Have stayed here several times. Easy access to Highway. Free breakfast is good. Ask for tower room on back side away from road it can get a little noisy. Staff is always helpful. Good parking right out front.

We were on our way home from Virginia and stopped in for a night. We loved it! The kids loved the pool and hot tub which were clean and the restaurants were great. My husband has a gluten allergy and the chef came out and made sure everything was great. The rooms were so clean. We would absolutely go back!!

My husband, daughter and I stayed at the Woodlands recently (July 2013). Everything was perfect -- the front desk staff, the room, the beds, the view, and the sumptuous breakfast buffet. Great value and a nice, quiet, clean place to stay in the Wyoming Valley.
