This is the best Best Western we have experienced. Service was great and rooms were updated and very clean! The breakfast was buffet style and much better than average. Our room was quiet and the complimentary happy hour was great! Chris was extremely professional as we checked in at the front desk. We will definitely be coming back!

Visit Misericordia University so we decided for an overnight here. Staff were very friendly as we pulled in at nearly 9:30 at night, tired and hungry. Ordered from the restaurant on sight - great burger and fries - very friendly staff again! Breakfast was a delight a eggs,bacon, sausage, French toast, sweet breads and yummy coffee. That was a surprise...

Maureen, Thank you for another wonderful review of our property. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and appreciate all of your compliments.

This hotel is the best we've stayed at in years. Beautiful decor, friendly/helpful staff, great room. Old world elegance at a modest price. We highly recommend it as the place to stay in northeastern Pennsylvania. Its restaurant, Oyster, has excellent food and good service. We ate all meals there. Server, Michael, was especially helpful and attentive.

Spent one night here. The hotel is just a two minute walk to the city square where there are numerous eating and retail options. The staff was excellent and caring. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. The complementary breakfast was awesome. Great place to stay while in Wilkes-Barre.

We stay at BW hotels regularly. We stayed at this one in January, 2017, and, because of our experience, stopped here again in May, 2017. The room was in great shape, providing a great evening of comfortable rest. Breakfast options and food quality was perhaps the best of any BW where we have stayed......actually, no other hotel where we have...

You are literally attached to the FM Kirby Center. Out the side door, you see the tour buses where the performing artists park. Nice room, great breakfast, adequate internet service which could be slow at times.

I look forward to our stay at Ginetti's to and from Florida. Quality at every level and a wonderful restaurant so we don't have to get in the car again. Excellent breakfast to start us on the next 600 miles.
