Joe Pakuris

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this bed-and-breakfast The house is one of the most amazing houses I’ve ever been inside of and the attention to detail Is second to none I stayed in the Amelia room which is stunning and for the price we paid it was the best deal I think I’ve ever gotten for a place to stay at the level this was

The owner and operator is on site his name is Joe and he is personable and will show you around the house I spent hours just walking around and looking at all the antiques that are in this house We stayed here and went to the casino and a concert for four days I would definitely come back and recommend this place and give it five stars I’m a tough critic and I was very very impressed with my stay here

ANTHONY CARRIER

We went there for a tour of the mansion We had a lovely lunch and wonderful desserts We also sampled a couple of Stegmaier beers a great tasting IPA and a spirited Pumpkin Spice, yummy! We also sampled their chef made dark chocolate sea salt caramels

Staff was friendly and helpful We were entertained by a barbershop quartet The mansion’s owner was friendly and knowledgeable about the mansion’s history and the Stegmaier family’s beer and brewery history Very ornate inside, more like eye candy It’s also a bed and breakfast Plan to return there in the future to stay overnight Highly recommend Constant Traveler

Janet Smith

This mansion is a must see if you are anywhere near Joe took years to renovate every detail from the antique furniture to the painted ceilings It is a step back in time to a period of ice-cream socials and afternoon teas, with the elite

Joe put his heart and soul into this project and it shows in every detail Don’t miss the chance to see and stay in one of the cozy bedrooms and enjoy the amazing food and service It is an experience you will treasure for years to come

Clean and comfy beds Big bathroom and shower The bar of soap they have here smells incredibly good

Check-in was easy Pool looked very inviting although it was only open until 10pm (we got here at 9:45) and we honestly were very tired anyhow It does open at 8am which is nice it’s open early Lots of outlets in room Lots of channels on TV to choose from Staff were very pleasant and explained the breakfast, fitness room and pool hours

Taylor King

Stayed at the Hampton for the night of our wedding The room was huge! There were some small amenities that really stood out like the make up remover towelette which I had forgottenThey have a small snack stand at the welcome desk – unfortunately not a variety of every day medications

Only other downfall was the pillows The bed itself was super comfy but the pillows were extremely flat even with using two of themThe staff was super nice and the complimentary breakfast and coffee was delicious Would definitely stay here again Unfortunately didnt get to check out the pool as we did not check in until almost 11

Tracie Saunders

When we arrived we found the place to be well maintained and the inside to be very clean The lobby is very warm, especially for it to be a summer day they had it too warm inside which made waiting for help at the desk unpleasant But it is pretty here and they provide cool water in the lobby

Our room is pretty and clean LOTS of closet and storage space,and a small kitchen!! I was not terribly happy to return to our hotel after dark to find the parking lot completely dark!!! I’m with my daughter and as 2 females in an unfamiliar area this was a bit scary So I spoke to the lady at the desk and she had no idea why they weren’t on after 9pm and when I asked if there was a way to get them on her response was “I don’t know, it’s my first day back” And she wasn’t terribly friendly but I felt bad for her However, I will say when I had to go out to my car a mere 10 minutes later the lot lights were on, so someone knew what to do The pool and exercise rooms look clean although small Overall I think I would reccomend this place just for the rooms alone so far We will try the breakfast in the morning

Camille Dickinson

The best thing about this place is the location Several restaurants around, a movie theater and a small mall But save yourself the hassle and book with one of the other hotels

The rooms are badly maintained The wall next to the door had a hole in it – looks like someone slammed the door into it The bathroom had bad patch jobs on the wall with peeling tape The toilet seat was stained But the cherry on top was Tatiana at the front When we checked in on the Saturday, she acted as if it was the biggest inconvenience in the world Like we were actually bothering her by asking her to do her job And her attitude carried over to the next day when we were checking out Check out is at 11 And I understand that We asked if it could be pushed to noon, first because I wasn’t feeling well and we had a long drive ahead of us and I wanted to be sure that I wouldn’t get car sick Second because Gold and above members do get late check outs And we were only asking for an hour That didn’t suit Miss Tatiana who was rude and yelled at my better half for even daring to ask for a courtesy that he’s entitled to I’d say she needs a bit more training but there are other reviews that refer to the rude front desk So perhaps she needs a whole new career If this is the kind of service that Marriott condones, then quite frankly I’m all for giving up the Marriot Credit Card and switching loyalty to some other chain

Jessica Samyn

This place was awful for a Marriot We arrive at the hotel around 9pm , the lady was chatting on her phone Place was no clean at all

