I had my wedding there on June 22, 2019. It was absolutely perfect. The venue was extremely clean amd organized. The food was delicious. All of the staff was very happy, helpful, courteous, and very well mannered. Every member of the staff at the hotel came and congratulated my husband and I which was super nice.Sent on 06/25/2019
Our wedding consultant Bri. Kern was absolutely amazing. There are not enough words to describe this girl. Truly amazing and attentive. She has a glowing personality. Everyone of our guests thought she was amazing. She honestly made our wedding perfect absolutely perfect!! If we had a question for her she would have an answer for us in no time at all. She would definitely get way higger than a 5 star rating from us!!!!

Planned my wedding in 2 months!
Bri and the whole staff at Holiday Inn- East Mountain were very flexible and helpful! I started my wedding planning 2 months before I was looking to have it and I loved the one stop shop that came with the venue. They had center pieces, table numbers, cake knife and server, table linens... EVERYTHING! Not to mention the beautiful outdoor ceremony/cocktail hour area and amazing food/drinks which was also included! I could not have pulled this wedding off at any other venue!Sent on 08/11/2019

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!Sent on 11/17/2018

Where do I even begin. I loved working with Mandy on the Sales team. She was fantastic. When I had a question or just needed to get in touch with her, she was very responsive and helpful. Everything that comes from a wedding package at the Holiday Inn - East Mountain is worth it. Along with the room and catering, your cake is included in your package as well as a complimentary wedding night stay in the bridal suite, which has amazing views of the Wyoming Valley. The week of the wedding was a breeze because of the amazing wedding team. On our wedding day, from Mandy all the way down to the waitstaff, everyone made sure that my husband and I didn't have to lift a finger for anything. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and secluded. You almost forget that you are in Wilkes-Bare and just off the highway. I could go on and on about how perfect our day was, but it was all made possible by Mandy and her team.Sent on 07/07/2018

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.Sent on 05/31/2018

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!Sent on 11/21/2017
Holiday Inn Wilkes Barre - East Mountain's reply:Jessica, thank you so much for sharing the good feedback.

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.Sent on 07/26/2017

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!Sent on 09/27/2016

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!Sent on 07/16/2016

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).Sent on 10/22/2015
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.Sent on 07/16/2015

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!Sent on 07/15/2015
