We stayed there for several days in October 2012 with our young daughter. We all had the best time. The small details and attentive staff made all the difference in our experience. We loved the nighttime smores and bedtime cookies! Always something to do and such a beautiful view from the property! We really could've stayed longer and would love to come back. The staff were all really great and the rooms were spotless and comfortable. The bathroom is a bit small but very clean...and the pool and hot tub were great.

We had a rather mixed experience during our one night stay in August 2012. After an 8 hour drive we were very happy to sit down to dinner in the lovely dining room. We enjoyed an excellent dinner for $125 including wine with a great view of the grounds. Too bad there was a very loud man verbally abusing his female companion as he drank more and more. We skipped coffee and left for a walk around the hotel. Our room was rather quaint – a king size bed in a room that was not much bigger – and a step up to the shower-sided washroom. A bigger surprise awaited us. The wall was paper thin and the door to the adjoining room was so poorly hung that we could hear every word in the room next door from – the abusive man in the restaurant. We cranked up the room fan and endured a fitful night of sleep while looking forward to a nice breakfast and our pre-booked golf game – the only reason we chose this place! Alas, the morning was a solid downpour and we decided to check out after breakfast instead of getting soaked before our four hour drive to Atlantic City. When we informed the front desk of our change in plans we were told that the golf game would be charged because we had booked “the expedia package”. In fact we had booked directly with the hotel who had honoured the expedia price quote. What could we do but pay for the golf game we didn’t play as per the terms of our booking. The moral of the story is “don’t pre-book your golf at Shawnee Inn if the weather forecast is not perfect.”

Room Tip: Unless you love the course, you can get better value elsewhere.

We spent 3 days and 2 nights in the Worthington Suite and had a blast. The Worthington building is separate from the main inn, located among golf condos but an easy 5 minute walk to the main building. You cannot beat the Shawnee Inn's location on the banks of the Delaware River. They have a beautiful porch with rocking chairs overlooking the River. You can walk along the river and the have a number of benches along the edge.
Our room was incredible, Worthington 2 West on the 2nd floor. The room had a fully equipped kitchen, a beautiful sitting area with gas fireplace, huge bathroom with jacuzzi tub, and extremely comfortable king sized bed. All modern and comfortable. We especially loved the fireplace, very romantic.
The service was wonderful. I told them we were coming for our wedding anniversary and when we got to our room there was a card and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us. The concierge Tara was very helpful providing information on the Delaware Water Gap and they had a great guide on local hiking prepared by the Inn.
We ate in the River Room during our stay and everything was delicious. Again staff was great and we appreciated that the bar tender remembered us the next night when we came in again for a drink.
Overall we had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend the Worthington Suite.

Played this tract for the first time in 15 years. Back then it needed a lot of TLC which I guess they couldn't afford ? Now, it is in the best shape I think I have ever seen. This mature course has 27 great holes that harken back to the "Old Days". No gimmicks, just Golf. Take some time and stroll through the halls and view the photos of the good times and the not so good. Quiet and picture perfect at this time of year. Give it a try. I think you will be suprised........

The Shawnee offers a relaxing getaway whether you are a golf buff or not. The grounds on the Delaware River are beautiful and anyone can enjoy the putting green. The hotel is lovely and the staff is friendly and helpful. On site restaurant offers good food. And it is very close to I80. We would recommend it highly. The only problem was that we had an adjoining room and we coujld hear the people in the next room.

Room Tip: Make sure it is not an adjoining room

We stayed at the Inn for a family wedding, in December, so Golf was not an issue for us. The room was old, small and had a king sized bed crushed into it when it was probably originally made for a double bed. The bathroom was old. While not dirty, as such, the place had a feel, putting it nicely, of not modern.

Dear Bon6124,

I am sorry to hear that you felt our rooms and bathrooms were on the small side. Because the property was built in 1911, each guest room has a unique configuration and may differ in size. These lodging variations are typical of historic properties and we hope people see this as part of the charm and elegance of our beautiful Poconos resort. I will speak to our housekeeping department about the cleanliness of your room. There is no excuse for the room not being clean. I apologize and hope you will give our resort another chance.
