Motel 6 Wilkes Barre Arena
Ranked #16 of 21 Hotels in Wilkes-Barre
Reviewed 30 August 2014

This being my first stay with a Motel 6, I was cautious in my expectations. I was immediately impressed upon walking through the front door, and being greeted by front desk staff person Jennifer. She warmly explained everything I would need to know during my stay.
Newly opened, the accommodations are flawless. I choose a room with a kitchenette. It afforded me generous counter space, several cabinets, sink, heating area, large microwave and a full refrigerator/freezer. I could have been very comfortable, taking up residence for an extended period of time.
The bathroom provides a walk-in shower and only 2 bars of soap are supplied, so please remember personal toiletries. All else is adequate.
Bed and TV placement are perfect for space. A comfortable dining area exists to the right of the bed.
The room is nicely rounded off with a spacious closet, telephone and temperature controls.
If you are looking for a great, safe place to stay at a very reasonable rate Motel 6 fits the bill. Watch out, nearby snotty, overpriced hotel chains, Motel 6 is your competition!

Room Tip: Know what your personal requirements are. My third floor room was perfect. Fourth floor is reserved...

Great rooms, even though it's double beds, brand new hotel without carpets. Slept there Saturday night for one night, but loved it even though it's a small room, no place for an inflatable bed, even a single one.

If it wasn't for the guest above us who let his young kid run all over the place at 3AM until I contacted the front desk it would have been even better.

This is a new property, the landscaping still had straw and netting in the grass. That means the room itself was very clean. The walk-in shower (no tub) had adequate water pressure. The fan came on automatically with the bathroom light, and it was very noisy. It was a small, cramped room for 3 people and 2 dogs. The full-sized beds were very hard, and there was a lot of light in the room after the lights were out. There isn't a coffee maker in the room, but there is coffee and tea available in the lobby 24/7. The blanket was soft, the sheets were not. No alarm clock for those that need it. Plenty of outlets next to the beds for charging devices. The TV worked fine.

The worst thing, though, that made for one of the worst hotel nights ever, was that the AC quit working right after we went to bed. We tried multiple times throughout the night to get the unit to work, but it just glared at us with all of its lights on, only not blowing out any air. If the AC had just cooperated, it would have been a good stay. Obviously, we had picked Motel 6, so we could have put up with the small room and hard beds. Add in a stifling temperature, that's a deal breaker.

Room Tip: Stay on one of the upper floors since they put the travelers with dogs on the first floor.
