The flags are flown incorrectly to start with, US is always highest flown on American soil. The front desk clerk speaks very softly, I think to hide an accent. Carpets and hallways stink and restaurant is closed completely, has been for a while apparently. Room appeared clean although there were some areas that certainly could be cleaned a lot better...

To begin, I should mention that we typically stay in a Hampton Inn level hotel. The Scranton Econo Lodge was our first experience at an Econo Lodge. I must say I was kind of disappointed. We recently stayed in a 1960s hotel that was cleaner and in better repair, although never upgraded, than this Econo Lodge. When we exited I-81,... More

My friends and I stayed here last summer and were very disappointed. It's a bit dirty and worn out. The beds weren't comfortable and it seemed as though there were shady activities happening in some of the other rooms. i wouldn't go back.

I must say, when I pulled into the Econo Lodge in Scranton I almost turned around and immediately left, forfeiting my $49.99 rate that I had already paid. We were on a cross-country roadtrip and looking for a simple highway-side motel to catch a few z’s in on our trip. When we realized we would make it to Scranton for... More

This place is cheap, but you get what you pay for. The rooms are clean. This hotel needs a major renovation. The beds are comfy and the linens clean. The room had a fresh coat of paint. The tv was new. The continental breakfast was cold cereal, pre packaged muffins and toast. The hallways were depressing. There are no restaurants... More

I am a little upset with this hotel. My boyfriend lives out of town, and he chose this place because it was cheap and he was only staying one night. I will admit, it was clean and it was great for a bed and a shower. However, the bed was not comfortable at all, so if you are planning to... More

Just needed a place to sleep, and we have a pet. I wish the continental breakfast had been a little better, but it was clean and had a fridge/microwave.
