AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Eclectic/Unusual): After skeet shooting and some golf, you play chess by the fireside here; sip your cocktail and I can easily imagine what the 1920s REALLY were like.
Situated on a private mountaintop, this regal, stone-faced resort stands like a fortress overlooking the beautiful surrounding acreage. The restored grand hotel features contemporary rooms. A cozy lobby fireplace beckons you to sit and relax while the splendid Library Lounge is just the place to play chess and sip your drink. On-site amenities include a fine dining restaurant that offers meal plans, a tavern that serves a la carte and an authentic 1930s ice cream soda shop for the kids. A giant blackboard lists the days activities, from skeet shooting to golf, all of which the concierge will happily book for guests. Close your eyes for a moment and the grandeur of the Gatsby era might seem regained, albeit high in the Poconos. This property is highly recommended for those who appreciate the sublimely vintage. Smoke free premises. 193 units. 1-4 stories, interior corridors.

Pros: The staff was very rude. When I arrive at the hotel, I feel good. So I said to the staff like "I even didn't know that there is a place like this in pocono?" Then the staff just said shortly "there is" feel really bad.
Cons: The toilet doesn't flush out so I have to call and ask to unclog a toilet.

Pros: The hotel was old but very charming. Definitely had a lot of character and the rooms were renovated enough that you didn't think it was run down. A little secluded so it was quiet and peaceful.
Cons: The Lakeview Restaurant could have improved its wait staff service. Was pretty slow when the restaurant wasn't full to capacity.

Historical hotel with charm and...
Pros: The property is beautiful and the history of the place is fun to see in the old photos that are everywhere. Our bed was very comfortable, the food was delicious, and service was excellent.
Cons: The shower didn't drain and the walls were thin. We could hear every word spoken by our neighbors and their kids, which made us feel that we had no privacy.

Pros:
Cons: The shuttle driver, he never left the driver seat didn't offer to help with my bags nor open any doors. Front desk clerk was not very pleasant, wouldn't let me take a luggage cart to my room for checkout. Said she would get the bellhop but after waiting 15 minutes made two trips down to my car with my things and still didn't show.
