After 12 hours on the road, we stopped for the night at the Hilton Garden Inn. From the moment walking in to the modern, airy, welcoming reception area to a cooked to order/buffet breakfast the next morning, we were extremely delighted with every aspect of our stay. Fresh, modern décor, clean large room (and bathroom), exceptional restaurant food and service,... More

We were part of a group and quoted a group rate and the rate was not honored. It should not matter when you call for a room or how many, when someone is bringing a group to your hotel you should be thrilled and honor the pricing. We paid and extra $150 for 2 nights. Why would anyone want to... More

Dear Mary Ellen P, Thank you for your recent Trip Advisor comment. We apologize for the poor experience you had during your recent stay. We do truly appreciate housing the attendees for the recent event at the arena. After reviewing your concern the group rate and room block cut-off had passed from when you made your reservation. Thank you again... More

We had no problems at all during our stay. I would stay again in the hotel if in the area again. It was very clean and the staff was wonderful. The hotel it self is beautiful and the rooms are comfortable. It is nicely located and very easy to get to. It is also located right across from the arena.

The Hilton Garden Inn in Wilkes-Barre was absolutely comfortable with an excellent staff that made our visit there just perfect. The food both in the restaurant and the breakfast buffet was very good. The guest services were perfect as we were not familiar with the area and the hotel shuttle took us to and from our venue. Perfect stay.

This is a wonderful hotel very convenient to the highway and restaurants in the area. Also a 5 minute drive to the casino. I don't want to complain at all, but there was a "mildew" type smell in the bathroom. I never brought it to anyone's attention, so that's my fault. That was the only sour note. EVERYTHING else was...

Hotel is in a good location - away from the highway enough so you don't hear it. Styed twice on recent trip up to New England on way up and back. Both times very pleasant staff and facilities. The HVAC is very loud, but common in this brand. They don't include breakfast (extra fee) which is strange since other Hilton... More

Always glad to get a room with a great bed. Room was very nice but only had one sheer curtain where it should have has two. And the one that was there was falling down--not very good housekeeping. Front desk staff seemed a bit snotty when we checked in but we always spoke when we went by and she seemed... More

Needed a hotel room asap and immediately referred to Trip Advisor. Also had recommended friends stay at a Hilton Garden Inn in Plymouth, Ma. in the past. Hotel was a welcome relief to a long day. Would stay again without hesitation.

For the past several years, we have stayed here as our overnight stop on the way to Ocean City MD. Once again, it was an excellent stay... the desk staff were more than friendly and efficient and the rooms were clean, well-appointed and quiet.
