Thermopolis hotels give you a place to rest after a busy day discovering the city's treasures. Along with the world's largest mineral hot springs, Thermopolis is home to a place where you can dig for dinosaurs and Wind River Canyon, one of the best places around for white-water rafting. The southernmost point of the Big Horn Basin is a fascinating place to explore, 130 miles west of Casper and 215 miles to the east of Jackson Hole. Once you arrive, you'll find a host of hotels ready to welcome you and direct you right to the hot springs and other fun.
If you're looking for Thermopolis hotels close to the city's things to do, the Days Inn Thermopolis will certainly fit the bill. Located at 115 Park Street, this hotel is within the bounds of Hot Springs State Park. The park's mineral-rich waters provide relaxation in the indoor spa and the outdoor pool. The Days Inn also has typical fresh-water pool to enjoy in the summertime. If soaking in the mineral waters isn't enough, you could book a massage or spend some time in the tanning bed. You'll also find a two-floor fitness center, where you can get in a good workout. The guestrooms at this Thermopolis Wyoming lodging provider also provide a comfortable place to relax, complete with TVs and movie channels. A complimentary continental breakfast is served in the morning, and the onsite restaurant opens for lunch, dinner, and cocktails.
The Best Western Plus Plaza Hotel is another one of the Thermopolis hotels located within the bounds of Hot Springs State Park. This property, found at 116 Park Street, traces its history to 1918, when the hotel first welcomed guests who traveled from all around to soak in the springs. Today, the hotel continues to provide Thermopolis Wyoming lodging after an extensive renovation. The property includes 18 guestrooms and 18 suites, some with wood-burning fireplaces. When the weather is room, you'll have the chance to go for a dip in the outdoor freshwater pool-and two water parks are within walking distance for even more fun. Year-round, warm mineral water is piped into an outdoor spa. In the lobby, the handcrafted lodge furniture provides another place to relax when you're not in the pool or hanging out in the room. After a long day of mineral springs and digging for dinosaurs, it's nice to have a place to return that's primed for relaxation.
The Thermopolis Wyoming lodging scene also includes independent properties. The Paintbrush Inn (pictured), at 602 South Sixth Street, welcomes out-of-towners with warm Western hospitality and a comfortable place to stay. All of the guestrooms are located on the first floor, so there's no stairs to climb. Most of the rooms feature two queen-sized beds, and three of them have been specially designed for handicapped accessibility. You'll also find large HDTVs with games as well as DVD players and Internet access with each room. Other perks include coffeemakers and individual climate controls in each room. Don't be surprised if you see a deer walk by, as a large herd of mule deer lives near the Paintbrush Inn, proving the uniqueness of Thermopolis hotels.
