We were only passing through the area, so we were really only here to sleep, but it was comfortable; the room was clean, beds were good, bathroom was decent. They called us to make sure our room was satisfactory. There only thing we could find wrong was there was no coffee pot in the room.

Good value for the money. Comfortable quiet room. Take Exit One off local road off I-81. Though the motel does not offer breakfast, there are restaurants to the right at the foot of the hill entrance. I arrived after 8 PM and ate and got gas at the nearby Sheetz. Well maintained older motel in $80 price range - less... More

Friendly staff. Check-in was smooth and fast. Room had a sticker on the door saying 100% smoke free but there was a bud under one of the beds. On the whole the room was clean, especially in the visible places but out of sight places were a little neglected. There was a lift in the middle of the building which... More

Great place for tired travelers and pets. Room was clean, comfortable, and a pleasure to find. Stayed with 2 golden retrievers. Many dining choices near by. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Would definitely recommend and plan to stay again.

We stay here regularly for work travel. Julie, Patti, and Jennifer at the desk are awesome!! They all have been there for a long time which is a sign of a well run business being a business owner myself. The owner John runs his property very well. It's a great value as well. Thanks! Brad

I travel a lot and have stayed at a wide variety of hotels, including other Red Roof Inns. This inn is well located right off I81. I was not expecting much from a budget motel other than a safe, convenient and clean place for my family to sleep on a road trip. This Red Roof Inn does not meet those... More

I rediscovered Red Roof Inn when my husband and I did a road trip back in December around North Carolina. I love that they've moved to all hard wood floors - hotel carpets are so nasty no matter how much they are cleaned. We just stayed at this Red Roof for a night and it is a great value, clean,...

We were passing through the area on our way to Maine wig our two dogs. We were thrilled to find this property that allowed our doggies to stay for free! Jenn, Luisa,and everyone were super friendly and the room and property were spotless and newly renovated. We will definitely start start staying at Red Roof Inns after this delightful stay!!

You want a cheap place to stay if your travels bring you to Wilkes Barre? You need to sleep and shower and don't plan on hanging out in a hotel room? This will fit the bill. It's not a dump and it's not a Hyatt. It's a cheap, safe, relatively clean place to crash, shower and go. It fits that... More
