We stayed one night to be near the airport for our flight the next day. The room was very good with refrigerator, good beds, and wifi internet. The breakfast was very good with hot and cold items. More fruit would have been appreciated. The front desk staff were very helpful. On the negative side, there are not any restaurants within... More

Fairly new, but a long way from anywhere (except the University), this is an average hotel which should attract few complaints. The efficient 24-hour airport shuttle is a plus - and it's availabe to take guests to a local diner (it's that remote) or a casino. There must be many better options for PHL.

Very good experience. Check in was quick. Hotel staff is very cheerful and friendly. The free breakfast included sausage eggs and make your own Belgian waffle. And, all the typical continental breakfast choices. But I must rave about their coffee, which is the best that I've had compared to all hotels, including higher end brands with Starbucks. Room was clean.... More

IMMEDIATELY upon arrival I was welcomed and treated with kindness and professionalism. Chris (the owner), Laura, Cheryl, Derrick, Donna, and Ms. Gerry are all wonderful people! They "make the Place"! I had a GREAT nights sleep on a King Bed! The room was clean and cozy. It was quiet too! The mini fridge and microwave were convenient to have! The... More

Hotel is next to Widener University and only a few minutes ba car from Philadelphia Airport. It is a nice and quiet Location for the last night before a Long distance flight. We can only recommend this Hotel.

We were looking for a hotel near the airport and we happy we chose this Best Western. The staff were terrific. A real bonus was a shuttle to and from the nearby Harrah's Casino. The shuttle bus driver was delightful.

My family was in the area for a graduation and, as you can imagine, the area was booked solid. We were lucky to get a room in our budget anywhere, and were pleased with our decision to stay at this Best Western. But there are a few "buts". None of these "buts" are enough to cause me not to recommend... More

On a return from Croatia my wife and I and another couple had to overnight in Philly before taking an early domestic flight home the next day. We therefore wanted a hotel convenient to the airport which also had shuttle service. This hotel fulfilled those requirements. The hotel was quiet, clean, and the beds very comfortable. The hotel check-in and... More

I used Hotwire to get a $60/king rate which made this hotel a great bargain for my two-night weekend stay. My must-haves are free airport shuttle (which saves me one day of car rental) and free wi-fi, and if they include breakfast that's a bonus, and this hotel does. If TripAdisor had a Good rating I would've rated it Good... More
