Just across the Delaware River, about 15 minutes outside of Philly, is the Blackwood HoJo. In walking distance you've got a WaWa but that's just about it. Check in and desk staff was fine. The lobby is nice and clean and no riff-raff milling about. A short walk to the building with the rooms and I was pleasantly surprised.
My room was rather large, with a KSB, small balcony overlooking the pool, huge bathroom with a giant tub (it might be called a jacuzzi but there's no jets) and plenty of room to do whatever I needed. It was plenty clean - no issues with cleanliness at all, even though I'd say the furnishings, carpet, linens, etc were old.
I missed breakfast by about 10 minutes but the lady insisted on getting me a couple bananas and a yogurt. Nice!
For Proximity to Philadelphia at a good price - I am not sure you'll find a better room. It's a little dated, and if you want/need to be in the city it's not the place for you, but for the price I'm giving it an Excellent. Would stay there again under the same circumstances for sure.
