The new rooms far exceed any expectations we may have had...

We have been coming to Blackstone for a few years. Every time there are upgrades and changes that improve the experience - however - the new rooms far exceed any expectations we may have had.

All of the details, down to the switches for the lights and fans, are excellent!

A great place to relax, renew and rejuvenate.

Our first visit, celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary! This place is wonderful, very relaxing.  We will be back again, maybe next year on our anniversary. Great place to rejuvenate your soul.

It was our first time staying in Truth or Consequences and the Blackstone was a great introduction! The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would like to especially thank Robin for her kind and welcoming demeanor. We will definitely be coming back!

Kudos to the staff, management and owners. You can tell when people take pride in their work. It shows in the details like the cleanliness, efficiency, and making guests feel comfortable and relaxed. We will continue to visit your wonderful property whenever we are in town.

Blackstone never fails to meet its goal of ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation for its customers. We tried the Wet Room for the first time and now say it is a must for every visit. Thank you Blackstone!

I spent 2 hours in the Yellow pool. The space was really nice with chairs and a bench to sit on. I liked the multiple levels of benches in the pool. The water temp was perfect. They even offered to refill it to warm it up if I needed midway through my soak. I look forward to my next visit!


My husband and I had another excellent stay - this was our third time experiencing the bliss that is Blackstone, and it just gets better every year. We stayed in the Superman suite, and while it was the priciest room we've tried thus far, it was worth every penny.


We stayed in The Jetsons room. Very fun! Very retro, but updated where it needs to be. HUGE soaking tub. It was our 40th wedding anniversary, and they gifted us an hour in one of the outdoor soaking tub enclosures - wonderful! Loved the private enclosed back patio of our room.

Just left and wish we could have stayed another night or three. It was so much more, so much better than we imagined. We stayed in the Adventures of Superman suite: two rooms, nicely furnished, great bed...and FABULOUS spa tub.

We love coming to T or C and enjoying as many soaks as we can at Blackstone Hotsprings! We are so grateful to the owners and staff for all they do that makes this place so inviting, peaceful, nourishing, and luxurious!

A hidden Gem in New Mexico! Very friendly staff and beautiful private mineral pools with a hotel with its own touch of themes and originality. Such a treat to spend a day her. I would totally return and recommend this place.

My new happy place! I loved the hot spring soak and enjoyed the tour of the themed rooms available for overnight stays.

What a wonderful experience. From entering the beautiful, flowered courtyard, to meeting with the great and friendly staff to entering the charming room with a hot mineral spring shower. The Twilight Zone is a great place to stay.

The spring fed tub in our room (Golden Girls) was amazing, the bed was extremely confortable, the wet room was simply magical, and we cannot wait to come back!

The New York Times published a feature in the Sunday Travel Section (10/5/2008) in a column called "Surfacing." They graciously describe Blackstone Hotsprings as "a 1930s motor court that has been transformed into an unlikely retreat of luxurious kitsch. The airy rooms - each with its own hot-springs tub - feature king-size beds, flat-screen TVs and tongue-in-cheek themes like 'The Jetsons.'"

On Tuesday September 23, 2008, Beauty's Spot published an exceptionally complete and complimentary review of Blackstone Hotsprings, and she also wrote a nice piece about her experience in Truth or Consequences.
