Experience Ojo’s Earliest Days
Plunge into tradition with a stay in our 100-plus-year-old hotel and revel in the simplicity of Ojo past while enjoying the signature amenities for which Ojo is celebrated today.
Historic Hotel at Ojo Caliente
Travelers and seekers have long journeyed to our naturally hot, healing waters, and in the 1800s, Ojo Caliente became one of the nation’s first natural health resorts. Since then, several of our buildings have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Mission revival-style Historic Hotel, which dates back to 1917. For 100-plus years, Ojo Caliente guests bathed in the bathhouses rather than in their hotel rooms, and we’ve kept this tradition alive. Each room has an ensuite toilet and sink (no shower), one or two queen beds, and vintage furniture and decor. We’ve kept TVs out of the rooms to help keep your focus on rest and rejuvenation in the mineral springs and on the Hotel’s front porch, where you can enjoy the night sky from a rocking chair. Take advantage of complimentary locally-roasted coffee and teas each morning in our restaurant, which is just steps from your historic room. During your stay, keep your eyes peeled around the Hotel for a glimpse at relics and photographs from Ojo Caliente’s earliest days.
