I've never been to Wilkes Barre and I'm a little overwhelmed by all the hotel options. I'd like to stay in a hotel that is central and gives me good sense of what Wilkes Barre is like. I'd love to know where locals tell their friends to stay when they visit, and why those areas and hotels are special. thanks!
There are a lot of hotels. There is a new hotel at the Casino that you will have access to great restaurants right on site. There are also a lot of hotels near the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza . Those are close to shopping and lots of chain restaurants.
