“very small room”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

We booked a two night stay through Snique Away in a standard king room. While checking in we asked if they could upgrade us to a River View as the parking lot was almost empty. While they did do this, they neglected to tell us they were putting us into the smallest room I have every had in any hotel anywhere, with a queen bed. I would have preferred a larger king room without a view. They were unable to change the room a little later and we were stuck for two nights, very very uncomfortable. The bed almost touched the walls on all sides and there was no addition seating. The bath room was also small and cramped.

Thank you for writing about your experience. Due to the historic nature of the resort, our rooms vary in size. We have made every attempt to make the guest rooms comfortable with well appointed bed linen, unique amenites (pillow menu, sleep menu, pet plant, etc...), and all natural bathroom products. We put an emphasis on the outdoors and relaxing public spaces for the guests to enjoy. I apologize for your experience and hope that you will give us another chance.

My husband and I were so glad to find this gem. We were on a trip to celebrate our anniversary and found this through hotwire. It was an amazing place for an amazing price. The history of the hotel, the friendliness of the staff, the setting all were perfect for our Autumn Trip. Lots to do in the area and alot of nice little restaurants close by. Highly recommend

Was here for one night this past weekend for my cousin's wedding. The resort had only gotten power back from the storm at 10pm the night before, but everything seemed up and running properly to me. We were even given a better price than I found online because they had a "Hurricane Package" that included the room and breakfast the next day. Details: Room - King bed room, a bit small, but it's an older hotel, so I wouldn't expect much bigger. The bed was comfortable. The details are older (window panes, light switches, bathroom fixtures) but I found it kind of charming. Could use an update, but was comfortable and adequate. The free breakfast was very good- had an omlette made to order and the rest was buffet, but was fine. I really liked the old feel to the hotel, and actually wish we had more time to explore.

Even Hurricane Sandy, no power and no phones, trees and power lines down everywhere, but Mark, Jordan, and Brett (I'm sure there were many others we didn't see...in the dark), were all smiles and checked us right in...no charge for the night. Bob, the manager greeted us in the dining room (he'd found a D-D and brought in coffee!) in what looked like a freshly pressed business suit! The kitchen had set up a breakfast buffet with home made granola -- that alone was worth going down for -- juices. Just nothing cooked...obviously. OK, they had to close, since no one knew for sure when power would be back on, but these guys made the whole experience memorable. Imagine what they'd be like with lights on!

Room Tip: Get a river view!

My wife passed away 3 weeks ago and I needed a place to unwind from all the details involved with her death before I got burned out. As a golfer, thought the resort would be a great place to go and it turned out to be an excellent retreat. Played all 3 nine hole courses over two days and they were in great condition and the pro shop staff was very helpful. Enjoyed the food in the River Room and had excellent service. Used the hot tub to soak my body and had a great massage from Patricia. My room had a nice non river view, Got a great rate by staying Sunday through Wed. morning and even sat in on a concert on Tuesday evening next to a blazing fire. in the lounge fireplace. Everything was more than satisfactory and I met and talked with the General Manager who has won awards in 2010 and 2011 for his expertise in resort management.He is very responsive to your suggestions. It was a great choice and I could not have been more satisfied. Try it-you will like it! Dick Atherley, Willow Valley Retirement Communities, Willow St., Pa.

The Shawnee Inn is in a most picturesque setting. Rooms are delightful and dining is exquisite. Loved the pub and restaurant on the grounds by the gate. Manager there is super and fun! He even allowed me to bring in a home made birthday cake to celebrate a friend's birthday. A fun spot! The food was super and plentiful! All personnel at the Inn aim to please and go out of their way to make sure your time there is absolute perfection. Entertainment in Lobby every Tuesday night is free. Although I did not use the pool or spa, the pool is enormous and the spa has everything you desire to pamper yourself. Parking is great. If you wish to treat yourself to a stay in one of the greatest Inns, stay here RELAX and ENJOY! Would stay here again. Also, wonderful rooms for corporate meetings.

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.
