The Fairfield Inn in Wilkes-Barre is a new style Fairfield Inn. The lobby is nice and has a large area for breakfast,
The room is a decent sized and was clean.
The pool is nice and includes two small hot tubs (one which was under repair). There is also a decent gym.
My big complaint with the hotel was the included breakfast. It goes to 10am on weekends. My family went down to eat a little after 9am and found they were out out of many items. We asked for bagels or English muffins and told they were out of them. We also asked if there was more sausage and was told they were out of that too. Figuring they knew the hotel was almost sold out, they should have had enough food. They later found some in a different hotel and it was greasy and did not taste good. They have replace the waffle makers with eggs. The eggs taste a lot better than they look. However, if you don't eat eggs, there was a small selection. They were also missing breakfast sandwiches which other Fairfield Inns have. The woman running the breakfast tried to make everything work but could not create food if they didn't have it.
The other issue with the hotel is parking. The same people own the Fairfield along with a Comfort and a Host Inn. The 3 hotels are in a row and parking gets limited at night. We needed to park in the end of Friday's lot.
A future worry is that the same people own these three hotels. The Comfort looks very run down. I hope the Fairfield Inn won't get that way.
