“Okay”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2011

First time stay at Shawnee on the River - Village I. Upon arrival in room, which was very nice, sheets and comforter in one bedroom were stained - large stain on both. Housekeeping called and took half an hour to change sheets and comforter. Looked like sheets were not changed from previous renters.

No dishwashing liquid or kitchen tiems in kitchen. Called front desk and asked for supplies - housekeeping had left so had to drive to the front desk to pick up so customer service was not that great - they did not offer to bring items to room.

Room is nice and relaxing has a wood burning fireplace but no wood in to be found. No one advised upon check in about how to get wood.

Near ski facility - skiing is good for beginners not challenging for experienced skier.

Arrcade charges for everything and fee for billiard room - everything costs.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2010

Stayed in river Village 1 in Unit R2, I found the Unit to be dated and in need of serious updating, Carpets were stained and Couch cushions had broken seams, shower stalls way too small and towel racks on the floor instead attached to the wall as they should be.I also had the problem of Stink bugs (Asian Beetles) throughout the unit, I don't mean one or two, I found many, throughout the Unit, some in the bathroom, on the stairway, in the Living room and the Main bedroom upstairs. I felt like this was a fleabag motel not the Wyndham that I have become accustomed to. Thankfully my concerns were answered and I was given a better Unit in the Ridge Top section of Shawnee, which was what I expected, but this was on the 3rd day of my stay and half a week lost.

Unit was updated, CLEAN, plenty of room. Nice wood stove. Great view w/ lots of windows. Lot of stairs! Great parking. Friendly, quick check-in. Great maintenance guy.(small roof leak-no big deal). Comfortable beds, couch. CLEAN. Small TV, w/ VCR/DVD. Pay-per-internet, but cheap. Laundry is next to the parking, but clean. Would have been a perfect time except for the rain! Walking distance to nearby resturant/bar.

We stayed 3 nights at Shawnee Village in one of their new units. We had 270, a two bedroom with full kitchen, fireplace. Unit had washer / dryer which is so good when traveling with a toddler. The recreation area is a little far, you have to drive to it but onece there you do have an indoor pool, arcarde, free movie rental, tv room and gym.
Outlet mall is about a 15 minute drive.

We stayed at Shawnee River Village 1 from Dec 27, 2008 through Jan 2, 2009. The villas are showing there age, but with young children this can be an asset. You don't mind if they jump on the furniture or track mud inside. The units are better for 4 because the sleeper couches aren't much to sleep on especially for adults. The rec ctr has a beautiful pool. Zero entry for tots or handicapped is a big plus. The locker rooms need better attention. The fitness center, make that room, should be enlarged. Some free weights jammed into a corner with treadmills, elliptical and bicycles inches apart. The center has plenty of room and this was planned poorly. The Poconos in the winter is for the ski/snowboard set. Not much to do if you're not a skier. I do not recommend staying a full week. Long weekend is suffice. Wyndham has just taken over management of the property. It will be interesting to see the improvements over time. I hope they tear down and rebuild and not build new on some beautiful landscape.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2006

We have a last minute getaway to do some early snowboarding. The resort is very quiet in early December. The Shawnee Mountain just open this weekend and it was great. Only two trail are open for opening day but they did a great job. The Fairfield Shawnee itself is very clean and quiet. Commen areas are well maintain and the view from River Village units are georgous. It is closest to the Shawnee Inn by the Delaware River with a golf course and mountain/river view.
We have a two bedroom unit which is on a smaller scale than the two bedroom Ridgetop unit I have stayed in. The kitchen and dining area is clean and updated. Two part section porch, one screen in with roof and one not. The living area has old fashion fire place and three sided sitting area. Both TV is small in the unit. The bedrooms are on upper level with one queen and two queens rooms. Bathrooms are small but efficient, not fancy. The unit is definitely older but well equiped.

  • Liked — Location
  • Disliked — Indoor pool is too cold
  • Tips/Secrets — Try to check-in early on slow season, they will say yes if the unit is ready
