“Nice home away from home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

Once you find this hotel you'll be glad you did! It's tucked away on a hill but close to all the shopping as well as one mile from the casino and close to the arena as well. Rooms are well equipped and I have had two separate stays here of about 4 months each. I cannot say enough about the staff and how friendly and helpful they are! Tom, Bonnie, Kaitlin, Mark, are wonderful and Tracey and Dawn in housekeeping made sure we had everything we needed. Others were wonderful too but I didn't catch all their names. The bottom line is this hotel has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Lots of parking and a coffee/muffin bar for breakfast. Laundry and exercise room on site. If I had a negative it would be laundry area could be bigger but it's adequate. I will definitely be back when I'm in the area again.

Thank you so much for the very kind and generous review. The staff and management of this hotel was so happy to have you as our guest. It was truly our pleasure. Sometimes, the hardest thing about this business is to see our guests say goodbye.

We all look forward to seeing you and yours back with us again.

I have stayed at this hotel multiple times and have never had a bad stay. The staff is always warm and welcoming. It's nice to be greeted with a smile even if you're only walking through the lobby. Among all the usual amenities, nice sized rooms, clean bathrooms, complete kitchenette, I really like the AC/heating system. It's controlled by a thermostat on the wall, allowing you to set the temp where you like it. When you've stayed in a room heated by a roaring over-sized hair drier that only has low and high settings you appreciate this.

It's also nice in the spring/fall that they actually have windows that open!

Tom and his crew do a wonderful job at making your stay a pleasant one!

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the hotel face away from the interstate.

What can I say that hasn't already been said? If you are up in the Wilkes-Barre area for a while and looking for a great place to stay, choose here! The people who work here are AWESOME!!!! Helpful, caring and quick to answer any question or give you clean towels, dish detergent or coffee packets with a smile! (and they're not creepy and spying like some long-term stay hotels I've stayed at)

The hotel is clean and easily accessible to shopping and the highway. The continental breakfast with coffee in the morning is a nice perk along with an assortment of DVD movies you can borrow available at the front desk (which I have taken advantage of quite frequently). Flat screen TV and DVD players in the rooms! It has made our stay here feel like "a home away from home."

Don't worry if you are looking for a place to stay with a pool, because the hotel next door has a pool you can use for a day rate!! And there is a trail you can hike located off the parking lot along with a barbeque area with a gazebo/picnic furniture and an area to walk your pet AND your pets can stay here too!!! I could not be happier with choosing to stay here. :)

If you like all the comforts of home without the work, Extended Stay hotel in Wilkes-barre is where you want to be. After having been here for months, I consider this my home away from home. I could stay anywhere but this is where I choose to remain.
What I've liked the most is an o stall feelingof unpretentiousness. From the simple, no foo-foo decor to the genuinely caring staff, the atmosphere is one of comfort and familiarity.
Its hard to find, in any service-oriented business, a staff that is either not put off by a request and are overly friendly. Sometimes staff are lacking in concern or just simply cannot meet your needs. Not so here. Any requests have been met with the staff's desire to fill them, promptly and cheerfully. What's unusual is to get this response from any given employee of this committed staff. Excellent device is the norm here.
My room is comfortable, clean and quiet. If there is a guest next door, im usually unaware of it. Having a mini-kitchen keeps in step with that homey feeling. Although, I would rather forgo the provided dishwasher for an oven. Everything I need is here- no daily chore in the search for eating costly, hum drum restaurant food. This also reduces expenses. Add that to already reasonable rates and you've got an excellent value! The mattress is not as comfortable as it could be but current ongoing renovations may change that. My room had not yet undergone updating. It didn't really seem to need it. There was not much evidence of wear and tear.
The location of this Extended Stay was a little tricky to find. But what opened up, at the top of the hill, was a gorgeous view overlooking the valley of Wilkes-barre.
This is a pet-friendly hotel. Which, as an animal lover, I know can be a challenge to find. My normal travels are usually a compromise of having to stay at a low-budget motel that has a number in the name of its title. This time there is no compromise. I get my clean comfort, caring staff, as well as the companionship of my four-legged friend.
At first glance, I didn't see the" friendly" in pet-friendly. The location is surrounded by asphalt parking- which is ample, even large enough for tractor trailers. An elimination area is provided but small. There is also an area to socialize protected from the elements by a gazebo complete with barbecuing.
This next feature is a big one for me. The adjoining property is about a 5 acre rolling, wooded area complete with a flowing river and wildlife. A path has been provided making for easy hiking. It took me a while to realize this natural beauty was there and available to me. There is no sign marking the trail nor was it verbally communicated to me.
Its easy for me to say that my visit to the Extended Stay Deluxe hotel in Wilkes-barre, P.A has been, in all categories, an excellent experience and I highly recommend a stay here!

We travel a lot and being made to feel at home is very important to us as well as the service we receive from the front desk and house keeping. The front desk staff are very helpful and friendly and always greet us with a smile. We have been here for 3 weeks and plan to stay here through December while my husband is working in this area. Our room has everything we need for our stay away from home. I love that I can cook daily and not have to go out to eat everyday. It is also great to have bedroom separate from the living and kitchen area and is set up like an apartment. Microwave, DVD player are included. I would recommend Wilkes Barre Extended Stay Deluxe and will look for other Extended Stays when we travel. Locate close to shopping and restaurants. Also has a gazebo and BBQ area for guest.

The staff here is excellent. The hotel itself is tucked away on a hill overlooking the surrounding area. The rooms and hotel itself are very clean. And unlike most long stay hotels I've stayed in the past they include a gym and LONG continental breakfast between 4 and 10 am. I very much enjoyed my stay here.

Room Tip: Even numbered rooms face the highway, it's is unnoticeable with the windows shut but if you enjo...

After reading reviews, we hesitantly decided to try it. Was very impressed upon entering the room. It is a suite in that there is a full kitchen with dishes and cookware, Sofa and chair, a large desk with a computer chair on each side but all in one room. This was located close to the interstate and was in an area where there was much available (shopping and restaurants). The room was very clean. They are not equipped to provide breakfast, but do offer some Otis Spunkmeyer single wrapped muffins and bagels and some fresh fruit and coffee. They offer ammenities such as a shaver, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste at no extra cost. There is soap, shampoo and hairdryer. We were happy with our overnigh stay.
