What a great place and experience. From the staff to the view and the room every part of it was exceptional. We ready booked our next stay. I highly recommend this motel!!! The room was beautiful and comfortable. Plenty of parking and close to a lot of great places to visit and eat.

I'm not sure if this place is a hotel or a motel being English but it was very nice considering what I paid for it. The staff were very friendly and it was about 10mins from the airport. I was travelling alone so I was a bit wary of my surroundings but I would say I would stay there again.... More

Best value for money. If you are picking most economical night stay due to flight issues, do consider them. The staff is super helpful and although breakfast was not included they offered a complimentary healthy one. They were very accomodative with young kids. Thanks fellows.

We knew this was a small, family-run hotel, but chose it because of the liberal parking policy. It shares a large parking lot in the little suburb of Essington with a Holiday Inn. This allows you to use the shuttle from the Holiday Inn at no charge. It is a short distance from the Philadelphia airport. It has been upgraded... More

I made the mistake of booking at this hotel when the hotels near the convention center were booked for a scientific conference. There were other places with restaurants within a few blocks walking distance. This hotel has a Holiday Inn Express next door which I should have booked. I never eat the breakfast and guests at this hotel try to... More

Do not stay here unless you have absolutely no other options. Here's the hit list: 1. Hair left strewn about the bathroom floor and sink 2. Undetermined smell throughout the room 3. Furniture falling apart 4. Holes in walls 5. Sheets seemed dirty 6. Free breakfast = store-bought cereal put in a plastic container 7. The external door didn't close... More

My wife and stayed two days at the Waterfront in Essington this month. The free shuttle meant we could get the train from the airport and visit Philadelphia with ease. The building is old but the setting, by the river, is a plus. Simple little breakfast but no complaints there. Short term or overnight is fine. Wifi was a bit... More

Our flight was cancelled and everything else was booked since it was the Democratic convention. GROSS describes it. I requested new linens since I couldn't tell if the sheets were dirty or stained. We slept with only the sheets since I had no idea if the comforter was clean or not. The bathroom was disgusting! If you ever have a... More

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
