We stayed here last weekend for Oktoberfest at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. We got an excellent rate on a King Suite with our AAA card. For what we paid and what was included in our stay, you really can’t beat it.
Hotel was very nice and our room was spacious, quiet and clean. We loved the living room area with couch, dining table, refrigerator, microwave and flat-screen TV. The tube TV in the bedroom had a blacked-out screen and we actually forgot to call about this because we weren’t in the room very much.
The best thing about this hotel was the free 24-hour shuttle to Mohegan Sun on Fridays and Saturdays. Parking at Mohegan is a nightmare, so that was a wonderful bonus and the shuttle drivers were extremely friendly and accommodating.
The price of the hotel also includes a breakfast buffet which had the usual breakfast fare of cereal, juice, yogurt, pastries, eggs, sausage and potatoes. The food was good and we liked that they served breakfast until 10:30 so we could sleep in a bit.
As far as the negatives, they were minor. One thing I cannot understand is that they charged me extra for having 2 people in the room. When I booked it online at AAA, I put down 1 person, not really thinking it mattered that I would be with my boyfriend. When we checked in, I was told that it was an extra five dollars and change for an additional person. I thought this was quite odd since most rooms and rates are based on double occupancy. It was only five dollars but it still seemed strange to us. My boyfriend also noticed that the couches in the lobby had rips in them, which I guess didn’t bother me as much. With the low rate, breakfast and free shuttle, I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially if you are planning to spend some time at Mohegan Sun.
