Minerals Resort and Spa, Vernon, NJ

I stayed at Mineral Springs for a work trip during a torrential downpour (I'm talking road closures). There were roof leaks throughout the hotel, no doubt damage from hurricane Irene and the most recent torrential downpours. People were actively mopping up the water from the leaks and buckets were placed to collect the water.

It was a 2 day trip but due to the weather we did not partake in most of the amenities. However, due to our team building scavenger hunt, I did see many of the options: indoor and outdoor pool, spa, tennis courts, miniature golf, spin bikes, weight lifting, ping pong, sauna, gift shop and basketball courts.

I did not like the layout of this hotel. In order to get from the lobby to the hotel rooms, one needs to walk through the indoor pool area. Which means slip hazards for women wearing heels and frizzy hair. We found a shortcut to the business meeting area from the rooms, but we figured this out on our own, it was not mentioned.

The room was comfortable and clean, albeit dated. This hotel is not set up for business, no desk at all in the room. I made due using the small table by removing the coffee maker. However, we picked this resort to have a fun off-site meeting, not because of the meeting facilities.

All meals were provided by the hotel. We had one breakfast set up and dinner set up in Kites while eating breakfast and lunch on another day in the meeting room. My salmon at dinner was okay (marinated beets and chive risotto). Most people in my group had the filet mignon and seemed to enjoy it. One person had the scallops and mention they were good.

We spent some time at the bar, which was enjoyable and seemingly well stocked with what most people requested.

All in all, if given more time, I would go back to this resort for a personal visit.
