Enjoyable, comfortable stay with Best Western Plus in Wilkes-Barre

Dear Guy, You asked in your comments - what do other guests see when they review our hotel? They see a well established downtown hotel with a walkability of 92. They see traditional, clean decor with quality fabric that does not consist of just bright colors and plastic cookie cutter hotels. They see extra amenities like refrigerators, microwaves, pillowtop beds, 4 pillows for each bed (2 soft, 2 hard), excellent wireless connection, books to read on the night stand, quality pillows and towels, and great HOT showers with a high quality shower head. AND, most importantly, to set the tone of each guests stay, a Rubber Duckie of your very own, greeting you as you enter the bathroom. They enjoy a free, great breakfast buffet with friendly attendants. Finally, they see a family owned and run hotel unlike any found along the highways today, where the owner often greets and shakes the hands of the guests as they are check in or leaving. We're truly sorry you missed all that :(

Dear Traveler, Thank you for taking the time to review our property and for all of your details. We're sorry you didn't have the best experience and are a little concerned about your comments regarding the staff and the Internet. We usually receive rave reviews about our friendly staff and service so "for the most part" is a little concerning. Additionally, if you let us know which room you were in, we could have our IT guy check out the router for the Internet to make sure there are no issues. It should not be spotty. Thank you again for your details. We're glad to hear your stay went well over all and that you would come back to see us if the opportunity were to arise. Best, Gus Genetti