The towel at the pool were everywhere, none were clean Dogs were at the pool I had to advise the reception Wifi and TV were not working I trying calling the reception many many times , no answer Room were very dirty, hair in the tub, window very dirty Morning breakfeast was sausage, bacon and egg Coffee was awful I paid 356$ usd the nigh , they charge me 515$ cdn I ask to speak the manager it’s been 2 days and nobody called me I called back today they told me manager is not there I am dissapointed in the service for that expensive for the hotel

Decent hotel to get a good night’s rest, wasn’t impressed with breakfast at all so much so I decided to skip it the next day, because to be honest that’s you look forward to when you wake up is to have some fresh scrambled eggs with sausages and bacon but that wasn’t the case We didn’t get to use the pool because it was closed for maintenance and nobody knew when it would reopen so that was a big disappointment Nonetheless we went to a water park 25 minutes away and had fun there

So the stay was okHowever we had a 9mm pistol come up missing from the room on our last night there conveniently after letting house keeping In to make the bed I’m not accusing anyone but still

do the mathUPDATE 12822 Roz the manager contacted me in regards to this theft Her rude personality right off the jump let me know that she has no business working in the hospitality industry After I explained to her that I am the victim here she became irate and advised that a theft of a handgun has only happened 3x in 5 years Well, that seems excessive Furthermore after it became apparent that she was not on the side of justice I disconnected the call With in 5 minutes she showed up at my place of employment (pulling the info from my previous stay) and had to be threatened with trespass and police interaction to leave I can not believe you are in any position of authority Roz and a formal complaint is being filed I’d find any other hotel in the area besides this one

Ashley Bryant

TERRIBLEAs soon as we arrived paying 137$ for a room for One night I expected far more!As soon as we walked into the room the smell was absolutely insane It smelt like

Dirty, wet, feet Dog idk it was discusting Then shortly after our SIX year old found GLASS Yes, GLASS in the bedI called the front desk explaining everything, she was brief saying she couldn’t do anything about it however she would let her manager know They couldn’t give us another room or help us in any way

35 stars Overall nice, clean hotel

Decent sized rooms And you get what you pay for Staff was friendly, attentive and wanted to help We had some issues with our room with one of showers not having hot water and the lock to the internal door (to second room) was broken – both these could not be fixed as the maintenance staff does not seem on site (during the evenings)-we were only here for a night Breakfast was average for a hotel this size

K M

This is THE best place to stay in the area, especially if you are visiting Montage Mountain for work or play! I can’t remember the last time i was so attentively cared for as a guest Every staff member is outstanding in their customer service and gracious to all Everything was perfect and i felt so valued as a customer

I will stay here every time I return to the area!

Teen kids from Jersey stayed there also and were banging on guest doors all hours of the nightCalled front desk and they said they would send someone up to checkAfter 5 minutes desk called and said when they checked they didn’t see anything wrong

Called local pd but kept waitingHotel did nothing to help, and lied about sending up to check I waited in hall and no one from hotel came to checkVery disappointed in their lack of concern and will not stay there again I had been using this hotel at least 4 or more times a yearStay elsewhere

Had a bad experience at another hotel and left the same day within a couple of minutes of being there Just booked another hotel in a couple of minutes and went to the hotel The lady at the front desk was very kind

Went up to my room and the room was very nice and it was clean It has like a hidden mini fridge, microwave, and ice bucket which I liked cause it wasn’t in the way and didn’t take up more room The bathroom was clean and there was lots of towels and wash clothes The tv was in a mount so you could turn to watch it while sitting on the bed 10/10 would recommend and would come back if in the area again Hotel is in a convenient area

Nydia B

The hotel is beautiful and in an awesome location! My issue is the lack of care by some on the staff and management We had an issue during our stay we brought it to the attention of the clerk who DID NOTHING

I called and asked for a manager, this is the kicker, the manager answered and identified herself by name and asked how could she help me I said yes, I have been trying to reach you This lady said, please hold a second Not to long after a clerk picks up and says, the manager is not available and won’t be until the next day I was so shocked and get this 3 weeks later this property still have my small incidental charge being held I definitely upstream this with proof of everything that took place and the lack of addressing the issue It may not happen today or tomorrow but, it’s coming! To pretend to not be at work in hopes of not dealing with an issue is horrible and this manager needs Coaching!

