Our family of 4 stayed here in one room for 2 nights. Place is clean, convenient and inexpensive. Beds were too soft for my liking but everything else was as expected. TV channels were not abundant but we did not spend much time in the room. Had a breakfast room but we did not utilize it.

For the price you cant beat it, paid less then $ 70 , the room was clean, and the front desk clerk Kevin was friendly and professional. My wife and I usually stay at high end hotels when we travel, but this time she made the reservation and choose this one, and I must say I was very pleased.

We found the room clean and comfortable, we liked the no carpet floors as this is a pet friendly hotel. the updates that were done to the rooms were well done but the desks and other furniture were not replaced although the wood furniture was in good condition it did not match the flooring ............this is not a bad thing...

Up here working the Susquehanna nuke plant. Didn't want to stay this far from the plant because I work 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. Drive time adds a lot more. Glad I stayed here. Brought my daughter, son in law and young granddaughter. Not impressed with Wilkes Barre at all. But this Econolodge is great! Great service......

We stayed in a king suite and received a great value! The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The tv was small for the size of the room.
