“Cool Location and Views w/ some problems”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2006

Despite its problems this is one hotel I truly look forward to visiting.

I plan my trip to go to my favorite minor league ballpark, Lackawanna County Stadium-Home of the AAA Scranton Wilkes-Barre Red Barons. The hotel is situated on big cliff overlooking the ballpark. Some rooms have views of the field! The hotel is located amid the mountainous region of the North East PA. The views are awesome. In addition the hotel is also located near many other family attractions, such as the highly regarded Lackawanna Coal Mine Tour. A large tourist information center is located across the street from the hotel.

If you like to use the pool and fitness center when traveling you can forget about it at this hotel. The Fitness Room is very small and literally during my visit all the equipment (treadmill and weight training machine) were in a state of disrepair. And the water cooler had some foreign objects in it. As for the pool-I'm amazed anyone would even go near it. A pungent nasty odor overcomes you when entering the area and the pool looks dirty. The terrace outside the pool is very nice and supplied with chairs and tables

They have a morning breakfast buffet (which costs about $12)-I would definitely avoid this. The food is cooked poorly and flies and other things are abounded. There is a Mickey D's about 2 miles away.

I've always been satisfied with my room at this hotel. Most have a balcony and even during the hot summer there are cool breeze.

We stayed at the Courtyard Moosic, PA in July 2005. The outside of the hotel appears very nice but once inside it becomes apparent this hotel is in need of a refurbishment to meet Marriott standards.

The hotel staff is extremely helpful and friendly. They all seemed genuinely concerned with making our stay enjoyable.

The problem with this hotel seems to be that it has not been refurbished in quite some time. While we were there, several rooms had gotten flooded. The carpeting was pulled up in the hallway to allow the carpet to dry. This made it difficult to walk to our room and while an inconvience I can certainly understand something like this happening.

The major problem that we saw was the pool area. The walls seem to have some sort of a plastic paneling on them in what seems to be an attempt of a repair. Overall the entire pool area is not up to the quality someone would expect from a Marriott. The water in the jacuzzi while clear had a musty odor to it and the inside of the jacuzzi was stained in a rust color. When using the pool there was a strong odor that smelled like a sewer backup. It seemed to be coming from the drain around the pool but even after calling the front desk this was never repaired and smelled badly the entire time we were there. The odor was not a musty smell like a flooded room but smelled like a backed up sewer.

Overall the hotel is just Ok but not what someone would expect from a Marriott property. There are other hotels in the area I would stay in before this one. Until this property is refurbished I will not be staying here again.