Ryan

The room was clean on our arrival and the staff is very niceWe typically stay at Marriotts when we travel Our room this time has the most uncomfortable bed I’ve ever slept on in my life

The extra firm mattress woke both of us multiple times in the night and we both woke up with back and shoulder pain

Terri Gerhardt

We reserved a room in this hotel, because we were just passing through Wilkes-Barre We did not need fancy amenities, just a clean room and quiet nights sleep This hotel DID NOT meet the bill

This hotel is aged, has holes in the walls (not because they are remodeling), and is definitely not quiet The breakfast was lack luster The hard boiled eggs that were served tasted like they were possibly frozen and defrosted Not goodThe people working there were nice and tried to provide good customer serviceThe cutsomer service did not make up for the facilityIf you are planning on staying in Wilkes-Barre you will want to choose a different hotel

Richard Cassidy

I was very disappointed in the fact that there was hair in the bes from the first room we went into and then the 2nd room smelled like cigarette smoke I usually don’t complain but to have 2 rooms in a row and due to my allergies it was a rough day We did not stay and thankfully found a hotel that was clean odor free and I had no reaction

Hospitality is also about sanitation as there are many like myself that have severe allergies and we should not have to be afraid of places we make reservations for a good night’s sleep

Cecelia & Gordon were excellent host & hostess! They were very patient when I kept calling to say I was running later, and later, for my arrival When I finally got there, Gordon helped me with my bags and Cecelia even found a nearby restaurant for me to get a late supper, just before they closed the kitchenThe house was lovely, and my room was clean, pretty, and had some thoughtful touches

Breakfast was delicious and served with style, complete with china, crystal, and my homemade muffin was served straight out of a piping hot cloth napkinI had some special needs, and Cecelia & Gordon were very accommodating My stay was for one night, only, but I wish I could have stayed longer, to relax, explore, and appreciate everything that Hillard House, and Wilkes-Barre, has to offer I will, happily, stay here again, if ever I return to the area Thank you, Cecelia & Gordon, for making things so easy and comfortable!

Chris Lopez

We had a lovely one night stay in the suite The house is full of lovely details to stop and appreciate The walls of this high ceiling house include many period prints, awards, and cross stitches

There is even a fun little elevator that took our bags upThe hosts are helpful and welcoming The breakfast they provided was brought out in well timed courses that let you enjoy each Breakfast was served in darling peacock chinaGreat spot to stay if you are in town for a show or to visit a college

Ray Moy

Our stay with Cecelia & Gordon was an amazing time We celebrated an anniversary there and the house was immaculate and very cozy The suite we booked was much larger than we expected and was such a great value

Our time was short as we only stayed one night Despite this, we loved utilizing the very deep tub with the jets My partner and I are both very tall and we were able to both sit very comfortably in the tub with plenty of room to spare! The breakfast served was delicious and we left full I highly recommend staying here if in the area!

Fun and convenient casino to visit! Joe a Roulette table dealer is the bomb 🤩 he’s the absolute best to really have a good time with!! Restaurants are all delicious, but you need to make reservations The cooking show through the Rustic Kitchen is also a blast too!! W a group or not! Highly recommend making a reservation there, it’s a show you need to experience that at least once it’s a lot of fun and wine is generously paired and served with each course!!! 😍

Rock King

It’s pretty sad now The racing side is abandoned The rest rooms were filthy

Floors were badly in need of cleaning and urine smell was overwhelming 😫 The drinking fountains were still turned off for some reason Drink service was pitiful if you could even find a server Valet service no longer offered I don’t understand what happened Covid!? I’m sick of that being used as an excuse for everything BTW they never paid out much at the slots but they should be ashamed of the lack of winners I was here all day on a Tuesday and never heard anything positive from any patrons and no one was winning much of anything Just feeding bills into machines and if you get a bonus it payed like 500 max

Kendralove813 “Kendralove813”

Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs is amazing! If you visit for the day, there are many slots and table games to keep you happy and entertained Definitely get a momentum card so you can get credits to use for future visits Becoming a member also gives you the opportunity to get a free or discounted room in the hotel

The hotel is Beautiful, the rooms are awesome The decor alone makes you feel like a million bucks The customer service is always on point and they really are there to help in any way they can I have never had a bad experience with the casino or hotel I highly recommend checking it out The restaurants are also soooo delicious! It’s truly top quality

The staff here were absolutely amazing! They were so accommodating, so friendly, and so willing to help I really cannot recommend this hotel enough I regretfully did not book a block for my wedding and still had the majority of my guests stay at this hotel from out of town

In hindsight I wish I would’ve just booked my entire wedding here They were the most wonderful memory of my wedding They made every single person feel welcome Aside from that the breakfast is excellent, the bar is wonderful! And the Starbucks in the lobby is just a wonderful addition

Shane

Probably the hest hotel in Scranton The hotel is well located near the center of downtown with lots of restaurants & bars within walking distance The rooms are spacious, comfortable, & up to date

