NEVER STAY HERE! The manager of this hotel needs a serious customer service and hospitality lesson!! Read on... Room- The sheets/blankets looked unwashed and the blankets even had what looked like pubic hairs stuck between the fibers. The bathroom was despicable - mold EVERYWHERE even on the shower curtain. Food- The food was TERRIBLE!!! We had pizza for lunch and... More

I booked a few days at this place because when I was a kid I used to come every summer with my parents. Oh how times have changed...but in 30 years I don't think anything has been renovated at this place. We reserved a room with a living room and kitchen. The room was disgusting. It was dirty and there... More

I have been going to this resort for a few years and I have always slid on the pool deck as the tiles are from the 70s and not graded. It is like a skating rink! You take your life in your hands walking across it...believe me, you will see people slip sliding all over the place. Well it finally... More

I have no idea what the preceding reviews were talking about. The resort was not any thing they were talking about. My wife and I were spending a few days in the area and decided on the resort after viewing the buildings and meeting the manager Donna, we were set and wanted to stay. My wife and I are very...

Went to a winter weekend getaway at the Friar Tuck. This is an old rundown ski resort. The rooms are dingy, very basic (not even an iron) and far far away from the main lobby. Anytime I wanted to go to the bar, pool, lobby it was a hike. I started just wearing sneakers all the time because everything was... More

Spent a weekend there and saw none of the problems mentioned in other reviews. While some of the facilities are showing their age around the edges they were just fine. Most of all the staff was most cooperative!

Stayed with friends for a few nights. This place is dirty, empty, and potentially dangerous. The use of words "spa" and "resort" are a joke. The pool and jacuzzi have so much scum on the tile that you would think it is black tile (it isn't) - the shower water is so hot that it is dangerous. The steam room... More
