Spent 6 nights at this hotel and it was priced reasonably, the breakfast choices were ample: eggs, bagels (2 kinds), toast (wheat and raisin), little muffins, cereals (3), milk, yoghurt, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, DIY pancakes, sausage patties, hard boiled eggs, cream cheese and jelly. My room and the lobby were clean, nicely maintained, in good condition, the front desk... More

Another great stay at this Econo Lodge in Wilkes-Barre, PA. This is my second stay at this particular Econo Lodge and it was as good as the first time. (One of the most super clean motel rooms I've ever had). When I find a really clean and good place to stay, I remember those places and try to stay when... More

We stayed overnight while traveling through the northeast this fall. We found this hotel right off of Interstate 81...it is easy to get off/on while traveling. They have a complimentary breakfast which we didn't take advantage of during our stay. There is a Perkins Restaurant right out the front door of the property so that was hard to resist. This... More

We had read the great Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed: large clean comfortable quiet room, flat screen with tons of channels, lots of hot water and water pressure in the shower, good breakfast, friendly staff. Fridge and microwave, close to grocery stores and other shopping, easy off-on the interstate. We would definitely stay here again.

From the moment you walk through the front door and see the awards posted you know it is gonna be good. It was. We stayed 2 nights.

Our tour group stayed in this EconoLodge during our recent trip to NYC. This place was by far the cleanest, nicest, and most accommodating place we stayed during the entire trip.

Nice place to stay, very close to interstate 81. Clean main room and bathroom. Comfortable beds with lots of pillows. Heating/AC controls very easy to use. The breakfast was very good and refilled on a regular basis so the selection was good. I would recommend a stay if you are looking for a place in the Wilkes-Barre area.

Everything I'd read about EconoLodge was true, right down to the terrific friendly front counter staff. They're fast, efficient and helpful. The rooms are clean, roomy and the beds firm and comfortable. The bathrooms were modern. It is a tad worn, but it's good value. I'd have given them five stars were it not for the poor service we encountered... More

Our old Clarion "go to" in Scranton is now a no dog Sheraton. Fortunately this motel accepts pets. Rooms were clean and comfortable, good beds and the bathrooms are modern. Well priced. Service was great
