“Awesome Experience”
Reviewed 6 December 2012

My husband and I had a beautiful time at
Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort. We are planning to go back very soon. Everything from the view from our room to the room we was staying in it was just wonderful. We had a nice relax time that we been wanted to have.

Thank you for writing about your experience. We look forward to you returning to the Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort for further relaxation. The Veranda is a perfect spot to read a book and watch the river flow by.

I'm giving the Shawnee 4 stars, not because it's perfect (there are shabby areas of carpet, some walls and woodwork need painting, the hot tub needs attention, stuff like that) but because our overall experience during our two-night stay was more than satisfactory and worthy of note, First, we got a great rate through SniqueAway. The buildings are beautiful, the grounds peaceful, the view of the river soothing, the history of the place a revelation. We arrived the Sunday of hurricane Sandy to an almost empty hotel, had a great lunch at the tavern near the grounds entrance (really good beer, too, made onsite) were greeted by a most-gracious desk staff, and had a gorgeous room. When the storm hit on Monday, we were on the wrap around porch in rockers, wrapped in rain gear, sipping Grand Marnier, and watching the rain sheet across the river. Went for a swim (wait until you see the pool! It's huge--10 ft. deep and indoors!) and before you know it.....power failures. Most notably in the elevator. The staff was so solicitous; the manager rode up with us, offered us a 1st floor room, and when we declined, provided flashlights and said to call the desk if we needed an escort down the stairs. We planned to eat in the hotel restaurant, but then the lights blew for good during cocktails in the bar. Everyone was calm, knew just what to do, professional. In short order, someone from the kitchen apologetically offered guests a sandwich/salad meal (actually quite good) , which arrived with linens, silverware, the good glasses and a courteous waiter. We ate in the bar, other guests ate around the lobby fireplace.No need to apologize for that in my opinion. We had a lovely, if dark evening, and were actually sad to leave on Tuesday morning. Nice place, really nice folks.

Thank you for your kind words. Our resort is over 100 years old and is in need of constant attention. We are proud of that history and we appreciate that you noticed our emphasis on this. Sandy was (and still is) a difficult time for many and we were very fortunate. Your patience and the patience of other guests is greatly appreciated and went along way to make for a smooth experience. The safety and comfort of our guest is our priority and we hope you will return in the future to experience some more Shawnee hospitality.

We booked a two night stay through Snique Away in a standard king room. While checking in we asked if they could upgrade us to a River View as the parking lot was almost empty. While they did do this, they neglected to tell us they were putting us into the smallest room I have every had in any hotel anywhere, with a queen bed. I would have preferred a larger king room without a view. They were unable to change the room a little later and we were stuck for two nights, very very uncomfortable. The bed almost touched the walls on all sides and there was no addition seating. The bath room was also small and cramped.

Thank you for writing about your experience. Due to the historic nature of the resort, our rooms vary in size. We have made every attempt to make the guest rooms comfortable with well appointed bed linen, unique amenites (pillow menu, sleep menu, pet plant, etc...), and all natural bathroom products. We put an emphasis on the outdoors and relaxing public spaces for the guests to enjoy. I apologize for your experience and hope that you will give us another chance.

My husband and I were so glad to find this gem. We were on a trip to celebrate our anniversary and found this through hotwire. It was an amazing place for an amazing price. The history of the hotel, the friendliness of the staff, the setting all were perfect for our Autumn Trip. Lots to do in the area and alot of nice little restaurants close by. Highly recommend

Was here for one night this past weekend for my cousin's wedding. The resort had only gotten power back from the storm at 10pm the night before, but everything seemed up and running properly to me. We were even given a better price than I found online because they had a "Hurricane Package" that included the room and breakfast the next day. Details: Room - King bed room, a bit small, but it's an older hotel, so I wouldn't expect much bigger. The bed was comfortable. The details are older (window panes, light switches, bathroom fixtures) but I found it kind of charming. Could use an update, but was comfortable and adequate. The free breakfast was very good- had an omlette made to order and the rest was buffet, but was fine. I really liked the old feel to the hotel, and actually wish we had more time to explore.

Even Hurricane Sandy, no power and no phones, trees and power lines down everywhere, but Mark, Jordan, and Brett (I'm sure there were many others we didn't see...in the dark), were all smiles and checked us right in...no charge for the night. Bob, the manager greeted us in the dining room (he'd found a D-D and brought in coffee!) in what looked like a freshly pressed business suit! The kitchen had set up a breakfast buffet with home made granola -- that alone was worth going down for -- juices. Just nothing cooked...obviously. OK, they had to close, since no one knew for sure when power would be back on, but these guys made the whole experience memorable. Imagine what they'd be like with lights on!

Room Tip: Get a river view!

My wife passed away 3 weeks ago and I needed a place to unwind from all the details involved with her death before I got burned out. As a golfer, thought the resort would be a great place to go and it turned out to be an excellent retreat. Played all 3 nine hole courses over two days and they were in great condition and the pro shop staff was very helpful. Enjoyed the food in the River Room and had excellent service. Used the hot tub to soak my body and had a great massage from Patricia. My room had a nice non river view, Got a great rate by staying Sunday through Wed. morning and even sat in on a concert on Tuesday evening next to a blazing fire. in the lounge fireplace. Everything was more than satisfactory and I met and talked with the General Manager who has won awards in 2010 and 2011 for his expertise in resort management.He is very responsive to your suggestions. It was a great choice and I could not have been more satisfied. Try it-you will like it! Dick Atherley, Willow Valley Retirement Communities, Willow St., Pa.
