Reviewed 13 December 2014

I have stayed in this facility twice in the last year. Service, dining and accommodations are excellent. What you'd pay $450 a night for in most cities. Also, a lovely setting with a view over a small flowing river available from some rooms and two of the on facility restaurants.

If you do not want to leave, you do not have to as there are restaurants and plenty of entertainment on the grounds. Now we are talking about Wilkes-Barre; and if you have never been here then you should...

Our whole family loves this hotel. We just stayed there for the second time on Thanksgiving and had a great experience. The staff is so friendly and genuine that they make you feel like family.

Have stayed here several times. Easy access to Highway. Free breakfast is good. Ask for tower room on back side away from road it can get a little noisy. Staff is always helpful. Good parking right out front.

Stayed here with my wife and friends in a top floor tower room. Chose this because the last time I stayed stream-side it was loud.

“Do not get a room in the main aisle (very noisy). The tower corner rooms off of Rt 315 are very noisy from traffic.”

“** Ask for streamside or courtyard view with balcony for the best view. While it is located on the side of a highway, you don't ever see the highway again - you feel like you are nestled in the woods.”
