“Great food, friendly, helpful staff, acceptable rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

This is a smoker-friendly hotel which we found on the smokers-united website, so it was our number one choice for our visit to the Mount Pocono area; one of only two such hotels in Bartonsville, PA. Three weekend nights for only $242.89!! The lobby is beautiful; the staff was very helpful and accommodating. The Serengeti Bar and Grill restaurant dining and room service menus provide a wide array of meal choices, and the food was excellent for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Food prices were unbelievably reasonable (10% discount for hotel guests). Sure, our room (with fridge, microwave, coffee maker, hairdryer, free wi-fi service, cable TV, etc.) was not top of the line with some need for renovating, but we were very comfortable and very tolerant of minor usage damage. (By the way, there is a huge mall directly across the highway for any interested shoppers or diners.) We would definitely stay here again. Thanks, Hojo!

Just letting everyone know...DO NOT STAY THERE!!! At first the lobby looks ok,but as soon as you enter the the rooms section,it smells of mold and the room we got was full of ceiling mold,stained towels, cigarette burns on bed.so bad We took a shore with our sandals on.Not a good experience to our first visit to the poconos!

This hotel Was great. The one thing that could be better was if they offered free breakfast. Otherwise, GREAT.
