Headed for Philiadelphia for a convention, and didn't want to spend $250+ per night. This place fit the bill. The rooms were safe, clean & comfortable (Motel 6 +/- ). The staff was nice & friendly. No room issues... Looks like it used to be a Sheraton or a Holliday Inn. Then.. the Hurricane hit. The hotel is right on... More

This hotel is conveniently located within 3 miles of the Philadelphia Airport and offers a free shuttle. However, it's a bit seedy and I wouldn't stay again. The rooms were small but clean. Didn't sleep well due to noises outside and the feeling someone was going to break-in.

**Make sure you ask for a room opposite the night club! If you are staying here over the weekend make sure you get a room on the other side. The hotel is connected to a night club. Which is very loud! The night club is open until 2am. My room was on the other side and I still heard the... More

Used Priceline who called this a 2 star....hate to see 1 star. Very tired room, on 3rd floor up steep concrete steps. No internet signal on 3rd floor. Mattress thin and uncomfortable. Came in after day out and found room not clean, no new towels and manager shrugged it off as help called in so they were short staffed. "Breakfast"... More

And it was clean. But the room is spartan and furnishings tired. It took nearly an hour for the shuttle to arrive (apparently it was "shift change"). If your room is on the second floor, you will haul bags up outside concrete steps to get there. "Breakfast" items are colored chemicals/bread products which you will eat standing up in the... More

Hotel was just okay. We stayed here because rates were low and had to book trip at the last minute due to a family emergency. Beware! The hotel is next to a nightclub that will blast music until 2am! Nothing hotel can do about it but would have been nice to know!

^ Like I said up there....unless you are okay with those things don't bother. The only plus side was the view at sunset of the bridge. and the small park you can walk to. I was lied to by omission. After reading previous reviews on here I called to ask about the noise level. They told me the outside bar... More

We arrived at the hotel using the free airport shuttle quite early in the day but were allowed into our room right away. It was quite a shock to enter the room, however, as the fan was on full blast and the air conditioning set at 54 degrees F! It must have been that way for a long time as... More

This place is next to a "beach club" on the waterfront. It's a very basic hotel, and half of the rooms face the courtyard that makes up that club. So yes, when the weather is nice outside, it's going to be noisy until 2 AM or so. I booked here because I needed a place to stay after a late-night... More
