Went here because it is pet friendly. Though it's easily recognizable from the road to get there requires a minor jaunt down a culdesac road - typical. Nice location, place was clean, price was reasonable, personnel was friendly, and matches preceding write-ups to a T.

We stayed because there were literally no other rooms anywhere in Wilkes-Barre. We needed to stop on the way home from our vacation for the night. It’s clean enough. It’s very sparse. The beds are hard and uncomfortable. The shower wasn’t even hot. It was better than sleeping in our car with our kids though.

Would not stay here again. Very loud! No manager on duty after 10 pm people out at fire pit area all hours of the night. Called front desk and person at desk said they should calm down out there by 1 am Mam. Are you kidding me 1 am?? What kind of hotel says that I’m a paying customer paying top dollar and I’m brushed off like that!!!! Not let me look into it or I’ll ask them to quiet down but they should calm down by 1 am!! mind you this was midnight when I finally called because I could hear the people by this darn fire pit over the TV in my room!!Typically I stay at Marriott but I Would not recommend this hotel!

We were on our way home from a trip to Cape Cod and needed a place to spend the night as we were very tired. This Motel 6 was just perfect. The bed was comfortable and everything was very clean. The shower in the morning was great with lots of hot water. If we are passing through again we will be sure to stay here.

nice enough place but why pay to stay in a room when you can stay for free in your car in the parking lot like so many others? youre ultimately paying for a night of sleeplessness wondering if your car will be broken into for the change in your cupholder or even worse, the tools you use to earn your living. as the posted signs clearly state, no one is responsible for damages to your vehicle in spite of you giving them money in exchange for safety and security which makes it a virtual target and an easy one at that. especially if youre unfortunate enough to unwittingly check into the kind of establishment where the employees are actually working with the crooks who are robbing the guests as in my case at days inn wyndham in orangeburg south carolina on october 5th of this year when my trailer and atv were stolen as the front desk clerk used the security cameras to stand watch for the theives as they robbed me as i slept. they also had a third accomplice in the neighboring room who was able to tell the crooks when i was sleeping by simply lifting the drop ceiling tile from their bathroom and peeking into my room over the space where a firewall shouldve existed but did not. when i inquired with the young woman at the front desk of this motel 6 about the carloads of people in their lot who id been watching for several hours and pointed out that they were not guests here i was greeted with attitude as if i were overstepping my bounds and crossing a line. not very professional or comforting when i feel my concerns are legitimate and should be addressed. i didnt come here to worry about who they allow to hang out in their parking lot all night and i dont think it's fair that i should have to worry about safety and security. dont leave anything of value in your car and watch over your shoulder when entering or exiting your vehicle here because the conditions are ideal for criminal activity at motel 6 in wilkes barre pa and the staff has made it abundantly so with their seemingly lack of regard.
