The free breakfast and an indoor swimming pool. The staff and location. The overall room. What I didn’t like was that they only do housekeeping every third day for towels and toiletries and cleaning of the room.

Clean, comfortable hotel with friendly staff

Pros: The room was clean and comfortable (two queen-size beds). Complimentary hot and cold breakfast buffet in lobby was well-stocked. Free Wi-Fi.
Cons: One day, housekeeping missed our room, but we were able to get clean towels at the front desk.
Location: Hotel located just off the highway, so it's easy to get to. We visited wild animal park in Poconos and Steamtown in Scranton. Bowling alley nearby.
I visited with my husband and our 9-year-old for an end-of-summer getaway. We had a little trouble finding the hotel because our online directions led us to the old downtown section of town, but once we called the hotel, they were able to give us the correct directions and I was very pleasantly surprised at the location. We were just off the highway but yet the hotel was well-situated (not noisy, although I did hear some trucks at night). There is a restaurant/pub in the lobby, which we didn't use, and there's a Perkins restaurant just across the parking lot (which we did). The indoor pool is a little small (according to my daughter) but it was nice to have a pool onsite. The location was good for making day trips to the Poconos and to Scranton. I did not use the fitness center, but my husband did and commented that it was a little small. (Still, he used it each day of the trip.)

Not bad, but not impressed

The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The only decent restaurant within walking distance was the Perkins. We opted to eat at the hotel restaurant / bar. The food was terrible and over priced for what you got and the service was very slow. The pool was freezing. The only reason I got in was so that my little one could swim. The room the pool was in was very warm... the water should have been about the same temperature. The breakfast was good but not what I expected. I expected to get warm eggs not cold hard boiled ones to go with my sausage. I can't say I would stay there again. I would pay the extra money and stay at the Hampton one exit up. Better location to restaurants and probably better quality.

A very nice experience

Let me start by saying we are not your average traveler.(We don't travel too far, too often). We don't usually stay at hotels because of bad experiences in the past (staff,cleanliness, etc.). We use our camper for most of our travels. Having said that, lets get to the hotel. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was clean, the room was clean, staff was very friendly and our room had a nice view of the sunrise over the mountains. Altho the hotel does have an indoor pool and a fitness room (3 machines)and a small pub style restaurant (closed for holiday) we did not use them. Activities and meeting rooms, did not see any (but was not looking for them). The hotel provided a self service type of breakfast, (breads, bagels, muffins, sausage patties, scrambled egg patties, waffles, oatmeal, cold cereal, milk, juice, coffee and more?) If that's not what you're looking for, there's a restaurant (Perkins) just outside the parking lot. We stayed over the X-mas holiday so the hotel was operating on a reduced staff (and reduced patrons) but we got everything we asked for, quickly. We had a very nice stay. Now, for the money. Not being a hotel traveler I thought it was a bit expensive. The deal we gotonline made it hurt a bit less though. All things considered---A very nice experience.

Excellent stay

While we were only here for 1 evening, the room was clean and comfortable. We had a King and 2 person hot tub room. Very relaxing!
