Great location. Room was small, but extremely clean (even by my standards) Had everything we needed, (microwave and fridge) Bathroom was awesome, the only thing I can compain about is the lack of tissues! Front desk- Richard-went way beyond what you would expect. In all our travels, have never encountered such service from a desk clerk! Double his pay- definitely... More

The price line system and hotel system seems dismatch, when I arrive the hotel, I found my reserve of the coming week has been concelled (by a mis-operation either in hotel or price line side, I guess) while in price line, I still reserve the hotel (and already been charged ) so they did not realize the problem. The room... More

Stayed here for 3 days for job training. All was smooth, staff is friendly and professional. No issues with room or staff. It's not the Waldorf, but well worth what my employer paid for. I let my supervisor know to recommend to fellow employers who will be in town for future trainings. Special thanks to housekeeping and the evening front... More

The staff makes the difference! The people working the Rodeway Inn were the best. They gave us great tips on dinning and getting around the city. Amber suggested a local Mexican restaurant called El Vez that was amazing. When you visit a new city getting help like this can make an OK trip into a great trip. Amber and the... More

Marvelous Hotel.... The Front Desk Manager Brian and his staff were very welcoming and accommodating. We will absolutely stay again in the very near future. I'd definitely recommend ! The surrounding Area offers so much convenience. The diverse options for food and other businesses offering could be overwhelming. Just a wonderful experience.

We were a bit nervous about a "Rodeway Inn" in downtown Philly. We thought it might be for truckers (working men) and not the best place. This hotel is AWESOME! There are some realistic downsides: Small elevator, small hallways, outside city noises (construction, etc.). Strangely we could not control the heat from inside the room but the front desk helped...

I tried to book the hotel on line through Trip Advisor 2 blocks from the hospital as my husband was in critical condition. The site told me the reservation did not go through due to an unknown error.

I booked a room at this hotel on TripAdvisor. After checking in, I found out that the room has a bathroom down the hall, not in the room. When I went back to the front desk, I had to pay $40 more per night to get an in-room bathroom. I'm out $80!!! The front desk person was very nice, and... More

TripAdvisor will remove this response but until they do here is the scoop. Companies like TripAdvisor are not reservation companies they are "Information collecting companies". They want your name, credit card number, address and pin and once they get it they resell it to every company out there willing to pay. Then they make a reservation for you. My suggesiton... More
