Front desk staff friendly, helpful. Two good restaurants on site, Bar and Nightclub crowded on the weekend we were there. Shuttle bus service to Mohegan Sun Casino. Two pools, one indoor, one outdoor. Only drawback, signage to rooms confusing.

My husband and I stayed for his birthday weekend and had an excellent time. We've alsways passed when visiting family and friends in Wilkes Barre, PA and promised each other we would stay there one day, so when it was time for my husbands birthday, it was a pleasent surprise for him.

Dear Laura R: Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am glad you finally stayed after many visits to Wilkes-Barre. What event should we celebrate next? Why not make it a spa weekend, book a few treatments, bottle of champagne, enjoy both of our restaurants as well as our nightlife. Again, thank you for the review... More

My husband booked this hotel for our anniversary because he thought it was in the woods where we could go hiking (cause that's just what we do). But upon arrival, when the GPS had reached the destination, his face deflated because the inn was right across the street from a car dealership. So at that point we were not expecting... More

I recently stayed overnight as the last night of a bus trip. We got the best night's sleep of the trip. The room, in the Tower, was very nice, with the exception of no counter space in the bathroom. Very awkward trying to use our toiletries.

This facility is great for those seeking lodging close to the casino. If you are interested in in-town activities, this is not the place to stay. Nor is this a good location for handicapped lodgers; too many steps and too long a walk to the restaurants. Restaurants offer mediocre food, but service was good and friendly.
