I stay at The Inn at Nichols Village for the Massage!
I discovered The Inn at Nichols Village while in Scranton on business. I have stayed at other hotels in the area but come back to this place because of the Massage Center! James Hambrick the Masseur is the best! What a great way to end your day! I have had massage all over the world and I must say this makes the trip worth while! I would have come just for the massage if business did not bring me to Scranton.
Although the hotel is on a main drag once you are in the complex the grounds are great; as a jogger I appreciated the run through the property!
The food at the Fire Grill was good, it is a relaxing atmosphere and there are several other restaurants and pub style places in the Clarks Summit area that I have enjoyed. The rooms are very nice with wireless internet.
Not What I Expected From The Name.......
We stayed at the Inn at Nichols Village the first week in Nov. We'd never been to Scranton, but it's close proximity to the Poconos led us to believe that from the name, the "Inn at Nichols Village" would be a quaint little inn in a small town atmosphere ~ so, when we arrived at the motor hotel on the main strip in Clarks Summit, we were definitely surprised! This motel is adequate and a short stay, nothing fancy but clean and utilitarian.
New rooms - Applewood/Presdential Lovely! Old rooms - need a refresh!
We stayed at here for 2 nights mid August 2006. I had booked the room on Priceline, and originally thought it might be able to snag it for around the $40 mark, unfortunately there was a PGA tournament on in the vincinity and the officials were staying at the hotel. I ended up paying $50. Still not to bad I might say.
I think due to the fact it was paid through Priceline, we were initially assigned one of the older rooms, i think a chestnut room. The room was quite small, the sink was outside the bathroom and it reeked of cigarette smoke. When I politely mentioned this to the front staff, and mentioned that I had heard the applewood rooms were newly refurbished, could they please give one ones of those rooms. initially they said no, bec of the tournament but one of the guys let slip that the first night wasn't a problem only the second. i said we would be happy to take it for the 1 night and then move. of course, they never asked us to move.
the only nice rooms are the applewood and presidential. i had called a few nights before we came and found this out from the receptionist. our applewood was lovely, high ceiling, newly refurbished, very comfortable. bathroom was nice. all very clean. the staff were very friendly and helpful. complimentary coffee in rooms and at the front desk. pool is gorgoues! nice courtyard area etc. highly recommend.
Very Nice Pool and mid point to Niagara Falls
It is very easy access at the I-81x194 and I-476 that I used it on the way to Niagara Falls and back from. It is so conveniently located and right next to it is the best huge 24 hour gas station that before I checked in, I fill may tank at this 20 cent cheaper gas station (now $2.85 vs $3.09 I saw along the route).
The front desk is nice and staff very curtesous and checked us right in. One night I tried one king size bed room, and on the way back, I used 2 double bed room. Either one is comfortable.
The swimming pool is big and shine with depth from 3ft to 9ft, not like those kiddie pool in Courtyard or Hilton Garden Inn. Very nice. They also use it for pool side wedding, so it looks very nice and luxury.
The complimentary wireless Internet is very fast even if we got multiple portable pc going on, that's great! You have to ask the password from the front desk, but it is stadard, the hotel name.
The hotel is right at the hill and feel very quiet but if you go to the front, it is right on the street, lots of fast food, stores, the local big supermarket Weis is right across street, so you can get some supply at good price and conveniently.
I use this hotel as mid point to Niagara Falls, and I found it is perfect. When I came back last night, I arrived midnight, and the staff automatically called in this morning to suggest an extension to 2pm, what a nice staff and consideration !!! It is more than expectation ...
Oh, at the check in, you may grab a big apple and cup of great taste complimentary coffee at the lobby. There are also many magazines and travel info available.
In the room also a small refrig which is very handy for milk and cold drink.
There is also a very beautiful restaurant onside that you can have breakfast and sunday brunch.
Again, this is very nice hotel and at great location heading to Niagara Falls or north from south. and very quiet setting can be use for a weekend getaway or in town travel as well. Scranton right next to it has many places to visit too ...
Very nice place!
Stayed at the inn at nichols village for a quick getaway with my other half. The room was very clean and the hotel overall was well maintained and comfortable. Location was good with many great places to eat less than five minutes drive away. Also, if you go out, Alexander's spa is wonderful!!
Although the check in staff were not the friendliest they were efficient and upgraded us to the main building no charge.
Room is large and beds good. Room 140 is very large. Clean and two double beds.
Wireless internet is FREE and very welcome to stay in touch with family.
I can't say enough about the room and the hotel. We found it through Expedia and paid almost nothing!
We pre booked this hotel on line for an overnight stay on our way down to New York city. We were very happy with the room, it was large, bright and clean, easy check in and out. Good sized bathroom, clean fresh towels. The hotel is easy to find off the highway, gas stations and restaurants are in the area. We used the hotel restaurant The Firegrill for dinner and were very impressed with the service and the food (excellent). Will stay again if traveling through this area.
Not particularly Impressed
Let me begin by saying I am a very flexible traveler. I can stay anywhere from a tent to a hostel to a 4 star hotel, and I judge my experiences from my expectations vs actual experience. In the case of this hotel I did not think it was up to my expectations. Planned it as a romantic getaway, booked it on-line after a good deal of searching including a favorable review on this site. The pictures of the place are technically accurate, but the property descriptions are generous at best. Location is 20' off a major road, of intersecting highways and it doesn't feel like an Inn at all. It feels like a "decent" boutique hotel. We paid $150 a night for a Jacuzzi Suite. The couch if you can call it that was undersized, the carpets were worn in spots, the bed skirts were ripped, the duvet cover was rather rough and the comforter within was put in so poorly that it was puddled to one side of the bed making a mound on one side. The heat was touch and go...level 4 too warm for either of us, level 3 too cold, and windows didn't open to help eleviate the dry heat. The jacuzzi presented as "large enough for 2 adults" would be, if neither had legs! The first night of our stay the water was lukewarm so forget even using it, same with the shower. By the next morning it was repaired however. The staff made no effort to make up the situation with any discount or other offer, although admittedly I didn't request one. On the plus side the staff was nice, check in was efficient, and the on site restaurant a very pleasant surprise. Reasonably priced with great food. Overall, not a terrible experience just not a particulary impressive one, and I don't think worth the price.
We totally enjoyed our stay at this fabulous hotel. Will be staying there again.
We totally enjoyed this hotel. The room was more than adequate. The restaurant, The Fire Grill, served delicious food at affordable prices and the service was excellent...David, Nancy, Joan, and Joy were super. The pool and the spa provided welcome relief for our weary bones. The front desk staff were most professional and courteous...always making sure that there was a fresh hot delicious cup of coffee for their guests...and served with a smile. We will be staying there again in the future. We highly recommend this hotel to one and all who might be visiting the Clarks Summit-Scranton area of PA.
Not worth it for an overnight
They have a restaurant that was open late, looked cute, outdoor patio. We got in late, only stayed one night. The rooms were big, very clean, nicely decorated. The bathroom was nice. But the price was too high for just the room. If we had been there a few days to use the ammenities, it may have been worth the high price.

