“An Awesome Romantic Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

This was my first time staying at the Woodlands Inn. Its right off the highway but once inside you would never know it!! My husband and I stayed for one night as a quick romantic getaway. The rooms were very clean, hotel was very quiet and the service from the front desk to the restaurants was amazing. Everyone was very friendly and more than willing to accomodate whatever our needs were. Mohegan Sun Pocono Downs is a minutes drive down the road. It was a great pleasurable experience.

Room Tip: If available ask for a streamside room. They also have poolside rooms.

I can't believe what a GREAT place this was! We had a great time there. The employees were exceptionally caring and accomodating. The free breakfast buffet was more than we expected considering it came with the room! We will definitely stay there again. The grounds are stunning as is the stream rushing by the outdoor bar.

Worst stay ever we were staying one night for a graduation in the area, the hotel had was fully booked,There was a wedding going on and when the wedding party came up to there floor they block the elevator and party in the hallway and would not let anyone go up or down the elevator. I call the front desk and they said they had 5 other noise issues going on in the building and would get to us as soon as they could.30min later still no help party still going on in the hallway. When I called again they still did not get anyone to correct the issue I went out and took care of the noise myself. I spoke to the front desk the next morning and they refunded the room which would have been ok, but a few days later they charged my card again!!!! Now I called the hotel and spoke to the front desk again, they explained that their bank had made the mistake and will put the money back in my account. Now a week has past buy and still no refund to my account. Not only did I go through all these hassle and no sleep for a night. when we came back from dinner there was no parking available for us and about five other guest circling the parking lot for a space, we all had to park across the street about a tenth of a mile from the hotel. I would not suggest staying here ever!!

This was a last minute booking on-line, for a Holiday Weekend. We were pleasantly surprised. The Inn had Great Accomodations...Clean and Modern. They had a Great Staff, Great In-House Restaurants, Bars, and Night Clubs as well as a Shuttle to and from the Casino. I will Definately stay there again. The price of the rooms and what they include with their price, is definately worth the money, especially in these difficult economic times.

Room Tip: Ask for the Room that overlooks the beautiful creek

The Woodlands Inn is a wonderful place to go for a nice little getaway. We love it because it's close to home (only about an hour or so away) and it's close to Mohegan Sun Casino. It's stretched out right along a beautiful creek, and offers the most awesome jacuzzi around - it's huge! It always offers both indoor and outdoor pools, of which we have enjoyed both. The food from the various restaurants is always good, although I wish Crecenzo's offered a little larger breakfast buffet. The staff is courteous, friendly and always right on top of things. They have a shuttle that delivers you to and picks you up right at the casino entrance. This is nice because parking there can be bothersome. They always have a nice little trail you can walk on to take in the nature around the resort. Overall, we love it!

Room Tip: The tower suites are great, as are the streamside rooms with their own little deck. Avoid the furthe...

This property needs to figure out if it wants to be a nightclub or a resort. It simply cannot be both. If you are a night owl, then staying here would be nice, but if you like to go to sleep before 2AM, then stay away.
This resort has a nightclub that is very close to the rooms. I thought we would be safe from the noise since our room was "streamside" and away from the nightclub, but we were woken up several times by party-goers in the halls running, shouting and singing.

The room itself is nice and clean.

The spa is adequate and a good value for the price.

Parking is terrible.
