Upon entering the lobby,I was greeted by a hearty hello and welcome to the Econo Lodge.After that it gets even better.Room size was very good,bed was more than comfy,TV channel selection was more than adequate,pillows were not flat and the in-room,fridge and microwave worked rather well.
The heater did a very good job of warming the room with hardly any excessive noises at all.
Toilet and shower are divided from the washing sink,but the shower water was very hot with a lot of pressure.
Plenty of parking close to an entrance and quite a few selections for food or refueling.
Abundance of shopping within 3 miles of the place and if you enjoy hockey,the Wilkes-Barre Penguins are only about 2 miles away.Mohegan Sun Casino is about a 6 mile drive.
It's located right off of Int 81 and easy to find.
Breakfast area had a TV to watch while eating a multitude of items offered.Eggs,sausage,toast,oatmeal (already made),cereal,fruit,coffee,tea,yogurt,waffles and a few more things available.
Only real drawback was the speed of the elevator,but steps are smartly located.
A goodbye and thank upon my departure,made my stay a rather enjoyable and trouble-free time well spent.
