We stayed for one night just before Easter and the hotel is a good option for those with only a little time to spend in the city, like us, being easy to find just off the I 95 and yet just a short walk from the Historic District. The hotel also lays on a free shuttle bus that will take... More

We booked a special promotion that included free parking with the hope we could check in and never have to drive anywhere. The location was perfect for that, being an easy walk to the historic locations. The employees were all very nice and friendly, the hotel was very clean, and the hot cinnamon rolls at breakfast were delicious. The only... More

What a terrible location for a hotel. It feels like you right in the middle of I 95. Wait... You are. If you want to get a good nights rest I'd advise sleeping somewhere else. Also the fire alarm at 7:30am was the icing on the cake. I guess they don't do regular maintaince on the rooftop vents.

First time back to this hotel since it became a Holiday Inn Express and we were pleasantly surprised. Nice lobby with a fireplace. Friendly staff, particularly Teeza, who changed our room after some minor issues. Only one elevator was working so there was some wait time. Breakfast was good and the free shuttle to local destinations was convenient.

I stay at this hotel every few months just to get away. As always my stay was great. Checked in pretty quickly and easy with Zenita, she was very pleasant and put me on the top floor :)! The room was clean and quiet, even facing the highway! Breakfast in the morning was great! Good variation, and the staff was... More

Although this hotel is in the Phildelphia area it is not a pure HIE. When I visited the property it was in transisition from its former owner. This no pool to go to and it is overlooks a supply building. Staff was sloppy in finding my room as they gave me the wrong key first time out. This has never... More

My husband and I, along with our two small children, stayed here for one night (Saturday). Check-in was pleasant and smooth. Parking was close and easy (if pricey). Only one of the two elevators were functional the entire time we were there. It moved quickly between floors, but there were always a lot of people waiting for it. Our room... More

Dear TheNesbitts07, Thank you very much for staying with us! Your feedback is much appreciated. We apologize about the elevators, we are currently undergoing a renovation that will give us a brand new elevator very shortly. I apologize for the noise level.
