We stayed at this hotel end December and gave it 5 points, and they deserved it. This time around, not so good. The rooms are fine, some little hiccups as others noted, but quite okay for the money. The breakfast however was nothing like before. The only protein was a cold hard boiled egg. There were no waffles or pancakes....

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience regarding your recent stay at our hotel. We very much appreciate and value your feedback. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback but dis-heartening to hear your visit was less than expected.

Stayed at the Econo Lodge on our way home from Florida. The people were excellent and I recommend staying here. The room was clean as was the rest of the hotel. It is pet friendly if you need it, but not much room to take the dog out. That would be the only slightly negative comment. We will stay there...

This Econo Lodge is hands down the best Econo Lodge we have stayed in. Clean through out, friendly staff, easy off and on I 81 and they even have a kitchen for the guests to use! Will stay here every time we go through Wilkes Barre. Not many bells and whistles but just a great place to stop for a...

We decided to give this hotel another try based on the recent reviews and I can't believe we stayed in the same hotel! This hotel has three floors, the top one is reserved for smokers and the first floor caters to pets and their owners. We stayed on the supposedly smoke free second floor. As soon as the fan came...

I have stayed at this Econo Lodge several times. Stayed in Feb and March of this year, so far. This is one of the most clean motels I have ever stayed, and it has been that way every time I've stayed here. TV, lights, heat - everything worked great. Easy access from the interstate, great rates, and very nice staff...

We are Choice Hotel fans. We typically stay at their higher end properties-- Comfort Inn and Suites--when traveling for both business and pleasure. We opted to try this Econo Lodge because of its Platinum Award status. Our quick overnight stay wouldn't require the amenities offered by the more expensive alternatives. We have stayed in other platinum award winning properties for...
