A few friends and I went for a massage, lunch, facial and a steam. We had been in the past and had a good experiences. This time, place was dirty and we were rushed through everything. The lunch was good, however they brought out the wrong entree for me and when I mentioned it to the server she was very...

This place is a dump. $105 for a massage and 15 minutes in the grotto.... The massage was given by an older women who couldn't rub tanning lotion on you let alone give a respectable massage. They kept me in a waiting room with a moldy fountain and stink bugs on the ceiling while waiting my turn for the Grotto....

We purchased a Groupon for a couples spa getaway package. I called in June to schedule, and couldn't get in initially until August. The spa then called me to say they had "an event" going on and needed to reschedule us. They couldn't fit us in again until OCTOBER. That irritated me quite a bit, but they did still honor...

I fully knew when staying at Marios for the first time that it was a dated facility and we went anyway for a one night spa get away. The reception area was cozy and decorated for Christmas already, we were shown to our room and yes it is very dated, however the linens were clean, bed comfy, TV worked...jacuzzi tub...

I've been here probably 5 times in the last 10 years, but will no longer be back. It has gone so far downhill. Pat the reservation lady is ridiculously rude. I have a feeling it will go out of business soon.

Stayed at Mario's overnight last weekend. The hotel and spa staff were very kind and accommodating; however all of their hospitality could not make up for the old and outdated rooms and spa area. My husband and I both had massages and left feeling as though the masseuse did not hear our requests and we left feeling more frustrated than...

I found Mario's to be very charming. Our room was clean and comfortable. We had a delicious dinner in The Cabin Restaurant. The massage I had was a treat and done very professionally. The front desk employees were super. That said, If you are looking for a ultra modern facility , Mario's is not for you. I liked that it...

This hotel is too expensive for what it is... It would really need renovation everywhere! There is no elevator, the whirlpool is rusty as well as the radiator, no coffee in the room nor fridge... The breakfast is super expensive (2 eggs, $6, 2 toasts, $3, 1 coffee (small) $3) so even if it is good, you would prefer going...
