EconoLodge Arena
Ranked #10 of 21 Hotels in Wilkes-Barre
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 August 2017

After no vacancies at several hotels we stopped at Econo Lodge in Wilkes-Barre and got the last room. We were quite surprised at how clean and comfortable it was. It was late and were tired of driving so being able to walk a few steps to Perkins Restaurant which included a 10% discount, very convenient. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Elevator is close to front door

Our king suite was clean and spacious, with updated amenities such as lamps with power outlets, and was a bargain at the lowest Rewards Night "price" possible in Choice Privileges points. Front desk staff was friendly, even giving us bottled water at checkout. This property is well maintained. The breakfast area is larger than it appears when viewed from the lobby because there is an adjacent room with additional tables. A waffle maker is included which I believe is above minimum breakfast requirements for the Econolodge brand, and decaf tea, not always found at hotels, was available and appreciated. One minor complaint is the cushions on the sofa and chair were too soft.

Front desk manager was very helpful but this place is by no means a 4 star. We did not get a room with flooring as others reviewed. instead a smelly dirty rug. Entire property was dingy. Glad it was only a one night stay.

Room Tip: insist on a rug free room

It was a very nice place. Was not expecting the room to be as nice as it was. I loved that there was flooring and not carpeting. The room was really clean. The staff was really nice. I went to the breakfast area in the morning and only found waffles to eat. Everything else was cold. I went to Perkins Restaurant which is in front of the hotel. I got 10% off my order when I showed them my room card.

The front desk attendant was very nice, I spoke to him on the phone for directions because my GPS had the hotel misplaced by two miles (GPS error, not hotel's). The hotel has a cute tradition of leaving a mini rubber ducky in each room.

The double room was a good size, with a microwave and mini fridge. The bedding and pillows were new, clean, and comfy. The wifi was good. Lots of channel choices on the TV. Bathroom and towels were clean and well stocked. The AC worked well. Plenty of power outlets, including USB ports. The only negative thing I would say about the room itself was that it had a faint odor, like it used to be a smoking room even though it's now non-smoking.

The complimentary breakfast had plenty of options: cereal, yogurt, bagels, toast, apples, and a waffle maker. Instead of the typical prefab scrambled eggs, they had hard-boiled eggs in the fridge. Breakfast staff was also very friendly.

The EconoLodge Arena was a good value for the money. I would definitely stay there again.
