Pine would be a horrible choice.  As a woodworker I find pine to be terrible for any outdoor project. The only way to even get it close in durability to cedar is heavy and continuous chemical treatment.   Any lack of maintenance can result in twisting, grain rise as well as any number of rot, mold and mildew problems.  Then add the harsh environment of a hot tub and it's a recipe for problems.  Can it be done? Yes. Will it last any reasonable time? No.

No experience with spruce.
