Holiday Inn Express Wilkes-Barre/Scranton(Airport)

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Friendly and helpful staff, convenient shuttle which runs on request to the airport, park and fly option. We use this motel for early flights out of the Avoca airport and are never disappointed. Some breakfast products were ready by 5 AM when our plane left. Thank you!!

Room carpet was dated or dirty. Bathtub did not drain. Hotel changed WiFi code at midnight. Why not at noon when people have checked out? Would have appreciated an open electrical outlet on both sides of bed

Hotel met all our expectations. Very clean rooms and great breakfast. We will return next year for another stay.

Liked that the hotel is at the airport and 24hr shuttle service

It's perfect for a night, we use because was in our way to CT

Easy access to airport and walking distance to eat

If you are traveling you can't get any closer to the airport. Cleanliness is my main priority in a hotel. The rooms were clean and the staff were as friendly as you could ask for. The continental breakfast was much more than your typical continental breakfast. Hot pop corn and cookies at night in the lobby and a two minute shuttle to and from the airport made this a trip perfect for our needs. No view to speak of, but for business travel you can't beat it.

This hotel is so convenient and well kept. The staff is wonderful and nice restaurant next door. Rooms cleanliness is impeccable.

Not a bad hotel stay. Should be cheaper considering the location but would stay again if needed in the future. Thank you

The hotel was just what I was looking for. The Staff and everything could not be better or helpful. Outstanding breakfast and rooms were kept neat and clean. Thank You....

I always stay here because of its convenient location to my relatives who live locally. The rooms are quite and the planes cannot be heard, The best thing about the hotel is the staff - always out going and helpful. Also, It has lots of good parking and is exceptionally convenient to the airport for those 6:00 am departures. The only shortcoming I've ever seen is some of the cleaning staff smoke outside the front doors in the morning. I would suggest that they do it in the back since such a practice brings down the excellent overall impression of this hotel and ----- it is an Excellent place to stay.

I stayed 4 days, 3 nights at this hotel while helping my son and his family settle into a new home. The desk clerk was warm and accommodating in booking an extra room for his family -- boxes were everywhere in his house, beds weren't set up, etc. The smiles continued: the desk clerk and the breakfast hostess connected well with each traveler. I felt welcome and at home, and appreciated the haven. Breakfast bar was excellent, 24-hour coffee service was greatly appreciated, and the afternoon popcorn a great pick-me-up. Overall great experience.

I reserved a smoking room [...] but ended up with a non smoking room with no ability to switch. The shower curtain was filthy. The rest of the room was in great shape, the breakfast spread was a lot more than any of us expected.

[...]. This hotel room smelled SO bad that my clothes that sat in my suitcase still smell. If you stay here, beware!

When we first checked into the room, the air conditioner was vibrating loudly, they sent someone to check it right away. They gave us another room. The room was clean; bedding was comfortable and there were plenty of towels. The continental breakfast had a nice assortment of items. However, the breakfast was only available till 9:30am - forget it if you're a late riser!

I ONLY STAYED ONE NIGHT. I LIKE THAT IT IS SO CLOSE TO THE HOLTEL.

nice hotel, staff very nice, outdoor pool secluded and nice. restaurants are a drive away. there is one next door, that we did not try ..it closes around 10pm. free bkfst was very nice , no need for more than was offered. we used the hotel as our base and took trips from there.

Great place to stay. I'm only sorry it was for only one night and we had a 6 AM flight!

Hallways and rooms smelled terrible. Shower curtain had black stains on it.

My son and I were traveling in very difficult weather conditions and decided to stay in the Wilkes-Barre area rather than driving an additional three hours to our home. We were delighted to be treated to extremely friendly service, a spotless and very comfortable room and a tasty complimentary breakfast. To be quite honest, this hotel would not have been my first choice, but in the future it will be!
