However, our room left for some wanting. There was wallpaper falling off of the walls and the bathroom is in need of a make over....

Called a few hotels looking to check pricing (beyond standard online searches), and this seemed like the best deal when traveling with a pet. They already have different pricing for pet friendly rooms vs not, and I was sent a confirmation for that higher priced room, after I'd made it very clear we were in fact bringing a pet. There's...

Dear Swissmix32: Thank you for sharing your experience regarding your recent stay. My apologies if you're confused about the pricing. The pet fee is a one-time fee of $30.00 plus room and tax. I hope this doesn't deter you from a return trip. Thank you, Ross Kornfeld

We came to see the Trans Siberian Orchestra at the Mohegan Sun arena and i looked online for a place nearby to stay. I picked Woodland Inn due to close proximity, and reasonable price. We were given a Creekside room on the second floor. Very clean, nice view. The decour is a bit vintage and low key and I loved...

I visit Wilkes Barre once or twice a year at most and this is the first time I've stayed at this hotel. Upon checking in you get the essence that you have stepped back into the 1980's. This style of hotel is lost in this generation, Rustic with multiple venues for entertainment from nightclubbing to outdoor entertaining. The place is...

So, I think I notice things more now that I watch the show Hotel Impossible regularly. This hotel did everything right. Staff was very friendly, from front desk to cleaning crew. Rooms were very clean and modern. Lobby was nice, as were restaurants. Really enjoyed the happy hour at the hotel bar, and the free shuttle to casino. Well done!!...

The hotel had a very nice atmosphere to it, with many amenities without having to go somewhere else. The hotel had many restaurant options and was very good to include giving you a free breakfast voucher per stay.
