I recently attended a business conference at the Mohegan Sun at Pocano Downs. I knew prior to going to the hotel that it had to be good as I have stayed and visited Mohegan Sun, CT many times as it is only 45 minutes from my home.
My expectations were met. The hotel is very nice. The rooms are almost identical to the CT Mohegan Sun. The rooms were new, spotless, and very comfortable. No Complaints.
While on my trip, my company ordered food for the duration of my trip, and as expected, the food was very good.
Even the casino area very much resembled the CT casino in many ways.
Here's where it differs. Mohegan Sun at Pocano Downs is about 1/4 of the size of Mohegan Sun CT.Not that it matters but it's kind of like if you have visited Ceasar's Palace in Las Vegas it sort of becomes a let down when you visit Ceasar's Atlantic City, which is very nice, but It's just not the same.
On a positive note, you can book this beautiful room for a fraction of the cost as Mohegan Sun CT. My room rate was $99.00. I even checked weekend rates and depending on when you book you can receive a rate of around $125.00 . That is a great deal, where in CT rooms start around $250.00 mid-week to $500-$700.00 for a weekend night.
It was a positive experience. You cannot go wrong with this hotel.
