    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

    The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful with questions. It is extremely convenient to the Temple University campus and the rail line coming from the airport. The subway to downtown and the north is located nearby. There are limited dining options nearby--basic college places that are OK for a quick bite, but you need to have a taxi take... More

    We stayed three nights. On the morning of our first full day, we toured the city, returning at 3pm Our room had not been made up. My husband took the trash to the desk and obtained towels and an apology. The following day, we returned to the room at 2pm and found the beds made and towels, but no replacement... More

    THE GOOD: Great location for a visit to Temple University. Lots of character--it was an historic building and had been maintained fairly well. Large, comfortable rooms--nice beds, great floorplan with unique touches like tasteful woodwork and banisters, and a great TV with pretty good channels. Price--while a bit on the high side, the price was reasonable if you're planning on... More

    I cannot say enough good things about my stay! It far surpassed my expectations. It was clean, cozy, in a great location and at a great price. The staff was overly helpful.

    Stayed one night while visiting my Temple student son. What a lovely and affordable option in the city! I also recommend for those visiting the city sights as all the downtown hotels are outrageously expensive. It is clean, comfortable, and well maintained. I am a sucker for traditional decor and the room was charming. Coffee and cookies in the lobby... More

    My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in Oct. 2014. We chose this hotel over the downtown hotels where his conference was held because it was about $100-$150 less per night. With a parking place reserved (call ahead for this as they only have 10 spaces and 22 rooms!) We were given a hang-tag permit so... More

    We enjoyed our stay at the Conwell. It is, as others have said, right on campus at Temple university. Our primary reason for going to Philly was to visit the historic old city and it was very convenient for that. We used only public transportation so parking wasn't an issue. The Septa train takes you right there from the airport.... More

    I like this hotel. Small, friendly, nice and well equipped rooms. Free coffee, tea, some fruits and cookies in the lobby corner. Located in campus so a bit loudy enviroment but it didn't bother me much. Well located close to trains and metro.
