Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 195 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel We stayed here for 4 nights while visiting family in the area. This was our 2nd stay at the Holiday Inn and we were not disappointed. The hotel is clean and updated, the rooms are great, very spacious, clean with comfortable beds. The kids loved swimming in the pool and hot tub. The complimentary breakfast buffet in the AM is very convenient and the happy hour during the week is a nice touch too. We will always stay here when visiting Scranton. August 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and location The bed was extremely comfortable, the hotel was clean and looks fairly new. It was just a little difficult to location by GPS as the access was not on that street. Other than the driveway location it was wonderful. August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 comfortable bed and great service was impressed by the courteous and friendly front desk staff. the hotel was clean and neat above many other hotel stays we have enjoyed. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by one of the best HIE properties I've stayed in I highly recommend this property. The lighting paint colors and furniture made it very relaxing and comfortable. Comfortable. The scenery outside was also very nice. Great fitness center as well. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and comfortable bed. Great location, surrounded by many restaurants. Rooms clean and comfortable. August 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Hotel and excellent service! Hotel seems brand new, clean & fresh. Beautiful large rooms with comfortable beds and furniture. Hard to find using the GPS but worth it! August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice experience Super staff, great facility. Super clean room, pool area and breakfast area. We enjoyed our stay very much. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean Hotel This was one of the cleanest hotels My family and I ever stayed at. If you are looking for a hotel in this area we highly recommend this one. August 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New very modern hotel Great hotel. Very new modern and very well decorated. Staff very nice, breakfast was a pleasure ( would have liked the western omelet on offer at other Holiday inns ) but plenty of other great choices . Only negative would be finding the road into the hotel ( it's a little further away from the hotel itself and leads back through a developing construction area , also the nearest restaurants ( walking distance ) were only accessible if you hiked up a very steep hill behind the hotel in the dark with no pathways / security. Not a problem for me but a lone female would probably not attempt it . I walked as I wanted to have a drink and did not want to drive after having a drink. I imagine the new construction in front of the hotel might contain a restraunt when it's completed . If you were driving there was a great choice of places to dine within 1/2 mile. I would stay again if in the area. August 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stays! We stayed twice at this HI-X on the way to and from a vacation in Maine. It was convenient to the Interstate(s) and provided us with an excellent experience. Friendly staff, nice clean rooms, quiet, near many restaurants. A bit difficult for our GPS to find but look for it down the hill. The manager has twice weekly receptions. Highly recommended! August 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Enjoyed everything about the staty but especially was impressed with the front desk night clerk names Jocelyn. Please recognize her for me. August 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Breakfast The eggs and meats were cold each morning. I would prefer a warm breakfast. August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Second stay I first stayed at this hotel 2 years ago. On this most recent stay, I saw no difference in the hotel. It still seemed brand new. It is very well maintained and the staff is and was very helpful and friendly. They even helped our group of 12 with transportation into Scranton? July 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay This hotel is one of the best places I have ever stayed. The rooms are comfortable, quiet and relaxing. I can't say enough about the staff they are fantastic. July 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet and comfortable We chose Holiday Inn Express for our stay as we visited family in the area. The room was great and the pancake machine was a hit with my 2 year old grandson! July 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overall satisfied I went to visit family, and was able to relax and enjoy the stay. This was just the getaway needed. And everything provided helped to melt away the stress of work and life for the weekend. The staff was very friendly, and rooms clean and comfy. The location could not be beat when it comes to travel to local attractions. Would highly recommend. July 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rail riders game I thought this was a nice hotel. A little difficult try to get to the parking lot. ( exit was not well marked, about a half mile away) Went to see the Yanks AAA team. July 23, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Disapointed Never cleaned the room. No fresh towels. The dining was great. The check in and out was quick and easy. The only disapointing part was not having the room cleaned for this stay. I stayed at this very hotel last year for the same amount of time and the service for cleaning the room was excellant. July 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Hotel I have stayed in most of the hotels in the Wilkes-Barre and Scranton for work and this is by far the best hotel. The staff is incredible. July 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very clean and nice hotel This hotel is well maintained and has a very friendly staff. July 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful Stay at Holiday Inn - Dickson City Great hotel. Called hotel to let them know we would be arriving late and asked for extra towels (restaurant in area spilled drinks on my husband). Upon arrival front desk staff was very friendly and asked if there was anything else they could do. We were original put on the first floor but asked to be moved to 2nd floor due to needing the washer/dryer. Front desk called us to see if we still needed extra towels since they put in first floor room. Beds were great - pillows a little soft - but most hotel pillows are not what people have at home. Hotel was very quite and got a great nights sleep. Room was clean and bright. Breakfast was good. Lot of variety from eggs, bagels, cereal, waffles, pancakes, yogurt, fruit. Could use more gluten free items since my daughter has gluten allergy. no problem will bill or checking out. Will definitely be staying there again. July 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What a Great Staff the place was clean , the beds were unbelievable, the pool was clean, the food was great, but most of all the staff was top notch in every way!!! July 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Another relaxing night While having a productive meeting the following day, I actually said :"I did stay at the Holiday Inn last night". July 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleasant experience We came out from NJ for a 4th of July concert. The place was very quiet and relaxing. A pleasant stay. Would go back again. July 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay Was a nice hotel for my purpose. I enjoyed my stay July 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Stay! This is my 3rd time staying at this hotel and the steller service continues. The managers reception was great, especially while working on the patio. I have nothing to say negatively about this hotel and will continue to stay here as I travel to PA 2 x per month. Great Stay! July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome all around This was one of the best stays I have had in a while. My wife was with me on this trip and also enjoyed our few days here. We thought it was a brand new building and then learned it was 3 years old. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Overall a wonderful experience. I will be staying here whenever possible. Ty for a wonderful experience. Pearl again it was a pleasure meeting you. It's great to see a manager that is willing to listen to customers. June 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Did not want handicap room Everything was great except they gave me a handicap room without first asking. The shower was not good June 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better than expected. We often stay at a Holiday Inn Express. This was the nicest. It was not easy to find, however. There is a real lack of directional signage along the highway. I had to stop at a Dunkin Donuts to ask for directions. The hotel was worth the search, but in spite of it's niceness I believe it was overpriced for Scranton, PA. It is the most I have spent on a Holiday Inn Express and as nice as the Inn was I wouldn't spend the money for it again. June 26, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Understaffed and Unorganized Nice new hotel, looks great upon first impressions - but lack of staff and experience was evident. June 25, 2014
