How to Get There
I booked rooms 438-441 over this weekend for a family reunion. These are outdoor rooms. They were very clean. Some things here and there were missing, like towels in my room, phone disconnected in my parents' room, deck chairs missing. These were quickly addressed though. I was impressed by the response time (probably under 5 minutes). I loved that we had a shared deck where we hung out at night (not all outdoor rooms have them), and that we were around a 30 second walk to the entrance of the hotel. What puzzled and frustrated me was the lack of a directory in the room. It would've been helpful to know basic hotel information like check-in and check-out times, services available, amenities, nearby attractions and restaurants, etc. Most hotels and motels have them. I don't know why this doesn't.Mary and the young lady during the Friday afternoon shift answered all my questions with a pleasant and genuine attitude, and they were both excellent :) True, you can look these up on the internet, but the Wifi was spotty at best. Most of my family use T-Mobile which we found out doesn't have signal on the hotel premises (I finally got signal around 4 miles into town proper, down 209 S). Communicating with them was challenging due to this.
Housekeeping was excellent. Thank you for the great service. Shoutout to Charles!
My brothers and dad had an unsatisfactory experience at The Steakhouse for dinner Friday night. They said that the food took too long even if they were the only ones there, but the employees were excellent. The steaks came out well-done even if ordered medium, and they didn't bother to send them back because they felt it would take too long to return. We did enjoy the buffet breakfast on Sunday, which for $12 a person was a good deal. French toast and maple syrup, sausage patties, eggs, potatoes, fresh fruit, cereal were offered. Service was faster this time. Great job to Dominique and Jackie who handled the rush as best as they could. :)
The pools were fun! They were clean and not overly chlorinated. The indoor pool had a hot tub and the outdoor pool is gorgeous in the sunlight.
I also loved the game room which is like a blast from the past. There is a change machine that dispenses quarters, and a good assortment of arcade games like skee ball, PacMan, air hockey, a racing game, some shooting games, claw machines. There is even a table tennis and basketball hoop that doesnt require any money to play. There is a disclaimer that the hotel is not responsible for lost money - fair enough, so player beware, as we lost money on the claw machines.
One thing that I think could be improved is making a sidewalk leading to the hotel from the outdoor cabins. The road into and out the hotel is a narrow winding two-lane road (one in each direction). We were walking on that road into blind curves, with cars driving behind us.
In summary, hotel staff is excellent and we had a satisfactory experience.
Room was very comfortable. Awkward shower as the glass only blocked 1/2 of shower. Outside pool was so refreshing. Could have done without the fireworks at 11:30-12 midnight. Also, price online on Wednesday was $166, Thursday was $184. My husband called Thursday evening and they quoted $194 (I had not told him of online price yet) and booked it. When I checked again online on Friday it was $166 again. So frustrating.
My husband and I are looking for a new place to visit. We get away a lot and want to find something new. Pocono Palace is great, but want something different. I almost booked the king jacuzzi online, but wanted to know the difference between the two listed ($100 difference in the rooms) so I called. I was into that they were booked!!! Yet, I could've booked online??? Dont waste your money...may not have a room. Go to Pocono Palace...their website is honest!
For those reading and not wanting to get into depth: it's a great place, at a great location (seriously nothing this close to bushkill and that was great after hiking) with an excellent staff. If you are questioning it I'm pretty sure you're going to like it so long as you're not coming here hoping for some Vegas type extravaganza.
Now, for the more in depth...items. This place is the closest to the Overlook Hotel in The Shining I have ever seen in real life, it must be frightening at times for staff in the winter. It's alone on a hill, long halls that, when I was there, were empty. Speaking of empty I was here in June fully expecting a full house but other than a conference my family and I were mostly alone. Mostly empty parking lots and facilities and no one came to the pool until later...not a bad thing just a strange feeling especially at night. The bar was there but empty with no alcohol and as far as I could tell the steakhouse was just straight closed unless it was breakfast. If it wasn't for the friendly staff I'm not sure I'd have felt as comfortable as I was there with the emptyness. The halls were built like a maze, we had to take the elevator to the third floor from the front desk to walk down a hallway to take the elevator or stairs down to our room.
Ok so other than that:
The place looks great and spawls for acres. There is a fire pit, Cornhole boards, trampoline, kid pools etc that are great for families. There were no Cornhole bags or golf items but I'm betting we could have asked. The nightly lit fountain has a great porch with chairs, the pool and hot tub were open very late and the breakfast was great.
Though it was a bit eerie having the place to ourselves was great and very different from anywhere else. There is an indoor and outdoor pool to enjoy and the outdoor pool is huge with 7 foot depth and lounge chairs.
As for some bad reviews, no Bible but don't care about that. Some areas seem dated and some windows dirty (the place is huge I expect it). Some carpets we're dirty but again it's huge, I don't know I'm not trying to be nitpicky here.
Long story short if I come back here I won't look at any other hotels, I will be staying here.
Overall the room was good. I say good because it was very clean, new, updated, and comfortable. Good quality amenities: bathroom was new, fancy and pristine. The mattress was soft and very comfortable. There was a down comforter and pillows. Nice Samsung flatscreens with full channel selection. A keurig with 4 K-Kups. A mini fridge. We rented the “king jacuzzi suite”. The jacuzzi was nice, but very very snugly fit two people. And those two people have to be spouses, otherwise it’d be awkward. We’re medium sized. I’m 150 lbs and my boyfriend is about 230 lbs. Any bigger than us would be uncomfortable. We did not utilize the pool or restaurants. My only complaints are that we were charged 10$ that they don’t tell you about for using the K-Kups. I thought that was silly and something they should tell you about before hand. Also, it’s listed as a “suite” but has no microwave, or anything more than a mini fridge and a small keurig.
When initially choosing a place to stay, we chose between here and Eagle Village Resort (aka Tamiment Village). We chose Eagle Village in which we got an entire 3 BR 2 Bath Full kitchen cottage for much cheaper. We stayed here because we wanted to stay an extra night and couldn’t do so at Eagle Village. I’d choose Eagle Village if we stayed again due to the surplus of amenities, space, and nature atmosphere.
I do have to give a “shout out” to Tiffany, the front desk receptionist. She was amazing; an A+ staff member. She went the extra mile to help us get the room we wanted on short notice. She was awesome and made my rating a little better.
So like I said, overall it was “good”.
