Or in this case, probably less than you paid for. First tip off, the office is small, dated and dirty. The "breakfast bar" is right there, very tired looking, so definitely skip that. Room poorly cleaned, bedding old, mattress old, uncomfortable. Owners have installed flat screen TV's which only get one station. It's almost like they think a flat screen... More

I must admit the photo of this nice little room with the hardwood floors is very accurate, but keep in mind it's not a close up. What is not shown in the photo is the dirty old musty couch, bugs, and filthy bathroom. This place is filthy and the office is a clear sign it's a dump. Not worth the... More

We booked a room here for a night because we have a flight in the morning. It is DISGUSTING. We have infant twins. Infant cribs are clearly listed under the amenities on all online listings. They don't have any. The pictures posted online are deceiving. The exterior of the building is falling apart. Our room is filthy. The owner and... More

Decent price for a motel near the airport. Old, but renovated rooms. Clean and a wonderful view from my room. Kind of Retro with the old iron railings and metal stairs. Free airport shuttle! Friendly staff. The TV ONLY works on one channel and I can't reach the front desk by pushing the Front Desk button on the phone; but... More

The most disgusting experience we've ever had in our life with a hotel. We arrived at the hotel at 4:00AM, after a long drive, to find no one attending the front desk, but a message by the door asking to check in at the hotel next to it. When we finally got our keys, while waking up to our rooms,... More

We had a forced overnight due to a flight cancellation and I think our attendant thought she was booking into something 'better' than holiday inn express.....it is not. This is several steps below the bed was comfortable - the customer service was good - the remodel was not too bad either. No it did not have bed bugs as reported... More

I was worried about staying here because of some of the other reviews that I have read. This is a good deal for the price. The rooms were clean, the front desk attendant was nice, and the views of the River is wonderful. As long you aren't looking for some luxury place to stay, this is the best bang for... More

Got in to Philadelphia very late and the staff had anticipated our needs quite satisfactorily. They were courteous and professional and the room was clean and comfortable, a great surprise given the cost was well less than comparable rooms in the area!!! The breakfast was simple but adequate. This would be my first choice for an overnight stay near PHL.

This place is a dump. Disgusting room had visible dirt on the wall, crumbling plaster, a hole below the window that you could see outside. The door didn't even shut all of the way, the microwave and fridge had spills on the exterior. And BEDBUGS everywhere! We left in less than 5 minutes. Never again. Don't be deceived by the... More

My partner and I booked this hotel at the last minute due to price and location. The name sound promising. OMG when we got there we were scared to go in but realized that we came in on the back side but front of hotel. To get to the Lobby entrance you must walk to about mid-building. After getting past...
