We travel periodically to the Pocono mountains and overnight in the Wilkes Barre - Scranton area. We get in late and leave early, so we don't want to spend a lot of money just to sleep and shower, but have had trouble finding a suitable place in this area. I read the reviews of the Econolodge and decided to try it. We were not disappointed.
The Econolodge is conveniently located to Interstate 81; there is sufficient parking, and we felt safe. The lobby is clean and inviting, and the staff, if not particularly friendly, were very efficient. We were very satisfied with our room. The room was very clean, well supplied, and had a microfridge. The beds are a little small, but the bedding was clean, and the towels were thin, but not worn or stained - it's an Econolodge, not the Ritz. A small breakfast with eggs and toast, cereal and pastries, as well as juice and coffee was served in the hospitality room, which accommodated the breakfast crowd quite nicely. An attendant kept everything stocked and cleaned up. After some of the experiences we have had in this area, it was great to finally find a clean, safe, and inviting place in our price range. We will definitely stay here again next time we vacation in the Poconos.More
