What to expect~
Depending on when you go, expect a crowd on the weekends. Families and other will frequent this place on the weekends. To avoid crowds try going in the afternoon/night or week day. Bundling options were available for a very reasonable price, so expect to look into those to get the best bang for your buck. If you do the mud bath, be prepared for your skin to be dry after, bring moisturizer.
Go early in the morning, night, or week day. Bundle the services to include a mud bath and massage, it is totally worth the upgrade and gives you the whole spa experience.

My Personal Thoughts~
I really liked the variety that Indian Hot Springs had to offer, and at extremely affordable prices. I soaked and did a mud bath for like $40. This was very much a family place though, so I highly recommend going during off hours to get the most relaxing experience. The geothermal caves are a unique offer as well, however I did not try it during my visit but plan to return.
