I have been staying at the Woodlands for the last two years. I have stayed on average 20 - 30 times per year. My son attends a local college in Wilkes Barre and plays a sport and I also attend CPE classes that use the Grand Ballroom at the hotel so this is very convenient.
When I was first traveling to the area I tried different hotels in the area until I found The Woodlands. Since my first stay there I have not gone back to any of the others. This hotel is by far the best in the area. The rooms are clean and comfortable, food at the restaurants is excellent, they have an indoor and outdoor pool, fitness club and 17,000 gallon jacuzzi. Outdoor patio deck and bar is nice in the spring and summer and they also have a nightclub which is open on weekends. Also it is close to the casino with complimentary shuttle service.
But in my opinion the best feature is the staff!! The owners are hands on, Rick, Ross & Mitch have always been available and can be seen around the hotel (not sitting behind closed doors). The rest of the staff (and I won't mention names as to not leave anyone out, but they are all great) from the front desk, sales office, restaurant staff, bartenders, shuttle drivers, security, maintainance crew, and housekeeping are all top notch and friendly. With all the hotels in the area my family and I would not have 50 plus stays at The Woodlandds Inn if not completely satisfied!! And we will continue to stay there as our son completes his schooling!!
