Wilkes Barre has grown leaps and bounds in the 20 years I have been visiting. The Hilton Garden Inn is one of the best places to stay when visiting Wilkes Barre. Staff is very pleasant and professional.

The location is easy as others have said, and a lot of amenities are near by. The property seems newer and so everything works, nice fitness center. I do wish foam pillows were made available. Staff is great.

Green Features: There was a recycling bin in the lobby, but not the divided small bin in the room I always look for and expect from Hilton properties.

This is a great place to stay for the value. The rooms are renovated but the ventilation system is not. The beds are super comfy and the cooked to order breakfast is the best deal. We had to switch our rooms due to the airconditioning malfunction and it was noisy when it came on but otherwise the place is wonderful quiet and easy to get to.

Hello Sharon L,
Thank you for the positive comments. One of the many benefits at Hilton Garden Inn is the cooked to order, freshly prepared breakfast. We know a great night’s sleep is also very important and were glad to read your comments concerning how comfy the bed was. We do apologize for the ac noise and will address it appropriately. Thank you again for the feedback and look forward to welcoming you back in the very near future.

Very nice hotel with many restaurants nearby and a great sushi restaurant right next door. The hotel is in sight of the traffic light at the interstate exit. There is also a shopping center beside the hotel in case you need anything.

We were in town a couple of weeks ago for an event in the Poconos. This hotel was a good location for us, with a comfortable, spacious room. It is within walking distance to a restaurant, and easy driving distance to several more. The room was very spacious, that's what we felt drove it above average for other hotels with a similar cost.

Three stars is probably grade inflation. It deserves no more than 2 and a half. The staff is nice and they try hard even if they are not aways effective. Overall, the hotel was fine for a couple of nights, especially given the lack of really great alternatives in the area. The room was clean enough to stay in, but not exceptionally clean. The bed was not that comfortable. There are few creature comforts here. The workout facility was small but fine for my purposes. The indoor pool was okay to entertain the kids for a short period. When we were at the hotel, carpets were being replaced, so it felt like living in a construction zone at times. It did not cause a real problem, but it was less than ideal, and I was surprised that the hotel did not do something for us (beyond just charging us the full price).
