Great place! If I come back to the Philly area wouldn't mind staying here again! If you're not a fan of the college environment you do not know what you're missing. They got a very friendly staff and the rooms are very spacious. Can't believe it costed me less than $100 to stay here.

Small hotel, around a corner besides Temple Univ, very hard to find. Small lobby but decorated like typical old fashioned European living room. The room is very comfortable. Nice breakfast (the "restaurant" is the lobby though). Walking distance to the subway station.

I stayed here a year ago and again this year. It is convenient for visiting Temple. I was disappointed when I went down for breakfast the first morning that they no longer offer breakfast. I had counted on it and thought I was paying for it. Then in our last morning, we awoke to a lot of noise in the... More

The room itself was disappointing and dreary, the bedding was horrible! The pull out sofa was so uncomfortable that my daughter slept in the floor! When we contacted the front desk we were told the hotel was fully booked and they would contact a manger which they never did or if they did, he or she didn't care because I... More

The hotel was very convenient because we were attending an athletic event on the campus. The only negative thing I really have to share is about the bathtub/shower. The shower head was horrible and looked dirty and there was mildew around the tub/shower wall.

It was our first time in Philly and I was a bit worried about the crime levels there. But this hotel is in such a beautiful part of town. Sure it's in temple university but that's what made it so safe and beautiful. Temple has tons of police on duty and the historical buildings were a great view. The free... More

I was accommodated here as a guest of Temple University who kindly footed the bill. It's not a big place but straightforward to find. I was allocated a King suite which had a reasonably-sized bedroom with a bathroom to one side and a sitting room to the other. Despite a number of windows, the whole suite felt dark although the...

My husband and I spent two nights at the Conwell Inn on Temple University campus and loved it. The hotel room was spacious and very nicely appointed, the staff were very helpful and cheerful, and the location couldn't be beat. There are a number of low-cost restaurants nearby. We had to drive to get to a restaurant with "atmosphere," but... More

We arrived on a Sunday evening on our way back from New England. We thought the Conwell Inn would be a nice, clean, economical stop-over on the long drive back to D.C. For $125, however, the room was dimly lit, there were grimy spots all over the furniture, one of the desk drawers was broken and hanging off, and the... More

We have stayed at the Conwell Inn 4 times this year. The staff is always great and very accommodating. It is a perfect location to Temple University Hospital. Our last stay we had a king suite with a sofa bed and the sofa bed mattress was awful! Also when we flushed the toilet it made such a horrible noise and... More
