Traveling with a pet can be an eye opener. I know for a fact that we have been relegated to a few stinky back, often shoddy, rooms that many of these places have set aside for people with pets. Then they have the nerve to charge an additional fee. Really irritating. I also know for a fact that my pooch... More

Picked this hotel because of the many good reviews found on Tripadvisor, and I wasn't disappointed. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Plus, you get 10% off at the Perkins Restaurant right in front of the hotel by showing your room key, which was also very good. I'd definitely stay again.

Stayed here while passing through. Asked for a quiet room and was placed on the top floor which is half non smoking half smoking...but what non smoker wants to share with smokers? Alas despite the smokey hallway the room smelled fresh. Other guests were loud in the hallway throughout this saturday night. Earplugs recommended. In the morning the shower refused... More

Okay, so I was a tad worried after booking this hotel. Overall the reviews are positive. I'm a loyal Choice Hotels customer but my last CH stay(at the HORRIBLE Roadway Inn in Allentown PA) had me nervous about future CH properties that seemed too cheap to be okay. The Econo Lodge Arena in Wilkes-Barre, PA is outstanding! So happy with... More

My first review and a long overdue one. Stayed here with my wife and in-laws in June of 2013 when we did our trip across PA, NY and DC. The rooms are very clean, staff helpful and the breakfast fresh. An awesome deal for the price!

Can this place get any better?! For the same low price, they've now added even more to the breakfast. This weekend, they were serving scrambled eggs, sausage patties and hot oatmeal with all the fixings. This is on top of what they've already been serving. This place is an incredible bargain. The only reason why I've knocked it down from... More

Econo Lodge is clean and comfortable. It is easy access to the highway and has plenty of amenities nearby. We found the staff to be helpful and courteous. This was our 2nd time there and we will stay there again.

Between the location of the hotel and the am entities included, there is no doubt that you are getting your money's worth. We had a slight problem with some loud guests down the hall but management took care of the problem in a timely, professional manor. Overall we enjoyed our stay and plan on going back on our next trips.

When staying at a motel with the name "econo" in the title, you do not expect a first class property. Nevertheless, this hotel gave great value for the money. As all I wanted was a clean room for a stop-over enroute, this motel served the purpose very well. Surprisingly, the breakfast included eggs and sausage as well as oat meal... More
