The hotel room met my expectation. The room was clean fresh painted.

We were traveling till EWR airport in Jersey city from North of US and that was good choice to make a stop 2 hr before NY. You gowhat you pay. Good price for this hotel.

Loved this hotel! It was clean, the room was large and there was no carpeting instead there were wood floors which were very clean. The breakfast was great as well

Stayed for reunion.Regular hotel filled. Was VERY pleased. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Room was spotless. Crisp clean sheets & plenty of pillows. Good coffee with continental breakfast. Would stay again.

I found the place to be very clean. The staff was so very nice. The gentleman in the breakfast room made me a waffle. So good too! My only problem was trying to get on the WIFI. I did not find the directions on the card to be complete. But I was so tired when I arrived, it seemed that it was a good idea to go to bed. I liked the selection of pillows because I like thin pillows and there was one to suit me.

The hotel was very clean and at a perfect location for us. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

we were passing through wilkes barre and needed to stop for night. we choose this place based on low price but it had everything we needed. check in pesron was very nice. we got very good nights sleep.

The staff is super nice and helpful. We will be staying again!

Visited family in the area over Thanksgiving - the Econo Lodge was an ideal place to hang my hat for the evenings. Clean rooms, nice staff, ideal location and a great value!

Super clean. Room was spotless, heater didn't make too much noise, bed was a tad too hard for me, water in shower was good and hot, and the staff was great.

Great value here. Clean, efficient, pleasant staff, convenient. kitchen for Cont. bkfst a bit cramped, but the variety of food is fine. A good buy!

Close to all amenities,good breakfast and friendly staff

Very Nice and location was great. It was a great value for the price.

room fine breakfast simple in tught quarters oriental guests were rude and grabed extra food to take with

Good location and was a good value. Staff was friendly. I wish they had a gym inside but they did offer a place to go for working out.

Great price for very nice, comfortable room. Room was clean and had microwave and mini refrigerator. Staff was nice and even gave us fold up bed no charge. Would recommend.

Very clean hotel with excellent staff and central location to various venues.

Got a room for $117 including tax the night before a Saturday overnight stay. Had hoped to get a much cheaper rate, but chalked it up to it being a weekend night during prime-time wedding and reunion/vacation season. Was extremely pleased the staff allowed us an early check-in at 12:30. The room was clean and relatively comfortable with a microwave and fridge, which was really appreciated. The towels were stiff and I immediately removed the hideous, scratchy coverlet on the bed. I think the bed was one of those air mattresses, because it bulged and squeaked awkwardly, but was comfortable. The pillows were lumpy. All this said, the hotel is located conveniently to shopping and restaurants (great pagash at The Dough Company down the road; Kmart and Target are nearby and there is a Perkins next door where you can get a 5 percent discount if you show your room key, apparently) and there is a decent continental breakfast (pastries, cereal, coffee) and free copies of the paper IF you get up early enough. The main reason I would never stay here again is that the walls are paper-thin. We were awakened at 5 am by a screaming baby and their parents talking loudly and at length. It honestly felt like they were in the room with us. It was impossible to fall back asleep and we were exhausted the rest of the day. In hindsight, we should have brought earplugs. If you do the same, it is possible to have a good stay here. It just wasn't fun to pay a high rate and leave the place exhausted.

Went to visit family and view sights, room was great and right next to highway. Wish there were more pillows, or bigger ones but otherwise breakfast was great, staff was friendly and rooms were clean, thanks!!

Clean for the price.
