If you need a simple, clean, quiet, friendly place to stay this is it. Even pets are welcome and ours got treats from Jenn at the front desk. She was very friendly and pleasant, knew the neighborhood for directions and eats. Close to many types of businesses and so easy to find!

Room Tip: rooms around back obviously quietest

I stop here 2 or 3 times a year. Over the past three years Red Roof Inn Inc. has updated all their properties. This is no exception. The upgrades are nice and standard across the country.This is one of the few Red Roof Inns that I have stayed in that is always clean and smell-free. (I frequently travel with my cat and at Red Roof Inns pets stay free). However, over the past few years the area around this Red Roof Inn has grown. There is now a very large casino about a mile or two away as well as other tourist attractions. I think this Red Roof Inn gets more traffic than it did previously and it shows in the upkeep of the grounds as well as the mattresses and furnishings.

Positives: near restaurants and a mall; off route 84; inexpensive for what you get; very quiet once you are in the room - walls are thick. The folks at check-in are always efficient and friendly.

Negatives: like all Red Roof Inns there is no hair dryer and towels are thin. The room updates seem to not be holding up as well as they should be, parking lot can be crowded. The Inn is used a great deal by folks who are working construction jobs in the area.

Room Tip: Spend the $8-$10 to upgrade to a "deluxe" room -- you get a microwave, a fridge, a large d...

We found the Wilkes-Barre Red Roof much improved from past stays there. There had been serious remodeling, and the room was comfortable, clean and attractive. The people at the desk were very friendly, eager to be sure all was well with us. The hotel is located right by I-81, but getting to the West Side (our destination) is a breeze, just a few minutes. We were very happy with the accommodations, and the price was certainly right.

Room Tip: Nicer view from the back side of the hotel, upper level.

I stayed here when coming in for my child's soccer tournament and it was great. Everything was above my expectations for a motel.

I had a special request for first floor and to my surprise it was right next door to the lobby. How wonderfully convenient! Very pleased at this point only to get better. I stopped into the front desk and had asked for more pillows and blankets which they none available on hand. Less than 2 minutes later a very pleasant woman had brought us pillows and blankets which was also so wonderful.

Upon check out they had fresh coffee and USA Today which was a pleasant surprise.

All in all it was a great stay and I would definitely recommend this hotel and we will DEFINITELY be back to stay again.
