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.
