We spend 5 days at the hotel. We booked a very nice room (2 bedroom loft room) which was very spacious and comfortable. Probably because of COVID things were very confusing at the hotel. We bought a package including ski and snow tube but it was a nightmare to find out where and when to retrieve our tickets and where to buy additional tickets for the following days. We were told to call a number and the person who talked to us was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Then we decided to explore other means to get our tickets when we met a very friendly young lady who helped us out. Other than customer service, the hotel is clean and very convenient located.

I had booked a stay on January 19th for 1 night, January 22-23. On January 21st at around 8:40am I had to cancel my reservation. I was told there wouldn’t be any penalty because I cancelled within the 24hr period. The person on the phone gave me a cancellation number before we ended the phone call. On January 21st (the same day I made my cancellation) I received a text message at 10:07am saying “welcome to camelback resort! Let your adventures begin.” I thought maybe there was a mistake and I tending to a family matter so I wasn’t able to look into it further. At 8:01pm the same day, I got another text message asking me to rate how my stay was going so far on a scale of 1-5. I decided to check my bank account this morning (January 22nd) and saw that they had went ahead and charged my card on January 21st. Even though I had cancelled it....without me ever stepping foot onto their property or showing any staff at the front desk my credentials. So I called camelback and was on hold for quite some time. Someone named Adele (Adelle?) answered I explained to them what was going on and she was going to try to forward me to the front desk. I haven’t gotten to speak with anyone at the front desk as of yet due to “high call volumes” I was then told that the charge would most likely go back into my account in 7-10 business days. I NEVER CHECKED IN. So now I’m awaiting a call to make sure they didn’t somehow mistakenly check someone else in under my name. All I can say is, if you want to stay here make sure you don’t need to cancel a reservation because the customer service is absolutely unacceptable. Stay away, book elsewhere!!!! I will NEVER stay at camelback resort!!

Overall, this was a very nice and clean resort and my kids loved it. Our room was nice and staff was friendly. Here were my issues that led me to write this review. Check-in time is at 4. I arrived at 3:40 and was told that I would get a text message with my room number once it was ready. I was told at the check in desk that she couldn't tell me if my room would be ready at 4 bc she didn't know how housekeeping was doing. My room wasn't ready until 5pm. What was frustrating was that no one would answer the front desk for 40min while I was trying to call and see how much longer it would be. I did try going in to inquire and was moved to a line with a dozen other people who were all complaining about the same thing. Thankfully, I received my text while waiting. I was also told prior to my check in that I could check in my bags if the room wasn't ready, but got there and was told they couldn't bc they didn't have space. My biggest issue out of all of this is that 2hrs after I checked out I realized that I left a credit card locked in the safe. I have been calling all day and no one answers the desk. I called the reservation line and they sent a message to someone and I was sent to a lost and found voicemail. It's crazy that I have been calling for 5.5 hrs now and still can't speak to someone. All I want to know is if they can mail it or shred it (yes, the credit card company has been notified). Customer service is everything and this has blown any chances of me going back.

We didn't stay at the hotel. I booked a nearby house for a long weekend through Airbnb and then just booked tickets for snow tubing for my husband to take the kids. The online experience was terrible, I had to try three different times to submit. I then needed to add a ticket but they were sold out online. When I tried to call, was transferred over and over until I hung up. I then booked MORE tickets for same day/evening. I essentially spent over $700 on snowtubing (I have a lot of kids!)...what I don't appreciate is how slow they were to open up the time slot, cutting into the very short 2 hour tubing window only to ALSO have the end of the timeframe cut short because the employees wanted to "wrap up early" so they started to close lanes 30 mins early and complain loudly that people were still trying to snow tube. There's a lot of options in the Poconos - go somewhere else to ski.

After months of covid we wanted to go skiing with the kids (one needs lessons). Many places around NYC were booked and camelback was less than 2 hours from home and their website said they were at half capacity. I booked our room and we ended up with a clean, nice room with comfortable beds. We were immediately greeted by Kenny (awesome guy) who helped with bags and skis. We were able to valet our skis at the door which giving and retrieving was easy and convenient. The shuttle to the ski area was also a bonus (a lift for advanced skiers available just outside too). We only booked the hotel Bc I was told if I stayed at the lodge I’d be able to get my 4 year old into a ski lesson. Long story short... didn’t happen. We were sent multiple places, waited in long lines and were finally told “online says nothing is available” (I could have done that). So skiing was a bust Bc the 4 year old is bunny hills only. Camelback is filled with new skiers (which is great for those trying it out) but this also means your 9 and 8 year old getting cut off by snowboarders, groups on the hills stopped in the middle taking selfies and overall disregard for others skiing in front of them. The people working the chairlifts did little to nothing about crowd control. Lines were not followed and ended up going off in random directions as the rope maze remained vacant. The lift operators seemed clueless and at one point were having snowball fights vs slowing down the lift for a younger child to get on. Also no one checked lift tickets so I started looking and many people either didn’t have one or it was an old date I will also note that the tables and bathrooms at the ski area lodge showed no signs of people actively cleaning them. In a covid world I was shocked. The thirty camel, however, was very on it wiping down wise. More purell stations could be added here (we had to use the one in the kitchen). Also of note, if you plan to stay at camelback make reservations for dinner. After stressing about one (last minute trip), we walked up to find people asking about tables w the same group size and being seated. Either way appears to work. Other resort guests said they had to do take out from local places. We reluctantly used the Waterpark. Lifeguards were on it. Not many people (allegedly only guests can use it) and we went at off times to avoid crowds. Robert at the pool bar was so helpful and running around like crazy to make sure everyone was helped quickly. Hemispheres has a good breakfast. To make it easy we added this onto our reservation. All good and service was good. Lillian was so kind and helpful our first day. I gave camelback a 2 overall. In a covid world I’d give it a 1. I could tell more staff is needed to handle the extra cleaning, etc (never saw anything being cleaned at the arcade). I shared some concern with Kala at the front desk who did an amazing job of service recovery. It was clear from our conversation that the different areas (reservations, ski school, RAC) don’t communicate. I feel I was promised ski lessons just to book an expensive room and in the end my entire family was left stressed and questioning why we were even traveling in the first place.

Hello, first of all, we want to thank you for choosing Camelback Resort. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your room and that Kenny was of great assistance to you and your family. In regards to the ski lesson, all reservations, tickets, and lessons must be purchased/reserved online in advance to secure a spot. We want to assure you that we enforce our safety protocols every day on our property as safety is our top priority. We recommend making reservations for dinner for indoor dining as outdoor dining cannot be reserved. We are happy to hear you enjoyed Thirsty Camel, Hemispheres, and Aquatopia!
