“Clean and safe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Not for everyone, its a bit aged but its cheap, real cheap and basically clean.

We had bugs for a week and had to bomb the house and stayed here and it was perfect for the wife and kids.

There sometimes is no one there, just bang on the door or call the number on the desk

Room Tip: Hmnmmm, probably closes to the office

There must have been an event in Wilkes-Barre as every place was either filled or at least double the price of this place. The room seemed clean enough but the refrigerator was filthy around the door. The room was small with no room for other than a desk-type chair -- nothing like the pictures here. A continental breakfast was included -- ending at 10:00am Sunday morning. We went at 8:40am and the only things left were a few powdered donuts and enough cream cheese for one bagel. The breakfast area of the lobby was just not clean There was no tea or coffee. The manager was there but she clearly was not going to replenish anything -- not even beverages. She was very pleasant during our whole stay, from check-in to check-out. We appeared to be the only overnight guests. All the others were weekly or longer-stay guests. What is interesting is that, though we could not recommend this place to anyone, for one night it was probably better than paying more than double to stay someplace better. Go figure.

Me and my husband went to visit family over easter and needed somewhere cheap to stay. Funny about the hotel was that they had a sign on the desk with a phone number to call and nobody at the desk. A lady came from the back and checked us in. The room was smelly even though it was supposed to be a non smoking room, not sure but most likely it was cigarette smell.
The furniture is dated but that would be ok. The towels in the bathroom were dingy, we had our own since I kind of expected it to be this way and was prepared - traveling on a budget :-))). Overall the room served the purpose, we didnt spend time in there other than take a short nap and take showers but the smell was bad.

My mom had to go to the area to care for her 94 year old mother and found this hotel to be FILTY and the staff on the verge of abusive. Stay at the Days in down the street, stay away from this hotel save yourself the aggrivation.
