What a great find in a great location in Philadelphia. I was there for July 4 and their rate was great. Do not let other Rodeway Inns appearance make you not stay here as I have seen some sketchy Rodeways. The staff was helpful, I was shocked when they went outside to hail us a cab. The room was clean... More

Location couldn't be better. Lots of great restaurants and walked to everything. Park across the street for $12 overnight. With that being said, worst night sleep we've had. We needed 2 queen beds with 2 adults and 2 children. They were overbooked and upgraded us to a suite. We thought that meant 2 queen bed suite...like maybe with a couch.... More

The Rodeway is within walking distance to everything! The hotel and the room itself was quite charming. My room had a refrigerator, microwave, kuerig coffee maker, iron and ironing board and a hairdryer. Wi-Fi was free. The bed was very comfortable and it was nice and quiet. They keep free fruit and infused water at the front desk for guests.... More

We chose this hotel because its location first; the parking at the front made it very convenient too. Room was impeccable (though a little small, but I guess that's what comes with such a classical old building), very clean and cozy with a nice bow-window facing the street. The AC was a little too high and, though I tried to... More

As I walked in from the street, I thought "oh, boy. I hope the rodents are clean at least." I entered and very much delighted, Though small, it was a great lobby and staffed by some of the nicest people at each shift. I walked into my room, and surprise 2! It was renovated, small and great, and very comfortable.... More

Do NOT let the Rodeway brand alter your decision. This is a hotel I will be staying in every time I go to Philly. Rooms are extremely well appointed. Service at the front desk was GREAT. Especially Dawn who was the best!. I am a business traveler and expect a very clean, well decorated room etc. And this exceeded my... More

This hotel is very centrally located on a major shopping street within walking distance to all the major Philly attractions. As I don't have a car, it was ideal for my needs. As hotels go, it was decent and pretty well-equipped. The room was spacious, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was a little dated but perfectly functional. The... More

The hotel is in a perfect location. Right in downtown where all the action happens. The room was nice, clean and decorated in a modern design. The flavored water and fruit at the lobby desk is a personal touch. I will stay here the next time I travel.

I stayed for one night - and I know over the next four years I will be staying quite a bit more. (My daughter will be attending a university in the area.) Location was amazing. I parked my car in the garage across the street - and walked everywhere! My single room was on the small size, but is was... More

The hotel was clean and the service was really great. For the price and location, you really can't go wrong. The only reason I didn't give it the max rating is because the bed was bit uncomfortable and my bathroom was outside the room, which really wasn't too bad. (but not all rooms are that way, only the most economical)
