Joyful Journey is one of my favorite getaway destinations. On the valley floor near the northern entrance to the San Luis Valley, it sits alone with an expansive, panoramic view that takes your breath away. They have multiple options for overnight stays which include traditional hotel rooms, yurts, RV hook-ups, Teepees, and camping. I have stayed in all of the...

Enjoyed a relaxing weekend doing hydrotherapy in the hot springs. Stayed in one of the yurts. Yurts are comfortable and quiet overall. Had a group of noisy campers who seemed to be unaware how their voices carried. Kitchenette that is available to campers and those staying in yurts, tee pees etc. were not modern or very clean. Had mouse droppings...

Thank you so much for spending your weekend with us and for taking the time to give us your feedback. This is our busiest time of year for camping and this sometimes leads to a little more revelry than usual. We are constantly striving for improvements in all areas of our facility and updating some things to be more "modern"...

I was disappointed at the level of cleanliness (or lack there of) in all aspects of the place. The bathrooms were dismal, the pools were poorly maintained and the camping spots were filled with broken glass and leftover trash from previous campers. The grounds certainly had a gorgeous view of the mountains and one of the yurts seemed to be...

Jennifer, thank you for expressing your concerns. Joyful Journey Hot Springs Spa is a family owned operation. The family has owned this complex since the 1980’s and continue to make improvements. Many important improvements, while costly, are not immediately apparent to our customers. The hotel and conference center is relatively new. The new yurt you mentioned was completed this year...

I stayed in a Yurt for 1 night. Accommodations were basic & simple. The hot pools and sauna were relaxing. The staff was friendly. The view of the plains and nearby mountains was great. Breakfast was mediocre.

I love this place. Great place to stay if you're visiting the Great Sand Dunes about 30 minutes away. This is rarely too crowded, the hot pools are amazing with different temperatures and the view from the pools is a valley rimmed with 14ers. The only reason I gave this 4 stars is that it's not fancy - it has...
