On vacation with some family, we're from Florida our family is from Washington. This hotel is extremely hard to find if you are not familiar with the area. Once everyone got settled in for Vacation we woke up the next morning and we had a bill under our door. We were staying for two days. We went down to the... More

Stayed here on a business trip when I had a workshop on campus at Temple University. There's a real paucity of hotel choices in the area, so I chose to stay here mostly out of necessity. The hotel is located right in the heart of the campus, which has some plus sides (close to my business needs, a good deal... More

The hotel was clean and the front desk staff were all very friendly. The cookies in the lobby were nice. I also used the business center, and it was good. The hotel was very convenient to public transportation. The only complaint I had was that the wi-fi service was spotty at best.

I checked in around 12:15 AM on a recent visit to Temple University for business. My brief interactions with the staff were helpful, informative, and friendly. The bed was very large and comfortable. The lack of a breakfast and few amenities will perhaps keep me from returning in the future although my visit was positive. If I return to Philadelphia... More

Stayed for four nights. The king suite on second floor is not very large. Moved to a room on the third floor due to noisy floor above. Room was very small but quite nice. The prices vary from day to day but they are very reasonable for Phily. Ask for the AAA discount if you have one. No breakfast or... More

I stayed at the Conwell Inn for one night in May 2014. It has a safe and peaceful location on the compound of Temple University. Walking distance to Metro station and SEPTA regional train station (the regional train is going to Amtrak station and Airport). Room spacious, helpful staff. No breakfast.

Excellent hotel! Very clean, huge bed and a great shower! The staff were very attentive. The only problem is that there were few parking at the hotel, but the area is not dangerous and we left the car parked on the street. This hotel is about 10 minutes from the main tourist attractions.

If you have any business at Temple University, the Conwell Inn is an extremely convenient place to stay. It is right on campus, a short walk from everywhere. You won't need to rent a car, because the inn is also located near several modes of public transportation (bus, subway, and train). Nice but not fancy, the inns' rooms are clean,... More

We booked the Queen suite with a small sitting room while attending a function at Temple and were very satisfied with the accommodations and the hospitality. Knowing the location, we asked for instructions on how to arrive at their parking area, so we had no problem, but I can see how it might be confusing. We found the reception to... More

This hotel is right in the heart of Temple's campus, making is very convenient for campus visitors. The pedestrian square where it's located is pretty, and there is a coffee shop adjoining the hotel lobby. The hotel itself feels a bit shabby, though. It was clean, but the beds, furniture, and bathrooms feel run down. One the plus side, our... More
