Hot Springs is a census-designated place (CDP) in Bath County, Virginia, United States. The population as of the 2010 Census was 738. It is located about 5 miles (8 km) southwest of Warm Springs on U.S. Route 220. Hot Springs is the site of a number of resorts that make use of the springs.

The area is historically important to the development of Bath County. As early as the mid 18th century, travelers came to use the springs. The first inn to accommodate them was built in 1766 by Thomas Bullitt. The most prominent modern resort, The Homestead, traces its origin to this inn.

The Homestead, Mustoe House, and The Yard are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
