The people working at the hotel were great, the room was a good room, breakfast was fine. However this is an airport hotel. There are two main reasons why people stay at this particular hotel. 1. Widener University is across the street, so if you have business there it makes sense to stay here. 2. This is an airport hotel... More

BEST WESTERN PLUS Philadelphia Airport South at Widener University was a great place for our one night layover before leaving Philadelphia to return home. It's a comfortable hotel with very spacious rooms. The location is easily accessible, with some exposure to Philadelphia traffic noise. We stayed just one night (Saturday), and there were only a couple times when we heard... More

We were stuck in Philly due to cancellation. Airport shuttle was very convenient, staff were awesome. Gym was decent. Suites were very reasonably priced and just massive. Internet was complimentary and high-speed; we got a ton of work done.

Really liked the staff overall. Everything was clean and in working order. Location is very convenient to Widener U, Swarthmore College, and ice skating center in Aston. Towels were a bit skimpy, so if you like towels ask for extras.

My friend and I were in town for the night for a friend's 40th birthday party. I saw that this hotel was new and had a great price. It's not the nicest area but it's across the street from Widener University. The hotel was modern and the rooms were nice and clean.

Just needed one night before boarding a plane. Very satisfied with all aspects of my stay. Clean hotel, rooms, lobby. Neat, no trash laying around. Friendly staff, all of them. Close to the airport. Short trip to the local casino for wonderful food and other distractions. I couldn't ask for more.
