The game room was closed for "renovation". We had stayed here before, chose this one because it had a game room. My prepaid room had the additional charge for rollaway bad, but they had no evidence of that at checkin. A call to manager and then
they "accommodated" me by throwing in the rollaway bed (which I had already paid for anyway!). Breakfast was fairly weak. My receipt had right name and room number, wrong address and amount.
ok fire alarm went off at 7am woke me up out of a dead sleep. got up anyway to go skiing. hotel is right off 81s and close to sno mountain. that is about it. food sucked. they had bacon mixed in with the eggs. nice for vegetarians. to many bad
experiences at this hotel, can't say we didn't try. not a bad place to flop for the night.
We had read a couple of mixed reviews and were a little concerned, but the room was perfectly clean, and the pool area seemed clean also. We had a king-size bed and a pull-out couch, which our son thought was cool. There was a refrigerator in
the room; some other hotels we looked at charged extra for a fridge, so it was an amenity we appreciated. I was pleasantly surprised by the large, fluffy bath towels.
The complimentary breakfast was "serve yourself," with an employee assigned to refill stations as needed. I'd say it was a step or so above continental, and satisfied us. It included cereals, baked goods, a couple of hot items and - the fun part - a DIY waffle-baking machine. The only problem was the line for the waffle machine when the breakfast crowd grew a little large. (Each waffle took precisely 2.5 minutes to bake.) Everyone was pretty polite about it, fortunately.
We stayed there two nights and enjoyed it. I was just a little annoyed to come back to the room after our first day's outing and find an envelope on the table that, basically, reminded us to leave a tip for the maid. I don't need that reminder. But, if that's my biggest complaint, that's pretty good, I guess!

Short drive from hotel
Our main reason for visiting Scranton was Steamtown, a National Historic Site dedicated to the history of the region's railroading & mining industries. It was inexpensive and quite well done. Even apart from the rides on the trains, the exhibits were informative and lively! I'm not quite the railroad buff that my husband and son are, but if history and/or technology interest you at all, this place is worth a visit. It's run by the National Park Service. And we took two train rides that both happened to be using steam locomotives, so of course, that was the best! Don't wear delicate clothes, though - steam engines create soot, which definitely gets onto the passengers.
