Our flight out of Newark was cancelled and rebooked for the next morning out of Philadelphia, so we tried to find an airport close to the hotel. The closest ones were booked so we wound up here totally randomly. It's about a 10 minute drive to the airport. The rooms are spacious and nice and the staff is very friendly... More

Aside from the remote not working and not enough pressure in the bathrm; I have a blast enjoying myself and will come back again really soon. Another Best Western to visit is in Shillington but only for the Christmas holidays for the Christmas Village

Not a place to bring children, crazy parties and the security was useless. Location was less to be desirable. Parking was very sketchy. Dont think of eating a nice breakfast because it was all frozen and heated by a microwave.

If there was an option for good, I would have chosen it. This hotel is slightly above average because it has been updated (i.e. bathroom and small kitchen area). I stayed MLK weekend in one of the king suites. Overall this hotel is a good value for the money. The rooms are a nice size and comfortable. One of the... More

My daughter and I were in town to visit nearby Swarthmore College. While the hotel was clean, the breakfast good, and the staff friendly, I was nervous walking from my car to the hotel. There were several shady looking people hanging around outside the hotel. During the night, I was awoken by fighting and yelling outside my window. While staying... More

Nice and helpful staff, good value for price paid, comfortable bed, clean room and property and I don't know what else to write to get to two hundred letters. I did not have any problems. I am still not at two hundred characters, maybe this time, they really need to get rid of the 200 minimum it probably loses them... More

We needed a place for the night and found this hotel through AAA. The receptionist was very good and well informed about the local area. His recommendation for the Upland Diner, about a mile away, was excellent. That, too, is worth checking out for good home cooked food. Overall the hotel is well run, clean and in a good area,...

As noted, not only was the "quality" not there for this to be a "Plus" property, there were equipment concerns (overly-noisy heating unit; no kitchen ware; poor water pressure) but also personal safety concerns (for location and movement between parking lot and lobby--down dark alley).

Phenomenal hotel staff. I cannot say a single negative thing about anyone I interacted with over a four night stay. Right next to 7-11, which was super convenient. The area was nice (adjacent to a university), but less than a mile away it got pretty sketchy. Great price for the quality of rooms and amenities. Breakfast needed more fruit, and... More
