Enjoyed our stay at this property while driving from Virginia to Massachusetts. Easy access to the highway. Very close to the casino and shuttle bus service was nice and convenient. Room was adequate and the bed was comfortable. The hotel bar and restaurant was very reasonably priced and staff was very friendly.

Best place in PA!!

I’ve been going there for the past 5 years and this place is the best ever. Great staff and manager. I’d recommend if you want to have a great weekend. The pool is always clean and food service is perfect

Stairs to get everywhere
Reviewed 1 week ago

This facility is not accessible (not ada compliant) if you have mobility issues stay away. I even emailed ahead of time an my question was glossed over. All ramps and roads have steep slope. When I asked how to reduce my aging parents steps I was to to DRIVE her to different entrances..FYI still had stairs.
Now my review outside of the stair issue.
We had a tower room. Room was dated and worn but overall clean. These rooms are above the lobby. Avoid 408 as we looked over the roof equipment and it was noisy. The adjoining door had no sound proofing and we heard our neighbors clearly. Entry door did not have a closer (fire issue?). We were on the second floor and I would have used the steps but they were dark and unsafe looking.
Weekday perks. Coffee in lobby and happy hour in bars. Free appetizers were room temperature not hot. Breakfast buffet is average for brand. Again not hot. Only extra is the made to order eggs. Not worth paying extra to me.
Indoor pool is dark and have to go down stairs to access, decent size. Fitness center is accessible through pool / hot tub area. Up an entire flight of steps. One restroom in entire area. Rusty and damp.
Outdoor pool is smaller. No restroom for pool. Trees around pool deck need to be cut back. A group of us played chase the sun one day. (We kept sliding our chairs over)
Restaurant...ok. It can only be accessed by stairs.
On Friday there were 3 separate bands/music offered. Night club, restaurants and bars on opposite side from front lobby. This is a partying hotel. If you want quite this is not the place to go on a weekend.
Free shuttle to Mohegan Sun was great. Our driver Tom was helpful and full of knowledge.
The street side is just a big paved area. The steam side is lush and tree covered. There is a bridge that looks to to to a trail but there was hazard tape up when I was there.

Holiday Getaway

The Staff was very accommodating but the Room size was small and the check in Staff, Shannon was not forth coming with information regarding the Resort. The Barbecue and the $1 Happy Hour was a hit!
Overall the stay was relaxing.
