Alameda Hot Springs offers a vintage and relaxed experience at a 1930s spa motel in Hot Springs, Montana.
The motel offers a truly private experience, with all geothermal tubs being private and tranquil since they are all located within the suites. The suites themselves are spacious, with many offering kitchens and wide sofas to sit on.
You also won’t have to worry about breaking the budget, as rooms are more than affordable and comfortable. With warm temperatures and spacious suites, Alameda Hot Springs offers the perfect experience for travelers who want to relax in peace and solitude without breaking the bank.
Hot Springs Facilities
Alameda Hot Springs is a bit different from other hot springs in that you can’t just come in and take a dip in a public pool. You’ll have to reserve one of the rooms for an overnight stay if you wish to experience the geothermal pools here. The pools are also smaller and tub-sized rather than large ones you can swim around in.
However, this also allows for a more relaxed experience as you’ll truly get to focus on warming up in the springs, especially since all pools are private. It’s a truly quiet and personalized experience at this motel.
You can prepare a meal in the suite’s kitchen then take a dip in the tub right outside. For those who would still like to enjoy a full-sized pool, there are plenty of springs with public large pools nearby at affordable prices.
When it comes to what to bring, you’ll want to plan on bringing a bathing suit as the springs are not clothing optional. The facility also has a wonderful garden of green grass, apple, and plum trees that guests can enjoy, but we recommend still bringing your own food as the facility does not offer any full-sized meals.
Luckily with suites that have kitchens and a gas barbecue grill on-site, cooking is far from stressful here. Peak times are typically summer, so consider visiting in the spring or fall to avoid the crowds.
You can even visit in the winter if you’re willing to embrace the cold, and there’s skiing close by in Big Sky, Montana.
