This hotel is great giving the price we paid. Is right in the middle of everything and is very very clean. The staff is very nice and friendly, and they help you with everything you need, even without asking. The room wasn't that spacious, but it is cozy, modern decor, and very very clean. No bugs, no roaches,nothing. And it... More

On a quick trip to Philadelphia, we found this little treasure. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with suggestions. Our room was tiny but had all you needed for a 1-night stay. Great location with many restaurants in the area (Central City). Walking distance to many attractions.

I have been getting familiar with Philadelphia since I will be moving there very soon. This hotel is alarmingly cheaper then the Holiday Inn across the street so we were a little worried at first that it was not up to par. It was just fine! I will always stay here and suggest it to family when they will visit.... More

Stayed one night during trip to Pennsylvania. It is an older hotel in a great central location. Room was as spacious any other hotel, with up to date bathroom fixtures, TV and Keurig coffee maker. But it was a little worn, showing its age and use. Towels were European style thin towels. The staff was VERY helpful and friendly. They... More

Got the first one all wrong with the ratings. I didn't realize it until it was going, going gone. Enjoyed visit to Philly. Good location for what we wanted to do. Room was small but met our needs. We had limited contact with staff, but, when we did, our needs were met.

DONT STAY HERE. Had three days booked here for a event at the convention center. found cockroach's in the bathroom and when the owner was made aware he was everything but apologetic and didn't remove any charges. Stay at the Marriott instead. Rude staff and dirty place.

Kristen, As you are aware there were no cockroaches in your room. To the contrary as you were told at checkout we never have issues with cockroaches. Trying to get a discount threatening a bad review is not a new idea my friend. Bad reviews, even fake reviews, don't hurt a business especially when they are so untrue. If your... More

The location is very central with lots of good restaurants nearby. Staff are nice. The room is average though could have been cleaned a little more thoroughly. Also don't get the room on the second floor next to ice machine. Very loud.

I was hesitant to book because price was so low, but it turned out great. Hotel is newly renovated and comfortable. Rooms are small but adequate if you are going tone out and about. Definitely on my list of places I will stay again.

When my wife and I decided to make a short getaway to Philly, we looked for a low cost hotel that was centrally located and found the Rodeway Inn Center City. The service was very good. When we arrived Tuesday at midnight, Daryl, the night clerk, was cheerful and very helpful, making sure that we had all of the information... More
