The staff were great! Very welcoming and helpful. I was traveling with a cooler and needed to refreeze a jug of ice. They gladly put it in a freezer for me. The free breakfast was good but had limited hot items. The one annoying thing: they have what must me energy-saving light switches installed. The light switches have LEDs in... More

I've written about this place for years, and keep thinking there is nothing left to review of this top-notch property. I won't repeat all that's great about this place, but because there is yet another improvement over my last visit, I thought I would add it. Besides the continuing free Wi-Fi, they now have several USB ports in the rooms... More

The place is spotless. They included a survey in the room about the room's cleanliness, requesting I fill it out. My room was a king size bed, non smoking for $64.00. It had a microwave and a fridge. Plenty of fast food or sit down restaurants close by. Breakfast is available in the morning. I grabbed some hot coffee and... More

I spent a few nights at the Econo Lodge Arena. Everything went well and I will stay there again when I am in the area. The staff was friendly and helpful. Price was just right for this economically focused traveler.

I would stay at this hotel again. Staff was great, from check in to check out, they were very accomodating. The price was reasonable. The rooms were clean. If you are that in Wilkes Barre to visit, or traveling through on Interstate 81, I would highly recommend this place.

This hotel is conveniently located right near 81. Room was clean, staff was great, overall it was a fine stay. We usually stay at Comfort Inn and was a little disappointed with breakfast choices at Econo Lodge. Just some cereal, toast, yogurt. Nothing hot nor did they have bagels, danish, cream cheese, assorted fruit.. We stayed at this hotel one... More

This is the second time staying there. Was pleased with our accomodations, the staff and location. Room was quiet and clean. Hotel is close to restaurants and a few shopping malls. I wish that they offered waffles or pancakes at breakfast. Hot water was tepid and juices were not cold.

My husband and I stayed two nights at this hotel with our small dog. I'm somewhat of a hotel snob and had always envisioned Econo Lodges to be ones to avoid - expecting see-through towels, disrepair, and questionable housekeeping. This was a last-minute weekend trip and the reviews on TripAdvisor drew me in. I was pleasantly surprised to see that... More
