I know it is shitty and the spa and resort thing is utter bullshit, but how bad is it really??? Anyone ever stay here?

Why Is This?

In all fairness, the only reason you go to Desert Hot Springs is if you want to do what it's famous for - soak in the hot springs. You park yourself at one of the NICE spas in town (we stayed at the Bella Monte once and it was terrific). You soak, get a massage, do yoga, soak some more, it's fabulous. The town itself is very ghetto, and there's nothing to do there. This is not party central.

We passed Sanctuary Spa a couple of times and from the outside it looked like an abandoned amusement park bobsled ride - snow theme and all. My advice is to avoid it like the plague.

Ooops too late, I just want somewhere to crash and take a shower anyway, I'm not trying to do anything else, and 100 a night is the cheapest I can find so I'll drive an extra 30 mins each night for that.
