We didn't stay even 1 night A review of Penn Hills Resort
We checked into this dump for our honeymoon and were immediately disappointed. We were told we were in the "top of the line" room, the Mountain villa, which turned out to be a very drab cabin at the top of a VERY steep, holey incline. The decor of this cabin was trashy--red shag carpeting on the walls, gray walls and floor carpeting, plastic roman columns surrounding the bed, brown carpeting on the ceiling above the bed surrounding a big chipped mirror. The mirrors were everywhere, and poorly placed--when I went to use the toilet, which had NO DOOR, my new husband could see me sitting on the toilet two rooms over in the living room! The balcony contained some old patio furniture, and the screen door was broken. Little tin ashtrays everywhere, small old looking TV on a small old looking wooden stand. The heart shaped whirlpool looked like it had been painted over with red paint about a hundred times. We had to go to the gift shop to pick up our free fire log and champagne--the gift shop was a dark, musty room filled with T shirts and not much else. Basically from the brochures they sent us, we were expecting a glamourous "love nest" and got a 1970's porn movie set. The reason we booked this place was because we figured we couldn't afford Caesar's--but after 10 minutes of crying my eyes out in the cabin, we called Caesar's and re-booked there instead. By the way, Caesar's was wonderful--we stayed at Paradise Stream, 25 minutes away, but it felt like a different country compared to Penn Hills! I do have one good thing to say about Penn Hills--when we checked out (30 minutes after checking in) the front desk lady was nice to us and refunded all our money except the $100 deposit. Spend the extra cash and go to Caesar's, especially if you're honeymooning!
