We needed a place to stay close to the Horse Track / Casino. I found good reviews about the Holiday Inn and they had a shuttle to the casino. A free shuttle! I made reservations for 4 rooms about 2 months in advance. 3 Days before we left, I received an email saying they cant wait to welcome us soon... More

Located close by the casino/racetrack in the Poconos. Clean and comfortable. Quiet rooms. Perfect for our stay. They have taxi service. We used this several times, didnt want to drink and drive. I highly recommend this hotel rather than the casino hotel, much more reasonable pricewise.

This HIE has a good vibe. It's up a winding hill road removed from any highway noise. The staff was very friendly and they offer free cookies, which all hotels should do if they want to make me happy. It is within minutes of 24 hour diners, decent restaurants, and shopping. The room came with a charming little bathroom featuring... More

Easy to get to. Near Mohegan Sun Pocono Downs. Reasonably priced. decent breakfast, coffee was pretty good. Rooms were clean and bed was very comfortable. I gave it 4 out of 5 only because walls and floors do not block sound well. Was awaken at 4am thinking there was running water in the bathroom or something could be leaking. Nope... More

Thank you, Holiday Inn Express. The hotel is clean (love the lobby scent) and the front desk was friendly, welcoming, informative and helpful. (Happy employees is a great reflection on any establishment.) The room was perfect for our overnight stay in Wilkes Barre. Well-designed and thank you for having something as simple as great reading lights by the bed.

I was only only for here for a quick overnight business trip, but the staff was very courteous and the room was fine. They have very reasonable rates for business travelers and a nice buffet breakfast.

Myself and friends spent Saturday night at this hotel, we originally planned the hotel at Mohegan Sun but their rates were ridiculous. Holiday Inn had very reasonable rates but the reason our next trip will be staying here again was the staff. When we first walked in we were greeted very nice with the front desk woman behind the counter,... More
