Inn to the pool right across the street from the Inn. The Inn isn't very fancy, but it has a nice quaint feeling. I didn't expect the Hilton. I used the pool at night, the air was cool and the water is very warm on one end and the other end cooler. You can walk out of this pool and step into another pool next to it that has cooler water to swim. Nothing like being in Colorado soaking in a mineral pool with the stars shining above your head and a mountain on one end of the pool. Pool is mixed with pool water and natural spring water. Went into it during the day and it was just as nice.
This hotel is very dated and could use a lot of "sprucing up." It's dark and very uninviting. I found it WAY over priced for what you get. At $200 a night I expected a lot more. The walls are very thin so you can hear everything that's going on in the room next to you. Didn't get much rest at all between all the noise and the hard mattresses. The pictures of this hotel are VERY deceiving, it appears the hotel is right there with the pool but the building is actually the Spa and Athletic Club. The hotel is across the street from the pool and is not at all as attractive as the building shown. It is quite a walk to get to the pool from the hotel, you have to walk all the way around to the front of the athletic club to gain access to the pool. We drove to the pool, in winter the last thing you want to do is walk back to your hotel soaking wet. The continental breakfast is across the street in the Athletic Club as well, which was very inconvenient. Next time I go to Glenwood I will stay in another hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!
...we found it in an outdoor pool. But not just any outdoor pool. These two pools, combined, the size of several football fields, provided the perfect experience after a long day's drive and then setting up in our campground in cloudy, threatening weather. We drove into town, just a few minutes away on I-70, looking for this spot I had read about while trip planning. I am not a community pool person, but the thought of luxuriating in a 104˚ therapeutic pool and then cooling off in the immense 90˚ pool was just too tempting.
The pools are fed by the Yahweh Springs, a hot springs that sends 3 and a half million gallons of mineral-laced water into the system every day.
We visited on a Sunday, on a cloudy evening in October, so there were no crowd problems, though I imagine it might be a little wild during the summer or in prime times. The locker rooms were very clean, no problems whatsoever, spacious, and with plenty of showers and changing facilities.
You do need to be aware of the mineral build-ups on the sides of the pool, but that was to be expected, and really were no problem. I was stiff and tired from a 300 mile travel day, but left the pool after a couple hours feeling rejuvenated.
There are water slides (for a per ride fee), diving boards, swimming lanes, and a huge open area in the larger, cooler pool. Whirlpool chairs are available in the spa pool for a quarter, but I didn't see the need. The water was great as it was.
We loved our visit to this Colorado mountain town. They have the best Hot Springs Pool in the world, Rafting, a top ten Show Cave, but most of all we love their Chuck Wagon Dinner Show. The BBQ food was great but the show was awesome!!!! Joe, Scotty, and Vern were at the Flying W Ranch but now they are at the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. They are still the best cowboy band in the U.S. After the show we all went down to the world largest hot springs pool and melted. The kids loved it!
I love the hot springs pool!!! It's very nice. If you want to relax in 104 degree water, go there. There's also a cold pool so cool down in and in the summer there is also a water slide that's pretty fun. I believe anyone who'll go there, will love it!!
This pool is one of the most relaxing places in the world. I love being in the hot pool with the steam rising through a snowstorm in the wintertime. The locker rooms are heated with radiant floor heating, so the floors are always dry. The rooms are quite nice and many have balconies overlooking the town. For a family this is a good value because two day passes for the pool are included with the room. Many interesting activities in the nearby areas. It is apparently too rugged for people from Redding California and I recommend they avoid the Colorado mountains altogether.
This place is wonderful! We have two children - 12 & 14 who are at the age where its hard to please them. They just loved the spa, they could wander off to do there own thing without me having to worry about them. There are two huge water slides (they charge you by the ride, no all day passes) my son loved the diving boards and the fact that you can stay in the spa until 10pm.
If you go in the fall or winter it is very romantic at night with all the lights on as you are lost in all the steam rising from the spa. They have soft music coming from speakers around the spa which helps you relax even more so.
The lodge itself is nothing fancy, I would rate it on the scale of 'one of the nicer' holiday inn's. The rooms are very clean and the nights are quiet.
You are given coupons for free breakfast, cereal, juice, coffee, bagels etc..Or you can pay a little extra to have a breakfast to order with eggs, bacon etc. Breakfast is served in the spa section so you have a small stroll from the lodge across the road to the spa.
Would we go back? Yes, without a doubt, and my now two teenagers can't wait.
We swam in the hot springs pool in june and enjoyed that lane lines had been set up for those who wished to lap swim. The changing rooms were excellent and the accommodations were luxurious and convenient. The gift store had everything we needed to swim and enjoy!
