We spent an extended period of time at the Host Inn due to temporary work in the area. The first thing I will say is this hotel would be excellent if the ownership was willing to put some money into updating a thing or two. TV's and towels/linens would be the first area I would suggest improvement.
Every room is a suite (extended stay type), so you'll be equipped with a kitchen no matter what.
The location is excellent, right off of 390 and 83. Directly across (walking distance) from the Wyoming Valley Mall. TGI Fridays is attached to one of the sister hotels, and there are plenty more restaurants within minutes of driving.
The laundry is expensive, $2.00 per load. When you are staying here for an extended period it gets to be a bit much.
The staff is all excellent, from the moment we got there to the many months after we left they were wonderful. If we needed anything at all they were extremely helpful.
One of the reasons we choose host was because they accept pets. There is no great area to do dog walking around the property, however there is a courtyard near the Quality Inn and a dog run at the side of the hotel.
If you don't mind the sound of the highway, request a room that faces the valley. The views are spectacular from the second and third floor!
All in all the Host Inn was perfect for our short term living arrangements and we enjoyed our stay!
