We recently stayed at the Hilton garden inn while my son was at his college orientation. It's a beautiful spotless clean hotel! It's a nice location with stores and restaurants within walking distance. We plan on staying there again when my son has more college activities that we will be attending. I definitely recommend this hotel!

Walmart, several restaurants, and a wine and spirit store. The shuttle is great and very convenient. Brought a big group of us to the Sports Bar... More

The Property is located by a Walmart and many different restaurants. There is dining on-site including evening room-service and the morning breakfast option. Beds are comfortable, A/C system is one that only... More

We were there for a family wedding at a separate location and and the bride and groom blacked out rooms at this hotel. There really was no place for outdoor exercise so I used the gym facility which was small but doable. Everyone except myself enjoyed the breakfast, there was something that the cook used that tasted terrible to me.... More

Second time staying at this hotel. Clean room and bathroom, very affordable. Close to many restaurants, shopping. Favorite amenity is that we Love the 24 hour shuttle to Pocono Downs! Staff very friendly and accommodating. Only thing would like if the bar was open a little later to accommodate guests for a late night drink.

As my title states, this hotel has a great location to all the attractions in this area and easy to get to and from the highways. It's also priced reasonable compared to other hotels in the area and that means a lot when traveling with a budget in mind! The hotel is clean and fairly new but there is room... More

Room was typical for a Hilton. Very nice. Clean. Internet sucked. It was very very very slow. Took forever to load videos and then they'd keep buffering. Made work take much longer than necessary. The little bar/restaurant was nice. Barb the bartender was very nice and personable. Even hooked me up when they didn't have my first 2 choices of... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in Wilkes-Barre PA. It was a wonderful place - and was certainly a credit to the Hilton name. I highly recommend it to anyone staying in the Wilkes-Barre region. It was close to shopping and excellent restaurants.
