This is a great location. I reserved online through a "visit Philadelphia" website that displayed a bunch of places where you could park free with your hotel reservation. When I got to the hotel, it turned out that AARP members are not entitled to park free. The owner/manager was quite aggressive and rather than discussing the fact that the communication... More

Other than some bathroom design issues, this hotel has a great, central location, comfortable beds, good service, and nice amenities at a reasonable price. Validated parking is $12 a day, I believe, but with no in-and-out service. There's a SEPTA station right up the road and lot of restaurants in the immediate vicinity.

I've stay at this hotel a few times now and have found the accommodations ok when compared to the cost and its great location. The rooms are hit and miss but overall fine. One big difficulty.. I booked through AAA and the hotel did not receive the booking nor did they honor the rate. The manager was polite and concerned... More

The Center City Rodeway Inn property has become a favorite and regular destination for me when I travel to Philadelphia. The staff entertains requests ahead when registering (use Choice.Com). The team is pleasant, supportive, resourceful, and CONSISTENT! The rooms are updated and very comfortable for me as a single traveler. Thanks to all: Micheal, Brian, William, and Matt, at the...

It could of been just my room or maybe all the rooms next to alley. I could hear everything that was going on outside and the a/c that far back was pretty terrible. My bathroom outside my room was a closet, the fixtures were loose and the bathtub didn't drain. Great staff tho.

The Rodeway Inn Center City is what I believe to be a "well kept secret". Small but yet very efficient. Room size was very comfortable with all the expected amenities of a larger hotel. The desk staff was extremely courteous and friendly making us feel like part of a family. I anticipate staying there several more times while my wife... More

Location is good. Staff needs to improve their customer service and be more friendly. Also, if staff recommends a service such as coordinating airport shuttle they should be proactive and ensure that those arrangements are happening. We requested the service per the hotels recommendation and the shuttle was late and called the hotel to say they weren't picking us up.... More

Very friendly, clean, best location and good price. If you are looking for a affordable place to stay in downtown Philly, the Rodeway in is a very good choice! Brian, the Mamager at the front desk was the nicest and most competent guy i've met during my trip.

While there have been significate cosmetic upgrades to the building, the room was pretty much the same. The bathroom layout was odd with the rocking toilet right outside the walk in shower. The few towels in the room looked like they were several years old, mostly thread bare.
