We stayed at this Comfort Inn prior to a 6 AM flight. We left our car for two weeks. The room was clean and comfortable. The trips to and from the airport were fine and timely. Overall, this was a good deal. We will certainly use Comfort Inn the next time we have a god-awful early morning flight.

The room was ok for just an overnight stay. I choose it because of the price, parking, internet and overall previous rating but I didn't see the more recent reviews. The bathrooms needed much improvement. The floors were sticky, the shower head needed repairs and the walls needed painting throughout the room. I would have chosen a different alternative.

If my husband and I had been able to find another room for the night, we would have walked right back out and considered the lost room fee money well spent! When we entered the lobby there was a party going on in a room just around the corner. The clerk just shrugged and said the group had rented the... More

I count on comfort inn for consistency -bad area, poor security, hookers in the elevator! We wondered if the corporate headquarters knew they owned this place. Staff were unfriendly, one dinghy elevator.

We stayed here on recent trip to Philadelphia. Lodging is a fraction of the price of staying near the airport versus in the city and parking is free vs $25 - $35/day for Center City lodging. From Center City it was only a 25 minute drive to the Comfort Inn. The Comfort Inn is a little worn (could use a... More

I got stuck in Philadelphia due to canceled lights and had to spend the night there. I was looking for a hotel that had a complimentary airport shuttle, and choose the Comfort Inn, as I'm an elite member of the Choices Privileges program and I've always found the Choice Hotel chain to be a good value for the money.

We stayed here March 2, 2015 before a trip. While we were able to leave our car when we were gone the room was dirty, sheets were stained, the room smelled musty.. Upon return it took 1 hour and 10 minutes to be picked up by the "courtesy shuttle" to return to the hotel. It was a 6 minute drive... More

Due to a winter storm, and the resulting massive number of flight cancellations, I found myself spending the night at the Comfort Inn. While I was grateful to have a room, I probably would not return to this property in its current condition. As has been mentioned in other reviews, the place is pretty rundown. Even though I found the... More

Despite being legal US tender, this hotel will not accept cash. I had lost my credit card but has cash. In my darkest hour, they were not my hope. They would not help me. However, the van drivers to/from the airport were very courteous, drove safely and were on time.
