TripAdvisor Ratings

Rude staff & Multiple shootings.
November 01, 2019

I have stayed at Red Roof Inns for years. Staff usually friendly and accommodating. Well not here at Wilkes Barre. Staff is VERY rude. Have had several managers agree to late check out due to working night shifts with no problems. Again NOT HERE. I asked day time staff on multiple occasions if I can check out late on Sunday due to the fact that I didn't check in until 11:30 pm Friday to 12 am Saturday(so they have the opportunity to use the room until then). I also made reservations through the end of December so they are guaranteed that booking and still wouldn't budge and would be pounding on my door at 11am on the dot to kick me out and if I'm not out in 15 minutes they are pounding on my door again. (mind you I get in at 7:30am working nights). I then asked the night manager if they have late check outs and she said yes that I could check out at 2pm. I set the alarm in the room and was showered and making my first trip to my car by 2:03pm. Housekeeping was standing at the door waiting for me to come out and then locks the door behind me so I can't retrieve the rests of my belongings. I had had enough so I called corporate. Within two hours I got an email stating that I was banned from the property for supposedly insulting staff and urinating on the floor three weeks before I filed my complaint. So IF I actually did these things they wait three weeks to ban me? Probably because I called corporate to complain. Not to mention the multiple shootings. Just google it this place is not safe!

Adequate and Affordable Layover
October 22, 2019

The Red Roof Inn Wilkes-Barre Area was one of our stops on the recent New England road trip I took with my wife and 1-year old son. We basically just needed a layover from our first stretch of driving from Pittsburgh to Boston, and for under $50 a night, this couldn’t be beat. What we experienced was your basic Inn. It was perfectly adequate – the room was nicer than we expected for the price. The location was great and private too on the top of the hill. Unfortunately, there was no pool or continental breakfast, but for the price I’m not complaining. I see other reviews complaining about housekeeping not speaking English and crime activity/police presence at the Inn. We didn’t have any of that experience, but again it was just one night so who knows? Also thought it was really cool that this Inn is pet-friendly (under 80 lbs I believe). It was a pretty close drive to do some hiking at Seven Tubs Nature, grab a beer at Susquehanna Brewing Company, and get take out Thai at Jasmine, so overall a pretty good and affordable one-night stay in Wilkes-Barre.

Quiet & clean
October 19, 2019

After a long day of driving home from Portland to our home in White Marsh MD we decided to stopover for the night in PA but didn't want to spend a fortune so I found a room here on for $58 (same price on the Red Roof Inn site). We had our golden with us and he stayed for free plus they were even nice enough to give us a ground floor room which makes puppy potty breaks much easier. Our room was on the small side but perfect for us with a comfy king size bed and flat screen tv (you can opt for a room that has a fridge & microwave but we just needed a place to sleep). We were in Room 118 and it was very quiet and peaceful- never heard anyone beside or above us and the place was fairly full. We would definitely stay here again as we travel to PA often to visit friends

September 29, 2019

We checked out within 5 minutes of checking in. Our room smelled like marijuana and cigarette smoke. There were holes in the wall, chipped paint, writing all over the walls and the comforters were dirty. As we were walking to our car we saw someone walking around it looking inside. The woman at the front desk did offer to give us a different room but we had seen enough. By far the worst hotel we have ever been too. Do not stay here!!!

Sleeping with police present!!!
September 24, 2019

I spent my night here, with the police present above my room the entire night. There were 2 people shot in the room directly above me. I was never approached from an employee regarding changing rooms or anything of the sort. After the shooting and started following the story, it was brought to my attention that there are police either arresting someone or watching someone on a weekly basis at this location. I would have never selected this hotel if this information was readily available. This is a important piece of information when it comes to my life. I had a police officer approach me with their weapon draw because they received the call of gun shots and did not have any clue where this person was when they approached me. Very frightening.
