“A pleasant surprise and good value.”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Comfortable bed, quality linens, fridge, microwave, fitness, pool, internet access, super shower all for a decent price. The room was spotless and spacious. We'd definitely stop here next time we pass through. Breakfast was fresh and varied but I would not recommend dinner.

I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in Wilkes-Barre, PA and was very pleased with my experience. The Garden Sleep System bed alleviated my chronic low back pain and now I'm considering buying a bed like this for my home. The made to order breakfast was very tasty and convenient in the dining room. Room service on a stormy night was very welcome and good. I will definitely stay at this hotel again when I'm in the area visiting family.

The Hilton Garden Inn in Wilkes Barre, PA is a welcoming restful hotel. It is exceptionally clean, quiet and friendly. The hospitality snacks in the lobby are better than average. The rooms are standard size yet very clean and well cared for. The location near the Arena is a plus as is the ease of getting on and off the highway. The nearby shopping area has a variety of restaurants for dining choices. The in house breakfast was quick and quite good. For travelers looking for good value, friendly service and a good nights rest, this hotel provided us with all three.

Thank you for your kind words of praise, our team works very hard to make each of our guests feel like they are in a home away from home. At the Hilton Garden Inn Wilkes-Barre, no need is too small and no comfort is neglected. I am pleased that you found the area so accommodating as well, the many restaurants, local shopping venues and the Mohegan Sun Casino make this an excellent place for travelers of all types.

A very nice hotel with friendly staff that care about making your stay enjoyable. This our second stay and it only got better than last year. We only do 300 to 350 miles per day so this hotel is perfect for us. Would encourage anyone to stay here.

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you continue to come back to visit. The best part of being so close to the interstate is that our out of town family can always come back to see us as they travel through Wilkes-Barre. We look forward to seeing you again next year!

we stopped at the Wilkes-Barre Hilton Garden Inn. It's very clean and bright, with very friendly attentive staff. the hotel is adjacent to a plaza with stores and restaurants of all kinds. We'd recommend staying here and we'd stay here again.

Room Tip: 412 was good, it overlooks a large L&T parking lot.

This Hilton Garden surpassed all expectations with large clean and bright rooms extremely well maintained and well equipped. The Hotel is very clean, staffed by friendly attentive staff in all departments. If your travels take you to the Scranton/Wilkes Barre region this is a no brainer. Highly recommended for value for money and a very pleasant stay.

Very nice hotel and great service. We visited during December and it was decorated very nicely. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We were going to Mohegan Sun casino nearby and they provided excellent directions which helped us get around a lot of traffic.
