Thank you again for helping us Tara with all of our crazy anniversary ideas and always making our stay so special. Until next year! Brian and Tiffanie Christine

I personally love the Shawnee Inn! If you aren't a "boujie" person, and you like a little rustic charm, you will love the Shawnee Inn too! I have stayed here about 5 times and I have never experienced a dirty room like the images shown. I always have nice rooms! I'll admit, the room price is high for the small room that you get,though. And the walls are definitely thin, but again.. this place is from the early 1900's! It didn't bother me much. I mean.. it's a hotel in the poconos... What do you really expect? I LOVE the scenery outside.. the porch, and the brewery on the property! Give this place a little more credit, negative Nancy's!

This is hotel is one of my happy places in Pennsylvania. The location is great, just by the Delaware river. The view is gorgeous!!!! I always come here during sky season. The hotel is only a few minutes away from the Shawnee mountain ski which makes it very convenient! I love their fire pits during the night and their brewery! I was there just this past Thanksgiving weekend. Very glad to see the bathrooms are being remodeled and the rooms are looking even more beautiful! I can't wait to go back again!

We purchased a two day golf trip with friends. First problem when we called for reservations was we had to upgrade and pay extra. So we said ok. Had t move our tee time back 1/2 hour due to road construction delay, so far so good. Played 18 holes with friends, course is ok except doing renovations on blue 7 & 8. Got back and place was crowded with an event, no big deal. Checked in, had to do one upgrade so ok, we'll pay the extra for a river view. Friends got suite without upgrade. As we were checking in the one girl at the counter kept giving our girl instructions and stopping our check in. Got to our room OMG what a joke. Very tiny room with view over parking lot and you could see the river. TV was like 15 years old, picture had black square around the edges. No coffee maker but all the stuff to make coffee. Had some sort of cable sticking out of the wall not sure what that was, ice machine out of order on 3rd floor. Bathroom toilet was so close to tub you could barely sit on it. Shower curtain rod was all rusted. And this was an upgrade? Friends suite was much larger and nicer but didn't need upgrade. This place reminded me of the movie the Shining. Heard quite a few people say this place was terrible. It rained the next morning so we didn't get to play our second round. Will NEVER stay there again. This place is pretty outside but that's it.

Couples getaway last week at Shawnee Inn was so memorable. The Inn itself is a joy to explore. The management offers morning hikes, golf cart tours and a historic guided tour of the hotel. After a day of exploring and hiking the nearby parks, sitting on the porch in a rocker facing the mighty Delaware was a pleasant conclusion to the day. The Dinners in the a River Room were made special by the attentive wait staff. The trout was recommended and was a hit, fresh, and served with perfectly prepared mashed potatoes. The pace of the evening dinner was welcomed. The Gem and Keystone has a casual menu. Great choice, bartender makes a good Moscow Mule. We have dined there before, both outside and on the first two levels. This time we were seated on the third level.loved looking at the photos around the room. The room was second floor, back and gave us a view of a garden of Hostas, the largest we have ever seen. Beautiful when the sun was setting. Room was clean and had all we needed. The location of Shawnee Inn is central to many hiking trails. We discovered Tumbling Waters trail at the Environmental Center. challenging on the return side for us seniors but so worth two hours. Haley and all the front end staff are very accommodating and helpful. They enjoy working there.

This resort is trying to use it's successful past to draw in customers. However, there is a big difference between "historic" and "old, worn and dingy". Covering issues with a coat of paint, is not renovating. It is important to start with the positives because there were a few. I cannot say enough about how friendly and helpful the staff was at this resort. From the restaurants, to the front desk, the staff was very friendly and overly accommodating. This was refreshing during this time of staff shortages nationwide. We ate in the River Room for dinner and breakfast. The food at dinner was very good and moderately priced. The food at breakfast was nothing more than we would get for free at a Hampton Inn, with the exception of the omelet station. However, the price was ridiculous for what they dubbed as a "breakfast buffet". $18 a person for breakfast is way too much. First impressions are vital for many things. However, for hotels and resorts, I think first impressions are everything. If we hadn't already paid for our accomodations, I would have turned right around before we even stepped foot inside the front doors. The minute I started up the front steps, I was regretting our decision to spend our anniversary here. There was a glass bowel that was being used for an ashtray at the bottom of the steps. The outdoor carpet that was on the steps was very dirty. If you aren't going to clean/vacuum it, then remove it. Upon entering the lobby, you could tell the hotel was old, but there were some quite charming historic items throughout, as well as historic photographs throughout the building. Unfortunately, there was a layer of dust on everything. In addition, the yellow chairs in the lobby were dirty and stained. They offered to put our bags behind the front desk while we golfed. As I handed my bags to the girl, I noticed how dirty the carpet was behind the counter. It looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in months. On our way to our room, the carpeting in the hallways was faded and dirty. It was very old. In the guest room however, the flooring had been replaced with laminate wood flooring. The guest room was clean, for the most part, with the exception of the bathroom. I will get to that next. As others have noted, the room was small, but I didn't find that to be bothersome. In the guest room, there was a window air conditioner, apparently because the HVAC did not work in the room. The bedding and furniture were clean, but the furniture was worn. Outside the bathroom, there were drop ceiling tiles. These tiles were stained from apparent multiple leaks, but instead of replacing them, they painted over the stains. The leaks must have been continual, because the metal rails were also rusty. This was about a 3' by 4' area. would have cost maybe $25 to replace the whole section. Why they didn't just do that is beyond me. The bathroom was less than desirable. It was tiny! When you sit on the toilet, your leg actually sits on the edge of the bathtub. Under the sink, there were pieces of cardboard or lauan that were haphazardly screwed onto the wall. Behind these pieces, I assume, is plumbing. The hairdryer was missing, but there was a wall attachment for it. The stopper for the sink was missing, but somehow the sink was still clogged and wouldn't drain. The wall above the shower had mold and mildew all around it. Other than that, the bathroom was clean. Throughout the evening and into the night, we were able to hear EVERYTHING that was said by the people in the rooms on either side of us. They weren't loud, the walls were just that permeable. The golf course was o.k. Other courses in the area are nicer, but this was nice as a change of scenery. The cart paths were virtually non-existent, but where they did have them, the pavement was crumbled and bumpy. It was smoother to ride on the grass. They have plenty of staff on hand to guide you and the Halfway house in the middle of the course is a nice place to rest and refresh. We really enjoyed our time there. Great staff here also. Overall, this resort needs A LOT of TLC. I feel like it would benefit them to keep the restaurants and golf course open for revenue, but spend time without guests to update and refresh the hotel. I have stayed in many "historic" hotels and all others have updated carpeting and furniture at the very least. If you are expecting charm and history, be prepared for old and dingy instead.

