I love the gracious decoration of the guest rooms. It's like staying with your grandma. If she owned a Victorian mansion. And a complete staff to watch over you. Clean, spacious. Towels and linens were comfy.

Motel was warm and cozy - filled with antiques. The family who owed the motel was lovely and made you feel very welcome. I can say more but the motel is not open any more. I tried staying there this past April and found it was closed.

This was a great little find. Very reasonably priced. The front desk lady was extremely helpful and the room was large and clean. It was a little older and you caught a bit of traffic noise but nothing that was too stressful. I slept well and awoke refreshed.

Phillips Motel is still a motel, but it's very nice with a courteous staff. It gets a 4-star rating because it is the best in its class. All of the rooms are on the ground level, and you park at your room door, which makes it very attractive for handicapped and mobility-challenged travelers. However, it does have major upgrades. It...

We had another restful, enjoyable long weekend at the Phillips. Jan and George handle the office during the week and John on the weekends. We always stay in one of the rooms at the back of the property, always quiet back there. Some like to watch the traffic on US 15/11 so they stay in the rooms in front. Either... More

On a recent drive from Buffalo to North Carolina, I wasn't sure if I could make Selinsgrove as a overnight stopover or not so I didn't book a hotel in advance. Having said that, I had planned on staying at the Comfort Inn if I did make it and they had availability. But as I drove down Route 15 at... More

This motel was a delight to stay in. Each room is decorated differently and there is lots of space in the room. There was good lighting and a lovely desk to use for the WiFi in the unit. Small frig and microwave were a nice touch. The unit was spotless and the linens of top quality. Some folks might find... More

Like other reviews, I did smell a musty smell when I first walked into my room but it didn't bother me. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. My mom was with me, and she could hear water running through the pipes at night. The staff was very nice and the grounds were clean. I look forward... More
