From the friendly Front Desk staff to the fresh fruit available all day, clean down pillows and comforters and spotless room, I was overly impressed with this Comfort Inn.
We stayed for a weekend during the AMSOIL Arenacross race, which was on Saturday. We checked in Friday evening, unsure of what the area had to offer aside from the upcoming dirtbike race. After a quiet, peaceful night in our room, we ventured out early Saturday to expore.
Note: If you head into town, be prepared to sit at red light after red light after red light after......
We came across a family operated diner, S&W, with great breakfast and a staff that made us feel right at home.
We headed back to our hotel for a nap (hey, we're on vacation right), then ran up the road to find the massive "PIEROGI" sign we had noticed off of I-80. The owner directed us to Krugel's Deli (which looks like a deli/six-pack shop) up the street for a sit down lunch, since his shop was take out only.
Krugel's deserves its own post. Craft beer drinkers we are, I have never felt so overwhelmed in my life. Four new beers and two plates of the best pierogi ever (try the farmers cheese, and sweet cabbage was great too), we left with sixers to take home. Check this place out, you will not regret it. The gem of Wilkes-Barre, in my opinion.
We roamed around until the race, not finding much else to do (seemed a lot of local spots were closed due to the snow storm).
All in all, Wilkes-Barre and the Comfort Inn receive an A++ from me. Everyone in the town is incredibly friendly, and the hotel was immaculately clean. It even smelles clean in the hallways, which is rare for a hotel!
