“Enjoyable stay with comfortable beds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Returning again this year for the BBC homecoming, it was great to stay at Nichols village. The rooms are spacious and the beds are so comfortable. I sleep just like I was at home. Wonderful breakfast buffet. Pool was open late and early but we did not use it this time. Looking forward to next year's homecoming weekend.

Our final night's stay on our way home from Cape Cod was at Nichols Village Hotel & Spa in Scranton, Pa. - What a lovely hotel! The rooms were spacious, clean, beds were comfortable, the breakfast buffet was very nice with plenty of choices. Our "Welcome Reception" was over and above - cheese & crackers, veggies, beer, wine, etc. - made our 48 passengers feel quite Welcome!! Dinner that evening was tasty - I had the beef, which was very good. The chicken entre was far too small (1/2 a chicken breast, chicken apparently had been dieting!) but the rest of the meal was quite good. Didn't seem to have enough staff to adequately cover our meal - some of our folks complained they did not get coffee when requested (pots on the tables when understaffed, would have worked). We would definitely stay at this property again, all in all, it was quite nice! The morning we left we were given a "kiss off" by the staff . . . a great big bowl of Hershey kisses were passed around on the bus - a very nice touch!!!!

The Nichols Village Inn has easy access on/off the highway, yet is quiet inside. So, we found our room peaceful and quiet. We didn't find any negatives. Positives were: good wireless access in the room, comfortable bed with plenty of pillows, friendly service and competitive pricing. The free breakfast had eggs, bacon, waffles, toast, english muffins and regular muffins, fruit, orange juice, coffee, and cold cereal. So, the selection was pretty good. We'd definitely stay there again.

We stayed at Nichols Village this summer and really appreciated the good value of the hotel at the discounted rate we paid. Yes, it does appear to be an older hotel, but it is still a nice hotel and well maintained. Parking was free and conveniently located, the staff was friendly and helpful, the room was very large, the beds were comfortable, the bathroom was spacious, and everything was acceptably clean. We loved the huge indoor heated pool as a great way to wind down before bed after being on the road all day. Breakfast in the morning was standard continental fare, but better than some free offerings, and the seating area had enough space for everyone. We would definitely stay here again when traveling on I-81 if the price was similar.

My friend and I stayed here two nights (Sept. '12) and it was alright. The rooms were clean and spacious and the hot breakfast was different. The eggs seemed artificial somehow but there was an assortment of bagels and muffins, waffles, cereals, and yogurts. The front desk people were very friendly. The hotel is just yards away from a 4 lane road which I didn't expect and I don't think the rooms were worthy of $135 a night although it was very quiet. We both had massages at their spa and that was awesome.

Room Tip: We were in rooms 151 and 152, which, oddly enough are on the third floor. These were at the end of...

Took a five day/four night trip to the Scranton area with my family. We had a great time at the Inn. The heated pool was very warm and our rooms were outstanding. Special thanks to Kim and Megan for making our trip so special! Breakfast is adequate but the rest of the Inn is great. The kids enjoyed the 24 hour hot cocoa and the fresh baked cookies. The location of the Inn is second to none. It is located near malls and restaurants. We enjoy the proximity to the Waffle House and Sheetz. They do have a spa but we did not partake. This is one of my favorite hotels in the Scranton area and as you can see by my reviews, I do not just give all the hotels great reviews. They have to earn it and the Inn did it again!

This hotel is located on a pretty busy street, and is not at all a "spa-like" hotel as advertised. The property is old and is in need of some upgrading. The beds aren't comfortable at all. We stayed here because it was the hotel reserved for wedding guests, but had we not gone to the wedding, I don't imagine we'd ever choose to stay here. The free breakfast was decent, although we didn't try the eggs since they looked like they were microwaved, and that's just a no-no! There's a newer Hampton Inn right down the road, it's probably in better condition, has a better breakfast, and I assume the rates are comparable.
