The hotel is ok, staff is nice enough, but the traffic noise is pretty bad. We were trying to deal with it by playing white noise. After a late night, and having made sure to put out the "do not disturb" sign on the door we were very unhappy to have house keeping trying to get into the room at...

I'm glad they didn't give this hotel the name downtown because its a long walk to downtown Philadelphia from here. Sandwiched between the Interstate-95 and the riverside road you would expect it to be noisy but somehow the traffic noise did not penetrate into the rooms. A good quality budget hotel with clean spacious rooms with the usual facilities but...

Thank you for taking the time to write this great review, we are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and was not bothered by the street noise at all.

Nice room, good breakfast, good location. Near highway so ask for a room on the non-highway side. Reasonable for Philadelphia as far as price. Parking in a lot next door to the hotel, very convenient and easily accessed.

Hotel is right between 95 and right under the Ben Franklin bridge. Very, very noisy!!! Staff was helpful and room was large, clean, and comfortable. Fitness center only had 2 treadmills and an elliptical machine. Breakfast was pretty bad. I wouldn't stay here again.

It's a small hotel sandwiched between two highways. It seems they discriminate against you if you have a Hotwire booking, we got the worst room in the house across from the elevator on the second floor despite the preferences in my IHG account. Their free breakfasts were totally inedible and worthless with the cheapest food possible. Overall, it's quite cheap,...

The room was very clean and everything was put in its place perfectly with the little important extras included. The mattress was just right for a good nights sleep. The breakfast was fresh and hot and the staff cleaned the tables frequently. The staff was friendly and help. Thanks for the refreshing stay!

Nice hotel. We had kids next door who were knocking on our door every half hour. I called to front desk. It stopped. Good choices for brunch too. Their referral for local restaurant was a great one, I'd go back.
