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

There is a small lobby--staff at front desk very pleasant and helpful. We had a room with 2 clean, comfortable Queen beds, fridge, microwave and safe. Carpets in our room were worn. Complimentary shuttle to airport where we could get a Septa train to downtown Philadelphia--- takes 30 minutes. Breakfast buffet offered a nice variety of hot and cold items.... More

Staff went out of their way to assist me with my stay! Transported me to and from several locations to eat late at night. Several times I requested assistance in local sites and they went out of their way to make sure I was given the information on the site and directions in getting to them. They also provide other...

It was noisy inside - the heater was extremely loud blowing air. It was noisy outside - fire engines, emergency vehicles, people yelling, cars revving and maids banging on the door even though the quiet sign was up. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was not as good as other Best Westerns at which we have stayed.

We were catered to by each staff member. Handicapped room met our extensive needs. Breakfast menu upgrade to sausage and scrambled eggs was welcomed Good coffee and warm conversations. The family atmosphere made our Christmas most enjoyable. It was a home away from home for us.

I came down to the area for a hockey tournament weekend. I didn't expect much from the hotel as it was only rated 2 stars. Parking was free and easy. There is a TD Bank and a 7-11 attached! The staff were very friendly and it looks like things have been updated since the paint job on the door to... More

Overall experience ok, carpet not very clean, high speed internet is better than most places I stayed. Staff are friendly, The part of town gives feeling of not very safe, but if stay in at night is fine, has a police sub-station down stairs.
