The other reviews are extremely accurate, minus the ones clearly written by the hotel's management. Smell was overwhelming. Far from a safe environment with no lighting and no security. Door felt like a three year old could kick it open and one probably did. Punch holes in the doors. The only exterior door that's every locked is apparently to the... More

Overnight stay on our way to Maine. There was a winter storm and didn't want to cross the poconos in the dark with the snow. So this was a last minute decision. Used my smart phone to find the nearest and cheapest. Check in was fast and efficient I did not have a reservation. Hallways were somewhat dark easily noticed... More

I usually don't write reviews but this was one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed at. The price was cheap but it was a big mistake. When I entered the hotel the smell was horrible. I climbed the stairs to a dark hallway with carpeting from the 70's. The room smelled like disinfectant. The bedspread had tons of burn... More

We pulled in past midnight since we thought it must be cheap. First off it waws not that cheap and then I was sleeping on a rock hard beds for rest of the nights. This was not a corporate trip and money was my own, so I kept quiet and spent the night anyways. I regretted it so much that... More

For such an inexpensive rate I was a bit nervous....but it's a good place! Exceeded my expectations! Clean, king bed, fridge, microwave, flat-screen tv, free continental breakfast, staff was friendly & helpful. We would def return! Great value for the price paid!

Booked this as a "secret hotel" for a low price on Travelocity...when the hotel name was revealed, I thought it would be okay, since EconoLodge has usually been so in the past, though I was very upset that my "secret" low rate was only 2 dollars less than the hotel's actual, published rates...I feel cheated. The hotel itself is pretty... More

On my way through Scranton, PA I decided to look up any hotel that was close and reasonable in price. Tired and weary from a long trip, I found the first available hotel at this location and plugged it into my GPS. My first red flag was when the directions took my off the beaten path to a location where... More

Stayed here in 2012 on a stopover en route to New Hampshire. Located off of I-81, a little hard to find for me, the streets weren't that great and you cant see the sign from a distance. Typical budget motel, safe location and helpful staff. Would consider staying here again in the future. Comfortable beds and a clean room.

Reserved room online. Hotel hidden in odd location. Strong smell of deodorizer everywhere. What are they hiding? Threadbare towels. Breakfast of watered down juice and offbrand cereal labeled as name brand. (My husband has eaten enough cheerios to know real from a knockoff). Coffee terrible. If we could have changed hotels without cost we would have. We heard this hotel... More