I just returned from a 6-day stay at this golf resort. The Inn was built like a fortress a hundred years ago, but don't let that scare you. The beds were fantastic. The housekeeping was 5 stars, and the attitude of the staff was " How can we help?" Granted the bathrooms are smaller than typical ( The place was built in 1915) but Full sized tub and shower with plenty of hot water and the finest soap bars I have ever used. Dining was excellent with fresh salad ingredients from the on-site garden. I highly recommend the macadamia-encrusted salmon. The steak (Day three) was excellent and I am a bit of a snob when it comes to the meat. Golf was fantastic, with the only complaint ( I am being very picky here) is the rough was a bit on the long side. The View from almost every point of the resort is a Postcard picture. One of the staff, Midge shared the history of the property with me and I feel this place is a bit of a national treasure. Evenings offered a campfire with complimentary "Smores" riverside. You could see deer, foxes and eagles from this location I highly recommend a visit to this resort.

This was a last minute get-a-way for two of us and we had a great time as our goal was to enjoy the outdoors. The Inn is a large, classic north east architecture building with a grand porch and simple landscaping. The room we had was a river view on the 2nd floor and it needed a refresh especially the bathroom. The room was comfortable enough for us as the main goal was to do many activities, but if you wanted to lounge in the room it was just basic and maybe not where you want to be all afternoon. The price is a little high, but having almost all the activities included makes it a good value, and a lot of fun. All the staff and guides were friendly. The food is above average and there is always evening music. We feel this Inn has great potential if they give the rooms a refresh, keep the grounds tidy and things organized (like make The 28th hole more accommodating for Inn guests) . It seems they focus more on the golf and wedding events than on the Inn itself.

This is a factual report...We spent a 2 day golf special. Stayed overnight with 2 days of golf. The impression was that at one time this was the place to stay. Well that was about 75 years ago, not now. The rooms are small, and OLD. Now we have traveled all over Europe and are used to small rooms, but this room was OLD. we were traveling with friends so they had a similar experience. The bathroom was smaller that a walk in closet. the toilet paper holder was hanging off the wall. I am going to guess that a patron used it to grab onto to get up. the bathroom sink backed up when someone flushed or ran water. The water was brown....Disgusting......There were plenty of outlets in the room so no need to look for a outlet. they also had a power strip. Next to the bed. The mattress was comfortable and clean. Our friends hair dryer caught fire yes Fire....When they tried to use the phone in the room it did not work. it was not connected. They used there cell phone to call down to the front desk. Dinner.....they ran out of food....took over 2 1/2 hours to get the main meal.....The help were great I cannot say enough about them..Our friend every time she would order, the waitress would come back and say they ran out...The gave her a free meal. The PA Board of Health and the Fire Marshal's office's should investigate this place...It is a accident waiting to happen. The Golf Course is fantastic and there maintenance is good.

Response from Rob Howell, General Manager at The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort
Responded Aug. 30, 2022
Thank you Jim W. for relaying your experience. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your trip to our resort. This property was built in 1911 out of 12-inch thick steel reinforced concrete walls. We are privileged and challenged by its history. There is no excuse for the toilet paper holder to be off the wall and a non-working phone. That is a major oversite by myself. I am sorry that was not caught and rectified. We are working on our dining service and food inventory. I am so sorry you had to be part of our shortcomings. We are fortunate to have a committed, friendly staff and a well, maintained and manicured golf course. We are working as we can to make our bathrooms, bedroom areas, and public areas better. Thank you for taking the time to give us your factual report.
