This is our second stay at Minerals Hotel. My husband and I enjoy taking a little getaway without the kids to reconnect. We enjoy the restaurant and enjoying cocktails at the bar. Our bartender Heidi was exceptional. So friendly and personable. Great conversation with her and great service! We hope to see her next year when we plan our trip! She made us feel at home☺️

Listen to the other reviews….stay elsewhere nearby or splurge for crystal springs. Minerals is a disgrace to the hotel/ resort industry. I could write 10 pages about what they put me through just trying to book an overnight stay with golf. BEWARE when booking tee times THEY CHARGE YOU MORE FOR A “STAY AND PLAY” package than if you just booked online. Customer service is awful. Give them your money at your own risk.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to write your review. As stated on our website all Golf & Stay packages must be booked through our reservations department via phone with a live agent vs online. The reason for this is because the golf courses must be selected at the time of booking and while you do receive discounted Tee times they all vary based on which course(s) you choose to play. We hope this helps and welcome you to give us a call so one of our reservation agents can assist you. Thank You.

TLDR: Minerals Hotel booked my room for the wrong night. They were unable to accommodate and sent me up the road to the Quality Inn, where I had to book and pay for the room myself. They comped one night on their property, told me I couldn’t use the facilities until noon on my check in day, couldn’t get into my room until 4 PM, and then proceeded to give me one of the worst rooms on the property. I originally booked during August 2020 when my friend’s wedding was to occur. The wedding was pushed back to 2021 and I was told my hotel accommodation had been moved. Since we were receiving the hotel block rate, I thought, I would extend my trip. I went into the system and changed my reservation to include Friday evening, August 27. The bride notified me she did not see my reservation for Friday evening. I called the hotel on August 24 and confirmed the reservation dates with them. They told me despite what I was seeing on my end, they did not have my reservation for Friday, but were able to quickly accommodate and I was back on track for the weekend. Friday evening, my husband and 5 year old head up. We check in and are told that our reservation is for Saturday and Sunday, not Friday and Saturday as we were previously told and they have no available hotel rooms for Friday evening. They tell me to call reservations as it is a separate department from check in and see what they can do. I called to review my booking. I am told when the supervisor returns from lunch, they will review the reservation phone call made to see who had made the error. An hour and a half later, I receive a call confirming THE HOTEL HAD MADE THE ERROR. While the hotel had made the error, they still had no rooms available for Friday evening. They offer to comp Sunday, or I can use a comp for a future visit. For Friday evening they tell me I can stay at the Quality Inn up the road for a discounted rate. I just had to call and make the reservation. I request the comp be used for Saturday because if they think I am ever coming back to one of their properties they are mistaken. They agree to let us use the comp for Saturday, but we would still need to pay for Friday and make our booking at the Quality Inn. There were some additional issues I had with the “resolution” of the situation. The pool opens at 10 so I asked if I could come in the morning and use the pool. I was refused and told I could come at noon. Also, I had to attend a wedding which started at 5PM and check in was not until 4PM. How was I supposed to get my family ready in that time? I was told I would be put on a priority list, but they could not guarantee my check in until 4PM. Saturday morning, we head back to Minerals. I checked to see if the room was ready. There was a room available and the clerk asked if there were any special circumstances regarding my room. I proceeded to tell her about what happened the night before. She said, “well they put you in a poopy room; probably one of the worst on the property. Let me see if I can change that”. Thankfully, the front desk clerk was able to move us out of a “poopy room” and give us a normal queen room. Review of the room: door did not lock, bedding was damp, bathroom was moldy, faucet was coming off the wall in the tub, bathroom sink was cracked, runner on our bed was melted, room window opened, but it was so low a child could easily fall out. Swimming area: light hanging above the hot tub that had fallen out of the broken tiles and was about to drop into the hot tub at any moment, possibly electrocuting people using the tub, broken tiles in pool, hot tub area, concrete in the pool is busted up. The food was very tasty, but food and drinks were way overpriced. Thank you, Minerals, for turning my dream trip into a horrific nightmare. You will never see a penny of mine again and I hope this review will warn others not to spend their money with you as well. You are a disgrace to the Hospitality industry and are just money hungry inconsiderate fools.

Thank you again for providing your feedback.

worst "resort" i have ever stayed in. a cross between orchard beach in the bronx and Jersey's Seaside Heights. Simply the lowest class of people I have ever encountered. Guests spitting in pools and floor. Babies urinating in unsupervised hot tubs. Guests swimming in street clothes. It gets no worse. all the clichés of new jersey are laid bare in this skunk of a hotel. of course no one was wearing masks or social distancing. Covid must thrive here.! This place is the zero for any sophisticated traveler or any one with class. beware!

