This was our first time at this hotel and we were 110% satisfied. The staff was friendly and helpful, they offer complimentary beverages in the lobby (fresh iced tea and tropical juice). The hotel room was extremely clean, beds comfortable, a personal keurig in our room as well as a small refrigerator & microwave. Neutrogena bath products! This is the... More

Wilkes Barre has grown leaps and bounds in the 20 years I have been visiting. The Hilton Garden Inn is one of the best places to stay when visiting Wilkes Barre. Staff is very pleasant and professional.

The location is easy as others have said, and a lot of amenities are near by. The property seems newer and so everything works, nice fitness center. I do wish foam pillows were made available. Staff is great.

This is a great place to stay for the value. The rooms are renovated but the ventilation system is not. The beds are super comfy and the cooked to order breakfast is the best deal. We had to switch our rooms due to the airconditioning malfunction and it was noisy when it came on but otherwise the place is wonderful... More

Very nice hotel with many restaurants nearby and a great sushi restaurant right next door. The hotel is in sight of the traffic light at the interstate exit. There is also a shopping center beside the hotel in case you need anything.

We were in town a couple of weeks ago for an event in the Poconos. This hotel was a good location for us, with a comfortable, spacious room. It is within walking distance to a restaurant, and easy driving distance to several more. The room was very spacious, that's what we felt drove it above average for other hotels with... More

Three stars is probably grade inflation. It deserves no more than 2 and a half. The staff is nice and they try hard even if they are not aways effective. Overall, the hotel was fine for a couple of nights, especially given the lack of really great alternatives in the area. The room was clean enough to stay in, but... More

As expected, my most recent stay was another great experience. The friendly staff and clean rooms make this my hotel of choice when I'm in the area. The location is great, the breakfast was good and the drinks from the bar were nice and cold.
