Blackstone Hotsprings (Truth or Consequences) - Hot Springs in New Mexico


Blackstone Hotsprings is one of the most sophisticated inns in Truth or Consequences.

Each of the bathrooms, as well as the guest rooms, had a different flair.

Historic indoor baths

In 2005, the current owner purchased and greatly renovated the property of a motel that started the business in the 1930s.

Exterior 01

They have twelve guest rooms; each of them is themed for a TV show or character.

Motel 01

Out of them, nine have in-room baths.

Entrance 02

Walk-ins are welcome.

Courtyard 01

Going through the beautiful courtyard, I entered the office.


If you like to soak in the hottest water, I recommend the Historic Baths.

The Historic Bath1

The Historic Baths were originally built in the 1930s.

The Historic Bath2

During renovation, they found evidence of 10 baths in the original bathhouse.

Two of them were preserved and used for walk-ins.

The Historic Bath2

Opening the yellow valve, 112 degrees F water is provided to the two-people sized tub.

Four outdoor pools

Out of four private luxury baths, one is an indoor bath, and three are an outdoor bath.

The rate is $25.00 to $30.00 per 50-minute (as of this writing).

The Wet Room1

The Wet Room is the only one indoor bath.

The Wet Room2

The enchantment of this bathroom is the geothermal steam room.

You cannot easily find a natural sauna at Truth or Consequences.

The Wet Room3

The other three outdoor baths are located backward of the parking lot.

Private Pools 01

The Red Bath and the Yellow Bath are for four occupants, and the Turquoise Bath is for eight occupants.

Backyard 01

Surrounded by walls, they lack a sense of openness, but are privacy-conscious.

The color of the door tells the name of the bath, the Red Bath.

The Red Bath1

The tub was vacant when I entered the space.

I opened the valve by myself.

The Red Bath2

In a few short minutes, the tub became full, due to the rich water input.

This is the best part of free-flowing water.

Blackstone Hotsprings’ baths take different twists, on the back of affluent springs water.
