Out of a variety of spa facilities in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, Fire Water Lodge is only the place that does not accept walk-ins.
As it is named, the hotel provides one of the hottest water in the city.
Private outdoor and indoor baths
I haven't been to Fire Water Lodge, although T or C is one of my best spa towns.
This was because they did not accept walk-ins and basically required over two nights stays for the weekend.
I finally made the reservation for checking-in on Sunday and checking-out on Monday, going to work in the early morning.
The check-in is available between 2 PM and 5 PM.
Only I had to do was find the guest room that I made the reservation, and pulled the room key at the entrance.
There are 7 guest rooms in addition to 3 cottages with private outdoor pools.
6 rooms have private indoor tubs and only a room has an outdoor tub.
There are other an outdoor bath and an indoor bath on a first-come-first-served basis.
I did not like the outdoor bath due to the dull Jacuzzi tub.
However I was impressed at the strong water pressure from the faucet.
The private indoor bath is located in one corner of the building.
At the end of a primary-colored hallway reminiscent of the nearby Pelican Spa, there was it.

A hot spring cure is to stay at a hot spring inn at least for a week and to have disease treatment through the soak. For the purpose, different from hotels for holidaymaking or recovery from exhaustion, such inn should be cheaper and with the most basic amenity. The hot spring inn in the United States was full of primary colors.
Not many people seemed to use the indoor bath, probably because all the guest rooms had own tubs.
The indoor bath looks old-fashioned that recalls old days in the 1950s.
The mineral water is 109 degrees F at the water outlet.
The good thing is the rich water input compared to other spa facilities nearby.
It can be said as injected.
Probably due to the close location to the source of the springs, I could enjoy the hot water before getting cool.
There is a shared kitchen.
The hotel does not have a restaurant, but provides enough equipment for self-catering.
I chose a suite room for staying named Eucalyptus Room.
It has a dining room with a refrigerator, microwave, and kitchenette, and a bedroom.
Inside the room, only the shower is for bathing.
They serve comfortable bathrobes.
The private outdoor bath is in the patio behind the dining room.
I really impressed by the richly decorated tub.
The patio is surrounded with bamboo blinds and does not have outlook.
The tub is as small as that for two people, but exudes presence like an artifact.
Under the darkening sky, I was in meditation in the free-flowing water.
Indian Springs and La Paloma have been my favorite places at T or C, but Fire Water's hot water and the beautiful tubs were second to none.

I love Indian Hot Springs Bath House the best among all spa facilities in Truth or Consequences. It has only two indoor private pools. The primitive and rustic atmosphere made me feel spiritual affluence.
