4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here on our way to the East Coast. The staff was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast had a nice selection and the man who was running the breakfast room bent over backwards to make sure it was kept well stocked and clean. My one and only complaint was the hotel room was so small that there wasn't... More

Stayed one night on April 12, 2015. I'll start with the positive: Hotel looks fairly new. Rooms were spacious and clean, and included both a mini-fridge and microwave. The breakfast, which is included in the room charge, is your standard fare for a Holiday Inn Express with a good variety of hot and cold food. The negatives: In our room,... More

Place was very clean and the staff were polite. We were there with my brother in law visiting family. And the view from our room was breathtaking beautiful. I would recommend staying here even if it's for a night.

This would be just another HI Express with good-sized clean rooms, good beds, ample free parking and decent free breakfast to get you started in the morning if not for the location. The hotel is situated on a hilltop next to I-81 and, although it is clearly visible from the highway, you need to navigate some twisting roads and made... More

We stayed one night during the holiday weekend. We booked online smoothly, once we arrived at the hotel we were warmly greeted by the desk clerk. Our room was clean, and comfortable. We did take advantage of the pool and hot tub the next morning, which was also clean and temperature were perfect. Breakfast was more than the normal waffles... More

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.
