Booked our room through the hotel web-site, which usually has bargains. We've stayed at this hotel twice before. Each time we received a coupon for $ off at the restaurant, $ off on drinks at the bar and breakfast coupons. There was a coupon in a Hotels.com magazine and a different deal on the hotel's web-site, so make sure you...

Stayed on 8/29 as an overnight on our way to Canada. Made the reservation using points so wasn't aware of the $60.00 non-refundable pet fee until I called to confirm it was a pet friendly room. I'm sure it's in the fine print somewhere & didn't want to fool with trying to cancel & get the points reinstated so just...

Dear Beachlovers9: Thank you for sharing your experience. I think that most dogs respond the same way when in an environment other than their own homes. When dogs are left in our rooms alone all they do is bark until there owners return. Thank you again for your comments. Ross Kornfeld

All inclusive site, good food, indoor and outdoor pool, great Jacuzzi. Entertainment at the outdoor bar and club. Staff was very friendly and the grounds were kept. Loved our 2nd floor with a balcony facing woods.

This hotel really caters to the baby boomers as the Manager(?) specifically announced on stage (there was a band playing various classics). He stated that he prefers these types of guests and continued to say "F*&% the kids!" but then immediately apologized for cursing. We were really shocked, confused and instantly felt out of place. Some other points are noted...

We stayed in room 221, which has a great view of the stream. We enjoyed our stay. The have the BEST pillows lol. The bed was a little hard. They was a sliding door to the back yard patio which was great to sit and look at the running stream. It was very relaxing and nice place.

I had stayed at the Woodlands 8/27 - 8/30/14. My main reason for staying there was to golf. They offer a golf inclusive plan that is really a good value and the course was beautiful. In addition, Mohegan Sun Casino and track were a mile down the road. The hotel provided a shuttle so I did not have to use...

I have to start by saying that the staff at the Woodlands was one of the best I've ever encountered. The hotel itself is fine - nothing special but it did have comfy beds and two pools - and the location is Wilkes Barre. Wilkes Barre is not the nice Poconos getaway I was expecting, but it has its charms....
