“Nice place”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

We had a great overnight stay in a suite. We Ordered room service and the food was great. I would recommend this place for a nice getaway. Pricey but clean! We didn't do the nightlife thing but I've been here before and it's fun! They also host great wedding so if you get invited to one... Go ! Food is great!

Dear Bob-N-Wend:

Thank you for sharing your experience. I hope you took advantage of all our amenities. From our indoor pool to our 17,000 gallon indoor Jacuzzi, maybe a few spa treatments from Alexander's in the woods. We also have two restaurants and several nightlife spots for entertaining. If you didn't have time to visit all the venues there's always next time.

Thank you,
Ross Kornfeld

Two weeks ago my friends and I went to the Woodlands Inn & Resort for a week-end getaway, We had an amazing time as usual ! The staff are very friendly and want to see that your stay is a great one. Every time we go it's nothing but the best in service! We are looking forward to our next trip in August! Keep up the good work Melinda, Ross, Mitch, Rick, Lori and all the others. If you have not been to the Woodlands you definitely have to check it out!

Room Tip: I especially like the suites.

Front desk staff friendly, helpful. Two good restaurants on site, Bar and Nightclub crowded on the weekend we were there. Shuttle bus service to Mohegan Sun Casino. Two pools, one indoor, one outdoor. Only drawback, signage to rooms confusing.

Room Tip: ask for a balcony room overlooking stream.

My husband and I stayed for his birthday weekend and had an excellent time. We've alsways passed when visiting family and friends in Wilkes Barre, PA and promised each other we would stay there one day, so when it was time for my husbands birthday, it was a pleasent surprise for him.

Dear Laura R:

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am glad you finally stayed after many visits to Wilkes-Barre. What event should we celebrate next? Why not make it a spa weekend, book a few treatments, bottle of champagne, enjoy both of our restaurants as well as our nightlife. Again, thank you for the review and we look forward to your next stay with us.

My husband booked this hotel for our anniversary because he thought it was in the woods where we could go hiking (cause that's just what we do). But upon arrival, when the GPS had reached the destination, his face deflated because the inn was right across the street from a car dealership. So at that point we were not expecting much. However, it turned out to be a very fun weekend. The staff at this place were all extremely friendly! Everything, including spa services was very reasonably priced. Sitting outside to have breakfast/lunch by the creek was very nice. We had a couples massage outside and it was very nice and not expensive at all!

About the hotel itself, it was clean and renovated, but the rooms were a bit small. The gym, pools (both indoor and outdoor) are not mention worthy. Did work out at the gym while we were there, but like I said, not fantastic.

As for the surrounding area...there are a few places to go hiking, but since the weather wasn't all that fantastic we opted not to vist. There is a place called "7 tubs" which was only a few miles away and from the pictures/reviews it looks nice, so something to look into. There was also a casino up the street which was very lively on a Saturday night. It had 2 live bands....typical casino, but if that's what you are into, you will enjoy it. In all honesty, the area around the hotel was quite ugly and not picturesque, but if you stay in the hotel and never look out towards the street, you will enjoy this place!

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room. And maybe one with a view.

Dear Lisa C:

Thank you for writing such a detailed review about your most recent stay. Our name would indicate more of a wooded setting, I can understand the disappointment as you drove into our parking lot. We're very happy to hear that once inside all was good with the world. You might want to visit either Ricketts Glen State Park or Frances Slocum State Park, both around 2o minutes from our location. Again, thank you for the positive words and we look forward to seeing you on a future stay.

My best friend just had her reception at the woodlands and everything the woodlands did was perfect! The food was excellent and beautifully presented. The head table and the rest of the guests were all served at the same time and each course was served fast and the food was still hot when it was served to us. All the bar tenders, waiters, and waitresses were very very friendly and helpful! Everyone at the wedding was treated like royalty. And the cocktail hour was great too! Great wedding venue for the area!

I've stayed at this hotel a few times over the years. Never had a nice court yard with an beautiful view of a stream. This hotel has a very. The room as spacious and clean. I love the down comforters and pillows in the room. The hotel has a night club that can get pretty busy on the weekends. This is cool because the club is located far enough away as to not interrupt your stay. The hotel has several bars and lounging areas. There is a Japanese restaurant and a Italian place within the hotel both offer excellent food. There is an indoor pool and an outdoor pool both are nice but the jacuzzi is the real gem. The hotel also offers a shuttle to the casino. if you are looking to relax this is the place for you but if during your stay you decide you what to have a little more fun and maybe party. this is the place for you. not really sure if this is a place for kids. I didn't really see and kids activities but then again i don't have kids so i wasn't looking for them either.

Room Tip: Ask for the stream side court yard room.
