Nichols Village Hotel & Spa, Scranton PA
Travel Blogs from Clarks Summit
Got into the Scranton area mid-day on Monday. Took us awhile to find our campground as it was about 15 miles out of town to the northeast. But it was worth looking for - a nice little spot nestled along the shores of Lake Henry. Most of the campground is filled up with seasonal campers, i.e. those that leave their campers there all summer. The owners were really friendly, wish we'd had more time to sit ...
... the next), and I couldn't see the edge of the bridge the first time we went on it. It looked like, well, air. I guess the Lackawanna River was only down twenty feet or so, but what I saw was, air. They changed to the different tracks from left to right on the bridge, so the next two times weren't so bad. I basically sat in the air conditioned main building while Greg strolled around and looked at train displays outside. Greg took the pictures. He has a few of them ...

I still don't understand what "Maps" on the I-pad is thinking. It seems every time we are in traffic and trying to turn of. a freeway it gets confused. We were going to try to avoid freeways, but now it seems we have to be content with which ever way "Maps" sends us. Today the ...

I would have a photo to share, but...my cell phone would not connect with the motel's wifi. So, envision a windshield with heavy to light rain, windshield wipers going back and forth and many, many 18 wheelers on I-95, I-90, I-84 and I-81.

Historical Traveler Reviews Nichols Village Hotel & Spa, Scranton PA Clarks Summit
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
