“Nice hotel, 10 minutes from Camelback!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

We chose this hotel in Stroudsburg over some of the "closer" hotels in Tannersville, because it was new and had received good reviews. The hotel is close enough to Camelback and it was clean, reasonably priced, had a heated pool, and complimentary breakfast. Our room, which had two queens, and a pull out sofa plus kitchenette, came to a total (with AAA and including tax) $129, which I thought was more than reasonable. I only wish that the beds were separated from the sofa area with a curtain or door and that the TV was in the sofa area as opposed to in front of the beds, but that is just my preference. It really worked out fine for our one night stay. The complimentary breakfast is a nice feature, but is a little sparse compared with other hotels we have stayed at. It does include, eggs, bacon, cereal, pancakes and fresh fruit. The heated pool was great! It's not terribly big, but it was not crowded when we stayed. We would definitely stay again!

This hotel is less than 2 years old and is very nice for its class. The jacuzzi room was very large and the tub worked great. The fridge initially was not working, then worked, but the morning of our departure found that it had not been working through the night. The bed was very comfortable and TV was large with a variety of channels. This is a very clean hotel and the rugs are in great condition. The pool is salt water with a little chlorine and was large enough to swim laps. And it was heated nicely; this hotel does not cheapskate its guests with an inadequately heated pool.The adjacent hot tub was fine. My only gripe is that we called twice to request a room away from the elevator and quiet. We also informed the front desk that we would be checking in after 8 pm. On our arrival we were told that our room was right next to the elevator. And they give out the rooms in order of who checks in earliest. I think it would have been proper if we were told of this in advance.

Thank you for the review! I am sorry about your request not being able to be honored, we do try very hard to accommodate all our Guest requests, sometimes depending on the room type and how many Guests we already have checked into the hotel for that room accommodation we can not always get everyone exactly where they want to be. Again, I am sorry and next time just call the day of and ask for the Manager on Duty and we will try our very best to make sure your request is honored or we will let you know ahead of time if it is unavailable. I’m glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay, and again the next time you come just ask for me or the Manager on Duty for any of your requests! Thanks again for the review and hopefully we see you the next time you are in the Poconos!

We stayed at Holiday Inn Express on Oscar weekend. We went into the pool, which was really cool!!! The TV had no problems, and neither did the Internet connection. This is the second year in a row we've stayed here, and both times it was good

Conveniently located off Route 80, it is about 15 minutes from Camelback. The rooms are clean and our king suite was very spacious. Nice to have a fridge and sink and table area. Our family spent a lot of time in the pool and hot tub, and we weren't the only ones with that idea. That's great with kids or when these old bones are sore after a day of skiing. The free breakfast was pretty good and extensive; eggs, pancakes, muffins, bagels, oatmeal, cereal, yoghurt, etc. The only negative was that on both days they started pulling stuff off the buffet before 10am. If you say you have brunch until 10am, don't start taking food away at 9:55am! The five minutes it saves the worker is not worth the ill will it generates in the paying guests. And the girls at the front desk could be a bit more pleasant. I liked the woman who cleaned our room; she was very nice and did a good job. Overall, I would gladly go back.

Thank you for the review! I’m sorry about your experience at breakfast and at the Front Desk, we will definitely speak to those departments and make sure our breakfast bar is not having food taken off until closing time. I will also pass on the comments to the housekeeping department! Thank you and we hope to see you again!

The hotel is right off of the highway so very convenient to get to. We had a two nights reservation for 4 adults with two queen beds. The room is decent sized that we didn't feel too crowded. The room comes equiped with a microwave and a fridge. The fridge in our room did not work however and we informed the front desk. The offered to come up and fix it, but since we were only there for two days, it wasn't necessary. Hoping they fixed it after we left. The morning breakfast variety is nice and there is someone nearby always restocking so you there is plenty. Service is what you expect, nothing above and beyond, I came in, received my room key and nothing memorable about the check in or check out process. Keep in mind the ski package is only for Shawnee Mountain, not Camelback. It was a holiday weekend so the price was more on the steep end which was expected. For the price however, I would have rather stayed in one of the bed and breakfast locations closer to the mountains/ski resorts. Next year will book early to stay there, or go to Holiday Inn on a non holiday weekend, definitely not worth the $250+ a night.

Room Tip: Seems that the kitchenettes are nicer in the one bedroom rooms as there is a nice sink area with ext...

This hotel is renewed, very clean and the beds are very comfortable. Located in a covenient are near Camelback ski park, restaurants and outlets. Breakfast is not the best but it is acceptable. We definitely would return to this hotel on our next ski vacations. The only bad thing? no in-site restaurant. The recepcionist was very kind and helpful when we arrived since we needed our room before check in time.

99% of even the nicer hotels in the poconos are showing their age. This hotel is new, clean, and in a good location between a few different ski resorts. We went to Shawnee which was about a 10 minute easy drive. The property location is squeezed in between other local businesses, so it kind of seems out of place, but who cares. The hotel is very nice, the rooms are very nice....everything newer and clean! We went on Presidents day weekend, which is probably one of the few really busy weekends in the Poconos anymore. Breakfast was CROWDED and we couldn't get a table any day we were there.....but I'm guessing that's not usually a problem. We're not the biggest fans of the poconos but it's local.....I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! I am so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. I do apologize about the seating in breakfast, you are correct President’s day is one of the busier weekends here and we did have a few ski groups that weekend. It’s not always so crazy! Thanks again for the review and we hope to see you next time you are in the Poconos!
