I had stayed at the Woodlands 8/27 - 8/30/14. My main reason for staying there was to golf. They offer a golf inclusive plan that is really a good value and the course was beautiful. In addition, Mohegan Sun Casino and track were a mile down the road. The hotel provided a shuttle so I did not have to use... More

I have to start by saying that the staff at the Woodlands was one of the best I've ever encountered.

Wilkes Barre is not the nice Poconos getaway I was expecting, but it has its charms.... More

I bought a living Social Voucher for $137. This price included overnight stay, wine and a cheese platter, and hot breakfast. Upon arrival I was not sure, it looked a little cheesy, but I was pleasantly surprised, it really is a small woodland resort.
