“Nice hotel with good location”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

The staff at this very clean hotel were very friendly...It has a prime location very close to numerous restaurants...

High quality breakfast. It has to be one of the best hotels in the area.

This is a nice clean Garden Inn conveniently located to shops, restaurants and the Mohegan Sun Arena. Pool and fitness center looked really nice. Staff was friendly. Walls seem kind of thin...heard folks up, showering and talking very early in the morning. But we would stay here again (and probably will since it's just around the corner from Wegmans...which is an obligatory stop every time we are headed home on I-80 and I-81).
Breakfast looks nice but with so many other options in the area, $10.95 seems kind of steep. We ate elsewhere.

We loved the Hilton Garden Inn - Wilkes Barre! The room was immaculate, the amenities top notch, and the view of the venue second to none. Went to see Furthur in early November and the weather was perfect to boot. Nice job Hilton!

We went on a weekend trip to Wilkes Barre from Buffalo to catch the Wilkes Barre Penguins hockey game recently. Having stayed in Hilton Garden Inn's in the past, we were very satisfied with our hotel. The room was very clean and the staff friendly and helpful.

This hotel was central to shopping, restaurants and about 1/2 mile from the hockey arena. It has a small fridge and microwave in the room, and since the hotel shares a parking lot with a Super Walmart, one could have an economical stay. We went to Lucky's Sports Pub across the street as it was recommended by the hotel (Lucky's and Red Robin's does room service orders for the Hilton Garden Inn) and had a wonderful meal. I would suggest the Prime Rib French Dip from Lucky's all day long. All in all, we had a great stay and would definitely come back.

This is a pretty decent hotel, but its not what I consider "high end." The walls are certainly on the thin side. Late at night I could hear other guests TVs and conversations, and they weren't yelling. I went to take a swim at 9:00am only to find the pool closed for sanding.

Did not take advantage of breakfast, which is $10.95 or so a person for a buffet.

Staff was friendly.

Have stayed here several times in the past, most recently this week. It's your usual HGI. Although they don't serve dinner as other HGI do, there's a bar in the lobby open evenings. Walking distance to several chain restaurants and a Walmart.
