Extended Stay America - Philadelphia - Bensalem
Reviewed January 15, 2007

We were looking for a hotel near the new casino in Bensalem and we found it. Right across the street. We went down to the grocery store to pick up a few things to eat because we had a fridge and microwave and two stove elements. Also silverware, plates etc.. It was right across the street from Philadelphia park raceway/casino so we just walked. I'd say it was about 4 blocks distance because the building is off the road a bit. The bed was nice and the front desk staff friendly. There is a mall just down the street and a nice restaurant almost right in the same parking lot. For the price $74., we thought it was a pretty good deal.

I stayed at this particular location for approx 8 days from after Christmas to after New Years. It was my first time staying with this particular chain, so I was unsure of what to expect. My main reason for booking it was the fact that it was affordable for the area and the room had a small kitchenette, thinking I could save on food/eating out.

The room was very nice and clean, and large enough. No extra frills though - no usual amenitites like complimentary pen/paper/etc. They charge for their internet access, which I didn't get, so I can't say if it was worth it or not.

The only real problem I had was our toliet stopped up about three days after we'd checked in and I informed the front desk girl (it was extremely early in the morning, of course, these things never happen during business hours, do they?) and she advised me that she would inform her manager and have someone fix it. I was fine with that as we were heading out to New York for the day and wouldn't be back till later.

Unfortunately, when we got back, the toliet was still stuck. Angry, I went down to the front desk to complain, but the desk manager was there and offered to plunge it herself, so I was appeased. (lol)

Overall, I'd stay at the hotel again, definitely, but next time I will bring my own coffee cream, coffee and dishwashing liquid as well as plates, as the dishes they 'give' you to use during your stay do not last for long and I found myself washing dishes almost every day. Not exactly what I want to do on vacation.

Also of note - the location is very accessible and we had no problems with traffic or getting lost. I enjoyed the fact the hotel is enclosed instead of doors facing out - it makes you feel more secure.

Only negatives would be I think you should be allowed more than just one 'housekeeping token' per week and that the walls are rather thin. It was fine the first part of are stay as no one was around, but after new years the hotel was busier (although nowhere near sold out) and I think they put us all on the same floor, right next to each other. The hallway was busy busy and the noise level was annoying.

My family and I stood here after going to Sesame Place. Worth the stay. The hotel staff was great. The rooms were exceptionally clean and loved the convenience of the small kitchen. Great for families w/children. For the ladies, just note that there are no blow dryers in the room, so you need to either take your own or request it upon check in. Very impressed and Will definitely return!!!!!

My husband and i had a wonderful stay at the Extended Stay America Philadelphia / Bensalem. The people were so friendly. The room was very nice clean and the bed slept well. The only thing i didn't like was when we arrived the king size room we had reserved back in january when we made our reservations was unavailabe so we were given a queen size but it was great. The halls were brighlty lit the laundry room was clean. This Extended Stay America Philadelphia / Bensalem far out passes the Studio plus by the airport thats simuliar to this. Never will we ever stay in that Studio Plus again. See our reviews for that one.
We give Extended Stay America Philadelphia / Bensalem 4 gold stars and would recommend it to all our friends and family. We are looking foward to our trip there next year
