“No Foreigners Welcome”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

After passing the hotel wayne numerous times throughout our stay in Honesdale, we decided it would be an ideal place to stop for drinks or to purchase some carry out, however, as soon as we approached the bar our opinion of what we assumed to be a nice place changed. We received no greeting from any of the staff and had to stand at the bar waiting to be served whilst, who i assume was the manager, stood behind the bar doing nothing before slowly making her way over to us. We asked politely if we could purchase some carry out beers, only for her to demand I.D. from us all, obviously this is expected when buying alcohol but the lack of manners and friendliness from someone meant to be front of house is disgraceful. The lady serving us, who was small with short blonde hair, took each of our passports and spent an awful long time inspecting them before turning to my father, who is 57 years old, and demanding his passport before she would serve anyone. Unfortunately, my father does not often require identification often considering it is, or I would have thought it is blindingly obvious that he is not under twenty one years old. The only words uttered by the waitress at this point was 'i need I.D. from everyone'. Every single person in the party, even my 47 year old mum, had provided identification and my father produced his driving licence as a form of ID as he did not have anything else with him. The waitress then laughed and said 'i can't accept this', at this point it was blindingly obvious that she did not want to serve us at all and i can't help but wonder if a 57 year old man without foreign accent came into the bar would she be expecting him to carry his passport with him for a drink? The service in the Hotel Wayne is atrocious, and this incident cost the hotel wayne $50 which we went on to spend in the Limerick just down the road. I would most certainly advise anyone staying in the area to save yourself the trouble of dealing with uncooperative staff in the Hotel Wayne and just to head straight down to one of the many places in town where the staff are more than welcoming to the tourists that help keep their businesses going.

This review makes no sense at all other than directing people to a competitive establishment. One major inconsistency is that she claims she stayed there at the end of the review but only states that she stopped by for a drink.
The Hotel Wayne rigidly complies with the spirit, intent and letter of the Pennsylvania liquor laws and will not serve underage drinkers and has strict standards to comply with in establishing legal age. If we feel that a member of a party is underage, we will not serve them.

We ate supper in the restaurant today. We won't be returning. The wait staff spends more time talking to each other than helping the patrons. We had to sit through supper and listen to how our waiter's wife was puking all night due to food poisoning. All while we were eating supper. We had to ask for menus and condiments.

The food was okay.

First of all I just want to say this is an historic hotel so don't come here expecting the Hilton or Holiday Inn or any other chain hotel. We come here to visit family and the hotel has a nice friendly family feel to it. This is our second stay at this hotel and it holds up to our first stay here. The only issue I would say is that if you can't climb stairs there is no elevator.

I stayed at the Hotel Wayne recently for a full week on a business trip.
The hotel is much improved from what the reviews from two years ago seem to reflect. My understanding is that the bar and restaurant were significantly upgraded to provide a fine dining experience.
I enjoyed a couple of great dinners in the restaurant. The bartender is very sharp, and the wine list is a good one. Prices are very fair. The filet was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten in a restaurant.
The Hotel is an old building with lots of charm. That's not for every traveler, but as a business traveler it's a nice change of pace from chain hotels. The place was dead quiet at night, and I never heard noise from the bar area or anywhere else. When you add in the reasonable price, the Hotel Wayne stacks up as a tremendous travel value.

This was the second time that we stayed at Hotel Wayne, and our sojourn there was as pleasant and satisfying as the first experience. The staff was pleasant and helpful, the room was clean and cheerful, and we were most comfortable. What was most outstanding was the restaurant located right in the hotel. The menu was extensive, and the food was delicious. We recommend this facility without any reservation.

needed a place for family to stay for wake...not much in the area unless u drift to the resorts like woodloch or villa roma. friend in the area ssuggested it and it was more than a pleasant surprise. OLE SKOOL....right out of a movie. rooms above a saloon. the rooms were clean, comfortable and each had its own personality with furnishings. not a cookie cutter like a chain. the bar was not a problem noise wise....older crowd, and a plus; excellent food. not one peep from the peeps. will def use again.

I have to laugh at some of the reviews for the Hotel Wayne in Honesdale. Folks, this is not a chain hotel. If you have no appreciation for a historic building and setting, don't stay here. We booked two rooms for a family event. The person behind the cubby-hole lobby desk was helpful and pleasant. The central staircase was classic, beautiful woodwork and the creaky floors definitely transported us to another long-gone era. The king room was huge, very clean, overlooking a moderately busy Main Street (Friday night). The non-working fireplace was a nice touch and the ceiling was enormously high. Yes, the bathroom is in a closet but it served its purpose along with the sink in the room. It was 95 degrees and the hallway was HOT. I fretted about the small window air-conditioner in the room, but it kept up to the challenge and provided comfortable conditions. And it was quieter than many chain hotel AC units that I have struggled with. Enjoyed a nice cigar on the 2nd floor hallway balcony on a warm evening. Quiet comfortable sleeping night. Coffee and danish were available in the morning, not until about 7:30 though, no rush here on a Saturday morning! No frills check out, left the keys at the counter and waved at some of the staff. The bar and restaurant on the first floor fit in nicely with the vibe, a great setting with everything from outside cafe seating to white table cloth dining. Try getting that at a Hampton Inn. The wife loved it, it was a unique stay and I would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Second floor King room, end unit, was spacious. Recommended.
