“A Bargain”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Older property that shows wear and tear. But it was very clean and the staff very friendly. The room I booked at a very reasonable AAA rate turned out to be a spacious suite with separate bedroom, living room and kitchenette. Provided breakfast is bare bones. I was in the area to cycle the Lehigh Gorge State Park trail. Location is somewhat remote, but easy to reach from Interstate 80. It's about 20 minutes to Pocono Whitewater's rafting base, and 35 minutes to downtown Jim Thorpe. Jack Frost Ski Area is nearby. Yet all things considered, it was a bargain for a national chain.

The room was a spotless 1 bedroom apartment, which consisted of a refrigerator, a stove, and a microwave! There were 2 televisions in the apartment. The rental rates were spectacular. The noise from the road was minimal. The staff were incredibly friendly, indeed! AAA is accepted and provides a 10% discount.

Room Tip: Get something on the first floor.

Although the hotel needs quite a bit of renovations, the room was more than expected, it had a living room, eating area, kitchen and separate bedroom and two TVs which is a plus when there are kids with you.

The outside areas of this place do leave a lot to be desired,but upon opening the door to the room,it was a complete turnaround.
A spacious front lounging area with a sofa,table and TV was coupled with a fridge,stove,microwave, sink and a large dinner table.
The bed was comfy,but the pillows left a lot of the filling elsewhere,TV channel selection was good,breakfast was generic but had enough for everyone,donuts were great and coffee was extremely hot,did not try cereal,or other offerings.Orange juice was good and cold.
Bathroom and shower facilities were well lit,roomy and shower water had great pressure and water was nothing short of hot.
For a quick stopover and the price paid this served it's purpose,no bugs,no musty room odor and a view of deer roaming in the backwoods.Plenty of closet and cabinet space if needed.Close to gas station,food venues if you decide not to cook anything in your room,2 major highways close by.
If your expecting a palace and all the amenities,this will falls short,if you need a quick stop and don't mind the exterior view,it will get you through the evening and morning.

We booked here after researching locations around Jim Thorpe PA - this one is nowhere near but is a mile or so away from Jack Frost, a major ski resort. The Inn is a couple of miles off of a highway and if you blink you'll miss the sign. The driveway is paved and lined with shrubs but the rest of the parking lot and the office are, for lack of a better word, cruddy. I didn't expect anything after seeing the condition of the exterior but that the room would be in the same run down condition. I was very pleasantly surprised to walk into our tidy mini suite. It seems that they have rennovated the rooms although the exterior - stairs, railings, etc. - were still in dismal condition. We only stayed a night and had their "continental" breakfast next morning and got out quickly. I do have to say that the separate bedroom with a door was nice and that the tv was a flat screen, the room was large, and the bed was cushy. Also, it was very quiet at night. This spot would be ideal for a group or family on a ski weekend and the price was right.

went there for a night because other palce we were at had no heat in the room so we paid again to stay there. the room was not cleaned when we got there but told it would be taken care of so we went to supper and came back the room was done . was a cute place and good price. only thing was the attitude of the manager at first because of saying we are trying to get money back from other palce she said well you saw the room dont be saying you will stay then a couple hrs later want a refund, i said it was not like that at this other palce there was no hear and was told to stay alittle while to see if the heat worked or got warmer she says ok. well didnt like the fact that it weas assum,ed it was our fault for leaving the otehr place when it clearly was not. it was a heating issue now my wife is sick from sitting in the cold room for three hrs waiting to see if room got any warmer. it was all a big misunderstanding noones fault heat ddint work properly im sure it was resolved. the heating issue that is. if ya want a cute apartment looking palce to stay at a good rate this is the place for you.

My husband and I had went there last night for a room, it is our anniversary, the little apartment that we stayed in was cozy and warm. I like how it separates everything and it looks like a little apartment. The bed was so soft and comfortable , i had no trouble sleeping. The room had good heat in it, which was great to have since it was so cold outside. will go there again. thank you
