Verified Reviews of Best Western Plus Wilkes Barre Center City

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Noisy, besides that Okay."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Hotel was Okay super noisy between a screaming child on our floor at 2AM (I know that's hard to handle, but was still disturbing) and a large dog barking for at least two hours in the morning hours on our floor. Quality was average, cleanliness was average. Staff at the Oyster were nice.
