“Nice place with ammenties”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Only stayed overnight, but the staff was great. Gave us a late check out (we were using the spa though) and were very accomodating overall. Rooms were nice and clean. We stayed in the tower away from the clubs. View out back is over a stream which was great. Being winter it was frozen, but summer I am sure its a beautiful place to sit and relax. Patios and bridges right by it.

Room Tip: Stay in the tower or a room away from the in house clubs as it can get noisy.

We recently stayed at the Woodlands due to a death in the family. We met one of the owners the day we checked in, and told them our situation. Within minutes we were sitting in his office discussing funeral luncheon arrangements. Our family was so grateful to have the luncheon at the Woodlands. The food was excellent, and the service was great! We ended up having more people that had anticipated, but the staff came through without a hitch!

When we had checked in, I was amazed at the coupons that we received. Complimentary breakfast, complimentary drink, and lots of % off coupons for the restaurants. It was a really nice touch!

The property is gorgeous, rooms are very nicely kept, the breakfast buffet was excellent. Overall, a must stay when in that area!

Room Tip: Balcony rooms overlook the property.

We chose to stay at the Woodlands Inn based upon it's proximity to the casino and the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. So glad we did as it exceeded our expectations. The Inn is ideally situated and the views are great. The staff was very accommodating. We opted to dine along the river and the views were spectacular. My wife and I are 'senior' night owls so we especially enjoyed spending time in the lounge. The d.j offered a great selection of music - something for everyone. Our entire stay was very relaxing and we looking forward to returning as soon as the opportunity presents itself. It will give a chance to recoup the monies we lost at the casino!

We stayed three nights and everything was very nice. Great people to deal with. Everything was as advertised and the only caution would be the rooms are a touch on the small side. But there spotlessly clean, great location and we would return in a heartbeat.

This was my second stay at the Woodlands Inn after spending the evening at the Mohegan Sun Casino. I do not live far from Wilkes-Barre (~35 minutes), but it is well worth the money to stay overnight after imbibing in various drinks and getting dropped off at the front of the hotel.
The hotel has a great breakfast - free of charge!!! - and amazing customer service. My boyfriend kept going on about how nice everyone was. This stay was after a mid-January holiday party and we decided to stay the night after our last visit over the 4th of July holiday. We plan on returning to make an nice little "staycation" in the near future. Despite the news of the casino building their own hotel, I will continue to stay a loyal Woodlands patron. Keep up the good work!!

"EXCELLENT" facility

Everything you could ask for ... restaurants, meeting rooms, bars, shuttle to the casino, and did I say restaurants and bars ........ All in the Woodlands

The only drawback is that the rooms are small and have little closet space
It is a perfect facility in every way .... Had a GREAT time there

The staff was pheonominal

This was the 2nd year we went to The Woodlands for their club. Great atmosphere. DJ was good. They have a 2nd bar downstairs for the older crowd, so there is something for all ages. Plan on going back when we go to the poconos area again.
