My husband and I spent the weekend here for our wedding anniversary. We live only about 2 hours from the resort and it was our first trip to the Pocono's, so we really had no expectations. The Pocono's are absolutely breathtaking in the fall, so just the drive to the resort and around the town was a blast.
On our way home we stopped at "Happy Trails Horseback Riding" and had such a blast! Just make sure you call and make a reservation. Staff was wonderful and the trail was over an hour long!
The hotel itself was extremely clean, modern amenities and spacious. I was a bit concerned about the noise since there was a casino below, but we never heard a peep. The people in the room beside ours were extremely noisy, however, one call to the front desk and we never heard them again.
We ate at the buffet the first night, which was a Friday, and thankfully we picked that night over Saturday because on Saturday it was absolutely packed. There was an hour wait just to buy your "meal" and then an hour wait to get seated. The food in the buffet was not fantastic, but it wasn't awful either. If I had one complaint about the food, it was that there wasn't much selection for vegetarians, but that's a pretty common complaint, especially in the PA area.
We're definitely not gamblers, so we won't be staying at a Casino again. Besides eating or gambling, there wasn't anything to do. There was the very expensive spa, which seemed to be closed every time we poked our heads in. It's a shame there's no pool or jacuzzi available either.
Parking was terrible because everyone in the area comes on Friday & Saturday nights to the Casino and there is no designated parking lot for guests, so you have to circle until something becomes available. And forget trying to get to your room without being carded or bombarded by security since you have to walk through the casino to get there.
Overall we had a good stay and enjoyed finding new things to do outside the resort. There's a pottery place nearby, "poke a nose" and also some great thrift shops around if you're interested in flea markets. Also, the large mall outlet is a 10 minute drive and worth the trip- tons of stores!
I wouldn't come back but I did enjoy the cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff. They were very willing to share maps, town information and directions to and from all of the places we wanted to go.
