We took one look around and knew that we were not going to even stay there overnight, never mind for a week. It was disgusting! The closer we looked, the more we found............... If you are thinking of visiting the area, go to the Quality Inn near the entance to 87. We found it on what would have been a... More

The inn looks old, it feels old. People there are really cool, and willing to make you feel good , but we are talking about the hotel. The flys are driving me crazy, in the dinner room, pool area, every where. The inside pool has so mush clorine that after 5 minutes in the pool I can't keep my eyes... More

Bergs43 correctly describe this place as the Twilight Zone. That's exactly what my partner and I thought about this place as soon as we set our foot on the building, I think back in 2003-4. Initially we were HORRIFIED with old run down buildings, hallways, rooms, and everything else about this place. The buildings were so big and spacious, and... More

The pictures look great but too bad they have been taken years ago when they actually maintained the place. Booked a time share unit and we were asked at check in to come back a different week because they had a large group come in and would not allow use of the pool or spa. Room was clean but in... More

I woke up the first morning with an upper respiratory infection. Probably from Dust Mites or Bed Bugs! The walls were dirty, the couch was probably infested with bugs because I itched every time I sat on it. The room smelled like a 20 year old dirty ash tray. It was distgusting. In the restaurant, there were bugs flying around... More

This has possibly been the worst place to stay ever. My husband and I were very excited to book this place as our honeymoon. We did so due to the spa and other resort amenities. To start off with, 3 days before we left we were informed by the resort that the Pools and Restaurant would be closed Thurs-Sun due... More

I have been going up to the Catskills since I was a kid, always staying at Glen Brook Farm, which is great. My uncle always went to the Friar Tuck and my dad alwasy took us there for lobster dinner. Needless to say, this was many years ago, and the place has changed for the worse. The rooms weren't too... More

I stayed on Memorial weekend. Had 2 rooms adjoining. Rooms were very rundown. Appeared clean but I kept itching and didn't get into the bed. Had to sleep on top of the coverlet. Pool area seemed ok but on the 2nd day I saw 2 cockroaches in that area that were dead but didn't get swept up for the duration... More

My husband's family booked a Memorial Day Weekend here. After reading the reviews I was horrified and tempted to refuse to go. I was very anxious because we have a one year old and I didn't want her to be hanging out at a dump. I am glad we went. I had no expectations after reading the terribly negative reviews.... More

I felt compelled to give this review as I have read a few reviews rhat describe much of the unique charm of the Friar Tuck but then slant it all in a negative way. The Friar Tuck is a vintage Catskill resort with more space than it needs but lots of charm. The smells, the shadows,the decor and ambiance all... More
