“Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Everything was excellent. We had 48 golfers this year and everything was terrific. The food, lodging and golf was unbeatable for the price. We've been going there for 9 years in a row and have already booked our trip for next year

The attached photo of the bathroom floor of room 303 tells the story. Notice the dirt, chipped paint, and the atrocious workmanship of the tile job. The bathroom also featured mildew in the corner behind the bathroom door, wallpaper that was peeling at the seams, and a bathtub that took 30 minutes to empty after a shower. We had the unpleasant experience of standing in ankle deep water during a quick shower. The carpet in the room was extremely worn but did not look dirty.

The red carpet on the stairs at the main entrance was very faded and covered with leaves and other plant debris. It appeared to me that the area was not swept or vacuumed even once during our entire stay. Carpets in the hallways and meeting rooms on the lower level were covered with stains. The housekeeper arrived to clean our room at 3pm. I don't consider myself to be a neat freak, but with room rates exceeding $250 per night, management should be able to afford enough staff to keep the place cleaner and replace carpets when needed.

Our room had a small table that could be used as a desk. The room next door (304) was smaller and had no table, but cost the same amount. The WiFi worked well. It required no password and tested at 5-6Mbps.

Sound insulation is poor. We could easily hear people talking in the hallway. Loud, thumping music from wedding receptions can be heard in the rooms until 11pm.

Food at the $15 breakfast buffet was good, but the service was poor. Coffee refills were a problem. Since the buffet is self serve, they should just put out a big pot and let people serve themselves. It would be much easier than trying to find a waitress.

The setting and grounds are nice and green with attractive views, but many of the flower beds sorely need attention.

Dear Runtom: Thank you for your review. No facility will improve without getting all feedback; the good, the bad and the ugly. Someone once said, "a picture speaks a thousand words," and in this day and age, pictures are easier to take and all of us must be mindful of our P's and Q's and what "pictures we are creating" to be taken. I apologize for the picture we created for you to take. Sometimes the more historic portions of our rooms are less flattering. However, we are looking at these areas and addressing them as we can. I am sorry that you and your family had to have this experience. Please be assured that I have met with our Executive Housekeeper to make sure that we are keeping a more rigorous schedule regarding keeping traffic areas looking pristine and have met with our dining room staff to ensure we are providing the exceptional service intended. I will reach out to you personally. Thank you again.

The staff at the Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort was very professional and courteous. The Sycamore Lodge was a great place for my family to stay. We were able to be closed to everything the Inn has to offer and yet have a quiet place to visit with each other. The YMCA golf outing went without a hitch thanks to the staff at the Pro Shop.

I love places with history and character, the Shawnee in has both! I really enjoyed looking at all the pictures and imaging what a place it must have been in it's hayday of the fifties and sixties with all the celebrity visitors.

I love the Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort and want to return soon. The place seems to be about 100 years old with lots of scenic views and lovely grounds along the Delaware River. It has 27 holes of golf in addition to a par three course and a driving range and practice green. We stayed in the Inn and loved our room and all the historic photos hanging in the halls which helped to tell the story of the countless famous people staying and golfing at the resort over the years. There are condos and cottages to rent and an theater which I hope to visit someday. The Gem tavern is truly a "gem." I was only there for one night but next time I'll plan to stay longer. The staff gives guided tours of the grounds. You may canoe, golf, hike part of the Appalachian Trail, play tennis, bike or gather for songs and s'mores around the campfire in the evening. If you go in the winter, it's a short trip to Shawnee Ski Resort.

We went for a little rest and relaxation. As soon as my head hit the comfortable bed and pillows I went to sleep. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. There were many activities to do on site and nearby. This was a location I would definitely visit again.
