We took advantage of the hotel's fly and drive package en route to Puerto Rico. We arrived at 8 PM and left at 4:30 AM for our flight. We had a week of parking included in the price of the room--almost the same cost as just parking at PHL. Modern hotel, room with standard amenties, clean, cheerful staff, prompt airport... More

Flight connection could not be made, so the airline put me up here for a night with a meal voucher. There were many other people from my flight and the two employees did a great job checking everybody in. The room was big and clean, but not much more can be said about it. I used the meal voucher at... More

Stayed one night for a Phillies game. Good shuttle service to and from the airport, although it also serves the adjacent pay parking lot so it can already be full when it picks you up in the morning. The hotel is large and clean. I booked it on Hotwire and was pleasantly surprised.

Flight was cancelled so airline put us here. No other hotels were available, unfortunately, or we would have stayed somewhere else. Shuttle was convenient. Hotel extremely dated. Door had large gaps and could see light coming from hallway. Beds were clean and comfortable. Dated dark green carpet in room. Noisy air conditioner unit would cut on and off. Shower had... More

We stayed here for 1 night with a stay, park and travel package with some friends before a vacation. The hotel was SUPER busy due to some canceled flights in the area because of bad weather. The front desk staff (only 2 of them) did the best job they could in accomodating the number of people trying to check in.... More

I stayed here because of bad weather and a missed flight. The first room I was given had not been cleaned. The sheets were off the bed, wine glass out on table, used soap still sitting out as well as the ironing board and iron. I got a discounted rate from the airline so I innocently asked if I was...

This property was formerly a Ramada Inn that was in dire need of renovations. It was recently renovated under the new Clarion brand and they did a nice job. I was overnighting in the PHL area and all of the usual hotel choices were sold out. I was hesitant at first, but booked the room since it was only one... More

Nice clean property with a very friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant and room service is a great convenient feature as well. Would definitely stay here again and would refer this property as well to colleagues and friends.

We had to stay here unexpectedly when our son was released early from the hospital. This hotel is near the airport and has 24 free shuttle service with your stay... Our flight wasn't until 9pm the following day, so I asked if it would be possible to get a later checkout as we really had no where else to go.... More

I was very happy with the quick pickup and drop off turnarounds. Parked here for the first time for PHL Airport and my experience was great. As soon as I parked, a shuttle was waiting to take me to the airport. My drivers were friendly and helpful. Good prices to park for 7 days. Also found a Groupon for a... More
