A perfectly nice, older hotel

I feel like the hotel owners only had $x to spend on renovations, and they spent it on all the right things. Pros -location to downtown (you're already there) -free, secure parking -lounge in lobby -friendly, courteous staff -comfy beds -fridge in room -lots of full length mirrors -microwave in room -nice drapes, bedding etc. -soft lighting -quiet -decent black-out drapes Cons -a bit expensive for the age of hotel and town -lobby is very outdated, creepy butler statue in the corner -parking was tricky to figure out, had to park, check in and then use room key to enter lot

Nice Stay Close to Mohegan Sun

This was a very nice hotel in close proximity to the Mohegan Sun. We were able to take a taxi for under $20 and be there in about 7 minutes. Would recommend for couples or families who need to stay in the Wilkes-Barre area.

One night.stay

We got in and they had no luggage carriers to bring luggage to our room. Had to hand carry everything. No parking except handicap and they said they would tow our car if we parked in front. Check in young girl did not have a clue about service. Good thing it was only one night.
