Not a place we would normally book, but we loved staying on the Temple campus. Great location, large room, clean and comfortable beds, very quiet all day and night, safe. The front desk and housekeeping staff members were very friendly and helpful, both on the phone and in person. Several restaurants and a 7-Eleven nearby. A few cons: pricey for... More

I was at Temple for a week long course. I stayed in midtown for the first 2 nights before I was able to get a room at the Conwell. Not being from Philadelphia and hearing about the rougher neighbourhoods around Temple, I was unsure about staying here. Turns out, campus is really nice and this was a great place with... More

I was in Philly for a seminar at Temple and stayed at the Conwell Inn which is really conveniently located right on the Temple campus. The Inn has a shabby chic demeanor but was clean. It was a little noisy due to the shops located below the hotel. The rooms could use some remodeling. But it does have the basic... More

Booked the Conwell Inn, since we went to a concert close by. The inn is on the campus of Temple University. Rooms are very small. My girlfriend and I were practically tripping over each other. Our room, supposedly, had a Queen bed, but the bed seemed the size of a double. Room wasn't very clean, either. The area in the... More

Greetings and thank you for reaching out to tell us about your experience. I am truly sorry if you felt your experience here was less than perfect. My apologies about the size of the room, as we do have some of the largest rooms in the city. Our corner rooms are a touch smaller, and I think that might have... More

We spend two night here, May 20 & 21, 2015 and enjoyed it very much. This small inn, only 22 rooms, is actually on campus and right next door to the campus police department. Beautiful location and surroundings. Only a two block walk to a subway station so getting around in Philly was easy. Our room was large and very... More

My friend and I stayed here during Temple's Alumni weekend about two weeks ago. It was booked through Groupon, and upon arrival they didn't have our welcome wine basket. I said "oh, it's ok - we'll be here more than one night, so we could always pick it up tomorrow". (I didn't even remember about that basket honestly). The front... More

The Conwell Inn is a fine place to stay when visiting Temple University. The staff are friendly and helpful, and it has the feel of a B&B without the breakfast. There is a coffee shop next door and food trucks and fast food all around but for shopping, museums, restaurants etc. you need to get into the Philadelphia city center.

I recently stayed at the Conwell Inn during a speaking engagement at Temple University. Believe it or not, I didn't even know there was a hotel on campus and I spent four years at the university. From the minute I walked in, I was treated great. Michael at the front desk gave me the rundown of what was available to... More

Pros: * Phenomenal location at Temple * Cozy rooms * Friendly staff Cons: * This is probably my bad luck but they didn't finish cleaning my room. There was a bottle of cleaner fluid left in my room and the lotion etc. left for me were mostly used already so I think the cleaning lady had something come up and... More

I did not have high expectations for a hotel geared to visitors to a university campus. But the Conwell Inn exceeded my expectations. The room on the second floor was immaculately clean, the bed was comfortable, heat was easily adjusted, bathroom was provided with all necessities and towels were nice and thick. Unlike more luxurious places I have stayed in,... More
