“Passing Through”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Good hotel with adequate personal anemities for business conferences and family stays. The hotel is within close proximity to the down town core for shopping and other night life extracurricular activities. A cozy little town that makes for a nice break on long trips through the area. Also an interesting history to the area worth reading into.

It was the second time that we stopped at this hotel, The first time we loved it for the quality of services. The room was very clean, comfortable, the dining room is so romantic and the food excellent quality. We enjoyed also the hot breakfast - at 6;30 in the morning, we could have an excellent meal and take the road early . We will come back for sure.

Dear Dominique,

Thank you for your review. We are very happy you returned to our hotel! Our breakfast is a great way to start the day. Our menu changes each daily and we make our pancakes, french toast, cream chipped beef and many other items fresh on site.

We are looking forward to your next visit!

The rooms are clean, the service is very good, and the food is excellant. We attended a wedding here which was very nice, and convient to be able to go straight to our room afterwards. Great idea having a cold bottle of water in the mini frige in the room. It was also great having a discount for our room since we were with a wedding that was held there. Would go back again.

We stopped on our way home from vacation. We used a hotelcoupons.com (green room-saver) coupon for $69 on Sunday night. My wife, 2 children, and I had a great stay. Room was clean, quiet, and very well equipped. Buffet breakfast was A1, many selections. I will return if in the area again.

Stayed here with over 30 family members for three nights for our nieces wedding,
• rooms were great and nothing to complain about in that aspect.
• on Saturday night we and everyone else were awakened numerous times by numerous persons running, screaming,kicking doors - with numerous guest coming out into hall complaining
•instead of throwing people out or calling police the night manager opened up the reception area on first floor which happened to be right out side below our room and let the indoor party antics continue to 6 At which time the reception area was trashed.
•On top of that they gave our nieces honeymoon suite to someone else after it was reserved.
No manager on duty to talk to at checkout.

Dear Andy,

Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. Providing our guests with clean, comfortable, and quiet accommodations is our top priority. Each year we have hundreds of events and groups at our hotel that have a great experience. We regret not moving our nosy guests to an area away from our guest rooms sooner. We have reviewed the information from that evening with our management team to ensure this issue won’t happen again. All of our hotel guests deserve a quiet night’s sleep and should leave refreshed. We would love for you to use the BWR points credited to your account at our hotel to allow us an opportunity to redeem ourselves and provide you with a great experience.

We hope to see you again in the near future.

By chance we stopped at this Best Western on our way to the Poconos. No hotel in our lifetime was as awesome as the Best Western in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Friendly, helpful employees; great room; restaurant in hotel with delicious food! And most important, at least for my husband, the hotel is "motorcycle friendly" with a separate parking garage for the bike.
