My husband purchased a package deal through Living Social. Although the actual package expired, I was able to use the amount he paid toward a massage. The front lobby of the salon was clean, spotless in fact, but needs redecorated. The black, grey, and white sponge painted walls with marble fixtures reminds me of the 80's...it's clean, but dated.

Clean. Yes, it was quite clean. The room was very spacious but the decor is old - mauve colors - velvet - no flat screen TV. They could do so much with a creative interior designer. The shower was gigantic and I loved it. There was a spa tub that I didn't use, but the shower was over the spa... More

The good/ ok- I have been here on 3 occasions for a 1/2 day spa treat. I have never stayed or visited the hotel. I have used to sauna - very nice. The grotto - I love this room! Sunken whirlpool with stone on 3 walls and 2 waterfalls. In this room there is also a very nice fireplace and... More

It is not the first time that my wife and I went to this spa. When we were at the Mario's about 5 years ago it felt like a treat; now, this place looks like an outdated old hotel: the thick layer of dust, cracked walls, dirty common areas, no bottled water, and bad smell all over the place.

Came to Aurora for a funeral. Stayed at Mario's for 2 nights. I will start with the good points of the hotel: the location was great for me with ample free parking. The bed was very comfortable with plenty of blankets and pillows. I was able to get a good night's sleep. Now for the bad: I called to make... More

Great customer service, wonderful atmosphere, terrific food . . . what's not to like? Enjoyed a massage, a facial, a hair treatment and all were professionally done. The room was huge with a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. The staff at the restaurant did an excellent job with service. The patio and fountain are beautiful. The bar is fully stocked.... More

I can't believe all the bad reviews...this place is incredible!!! The massage was out of this world (and I've had my share of massages but this was one of the BEST) and the hydrating/exfoliating facial was also very relaxing and I felt that my skin felt and looked amazing afterward, as well. There was also a champagne lunch and the... More

This is a hidden gem, with great staff, pleasant rooms at a fair price. The quality of the bed was excellent and the food was very good. We did not use the SPA which is attached. It is worth staying if you are in the area.

A few friends and I visited recently for lunch and spa appointments and had the worst customer service I have ever experienced. I couldn't believe how terrible this place was, especially for the price. First let me start by saying we were the ONLY table there during lunchtime. Lunch was disappointing — did not receive what we ordered (sweet potato fries)... More

I have entertained my clients at Mario's for over 13 years. 99% loved staying there, I guess you cannot please everyone but of the majority they all asked to be booked at this hotel each and every year. The only person who had a complaint with me regarding the stay was that the hotel room was not bright enough for... More
