We wanted to stay one night in the Wilkes-Barre area as part of a longer driving trip. We chose this hotel because of its location and low rate.
We were there less than 12 hours, but they stay was fine. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The room itself was okay. It was clean enough, but it seemed that it had been a while since the last renovation/remodeling. That didn't bother us, but if you are looking for something new and shiny, this isn't it. If you want something reasonable, clean and convenient, this is the place for you.
Instead of eating the free breakfast, we went over to Perkins.
Also, the hotel had free internet, but both neither my husband nor I could get it to work on our laptops. It wasn't a big deal to us for one night. My husband just used the business center.
By the way, the room did have a fridge and microwave, so that is always a plus.
