The hotel is dated . The room that stayed in was was near the bar and you could hear everything. They need better coverings for the windows because you can see shadows walking passed which was creepy . The restaurant was good . Dinner was great . Breakfast was good . It was a buffet which was simple and a... More

Really nice ppl, but room was disgusting. Overpriced. Massage good and mineral bath not too bad. They were packed and we had to get a smoking room. There wasn't even a phone in the room. I don't think they've updated anything since 1972. Box tv, lumpy mattress, banged up furniture. Dining hall had ancient decor. Bar was tiny and outdated... More

four of us went for the night to enjoy the mineral baths, massage, dry sauna and dinner. We had wonderful time, if you are looking for a 5 star spa, then this is not the place for you. We found their packages to be very reasonable and the restaurant was incredible! I highly recommend the cowboy cut ribeye. It's a... More

This Saturday we made reservations at the restaurant for Valentines Day, it was my first time there. The music was a nice touch and we really enjoyed it. The restaurant was really dated and I usually don't mind, but the carpet was filthy. We sat at the bar waiting for our table. There was not a bartender, so we never... More

It's a little old, a little musty, but this place has charm that would keep me coming back for more. I loved the mineral bath and the pool was nice and warm. Room was dated but fine. Restaurant was decorated very lovely for fall and I was wishing I could come back in December and see the hotel and town... More

I just wanted to say this was my 1st visit and already booked another stay, you must have a mineral bath, very relaxing, best choice I have made. In the Boiler Room , you must Have the prime rib, this is the best by far and I have traveled to different states, and none of them hold a candle to... More

I bought a package for my daughters birthday. The therapist we booked weeks in advance left an hour before the massage, they were out of the champagne that went with the package and they did not seem too concerned with customer service.

This is to Mary and her awesome associates. My husband and I stayed at The Original Springs Hotel in August 2014. No complaints, if you need a good breakfast to start, they Boiler Room has it, if you need a good dinner after a long day on the shooting range or just hanging around Oakaville, they always have a nice...

The Original Springs Mineral Spa and Hotel in Ocawville, Illinois is a bit of a hidden gem. We scoured the internet to find a natural mineral water springs somewhere within the State of Illinois for a bone-soaking excursion. There appears to be only two: this one in Ocawville, and one called Dixon Springs. Dixon was a little too primitive for... More

This was the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. I bought a "package" that included restaurant credits, drink and appetizer credits and spa credits. I was unable to use the restaurant credits because the food was so bad. The first day there after check in we decided to have lunch at the restaurant and I ordered a cod sandwich. When... More
