“My best western accommodations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

The hotel met our needs as we have a college student in the area. The elevators were on the slow side and air conditioner did't cool the room that well. The hotel was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was great!!

Dear John,
Thank you for your review. We are happy that you chose our hotel while visiting Wilkes-Barre. Our hotel has made many improvements over the last few years. Our housekeeping and breakfast are two areas that we have really put a lot of effort in. Our staff will be happy to know you enjoyed these aspects of your stay. I have notified our maintenance staff to inspect your PTAC unit to ensure it is operating properly. I hope your family is enjoying the college experience in Wilkes-Barre.

I had a good and bad experience with my stay here. My room was not cleaned one day, but the front desk clerk at the time was very helpful and apologetic. The second issue was during my check out, the clerk was very rude when I asked for my receipt. She told me it would be 15 minutes before I could get my receipt. It was 3:30 in the morning. No one was there, but she didn't want to help me.

The staff and facility are first rate. Absolutely the finest Best Western I ever stayed at in my travels. Rooms are very clean and perfectly maintained. The staff is welcoming and very helpful. I highly recommend staying with them whether business or personal.

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.

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.
