This was another clean and quite Holiday Inn Express I stayed on during a business trip. My room was clean, spacious and quite. Rooms at the back of the hotel face a wooded hill with no view or noise. Breakfast was fresh and tasty! I will stay here again on my next trip.

If you like to crawl under a desk that barely fits between the bed and wall to plug in your laptop, this place is for you. Very musty smelling and noisy refrigerator will cause you not to get the best restful night. The breakfast was nice and the front desk person during the day was very pleasant. The sink dripped...

I called to find if rooms were available and would they honor a "room saver" coupon. The desk person(Louis) I believe this was his name, had a attitude from the start.

When I want to go to Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, I always stay at the Holiday Inn Express. In about 12 stays, there was only one issue that I encountered and it was quickly resolved. The exterior and interior is always in good shape. There are always cookies at the front desk and free coffee all day. Breakfast is... More

It's a nice property with a friendly staff. A bonus is the free shuttle to local restaurants and such. The limitations for business travelers are, limited electrical outlets at the desk and bedside tables.

This was our second overnight to Wilkes-Barre in as many weeks; and, we once again chose the Holiday Inn Express on Route 315. It is a slightly above-average hotel in this bustling city. Set just off one of the main thoroughfares, is convenient to dozens of stores, restaurants, and entertainment options. High points would be: the attentive and friendly service... More

Nothing to right home about. Hard to find, maybe the roads have recently changed. In need of renovations. Main hall carpets are worn. The room was clean but nothing exceptional. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good.
