Not as well appointed as some newer/larger Holiday Inn Expresses..roomy, but no mini-fridge, microwave, or work desk (though the double queen room we stayed in did have two chairs and table). Shower water constantly changes temp without moving control knob…and not a little either…it will go from scalding hot to freezing cold in an instant. This is a safety hazard if you think you're going to have your kid take a shower without constant supervision/temp adjustment. Main living area lacks adequate lighting with just two click lamps. Not sure how there are still hotels that allow smoking inside…while our non-smoking room was fine, the hallways do smell of smoke since there is really no way of preventing those smells from exiting smoking rooms. If arriving around dinnertime…definitely stop to eat beforehand. As other reviews have mentioned, there is really nothing out here at all.
The good? While rooms may lack amenities, they are well kept and clean. Staff was fantastic. Daily housekeeping fantastic. Pretty solid choice for a place to spend a couple nights if you're in town for events at Pocono Raceway…the hotel is right off I-80, so it is an easy 30-min drive right down the interstate to the track. In fact, one of the IndyCar teams and their driver was staying at the hotel…which was kinda cool chatting with them at breakfast. Though secluded…area is pretty safe/secure/quiet.
