We stayed here just for one night following a strenuous hike in the Ricketts Glen Park and the hotel was exactly what we needed. Super clean room, soft, comfortable bed, spacious, brightly lit bathroom with a hard-to-leave shower. Loved that we could connect our Netflix account to the TV. Free coffee in the morning and access to the gym were nice add-ons.

This is my first hotel stay since COVID-19 pandemic started and I can say that this hotel met my expectations and beyond. In both safety and sanitation. The hotel was friendly and knowledgeable. They answered all my questions and dressed any concerns I had. The room and bathroom was nice and updated. Like I said I loved the staff and there friendliness. Awesome job!

And choose the Marriott, since I am a “Marriott guy”. It was a really nice Marriott Courtyard. It was relatively new (within the past 6 years or so). The thing that was amazing about this Courtyard was the shower (really). It had a walk-in shower with a small lip (so you did not have the enter and exit via a bathtub). Also, the water controls were towards the back of the shower enclosure, so you could regulate the water flow and temperature without scalding (or freezing) yourself. You may scoff at this, but I have the same arrangement in my home in Rancho Mirage, CA. It is great. I wanted to do the same for my house in Long Beach, but the cost was prohibitive. Too bad. Anyway, this Courtyard is freeway adjacent and a short drive into town. A great place to stay in the Wilkes-Barre area.
