I really wish I could give this place 3.5 stars as it was above average, but not "very good" which is what the 4 star rating is. Our room was clean and comfortable, but needed some TLC. There were a few broken fixtures, random (small) holes in the wall, etc. The AC unit worked okay...but kept the room kind of... More

Hotel was clean. Service was good on a very busy night. Shuttle was very convenient ride taking me safely to the stadium gate & returning me to the hotel later as arranged. This was important due to the area near the stadium. Wi-Fi did not work & I was unable to get help with that. There were 2 computers available... More

Rented 3 rooms for one nite $68.13/night/each total. Good breakfast. Good location for my needs, clean, newer furnishings, complimentary Philly pretzels. Good experience overall. 2.5 star hotel. Better value for $50 - $55. $68 is too high. Booked on Priceline but Priceline seems to be losing its bargaining power and their fees hinder good values for the buyer. Unusual risky... More

The hotel seems pretty run down, and rooms need a face lift. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. We mainly stayed there for the 24 hour shuttle service, so we can go to the nearby casino. It is at a good location if you are going there as well as the University. Otherwise, there are better options in the airport... More

I attended an event at Widener University and the hotel was within walking distance. The staff was wonderful and checking in and out of the hotel was a breeze. I was really impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel. I also liked the fact that I didn't have to go out for breakfast.

all good, I recommend this hotel. It is a university campus setting with much security and conveniences nearby including main highway connecting to downtown Philadelphia and it's many tourist attractions and public transportation access.

This hotel is very close to the university, and approximately 35 - 40 minutes from Philadelphia. Cheryl and Antoine at the front desk and Geri was in the breakfast room. They were very friendly. The parking lot is shared with a 7Eleven convenience store that closes at 11:00. You may park on the street but the street is very narrow.... More

Waited over 40 minutes for the airport shuttle van to pick me up. Horrible driver. Almost ran into another car at a red light. Hotel construction. Front desk disorganized. No A/C in the breakfast room. Never again. Would rather sleep at the departure gate at the airport !
