The main feature today was a visit to the Martin Guitar Factory in Nazareth, a short trip from Bethlehem. Martin make my favourite guitars and we joined a tour of the manufacturing facility. All guitars are hand made, with the help of a couple of robot lasers. I got the chance to strum a D28, the Eagles favourite and it is definitely on my shopping list (one ...

This morning, a nice lady came by and asked to take a picture of Luke. She was capturing pics of all the pets at Camporama for the scrapbook.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Inn at Pocono Manor
If you want old world charm and a family feeling, go to Pocono Manor. The hotel has that old world charm that makes you feel warm and comfortable. Walk out the door and nestle yourself in the trees. Go for a swim, play golf or go to the Spa.
We met for a family reunion and we re-booked before we left. The children were thrilled and the adults were busy. The staff made us feel so comfortable that we felt like family.
We met all types of people that felt the same way we did; couples celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, reunions or friends getting away for the quiet weekend. The size of Pocono Manor and the array of ammenities lends itself to everyone!
Can't wait to go back.
My husband & I stayed at the Pocono Manor for a convention. Our room was absolutely the most disgusting hotel room I have ever been in. The ceiling light was full of dead bugs, the curtains had yellow stains on them, the bathroom had hair in the tub and on the floor and mold around all edges. The bed was so old and uncomfortable that we got no sleep and were in pain the next day. No amenities - no minibar, no room service, horrible bath products. Old furniture and an ancient TV. Others in our group had the same problems. Such a shame - with some upgrading and staff changes - could be charming. When we complained - the staff refused to listen, would not even look at our room to confirm the filth & refused to get the hotel manager. Unprofessional to say the least. Needless to say - we left early. Would never return and I advise everyone to stay away.
What a wonderfully charming place! We havent been to the Manor in quite awhile and when we went back we were overwhelmed with the improvements and upgrades that have been done to this property. They must have spent an obscene amount of money on these upgrades, from the spa to the golf course we just enjoyed every minute spent there. We cant wait to return.
I surprised my wife with a weekend to Pocono Manor Resort and Spa over Labor Day Weekend 2004. As we pulled onto the property we were overtaken with how beauitful the property is for an older hotel. Our room was equally as nice. Must have been some recent upgrades because the bathroom hard marble on the walls and there was a flatscreen t.v. We stayed on the sixth floor, and the only problem we had was the air conditioner did not work. However it really wasnt a problem, since it was cool outside we slept with the windows open. My wife and I got a couples massage, and loved the spa, it was worth every penny! We got the package at the hotlel that included meals. The dinners were great, but the breakfast was worth skipping. Overall we liked the place and would stay again, however I thought it was a little pricey for the overall package.
Gross! When we got in our room we discovered it hadn't even been cleaned! The bed wasn't made, the old linens were still on it and there was dirt and hair covering every flat surface! The staff was horrible and there was absolutely nothing to do. We left right away of course and they offered us 4 free nights or $100. WHAT????!!!!! Ok, so 4 nights in the hotel is worth $100 to them? I don't get how a place like that stays open.
The Pocono Manor was horrible. The hotel is over 80 years old and it shows. As with a previous reviewer, we had problems with the heating/air conditioning unit in our room. It was extremely loud, and turned on for a few minutes and then off for a few about every ten minutes, making sleeping, talking or watching TV extremely difficult. Speaking of the TV, it was a 13 inch color TV that was approximately 25 years old! The bed was also quite uncomfortable. We thought the food was okay and the service excellent, with the exception of the evening Maitre'D; we asked our server to ask the him to tell a couple who kept receiving cell phone calls to turn their phones off or to go outside, but he did not do anything, forcing me to confront the couple, causing a scene.
NOT a great value here. This is a very old lodge and gives you a glimpse of what another world might have been... but it is time to modernize! My husband took a terrible fall in the dark, icy parking lot, I found a chard of wine bottle cap in my child's meal, other guests found left-behind pills of all colors under their child's hotel bed. Careless service, poor quality, out-of-date facility that needs some attention. Until then, learn about this place in the history books.
We had a great time
My family had a great time here. Old Hotel (100 years plus) but charming, no glitz old world much like old resorts in Europe. We were there for dog sled races and sking, they have a great Spa.
What a Dump!
The Pocono Manor is an incredibly-overpriced dump. We were there in the winter, and the in-room heating when on every 10 minutes. It made such a racket that no one in my family got any sleep! The rooms were large, but with little furniture. The bed was unfomfortable, and for $189 a night! The room had no minibar, and a TV from 30 years ago. I asked about using the indoor pool, and they said that would "open it up" for me if I asked. The food was absolutely disgusting as well. We checked out early after one night, which we have never done before. Don't go there.
Horrible and Tired
Food - horrible - couldn't eat my dinner Rooms - small Sheets - ripped Service - not much No room service No full length mirror in room No hairdryer in room Pool - gross Gym - equipment old For the amount of $ charged, definitely not worth it. Go somewhere else!!!! TRUST ME!
