Do Yourself A Favor - Stay Somewhere Else !
We booked a jacuzzi room with queen size bed , non smoking 4 weeks in advance online. I called in person to the inn to confirm it a week before our arrival. What I got was a smoking room with 2 double beds and no jacuzzi. They said they were sorry but they overbooked. They did refund my money and I went to the Super 8 and was happy there !
Bring your own
Check the sheets and pillows beforehand. Must wash them once a week.
Better still - bring your own.
The Shannon Inn was a last minute option for my boyfriend and I, as we needed somewhere to stay overnight 4th of July weekend. When we turned down the bed, we noticed not one but multiple blood stains on the sheets and pillow cases. After agruing we received new sheets, and in the morning we demanded money back. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone.
Haven't been back in two years and won't go.
Like many others here. I was a reguler at the old Shannon, We knew all the owners and had a great time with friends every weekend. We got to know all the entertainers like they were a part of the family. When the new managments took over, we tried to give it a chance. We continued to go there even when their liquor license was in transfer, and we had to bring our own beer. Slowly they started treating the regulars worse, cutting back on food quantities and rasing prices. The mug club was gone. Entertainers started having to pay for their rooms and meals (These used to be complimentary). Irish entertainers have to travel long distances to their gigs, high school bands dont. The last time I was there was to see one of our friends play, when we got there we found out that they were having karaoke instead. We left, and havet been back since. Their sole buisnes plan seems to be to catch the first New Yorkers coming in on Rt 80. Take their money quick and to hell with the regulars. New Yorkers, do youselves a favor, keep going on Rt 80 to the next hotel. There are better places in the Poconoes. The only thing left that is Irish is the name and they should change it, maybe "Shivas" would be better.
Need a course in customer relations?
A group of 75+ people take an annual ski trip to Shawnee Mountain. Each year we enjoy the overly accomodating staff at the Shannon Inn. This year however, the new owners must have fired the old staff and hired the wicked witches of the East. The desk clerk was very rude to me on the phone. She told me that she was tired of booking for our group. I could not believe what she said so I called back and asked for her manager. The queen ***** got on the phone and told me that if I didn't like what was told to me by the clerk then I should stay elsewhere. Unfortunately, I will be staying at the Shannon because it is too late to book elsewhere. However, next year we will be looking for another hotel. They need to change the name because they are disgracing the reputation of the Shannon Inn. A good name might be, The Stay Elsewhere Inn.
Grew up at the Shannon...
I grew up from age 8 spending every weekend at the Shannon. It became my second home- My family became friends with all the entertainers, as well as the managment and waiters/waitresses. I developed an acute love for Irish music here, and spend countless nights having the time of my life. The Shannon always had reasonable prices, great food, great entertainment, and most importantly, an amazing atmosphere. People used to refer to it as "a gem in the Poconos." Lately, the Shannon switched managment, and went downhill fast. It's no longer the getaway it way, it's no longer the Shannon's I knew. All the old staff has been replaced, the Irish entertainment is gone, no longer do people drive from hours away to spend a night here. Prices have sky-rocketed, and service has gone way down. Even the food has changed for the worse. Shannon's used to be a home away from home for us regulars... Now, in my opinion, it's an insult that they have even kept the name Shannon's...
Tis a Shame!!
I lived right down the road from the Shannon. I moved to Minisink Hills in the Summer of 2001.
I used to look forward to either walking or driving up to the Shannon every Saturday night. When friends from Ireland came to visit me, we all went to the Shannon and enjoyed great bands like Dave North, The Emmigrants, Timlin & Kane, etc. We rarely left there before midnight. We enjoyed the September 2001 Scot- Irish festival and St. Patricks day party there. Alas.....that would be the last enjoyable get togethers from then on. After "new management" took over the Irish atmosphire was gone. I was actually ashamed of the new "entertainment" if that is what you called it. People wouldn't belive me when I told them how the Shannon used to be just a year before.
The tri-color that hung at the pole was even faded and disgracefull looking.
Friends from Ireland now say that the Shannon: "Is Irish By Name Only" and wouldn't waste a penny in such a discgracefull establishment.
Good bye good old days at Shannon Inn............
Okay let's be candid here. The Shannon Inn is no Marriott. However, for a mere $85.00 you can lounge in a bed, or perhaps enjoy a continental breakfeast. If you are ready to take a dive or just a swim, the outdoor pool is only a few feet away. There is also entertainment, be it 70's karaoke, however we do miss the IRISH theme. (Irish Rule). For the review that bashed The Shannon Inn at least you got your money's worth. We are best friends who take a trip to the Old Shannon Inn once a year and also shop at the outlets. Basically it is a low budget, tons of fun weekend. See you soon. Stay ghetto fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Going Downhill Fast
We have been going to the Shannon for almost 7 years now. It recently changed owners and the prices are going up and the service is going down fast. It used to be the place to go. Always friendly faces, a puzzle in the lobby. A wonderful continental breakfast with fresh muffins etc. Now the price is up at least 30% the service is second rate and the continental breakfast consists of cold cereal and a danish still in the package.(not even a toaster to warm it). When I asked the desk clerks if they changed hands they said yes but didn't know who owned it, they thought 2 doctors. (Most likely a write-off). The family atmosphere is gone. The pub with the Irish music used to be a big draw. 2 weekends ago it was a man with a karioke singing the 70's songs. We sat at our table for 20 minutes and never got waited on. Got up and went to another club. Next stay is another lodging site. It is a shame. We used to love it there.
What a great indoor pool!
My fiance and I recently took a ski weekend up to the poconos. We stayed at the Shannon Inn. It was absolutely great. Apparently they just got done some renovations, and I must say it looks great. I would have loved to seen it before. They have a huge indoor pool along with a huge lounge. They are located right by Shawnee Ski Resort which was very convenient for us. We would definitely reccommed it.

When we got to Maryland it was so strange seeing mountains and hills again. Lots and lots of farmland too ---really pretty. Also, passed by lots of wineries along the way.

... is pretty intimidating) we sailed through and it only took about 3 hours. Lots of traffic and it was nothing we would have been comfortable driving the RV through but it all moved along nicely and we were very pleasantly surprised! Our incentive for doing this side trip was to see Chad, my stepson, who had flown in from Boise to meet some of his extended family for the first time. He was staying on Long Island so that’s where we went.
... town. Seems that a lot of the stars back in the day (love that expression! Must be the 40's, 50's etc when getting out of NY to the cooler temps in the mountains was the thing to do) came to Delaware Water Gap. They started an acting playhouse with the intent of offering local talent instruction in the craft as well as provide entertainment to the community. The playhouse is still in operation. Delaware Water Gap once had ...

The trip is pretty much non-eventful, some construction on I-80 and light traffic in the city. I wave as we pass by the Picatinny exit… no work for me for a few weeks! I point out Yankee Stadium as we pass through the Bronx. I relayed the story of the time I was taking my nephews home after Christmas break and we were flying out of LaGuardia. I ...
