We " RAN AWAY" from Shawnee resort in East Stroudsburg , We intended to stay at the other aforementioned place. We got a " Smoking Room" on the ground floor. Although they only had two separate beds, We took the room and quickly moved in and FROM THE BEAUTIFUL LOBBY, And the very neatly dressed folks at the front desk, We had breakfast at the " Serengetti restaurant" we came in 10 minutes before they closed but we were NOT turned away we were quickly sat down and just as fast served breakfast By What I think was the friendliest Server IN Pennsylvania. My wife and I got up and traveled the Antique shops in Pocono, All the different shops. We made a trip to a local restaurant called " La Familia Chuchifrito" for Puerto Rican styled food. We got stuffed for under 25 dollars! Across the street from the hotel is a " Texas Longhorn" chain styled Restaurant and it was full, a long line to get in BUT well worth the wait. Service,Food and the Worlds best " watermelon Margaritas" 2 t~ Boned steaks, Loaded mashed " tators", Salad. The super friendly Local folks bought my wife and I a few drinks and we reciprocated and we drank and had a " Blast " The best part of it was we DIDN'T HAVE TO DRIVE! We walked across the street to the lobby and back to our rooms! We walked back to our Freshly vac'd room, fresh towels, Dusted tables and all the ash trays Nice and clean! No this place Is Far from a 4 Star hotel, But it is not a Pay by the hour" style place. We stayed 3 great nights and down the road 1/4 mile is a " Giant " supermarket where you can pick up muchies, candy by the pound, At super reasonable prices. On our Next trip to P.A WE WILL MAKE IT A POINT TO STAY HERE! except in a Non- Smoking room.
