“Great Price, Location, and Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Even though this hotel was undergoing renovations I would recommend it. The rooms were a good size, clean and had a balcony. The bathrooms were a little smaller but there was an alcove just outside of the bathroom with a sink and mirror. There is a restaurant onsite but we did not get to try it. You are in walking distance of the park, and many beautiful buildings and churches. I believe on of the buildings was a Mosque but am not 100% sure. All were beautiful. We were only about 10 minutes from the Mohegan Casino and even closer to several restaurants and businesses.

Room Tip: Since there are balconies I would imagine that summer time could get loud. Ask to be away from the p...

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to review your visit with us. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us. We really enjoy our location in downtown Wilkes-Barre as there is so much to see and do. Just a short drive away is even more attractions and shopping. It’s nice having a little bit of everything. Your photographs of the area are beautiful! We hope to see you again soon!

The hotel was neat, nicely decorated and up-to-date. There is a mini fridge, coffee pot, and big screen tv's in each room. There's alos a business station where you can use the computer and printer if needed in the lobby near the front desk. The staff was kind a helpful and the price was extremely reasonable. Great place to stay! The location is great too, it's close to many amenities.

We stay with a small group at Genetti's a couple of times each year on a Sunday evening en route to Vermont. The rooms are always ready for us and the recent redecoration and upgrade of bedding and furnishings is most pleasant. The hotel is a bit hard to find, but well worth the effort. Breakfast is a full hot breakfast with great variety and a pleasant server - just ask if you need something not on the buffet.

While attending the Bloomsburg Fair, we spent two wonderful nights at Genetti's Best Western Hotel. Hotel staff at all levels went out of their way to help me and my wife, who is disabled. When my wife's wheelchair could not go into the dining area, staff immediately set us up in an adjacent room where we enjoyed our breakfasts.

Wonderful hotel in city center of Wilkes Barre. Staff was very helpful at checkin and checkout. Even helped me straighten out a confusing issue with my Best Western Rewards number. Had a wonderful meal in the hotel restaurant Oyster. Efficient waitress and excellent food. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Great value. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.
