I had to buy Lysol and cleaning fluid to take away musty smell in the room. I saw a black bear roaming in the field next to the parking lot on the B/C side and when I told the desk attendant about it he blew me off. Cell phone reception even with wifi is the worst! They need major upgrades!!

"Way too outdated, disgusting mildew odor"
So we spent a few nights here and I was skeptical about staying at a cheaper hotel, but the online pictures were very nice , looks can be quite deceiving the nicest part was the lobby and certainly didn't go with how the rest of the place looked after check in. The rooms are very old and outdated. The hairdryer didn't work, half the bulbs from the lamps in the room were blown out, burn holes in blankets, strong musty smell ,definitely not enough towels. I had to track down someone for towels and you would have thought I wanted her to give me a limb, after ten minutes trying to get her to understand that there were five of us and two bath towels, one hand towel and one washcloth wouldn't be enough she finally gave me a few more after complaining. The pool looks so pretty on the online photos but when you see it in person, it's dark and dingy and if you look up at the glass ceiling it's all black because it's so dirty, so the skylight offers no light. When walking the hallways, there are always dirty towels and sheets laying on the floor. Breakfast cost 50.00 for three kids, husband and I and it was gross and the wait staff were strange. Had a scone floor room and no elevator was quite a struggle with all our luggage. The nicest part about the hotel was the friendly staff at the counter. I wasnt expecting the Ritz Carlton when I stayed here, but i did expect it to be clean and comfortable. Definitely won't go back, finally got the musty smell out of my belongings

"Avoid this place"
This place was a real dump. Aside from the lobby, nothing on this property has been updated for thirty years. The carpets were stained, the furniture was falling apart, and the hallways and rooms smelled. I came here with low expectations, and this place failed to meet those expectations. This chain is owned by Wyndham Hotel Group, and I am surprised that they would allow a place like this to carry their brand name. I would avoid this place if at all possible.

"looks nicer than it really is"
Hotel looked nicer in the pictures. Its was kinda run down and the hallway smelled like smoke a lot and we had a non smoking room. We asked ahead of time if they had room service and they told us yes as they have a restaurant. I called and ordered the food but they didn't bring it to my room. Instead, they called the room and told me it was ready for me to pick up. That is NOT room service. I called and went to the front desk on my second night and asked for extra towels and was told someone would bring them to my room which of course they never did. I probably won't stay there again.

"What do you want me to do about it Mam?"
"Shocked"/ "Pathetic" would be the words to describe management at this hotel! A soccer team was staying at the hotel & they were out of control. Screaming, running down halls, kicking soccer ball into door, banging on doors. Enough I went to leave my room & 5 kids almost ran me down. They ran right past the front desk - I pointed at them & said there is a problem. Told the manager on duty what they had been doing, but we were right down the hall from the front desk so sure he witnessed what was going on before my complaint. Here is the response I got with a smile mind you - "What do you want me to do about it mam?" WHAT??? Wrong answer. So I proceed to tell him start calling rooms get a hold of the parents. He says there not in their rooms there all out back having a party. Well then go out and tell them I said. Again smiling he says- I don't know what you want me to do? Ahhhhhhhh! I am a paying guest as well and I need to sleep tonight. Unbelievable! I still shake my head thinking about it! As far as room itself -the good: it was clean, spacious, had micro & fridge. The bad: the beds were not very comfortable, hotel was older/dated. We visit the poconos area every year - unfortunately I went the cheaper route this time picking this hotel - that won't happen again! Il pay more for better service next time!

"Get out of the city"
As I New Yorker, I have been visiting the Poconos area with my wife and kids for over 7 years already and I have to say that this last visit was one of the best if not the best of all times. The area is great, well located, accessible and still close to forest amenities to feel that you are not in the city. We rusted marshmallows in the back of the hotel at night and we even had a BBQ in the area designated. We did have a great time, we are planning going back again.

Place is a dump. Feet stuck to the carpet as I was walking in. I don't think it rates as even a 1 star. It's 70s decor is working on 45 years of patina.

"Ok for the price."
I've stayed here a couple of times, due to convenient location and reasonable price. This facility is ok as long as expectations are not too high. The rooms and hallway are relatively clean, but have musky oder, which is most likely due to the old carpeting. I accidentally spilled water in the room. When I used the room's white towel to soak up the water, the towel became brown. I will bring slippers on my next visit because I don't want to be barefoot on the rug. The bed was comfortable and linen pretty clean. The best feature of the hotel is the large indoor heated pool, however it is reserved in the afternoon for a swimming class.

"one and a half thumbs up!"
Check in was rather rushed, the girl did not seem to be bothered when we asked questions about the area. She kind of just brushed us off. She did not even smile. The other desk employees the following days were not like her at all. She was the exception it appears. The room was comfortable, although the heat really kicked butt... over hot (had to adjust the temp before going to sleep in order to not be overheated). Serengeti restaurant had an awesome breakfast BUT the hotel did NOT offer any breakfast whatsoever and the hotel coffee tasted like it had been brewed last week. The area itself was jammed packed with stuff to do, pottery studio, house of candles, outlet shopping. Despite our desire to refrain from 'chain restaurants', we wound up at Red Robin since our experience with area restaurants was less than satisfactory with the exception of Serengeti (at the hotel) and a small place down 611 called 'Dale's'. I would probably stay here again in the event decided to return to the area.

"Great Stay!"
I had a great experience at this hotel. My family and I decided to go skiing and snow tubing nearby at camelback mountain. We reserved 3 rooms at this Howard johnson which was like 5 mins away from the slopes. The staff was excellent, the pool was nice and warm, the bar was convenient and the breakfast was excellent all inside the hotel. There was no need to leave the hotel which made it feel like a resort. I highly reccomend this hotel! I will definitely be staying at this hotel in he future and will be recommending this hotel to my family n friends!

"Great Getaway"
Despite the bad reviews on this hotel I still took my chances and booked. Went snow tubing for my son's bday at camelback which was a five min drive. I was nervous when we walked in then immediately I smelled freshness in the air. Every review complained about the smell of smoke but not in our case. The staff were friendly, the hallway's and rooms were fresh and clean. Pool was clean and the kids had a ball. My only complaint is the restaurant service was really slow due to only having one waiter but they were really nice just overwhelmed. The kids were getting restless and by the time we received our food we had to ask for to go containers. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

"Ok for one night"
Ok for a one night stay if you don't plan on spending much time there. However, if you get snowed in like I did, you may be disappointed. The tv was 20 years old and everyone looked like an orange blur on it. There was no plug to hook in the dvd player I brought and no way to change the settings. Rooms were ok, they were clean except for the pretzel under the chair someone missed. There were children running up and down the hall screaming at midnight. Hotel staff was ok, restaraunt staff was great. Overall it was ok.

This is an older hotel with no recent updates. The rooms, while clean, are dated. The carpeting is a number of years old and the bathroom light was hanging down on one end. The tub had a permanent greying to the bottom that no amount of cleaning would get out. The chair in the room as soiled along with the ottoman. I give this hotel a 3 only because of the price and the friendliness of the staff.

"Nice big pool, heated. Game room. Good location"
Stayed one night and it was perfectly fine. Hotel could use some upgrading but the room was clean and comfortable, did not smell as some previous reviewers mentioned. Hallway did a little but not the room. Room is equipped with a mini fridge and microwave. Hotel pool is bigger and warmer than most I have been to. Location is right off of I-80 and there are 2 shopping centers across the street with several restaurant choices. We stayed the night before we went to Camelback. It is probably a 15 min drive or less so pretty convenient. Don't know if I would stay a whole week here but for one or two nights it is fine.
