I stayed here to drop my daughter off at Temple University after winter break. The hotel is located on campus. Even being familiar with the campus, it was difficult to locate the driveway to the hotel's parking lot. The street is tiny and, if making a left turn from Broad Street, there is no left turn lane. Broad Street is... More

Great for visiting Temple University, but in need of renovation or at least of good overall cleaning. The pervading odor of air fresheners in the room is always a bad sign, and the impression did not get better when looking at the carpets, the upholstery, edges of ceramic tiling in the bathroom, etc. The rooms are very spacious, though, and...

I've never been to Philly before and was coming for a concert so I wanted something relatively close. Driving into the area, I was a bit skeptical but when we arrived I was more assured. It's right on a college campus, we were able to park right next to the building and I felt a lot safer with the safety... More

Visited the hotel for a weekend. My daughter is at Temple so I wanted convenience. We ended up with convenience, charm and excellent customer service. It may seem like a small kindness, but we were unfamiliar with Pennsylvania laws regarding the purchase of wine. The manager of the hotel, Miranda, immediately found a bottle of red wine in the office... More

I was able to park next to the Inn, the check-in was seamless, the room was very large and comfortable with a great bed for sleeping! I am a TU grad and it is nice to see and feel the energy present on a large school campus and stay on the campus is a great experience!

I spent an evening at the Conwell Inn while visiting my daughter at Temple University. Since the hotel is located right on Temple's campus, I am sure that many if not most of their guests are some how associated with Temple. However, if you want a clean, cozy alternative to the big hotels downtown this is a great choice. It... More

Front desk person was no help at all, could not even offer eating recommendations, had no clue or advice on where to even get anything to eat. Food brochures in the room we outdated. Not close to anything. Would only recommend if your staying on campus and need no amenities.

I spent one night with my family during our holidays but am quite dissatisfied with the choice. The hotel is inside the Temple University campus in Philly and this is not a problem, however the access is quite difficult, the GPS is leading you on the wrong entrance, and even when you reach the entrance, you have to leave the...

The smell in this room was so unpleasant and strong that we had to keep the AC extremely low to make it bearable. The place is obviously very old and historic in the center of Temple University's campus right next to its campus police (very hard to find and very difficult parking situation at $15 a night.) However, it's quaintness... More

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