... University and failed miserably! And landed to the sight of a lot of fog, the perfect New York City night haha. Anyway! Everyone is so nice here! Met some amazing people!

... 1 was the Backyard Ale House. Nope, we didn't want to have lunch in what looked for all accounts like a dive bar. Option #2 was a place called Carl Van Luger's. I guess we should have known by the white table clothes what we were getting into but the lunch menu looked reasonable. And, the food was good and it wasn't too expensive. IT JUST TOOK FOREVER!! An hour and 45 minutes later, we FINALLY were on our way to ...

We could barely contain ourselves when the subway door kept slamming the back tire and slamming back open. Kudos to the gentleman who helped the oblivious one get squared away! Moving on to the tons of food choices. We ended up at a place that looked like a convenience store, but was ...
... veterinarian works out of his home, with no computer in sight and old school file cabinets. It's where people still write checks at the grocery store and say hello even though they don't know who the you are :) We're both road weary and right now are planning to base here for a few months. I'm enjoying the peacefulness of the woods, trying to sneak up on chipmunks and even the freaking bird that sounds like a dying pac man arcade game. Hope all is well with everyone. Bye for now ...
... as you quickly pass by potential stops like the Catskills and Woodstock - so much to see but the road is calling. Finally, 7 1/2 hours after leaving Burlington, we arrived in Scranton, the 6th largest city in Pennsylvania. Home tonight will be the downtown Hilton Hotel whose hotel lobby contains one, Starbucks! Scranton was once called "The Electric City" because of some 1880 electric lights installed in ...