The staff are a pleasure to deal with & very helpful in every way The hotel restaurant has a few good menu items while most are average in my opinion The hotel bar has a large selection of whiskey & bourbon available at decent prices as well

Nick Betz

Nothing special Lobby has been decorated very nicely Their breakfast is good and you can get made to ordereggs/pancakes/french toast but it’ll cost you $15/person

The room I was in was surprisingly dirty for the Hilton brand name As soon as I walked in, I smelled the musty smell and it was very humid Bathrooms could use a good deep cleaning There was a red stain on the carpet next to the bathroom, which wasn’t a huge deal but spoke volumes to the lack of attention to detail and cleanliness of the roomWould I stay here again? Highly doubtful

Tina Kopilchack

Great stay! While looking for a room I found so many negative reviews I know Covid has been hard on businesses and there were pictures to back a lot of the bad reviews up so I didn’t have high hopes I’m a loyal Marriott fan so I figured I’d fare the best with a Marriott hotel and I’m glad I did

Other than having an odd location behind another hotel, everything was great! The young lady at the front desk was very friendly and professional; the hotel was nice; the room was clean and modern so no complaints about anything there The housekeeping staff only left one bar of soap so we had to use the same one from the sink for the shower but could have asked for another one Breakfast items were well stocked and had a great variety The only negative I had was that the gentleman who was helping there was cleaning the waffle maker and would then blow on it to get crumbs off – not sanitary at all Otherwise we were extremely happy with our stay, would recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here again if needed!

Henry Long

For what it was, not half bad Kids enjoyed it Front desk awesome service, especially Meta

Could use a good, professional deep clean Pool and hot tub nice but in need of maintenance (loose handrails all around) The whole “No Local Rentals” things kind of weird I get it—It’s Wilkes-Barre But talk about disdain for your community Support the local economy, yes, but don’t let the community stay here? Is that even Legal? Also, don’t eat here Just don’t The “cook” said she makes the eggs “with love” and “prays over the food” That’s probably a good idea

Eric Ledgerwood

We arrived on a Fri morning at 9am after having to leave our previous hotel due to a truly horrible experience Not only were they able to provide us a room for the next two days, they upgraded us to a suite & we were able to get in right then at 9am They even offered my family breakfast! This is the Marriott experience we’ve come to know & love over the last 15 yrs of being rewards members

This saved our long weekend getaway and we still got the kids to the waterpark on time Thanks a Mil Mercedes!!

Firstly I commend the front desk staff (morning & night) for their commitment to customer service as well as the housekeeping staff for keeping the rooms so cleanThe rooms were perfect, if this hotel was in NYC or Philly it’d be way more expensive per night I was super happy with its close proximity to the FM Kirby center, we could just walk right through the little bus stop, through the alley, and we’re right there at the marquee

Breakfast was alright, not bad for a free buffet There’s a lot of things nearby, like the Boscov’s right through the bus stop alley which is handy in case you forgot anything The next day we were able to go to great outdoor locations for mild hikes in Nay Aud Park, Seven Tubs, and Hawk Falls

My husband spent 2 nights here to celebrate our 3rd anniversary and it was by far the best time We travel a lot out of state and have stayed at many different places But this is our top place so far

The people checking us in were so pleasant and super friendly We ate at the Japanese restaurant and it was the best we have ever had from the service to the food Room was very clean and smelled amazing The area is beautiful and calm We recommend this place to anyone just looking to relax

Great surprise Didn’t expect much for our one night stay but the location is great by the little river Food was ok, both pool were nice

Decor a little 90’s There was no weird smell you would expect from a hotel of this age Room was clean, staff friendly Breakfast included was a good surprise before hitting the road again Will definitely stop by again if we drive this way again

Our room was clean and for the price we were happy Breakfast every morning, with options of their on site restaurants We had our youngest with us, so we loved the family friendly environment

We did see an area for corn hole and an additional pool We lost a phone and the front desk and GM were helpful in shipping it to us We would stay here again

Right in the resort area of the city has a great location right off 81 and a beautiful spot Service is outstanding here, very welcoming Rooms are clean and quiet

It’s really and exemplary Hampton Inn and what I expect of a Hilton chain I highly recommend it for a stopover (which I did here) and also extended stay Free coffee in lobby and plenty of snacks to purchase Beautiful lobby

We have stayed at this hotel several times and it’s consistently well maintained, convenient, pet friendly with helpful friendly staff This trip we accidentally left an article and 30 minutes later when we discovered our oversight I called the front desk, the clerk immediately sent the housekeeping supervisor up to the room The article was found and placed in the safe for us to retrieve on our return trip

We were so thankful for the immediate action
