“One of cleanest, nicest hotels I've stayed at”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I've stayed in tons of hotels, from the highest, high end (Waldorf Astoria), Westins, Hiltons, to more moderate Marriotts and Holiday Inns, but I have to say....this Hampton Inn really impressed me. Best of all, it was one of the cleanest hotels I've ever stayed at...not a stain, scratch, fingerprint smudge, in sight. The rooms are large and nicely decorated, the staff is super nice, and the free breakfast is a great treat. I always stay at this hotel when I travel to Wilkes Barre for business, and I can always count on its consistent quality.

Stayed here for three nights recently on business. Large rooms. Very comfortable bedding. Location is great - very close to restaurants, and conveniences like Target, Wal-Mart, etc. Nearby restaurant choices range from amazing independent Italian to drive through fast food. Very close to interstate and to downtown. Hotel is crowded - very full - but yet not noisy. Breakfast very so, so. But coffee is great! No special anything for being Hilton Honors club member though - that sort of surprised me. When I travel to the other properties, I'm always greeted with goody bags or fruit baskets.

Typical property in this line. Nice service, clean rooms with basic amenities. We did have an incident with some highly loud neighbors at three in the AM. After talking with front desk staff, and told of their no knock policy even for disturbances, I was furious, but upon contacting the corporate office, my bill was fully refunded. Next time, I'll just call the police for disturbing the peace.

The staff went above and beyond by helping us navigate the area and we were very appreciative! Hotel was extremely clean, cozy, and comfy. Very kid friendly! Thanks for the delicious complimentary breakfast. Will definately stay again!

I like Hampton Inns because they are reliably the same in nearly every location. They offer a good value and are bland but predictable in a good way. This is the second time we have stayed at this property and it is a safe bet. Rooms are clean although sinks and countertops are a bit high for shorter people. Fresh duvets with each guest change and a hot breakfast. Great value. It is located down the street from a sister propert, the Hilton Garden. Both are about the same. NHampton is on a hill further away from the roads and the Garden is walking distance to Walmart.

We flew into PHL airport for a Thanksgiving week with family. We arrived in Philly at midnight and still had a ways to drive. We were finally so exhausted and phoned the Hampton Inn at about 3:00 a.m. to find out about room availability, cost, etc. We were quoted a price of $125 and with AARP were told we would get a discount. When we got to the hotel about 15 minutes after our phone call, we were advised that the rate had now gone up to $156.00. What????? In 15 minutes we had that type of price increase? We explained to the hotel clerk that we were only going to be sleeping for a short time because we had an appointment the next morning at 9:30 a.m. in a location about 45 minutes away. Why would the rates go up so quickly? It took quite a bit of time (which we did not appreciate since we were so tired) and we finally got to sleep at 4 a.m. The next morning we were pleased to see that we were only charged the initial rate quoted. We did complain to the manager about our horrible experience at check in. She apologized and explained that this employee we had dealt with tended to get a bit rattled. It was probably the worst welcome we had ever rec'd at any Hilton facility. Otherwise, the rooms were wonderful and clean and the breakfast was excellent.

I chose this hotel for a quick stopover on our way to NYC. I had HHonors points to use and always like to choose a newer property in the area I am visiting. This fit the bill. Very new and clean! Rooms were spacious yet cozy and comfortable. Close enough to the Mohegan Sun casino and convenient to the highway heading east to the city.
