We had gone to Pennsylvanis, Lancaster area, while the floors in our house were being stripped and finished. When we found out we needed to stay away for an additional night, we went looking for a place to stay in the Pocono area, which my wife had wanted to see. We found the Econo Lodge Arena in Wilkes-Barre and were... More

One of the cleanest hotels I've stayed in! The "pet room" was not carpeted but had a wood-look tile that was very clean and much better for cleanliness. The staff was very friendly, and they welcomed my pet with Milk Bones. The pet area outside is well lit and very clean, with a garbage can and green bags available to... More

I honestly didn't know what to expect, but the hotel was great! It was about 20 minutes from whitewater challengers (also very awesome). From check-in, to being provided maps and ideas for other things to do, to check-out, our stay exceeded expectations. It was very clean, quiet, and the staff could not have been friendlier. We were also surprised the... More

This was our 3rd visit to this hotel. Spent one night here on a long car trip. It was fine. Our "dog" room had some kind of hard flooring wich works well with dogs. Non-dog rooms have carpet. Nothing fancy but room was clean, no pet odors at all, and the price was right. Soft towels and decent toilet paper.... More

We always stop at the Econo Lodge on our way to Upstate New York. It is right off Interstate 81 and in close proximity to Mohegan Sun. We always find the rooms to be clean and the staff to be exceptionally friendly and helpful. One thing that was missing from the trip, however, was the outstanding complimentary breakfast that has...

Again we were delighted to find a clean well kept hotel. Our room was great. Nice and clean and a comfortable bed. We hiked at Rickets glen all day Saturday... More

The Econo Lodge Arena is probably the “cleanest” cheap place to stay if you have to stay overnight in the Wilkes-Barre area. There is quick access to I-81. Amenities are scarce and of poor quality, so bring your own toiletries. There is a small refrigerator and a microwave on top of it which is nice especially if traveling with small... More

Great hotel right off the highway in this area. We just needed a quick overnight on our way to Maine from Ohio and this fit for location and value. The property was very clean and had all the amenities we needed including breakfast offerings. Would stay here again.

I can highly recommend this hotel if your travels take you to the Wilkes Barre area. Great customer service from the time we arrived to our departure. From allowing us an early check-in, by arranging a new room, to addressing all of our needs, the front end staff did a superior job. Room was spacious, with coffee pot, microwave and... More

I stayed in two Econolodges last week, this one in Wilkes-Barre, and another one in South Carolina. I am glad to say, this one was very nice. Clean, close to a decent restaurant, good location, reasonable price.
