My girlfriends and I chose this location for our girlfriend get- away and I couldn't be more pleased! I think it is priced fairly for location and amenities. Pros: 1. Location. This is right down the road from Mohegan sun and offers good shuttle service to the hotel. It is also not too far from other Pocono attractions and only...

We have been to the Woodlands a few times and every visit is great. The free shuttle to the Casino along with very friendly staff makes the visit even better. The rooms are clean and beds firm. The package deals include free breakfast me coupons for light dinners and complimentary champagne or wine and the cost of the package is...

We recently had a family medical emergency and had to quickly find accommodations in Wilkes Barre. Knowing The Woodlands is a landmark in the area, it was our first thought and we were very pleased with our selection. The hotel staff members were extremely hospitable - from the front desk, to the restaurant staff, and Jason who hosted the evening...

Lately when visiting Mohegan Sun Casino I've stayed at a chain hotel. Hadn't stayed at the Woodlands for two years. It was just as nice as I remembered it. Very pleasant staff. Extras such as made to order omelets and a tremendous breakfast selection. The sound and sight of the beautiful stream from your private balcony almost makes you forget...

A friend recommended this location as her family loves it. My family of two adults, two kids, and two dogs had a great two night stay there. I thought the price of the room was quite fair. We ate at both restaurants which were great, and enjoyed the wonderful breakfast buffet. The facility was clean. The kids enjoyed the pool...

The woodlands was a great hotel. The indoor pool was beautiful & the huge hot tub was even better. I stayed 2 nights with my boyfriend for a getaway. The room was small but cozy. It was clean.

This is my third time staying here and really enjoy it. If you go during the week there is a free happy hour from 5-6 and free breakfast. The amenities are great including the exercise room, swimming pool, and whirlpool.

The Woodlands is one of the better places to stay. Great for a couple's get-a-way or a family stay. Something here for everyone. Free shuttle service to the Mohegan Sun Casino. You are in the city, yet how the hotel is laid out and set back slightly you feel like you are at an outdoor retreat.
