The mattress was AWESOME! No traffic noise. Easily accessible. Very courteous staff. Room was very clean. Overall it was one of the best hotels I've stayed at.

Came as a researcher by day, tourist by night. Easy access to both Swarthmore and the major highways into Philadelphia and area. Service was very friendly. In particular, Tatiana (I apologize if I spelled your name wrong) was very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were clean and spacious. Overall, I was very happy with my stay.

Even though my team lost, you guys treated us like winners day in and day out! Antonia and Moe especially! The food was great in the morning, the rooms/hallways/bathrooms/everything was very clean and up to date. I can't stress enough how great the staff treated us. They were very respectful and respectable, polite and fun people. I wouldn't change a... More

We researched for so very long for this trip and we kept stumbling upon this hotel. We continued to see reviews about the location which were pretty accurate. The location isn't the best. Our view was a street view that was homes that weren't the nicest and a lower income neighborhood surrounded most of the lot on the side of... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. Check-in went quickly and efficiently. The hotel room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The shuttle was quick in picking us up from our dinner, and the driver was very friendly.
