Residence Inn by Marriott Scranton

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Trucks go uphill just to the south of Residence Inn in low gear on I-81 and come down the same way--at many, many decibels. They run all night by room 107 and, one suspects, many others. Hear them shift!! The entrance to the Inn looks like an abandoned staging point for WWII's Operation Overlord--weeds growing from broken concrete. In fact, there's little sign of maintenance inside or outside this Residence Inn. The rooms are quite tastefully decorated in deep forest w/elegant lamps. Still other "housekeeping" chains have outpaced Marriott's lately. The kitchen is minimal but offset by outstanding bed and bedding. We cant remember a more commodious room for sleeping (when there are no trucks.) Do not get your hopes up about the complimentary breakfast. It's best to buy something to microwave at home. And up the hill to the north is a wonderful Wegmans market. For those from further West, this chain is, simply, peerless. This is a great place for dogs. Given the growing scientific evidence of the psychological importance of pets to an increasing number of Americans, one would expect a larger number of Fido welcoming Atlantic seaboard venues.accepting cats and small dogs. One has to go to Wilkes-Barre to find competition for Residence Inn (It also has a centrally located Wegmans.) Scranton is our escape from a frenetic Philly.

We don't travel often much anymore, but I have to say that this hotel was amazing. This is our first time staying at Residence Inn and we will absolutely will book again. We actually may even start traveling more, as your rooms provide every convenience of home.

We stayed in a 1-room suite, the kids complained that the fold-out couch bed was uncomfortable but our King-sized bed was plenty comfortable for us! It was nice having the kitchen in the room, plenty of dishes and cookware if you wanted to cook a full meal. Pool was nice, but a hot tub would be better! Staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Plenty of food for breakfast in the morning. Thanks for a great stay!

Upon arrival at this hotel, we were greeted by Bernice who was helpful and friendly. We asked for a quiet room and we were given room #204, no traffic noise. Thank you Bernice! The suite was a good size with an equipped kitchen and full size fridge. The room was very clean with a comfortable king bed. A large flat screen tv in the room swiveled so that you could easily watch it in the sitting area or the bed. Breakfast was varied with hot and cold selections. The only negative for me was the extremely loud a/c noise. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel was convenient to traveling through, which was our main objective that night. Our room was next to the elevator, but the walls are sound proof and we never heard the elevator once! Very clean, but the mattress and pillows weren't very comfortable. Over all, satisfied.

Very close to Scranton, but also close to the Mall and many restaurants. Just off 81, so easy to get to. Check in service and breakfast service was great. Breakfast is free, and includes Eggs, Sausage, Bacon., etc. They have a Gym and a pool.

This is the worst Residence Inn we have ever stayed in and is in desperate need of a complete remodel. It features filthy carpet and floor tile grout, entry doors that need refinishing and a parking lot that one has to be careful navigating or else it is easy to tip over your luggage on the uneven surface. In addition, the trash container along the walkway into the hotel was overflowing. Our stay was in July, 2017.

My visit started out great when I went in to check in (we had booked the room about 30 minutes earlier on it took less than two minutes to get the keys and be on my way to the room. the room was fine, not great but definitely decent. the breakfast was excellent.

We chose this Marriott as our stopover location going from VA to NH and back, and we were so glad we did. We found the hotel to be quiet and clean, and the staff was wonderful. For us, having a full-sized coffee pot in our extended stay room was perfect and was the only one we encountered on our 10-day road trip. The bed was super-comfortable, the bathroom adequate, and the overall layout of the room was nice. The only room negative was the heat from the gas fireplace pilot light in the middle of the summer!!! Might want to shut those down and save on some gas. Breakfast area was busy as the food was great.....even had some Andouille sausage one morning. And the hotel was close to the very nice restaurant Nosh. The hotel was dog-friendly and had lots of walking areas and doggy bags available. If the doors into the hotel had auto-openers on them it would have been the perfect experience!!! And while we saw lots of folks who stayed here as extended-stay hotel patrons, we had no problem with anyone or their lifestyle while working out-of-town. Would definitely stay here again after our two night experience.

The hotel was nice and clean, the staff was helpful and friendly. Its dog friendly and close to a loy of shopping and restaurants. The down side was the cookout and drinking in the parking lot. Seems like people who live at the hotel have large tailfate parties cooking out of their trucks and drink beer which was awkward and not what you would expect at a Marriott.
