Asked front desk about getting something yo eat and she told us definitely not to walk in a particular direction. Parking was included but lot was... More

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The shuttle service to and from the airport and hospital was very convenient. There was very little wait time associated with it. Walt was friendly and helpful.

Chose the hotel for its central location between some stops we had to make. We weren't expecting a resort, but the hotel is located in a somewhat vacant, extremely run down area and does not feel very secure. The outside of the hotel is somewhat vague - hard to find the entrance. Parking is open on a dimly lit lot... More

IF you don't mind staying out of the city a few miles, this hotel was a very comfortable option. For the price, it was a very good value. The staff was incredible! We've made a habit of looking for Best Westerns as we travel the country as we've had consistently good experiences and find most properties are new or recently... More

I enjoy my stay everytime. The hotel receptionist Antonia operated in complete excellence and was very helpful with all my questions. The shuttle driver Rodney went above and beyond his job functions. He took us to a local restaurant in the area was later informed by management that he couldnt go there. However when your guest are happy and served... More

I had an overnight here while waiting fora flight out of PHL. Where too start....free airport shuttle, free wi-fi, free fitness and a hearty breakfast with actual orange juice. The room was clean, cozy and the super comfy bed! The front desk had answers to my million question and always answered with a thank you and a smile! Highly recommend!

My stay at this hotel was very pleasant. The king room was spacious and comfortable. The staff were friendly and pleasant. Breakfast had waffles, always a positive experience for me. If you are visiting Widener University, I recommend this hotel. Very close to campus.

New/opening pains/issues. Has potential. but the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing yet. Towels were scratchy. Night desk people did not know there is a charge for park and fly, and that I needed a paper for in the car. Morning checkout people did.

This hotel could be so much better with some minor changes. The hotel appears to be almost brand new. The room itself was very large with high ceilings and was reasonably clean. The HVAC unit seemed to cycle the heat on and off whenever it wanted, and I wondered if the thermostat on the wall was even connected to the... More

Hotel was pretty good as far as check-in/out process and cleanliness. It was excellent in terms of hotel staff attitude. I felt that the breakfast could have had more options that are considered "hot." Also, the internet should have been much faster.
