My husband and I stayed for one night at this hotel (we were attending a wedding in the area). Basically, picked it off a list of hotels - did not know what to expect. The hotel is situated right next to another hotel at the top of a hill (great view of the area below). Short drive to a nice... More

Great hotel, met some great people at the outside patio. I thought the prices at bar were alittle high, but maybe they were normal for area. Very clean and comfortable. Quick and easy check-in/check-out.

Great experience from check-in to checkout. Front desk staff is top notch. Our room was comfortable and clean. My only complaint would be that the bed was kind of lumpy and uncomfortable. Our girls enjoyed the pool. Breakfast was plentiful and better than I expected. They have yummy cinnamon rolls! I would stay here again.

I just wanted to tip my hat to the receptionist Rosemarie. I had lost quite a bit of faith in holiday inn after a rough stay in Chattanooga. Her kindness,consideration, and giving nature has renewed my faith in a good hotel. Thanks Rosemarie!

I stay here often and my experience is always very pleasant. When I am in town, I stay here because the staff are great and the front desk was very accommodating. Amanda [or maybe Samantha] was very helpful. She took her time giving me advice on places to visit and eat while in town --- like a world class concierge.... More

We went to Wilkes-Barre for the Nascar race weekend. The hotel is close, convenient and centrally located. Its close to a casino, entertainment venue, shopping and dining. The staff was friendly and courteous. The rooms were clean and neat, (they did not service our room the first night but the houseman came up to refresh it later).

Exactly what I'd expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Not fancy but it was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Same well stocked breakfast items as any other Holiday Inn Express. Well designed for travellers stopping for the night. This one is easy to find just off I-81.
