    Beautiful venue

    This venue was absolutely amazing. Mandy and Shirley were personable, professional and easy to work with. Mandy was prompt in her email responses and very knowledgeable as to how to make our day special for us and our guests. They set everything up for us that day and it looked better than I even envisioned. The food was delicious and our guests loved having everything in the same location. I highly recommend this venue!

    Reception Venue

    Excellent service! Mandy could not have done a better job guiding us through the process of planning/preparing our reception. Always quick to reply, answered all questions very well. We could not have been happier. The venue looked beautiful the day of the reception.

    We were recently married here and we have nothing but good to say about the entire venue. The grounds for the ceremony were gorgeous, the veranda was set up perfect for cocktail hour, the reception hall atmosphere was beautiful, and each part of the night transitioned seamlessly from one to the next. The food was phenomenal and the beverage service was fast. The bridal suite balcony had an outstanding view and the room was big and clean. I can't speak highly enough about Mandy, she was very easy to work with and a huge help to us. This is a wedding venue gem in this area, It's an outstanding value and you get every penny's worth from them.

    We celebrated our wedding reception at the Holiday Inn-East Mountain. My husband and I still get compliments on the food and the venue itself. For the price, service and value, the Holiday Inn cannot be beat. We had our cocktail hour outside, but guests were allowed inside the bar area, due the weather being slightly chilly that day. Mandy and staff answered our emails and questions quickly and had tons of suggested when we needed them for other vendors, when needed. The whole process in picking out food and package options was super simple! I would not hesitate to recommend this venue!

    Our daughter Gina and son-in-law Mike were married at and held their reception at EMI.  First, and most important, the food is excellent.  The venue itself and accommodations are beautiful.  And the waitstaff and management are truly excellent.  Special kudos to Mandy, our wedding/reception coordinator; Lauren, waitstaff manager; and the waitstaff who danced and served the guests so joyously.  We can highly recommend EMI for a great wedding reception experience.

    The East Mountain Inn was the perfect venue for our wedding. Our friends and family had a fabulous time and raved about the delicious food. All staff were wonderful on our special day.

    My husband and I got married this past weekend 9.24.16 and we could not have had our wedding in a better place. The hotel was beautiful, reception hall was perfect, ceremony and grounds were amazing. The staff could not have been better! Mandy, Shirley, Nadine, Front end staff, Bistro staff, servers, Housekeeping...everyone was friendly, helpful, and so professional! Their attention to my small details and delicacy with all of my planning fills me with gratitude. Our guests raved about how beautiful it was, how delicious the food was, and the hotel itself (pool, jacuzzi, and SHUTTLE to casino) ! I would highly recommend the Holiday Inn - East Mountain! We wish we could do it all over again! Our wedding was Perfect!

    The absolute best place to have your wedding reception! Everyting was perfect! The ballroom was gorgeous! It looked better than I could have ever imagined. Mandy is wonderful to work with. She makes sure you get the wedding of you dreams and was always quick to respond to any questions I had. I will actually miss working together with her. My guests are still raving about everything; from how beautiful everything was, to the delicious food, and the friendly staff. I highly recommend having any event here as I also had the best bridal shower ever there as well. An absolute must for the perfect wedding day!

    I had my perfect wedding reception at the Holiday Inn Wilkes Barre - East Mountain on 10/10/15. Sales Manager, Mandy Loeffler handled every detail. She communicated VIA e-mail quickly which was extremely important to me because I was an out-of-town bride. She honestly helped me every step of the way from 12 months out to 1 month out, etc. I worked with her to rent the table linens. I also got a delicious wedding cake that came with the package. The food was overall absolutely delicious. Also, we had our happy hour outside on that beautiful patio. I would totally recommend that to any bride who has a wedding in the fall(luckily the weather cooperated).

    If I could go back and plan my wedding from scratch knowing what I know now, I would pick the Holiday Inn Wilkes Barre - East Mountain again. No question about it. I had no stress during the reception.

    We recently had our rehearsal dinner, wedding cocktail hour and reception at the Holiday Inn- East Mountain on July 4, 2015! What EXCEPTIONAL service we received from Mandy and the rest of the staff at the Holiday Inn - East Mountain! Weeks after the wedding we are still receiving compliments at how wonderful our wedding was and how gorgeous the banquet room was that day! Mandy and the entire rest of the staff were so professional and courteous to everyone and helped us out with so many of the details for the wedding day. The Holiday Inn - East Mountain is by far the BEST venue to have a wedding at !!! We wouldn't have had it any other way! They took great care of us from beginning to end.

    Mandy and the rest of the holiday inn-east mountain helped to make my wedding day perfection. From my first contact to the thoughtful email sent from Mandy while on my honeymoon, I do not have a negative thing to say. I knew what I wanted with my wedding- and it was provided beyond my expectations. I did not lift a finger. Pictures were beautiful on the grounds! Complimentary room with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries was adorable ❤️ you can see that Mandy loves her job, and she is amazing it at. Thank You Mandy, Karen, the cooks and the wait staff- you truely are top notch!

    We had our cocktail hour & reception here and everything was top notch! We also had a photos taken on the grounds because the scenery is so beautiful there! Mandy Loeffler & all of the staff were just outstanding to work with. They really went above & beyond to make our day very special. We felt very comfortable reaching out to Mandy with any questions we had along the way. She went out of her way to make us feel completely at ease with how our day there would go. We had many guests that also stayed at the newly renovated hotel and were very pleased with their stay. I highly recommend this venue! Best value, best service, best food, best staff!

They were such a pleasure to work with and did everything to be sure that everything ran smoothly leading up to and on the day of our wedding. Everything was wonderful, from the outdoor cocktail hour to the ballroom. The food and service was great. I would highly recommend The East Mountain Inn to anyone planning a wedding.

    We had an amazing wedding at the East Mountain Inn. Everyone was so easy to work with and really made our day feel special. The staff was very responsive and flexible even with some unique requests we had leading up to the wedding. They were very mindful of the weather and how it would affect us, the food, and the guests and had so many back-up plans we knew we wouldn't have to worry. The grounds were beautiful and great for picture-taking. We couldn't have asked for nicer people to work with for our big day. Everything ran so smoothly. The banquet manager even dressed in our wedding colors!

    The only downside was that the ceremony site can only hold 60-75 chairs, so we had to ask our younger guests to stand. It worked out fine since our ceremony was not incredibly long but when we first booked, that made us nervous. Everything worked out just fine.

    Their wedding was beautiful and they made a wonderful couple. We have beautiful grounds where we can hold ceremonies as long as the weather cooporates with us for the week. We are just starting to utilize this area now due to the demand. You must come see how beautiful.
