I just stayed at the Temple Gardens Mineral Spa resort. I was there for work and didn't have an opportunity to make use of the spa, so I won't comment or rate the hotel on this. A few of my colleagues did try and enjoy it though, so it would probably be worth a try.
Now, about the things I can review, the hotel has 2 towers and you have to cross a street to get to the second tower (either on ground level or through a walkway on the 3rd floor, or an open walkway on the 4th, not open in the winter). I was in the second tower, 5th floor. The room was decent and was clean. Service was also good when I needed it. You also don't have to go outside if you wish to go to the casino which is nice.
There were a few things I didn't like about the room though. First, it's an in-window type HVAC system with no auto, so it's always on, blowing hot air when heat is on, and cold air when it's not. This makes the room very very dry and there was nothing I could do to get the humidity up at all. The fact that the bathroom fan was on all the time didn't help either.
Water temperature and pressure in the bathroom and shower were good, and the toiletries were pretty nice.
The television was an old tube TV, so no HD but there was a good selection of channels.
There weren't really enough outlets in the room, near the bed or the desk as all but one were taken up when I got in the room.
There was not nearly enough light in the room. It was always dark, and reading at night was a challenge. The light switch near the door turned on a small light near the door and nothing else. The lamps seemed to have the least wattage bulbs available.
The window coverings are blinds, not curtains so they let a fair amount of light in to the room during the day.
The wifi in my room was absolutely horrible (when I could connect) but on the second day I found the wired connection, and that was near the best hotel internet I've ever had. I wish they could improve the wifi, but at least wired is still available and very good.
The bed was comfortable, but I had trouble finding a pillow I liked. Flatter or down pillows would be nice.
Overall it's a decent hotel and probably the best in town. It was clean with hot water and good pressure and a comfortable bed so it has most points covered for a short stay. I was on a longer stay, so a few of the other things got annoying, but nothing terrible.
