“Shawnee River Village II”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

I have stayed there twice before so I new what it was! By reading the reviews thought maybe it went down. But our 2 bedroom 2 full bath unit with fireplace was very clean and had everything you could want. Very spacious, full kitchen big living room with flat screen, 2nd bedroom was big but master only had a full bed, should be at least a queen. Lots of steps to parking lot, think my son counted 75 so after skiing you get a good burn. But we loved it had lot's of fun and would do it again, I own week 52 in Florida and get a free week every leap year and used it for this trip. After staying in a small hotel last year the kids loved having there own bedroom and to be able to lounge around in the living room. They and us loved the heated pool and hot tub after a long day skiing!

After reading some of the negative reviews on TripAdvisor, I did not have high expectations but we had no problems at all (only two minor issues) with our stay. We are a family of 5 so the two bedroom villa was perfect. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were quiet. The two minor issues involved a shower that I think housekeeping forgot to clean and a dishwasher that seemed to run all the time. We had difficulty finding the reception building to check in (the GPS led us to a spot in the woods) and it was dark when we arrived so we couldn't see the signs. After getting our key it was still difficult to see the signs to our villa so lighting would be helpful. The villas are also a short ride to the ski resort and I think there may be a shuttle but we weren't told about that so I am not sure. Overall, it was a good stay and we would stay there again.

I stayed in a unit in the Depuy are of Shawnee Village, I've been coming up here since I was a kid and nothing has changed, that isnt a good thing. The furniture is out dated and worn. The maintenance done on the unit is half-[--]. I would recommend these units to groups of young people who are looking to ski/snowboard and party for the week. Couples and families should look elsewhere.

Beware!! We ask for a two bedroom villa and they made a reservation of two villas , so they debit us the price of two villas..I send two email and they never answered!

Fortunaley the people at the reception desk was very gentle and tried to helped us but the comunication with the people of the Windham desk was impossible... the tried to help us because the phone in our villa never works.

We were hestitant to book here due to some negative reviews but at our recent stay in Skyline Tower we were advised renovations were underway, as this is a property Wyndham purchased not too long ago. We were pleasantly surprised in our newly renovated 1 bedroom suite that was very spacious with a nice wrap around porch. We took a walk around the Village and witnessed that restorations are absolutely underway. Can't wait to see what the 2 bedroom we booked for next month looks like.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room F21.

We decided to take a drive north to see the fall foliage. Our first stop was a one day stay at the SHAWNEE VILLAGE Resort. We stayed in the Wyndham Crestview section located in the Poconos in Pennsylvania. The Crestview is one of the new sections. The unit was well equipped with everything you would need. If you like quiet place to visit this is the place. You are surrounded by trees. This is my second trip to this resort. We had no complaints

Room Tip: stay in the new Crestview units

I cannot even begin to tell you how horrible this "resort" is. First of all, it was sold to us as a Wyndham resort..but when we complained they said "oh, Wyndham isn't part of Shawnee, we just inherited these awful units ten years ago and havent had a chance to fix them up yet." First of all, they smell.. not just like mold or stale air, but like dirt. Filth. The floors were so dirty that if you walked from the bathroom to the kitchen your socks would turn black. The beds were not changed with clean sheets. The ceiling fixtures were covered in grease and filth, I will post photos. The tub and showers were moldy as were the ceilings in the bathrooms. The appliances didnt work well and someone put a bunch of wire and garbage in the washing machine so when you did laundry it all got ruined. When I went to the front desk I was furious. This was supposed to be a mini vacation for our family of five, and we were so miserable we cut our stay short and went home. We couldnt even bear to be in the place, it was so gross. I will write to Wyndham, but I doubt they care. The front desk staff said they weren't surprised..the manager wouldnt even come out of his office. Please do yourself a favor, do not spend a dime at this place. You are healthier and better off at a camp site if you're looking for a bargain. They also tried to sell us a timeshare and when they showed us crestview, it was a much nicer place but still not worth being in the same area as the shawnee resorts. If you look at the bedbug photos and the other reviews you really can say you know what you're getting into~!

Room Tip: do not stay at Shawnee under any circumstances. You may want to try crestview, but they are all poor...
