I almost canceled our vacation after reading the reviews posted here. We called the resort and they told us that they had some problems but were in the process of upgrading. We requested one of the newly refurbished rooms. We were pleasantly surprised! The unit itself was very nice. We had a loft with two twin beds, and the kids didn't mind going down two flights of stairs to use the bathroom!!
There were two bedrooms plus a sleeper sofa. The appliances were all fairly new and everything was clean and nice. The furniture was a little worn and the outside of the building had obviously not been upgraded yet. (peeling, old paint!) But, for the most part, we were very happy. All of the indoor pools were clean and well maintained. (and they did offer pool towels) They were very chemical-ish, but at least we knew they were safe from bacteria!
Everything was close by. The game room was huge and loud, but we enjoyed it. Lots of places to shop in the area and Bushkill Falls is just short drive. The only on-site dining we tried was the Jukebox Diner. It wasn't great.
All in all, we thought this was a very family friendly place to stay. Not fancy, but fun and clean! Just request a newly refurbished unit!
Don't miss the Pocono Snake and Animal Farm. Although it looks run down and a little scary....we loved it!! The animals were so people friendly....definitely pay the money for the monkey food and watch them try to get you to pick them to throw it to. They can catch it if you feed the monkeys and lemurs in the cages out side!
