“Very nice get-away”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

My wife and I just experienced our first stay at the Shawnee Inn. It was a very pleasant three days. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. Tara, the Guest Service Manager, went above and beyond what is normal to make our stay memorable. There were numerous activities (free) that we took advantage off, but we also enjoyed just relaxing on the beautiful veranda watching the river roll by.
We will diffidently be returning, probably with a Road Scholar organized trip.
P.S. This place is a golfer's dream.

Room Tip: Take advantage of the free hike to the Delaware Water Gap overlook.

Dear Jeffery R: Thank you for all your comments, but especially the "this place is a golfer's dream." The island layout of this course is really so unique and the history is amazing. Thank you for noticing. I will pass along your nice comments about Tara. She is terrific and a great asset to our resort. We really concentrate on offering activities that allow our guests to enjoy the beauty of our area and the great outdoors. We hope to see you here again soon.

Our time was short, but that didn't stop us from seeing that this was a very well run hotel in an incredible location. Exploring the grounds, sitting on the porch and possibly taking in a round of golf would make any stay worth while!

LukeJ: Thank you for writing about your brief Shawnee experience. We hope you will return when you can stay longer. Our location is very special, as well as our staff. It is a beautiful place to take a walk, sit by the river and contemplate, or simply spin around and around on our expansive front lawn until you fall down. Oh yes, and the golf is excellent too. Hope to see you soon.

The room was clean and comfortable, although the bathrooms are extremely small. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Great golf! this is an old Inn in the Poconos. Although dated, it is very charming and a great family destination.

Room Tip: If possible, get a corner room.

Dear GregS: Thank you for relaying your Shawnee experience. In 1911 they did not believe in huge bathrooms like the ones constructed today. We are trying to maintain the integrity of the history of the building. The bathrooms are one of the areas that definitely have our attention and we are working on manageable solutions. We prefer historic to old and are trying to do what we can so that our guests do not have to be inconvenienced by the age of the property.
This is a great family destination. Thank you for saying so, We really encourage families to recreate together with the activities we have planned and the programs we offer. Visit again. If you love great golf play our Championship course at Shawnee and we have another course, Great Bear Golf Club which is a Nicklaus design.

We have a great time over Memorial Day weekend. This is our second visit to the hotel. The area is very beautiful and service is great. The bed is very comfortable. The room need a few touch up but it was still great.

Room Tip: We have the room by the lobby. I prefer the rooms on the third floor facing the river.

My Husband were looking for a getaway for our 5th Anniversary in the Poconos and found the Shawnee Inn - and I'm so glad we did! It's beautiful...a view of the river and a well-kept historic hotel, restaurant, spa, etc.

About 4 hours into our stay, we had a "freak" accident and our car caught fire in the parking lot! Without too much detail, it was a total loss and we were dealing with insurance and trying to find a way home to our kids the next day (Memorial Day weekend). There was a huge eyesore in their parking lot, for sure.

The entire staff from the concierge to the Owner were SO gracious to us and helped us however they could. Took care of the tow call, took us to get a rental car in town and made us feel less nervous and upset about what had happened.

We will certainly be going back - with kids, maybe?! There were other fun activities to do like s'more making and hayrides but we ran out of time. The spa and restaurant were fabulous, though!

Upon staying in May we enjoyed the comfort and spacious Cedar cottage that fit our six family members. It was very clean even with a real fire place in it! The climate control worked exceptionally well (especially since it was a muggy night after a rain storm). All the staff members that we came in touch with were extremely polite, like the concierge and front desk. The perk of being attached from the beautiful in is the quiet coziness that the cottage offered ! It was literally like having a home on the Delaware that you could see from every window. We are glad we stayed at such a magnificent upscale resort! Not to mention the beautiful golf greens which we did not use, but it was pleasant to see the beautiful landscape upon walking the grounds !

Dear Arron R - Thank you for relaying your Shawnee Experience. The Cedar Cottage is the perfect place for a family of small group to stay and enjoy some time together. The room configuration and gathering space make it a perfect place to share conversations, games or just relax reading a book. I will pass along your kind words about the staff. It is our goal to offer exceptional service to each and every guest at every opportunity. We hope you will return sometime soon.

This place is getting so bad, it is literally falling apart so management can save a few pennies I guess. They also seemed to save a few pennies on the insulation in the wall, because there is none! I could hear the people talking right through the wall, if that was not bad enough, when they fell asleep I could hear them snoring like they were right next to me. If you are not going to do a place right, just shut the place down already! Never coming back...

Dear M K - I have looked at your pictures, shared them with our staff and have addressed those concerns that can be corrected immediately. I can only speak for management, but our intention is not to save pennies and deliver a sub quality product. We are fortunate to work in a historic resort and we must be more diligent, flexible and creative. I apologize for the condition of the areas that were unacceptable. Thank you for helping us be better. As a historic resort on the banks of the Delaware River with beautiful views, an all natural spa, great golf, many outdoor activities, dining options, our own craft brewery and a staff that there only wish is to deliver exceptional service, it is our sincere hope that guests find some of the value in staying here rests in the entire Shawnee experience. We will work on it. I promise. I will reach out to you with a private message in hopes that you will change your mind.
