This hotel is quiet and close to the airport, however the hotel is dated and really needs a deep cleaning. I spent 20 minutes on the phone with their support desk to get connected to the internet, I was able to easily connect my I Pad and laptop the night before at a competing hotel chain. Many fixtures are showing... More

Hotel lobby and morning breakfast area were clean and inviting. Even though our room was clean and fresh, the furniture needed to be replaced. Couch had many "thread bare" areas and the carpeting was "tired". Property is very close to WB/S Airport, but we did not hear any aircraft noise. Nice pub type restaurant with outside seating within walking distance.

Holiday Inns are on the top of my places to stay, but this one wasn't the best. Although the hotel was very clean, and modern I was surprised to find a bobby pin in the bed when I pulled back the covers. Sheets didn't even appear to have been changed as they were wrinkled. Luckily this room had 2 beds,... More

I stayed in this hotel on my return trip to Massachusetts. If you are expecting to fly out, this location is good. It is located a few miles outside of the city, but there is a nearby restaurant if you don't plan to explore Wilkes-Barre. The service was excellent! The hotel is conveniently located off the highway. For a brief... More

Close to the airport but if driving the roundabout is tricky! Nice room and a very pleasant pool. Excellent staff and a free shuttle to local restaurants. I stayed twice on this trip because I'd enjoyed the first stay.

The Holiday Inn Express is as close to the airport as possible. Navigating to the hotel is a slight challenge is a double round about is under construction. A reasonable restaurant bar is within walking distance. There is a nice outdoor pool on the hotel grounds.

This hotel was fine, as airport inns go, but not great. The staff was very friendly, and the shuttle driver was more accommodating than most would have been, so I'd give the staff all five stars.
