"We got a package with water park tickets and discounts for eateries on hotel premise. It was awesome and well worth the price. The hotel had 3 swimming pools including indoor Jacuzzi and we enjoyed them till 10pm. The room itself was rather small and very basic but staffs were very friendly. Live music at night was pretty good. We definitely recommend this especially for families."

Rooms & Rates

Overview

This family-friendly destination is close to state parks, ski areas and Poconos sightseeing, but with so many options on site, you may not need to leave. 

Rooms at the Woodlands feature two full-size beds and flat-panel televisions. Many include a private balcony overlooking Laurel Run Creek that runs right alongside the property. 

Dining options exceed the usual American fare at most other hotels -- the brick oven pizza at Crescenzo's comes "highly recommended" (Examiner.com), while the sushi and hibachi offerings at Shogun earn 4 stars from Urbanspoon visitors. 

Paddle off those calories at the huge, indoor, 17,000-gallon hot tub, nearly the size of a swimming pool itself, or put the kids to bed and dance cares away at the Evolution nightclub. A more casual experience is available with cocktails and apps at SKYY Vu's riverside deck, complete with outdoor cigar bar.

The stream behind the hotel with the ducks and the trails. The view of greenery from the balcony.

It is under construction, not in the best condition. The breakfast was mediocre, the pool needs a divider rope from where the water goes from 5ft to 9ft, someone almost drowned, they also need a pole or some kind of rescue equipment on the wall of pool, emergency button. The water was murky in pool and hot tub you van not see the bottom.The chlorine burnt our eyes. There is not enough lighting on stairs, through the hallways, or restaurant. We tripped on steps several times and could not see our food. The balconies need to be cleaned, it was covered with spiders and webs. The property needs some TLC. However most of the front desk staff had great customer service 5 stars for Bianca. The kitchen staff needs some more training and need to learn to smile, Misty was great though. We did not get to go to the water park because of heavy rain and the cool weather, so our tickets were wasted.

The hotel was fantastic. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms updated and clean. Enjoyed the open bar 5-6pm during a weeknight stay. The dinner and breakfast were great. Loved the waffles w fresh strawberries and whipped cream. Could not have been happier.

The water park was small but fun. There were no lines. Food was expensive at the water park, but it would have been easy enough to run off site to eat and go back.

The location was great for our other activities we had planned and my kids loved the pools. I liked the convenience of the restaurants in the hotel.

Indoor pool and outdoor pool were great-although there were no lifeguards there was always a pool attendant on duty who was constantly asking guests if they had any needs. Also loved that the restaurant was right next to the pool and waitress would take orders and deliver poolside. Outdoor pool was heated. Indoor pool very clean and the Jacuzzi is huge. Drinks on the deck were free for hotel guests 5-6 and apparently this is daily. Staff were all helpful and friendly. Hotel desk gave Tylenol no charge. This was our 2nd year and we would go again!

Breakfast was nice and was included. There was always a line at the waffle-maker. They had 2-I think they could invest in a 3rd! Service was slow for dinner and they forgot to deliver 2 of our items but they did rectify. We enjoyed sitting on the deck. We were able to find things to eat on the menu but a kids menu would be nice. There were other families with kids. Bathroom nice and clean-no tub but that was fine for 1 night.