Let me preface this by saying I have never left a bad review for ANY establishment online. Now, to review Mineral's Resort and Spa. If you read nothing else from my review, read this: DO NOT STAY HERE! My friends and our kids wanted to visit Rocking Horse Ranch. Unfortunately, they did not have any reservations available. We looked at the website for Mineral's Hotel and Spa and it looked like a great alternative. SO many activities listed for the children to enjoy! Especially outdoors! FALSE ADVERTISING. Outdoor movies! Nope, no outdoor movies nor were they substituted with indoor movies (even though there were no weather issues). Pony rides! Nope, no pony rides. When we called to inquire as to why there were no pony rides we were asked to leave our phone number and someone would get back to us. Guess what, no one got back to us. We drove to the other resort at Crystal Springs to see if our kids could participate in the pony rides there. Let me rephrase that.. pony RIDE. There was one sad looking pony walking the grass of the parking lot with a line of like 20 kids waiting.No thanks. The kids were anxiously waiting for the duck races at the main pool to start at three o' clock as per the PRINTED out activities schedule for the day. Nothing was getting set up. We asked the lifeguards and they didn't seem to know what we were talking about or just didn't care. We made multiple visits to the front desk asking when the activity would start. Finally after like the fourth time asking a woman showed up with four inflatable duck rafts for the kids. This was approximately 20 minutes after the event was supposed to begin. One of the "ducks" had a hole in it and just kept deflating. After ten minutes we were told it was over and one of our kids wasn't allowed a second turn. Why am I making a big deal about a race with inflatable ducks? It's because it was THE ONLY ACTIVITY FOR THE KIDS IN THE THREE DAYS WE WERE THERE. Oh wait, I am forgetting the other activity that was included... roasting marshmallows unattended by staff members at a gas fire pit. The marshmallows and sticks were available at the front desk. You were lucky if you found them by accident. And there were not enough for all of the kids. The second night we returned being it was sadly the best activity this "resort" had to offer. A staff member showed up this time! But, it was tell to tell us not to be there because skunks frequent the area.This is all a joke, right? So really, the only main attraction was the indoor and outdoor pool. No slides, no diving boards. The cliff jump at the outdoor pool was great but that got old after one day being the only highlight. The pool was overrun by locals who have daily or seasonal memberships to use the pool. This information was given to us by the staff when we seemed puzzled as to the high security involved in getting complimentary pool towels to use. It was difficult to find chairs even. My one daughter got harrased by two boys while swimming.The dad of one of the boys "works here". The last day of our trip the main pool was closed because " there weren't enough lifeguards". So everyone was crammed into the small pool together.This ONE activity there was, was quite flawed. Oh! But there is more! This hotel is run down.It is outdated and worn.The carpeting in the common areas and our rooms were filthy. My bedsheets were stained. Housekeeping did not speak English to communicate with.The public bathrooms were beyond unhygienic.The wi-fi did not work.Our shower made the noise of a puppy being slaughtered when you turned the faucet on.No luggage service. There are bees everywhere. My friend got stung when we arrived in the parking lot (that should have been a sign!!!). There are three options for food. All of which are not good. Very low quality and not low priced.Fitness areas look like what I'm guessing prison fitness areas resemble.There is no security to speak of. My friend asked for a key to our other friends room because she got locked out. They didn't even ask her name or to show ID. We literally could have just asked for anyone's room key and would have received it. Scary! Why am I going on and on and sounding like a giant complainer? Are you ready for what these two nights cost? My room was $1400 for two nights. That was for the room rate and taxes. $1400. My room was the basic room without a balcony. My room didn't even include the next upgrade of a mini fridge.This "resort" stay wasn't even close to being worth HALF this cost.While checking out we wanted to voice our experience here. The manager did not seem very sympathetic.After speaking to his superior we were offered a $100 credit towards our bill. $1300 now for this experience. Not acceptable. I wanted to have a safe and entertaining short getaway for my kids and our friends.I was willing to pay $1400 for an experience that matched that. Mineral's Hotel and Spa was a major letdown. Good thing we loved the company we traveled with! Adding that they are listed here as taking COVID-19 precautions. Totally incorrect as well. I am a cancer patient who has been undergoing chemotherapy for over a year now. My immune system is not good and I did not feel safe here.
