I stayed here on a Thursday night during July 2014, on a trip North to the mountains in NY. It was nice, very quiet on a Thursday. And Pet Friendly! They have a nice restaurant with room service and very friendly staff on hand. Nice pool out back with chairs and lounges to enjoy it. The room was nice and... More

I have stayed here several times and the rooms are always clean, the desk very well-staffed, and everyone in general friendly and VERY helpful.The Oyster Bar lounge and the outdoor pool area are great. Highly recommended if you are in the Wilkes-Barre or Scranton area!

Hard to find parking just to check in. There is a bar in the front entrance and I believe the very limited parking was taking up by bar patrons who were all parked in the 15min parking to avoid the 4$ parking charge as there was no one else checking in. The building is old and lobby had an odd... More

We arrived in a raging thunderstorm, and found the parking out front for unloading had only a small overhang next to the building, so got rained on while unloading. The hotel is in downtown Wilkes-Barre, and offers convenient free parking for guests. The lobby smelled of some kind of cleaner or air "freshener," but it was attractive and comfortable. Check-in...

We have stayed at this Genetti Hotel in WB for several decades when visiting family and friends in that area. The recent improvements to the common areas and guests rooms were a very pleasant addition to the hotel. We look forward to visiting WB again in the not-too-distant future and will again be staying at this hotel. Bob and Carol... More

This place was fine for a night and an option different than the off-the-highway mall world hotels. The desk clerk directed us to a nearby restaurant we could walk to which was fine. Later we got a bit creeped out walking the dogs outside of the hotel grounds. The pretty little park has become the homeless hangout and we were... More

This establishment is a little bit of a time warp but I could fault nothing. Check-in was very efficient and the receptionist lady was very friendly and helpful. Car parking is through a boom gate to the rear car-park and there was excellent parking with easy access to the lobby. We had room on third floor and there are 2... More

OMG Simone A @ the front desk was like a guardian angel in my time of need. She gave me a great room at a great rate and a lot of encouraging words that gave me peace of mind through the night. This woman is a true gem at this property. This property is very nice. The rooms are wonderful... More
