We stayed there again this year in April. Things were better, but still not up to the standards of other Comfort Inns we have used. Some rooms must be better than others, because this year was a marked improvement in the quality of the room. Still somewhat shabby, but acceptable. This year, there was a 30% increase in the price of the room from the previous year. Upon checking rates in June 2014, the rates was about $30.00 less that the previous month. This is puzzling, because one would think more people travel in the summer.
Rates were apparently raised for Penn Relays, but I find this price increase excessive. We then checked rates for next year and again, there was another rate increase. You can use there Choice Rewards system, but the rates are paid in advance and you cannot cance without losing your money! There are two restaurants close to the hotel--a plus.
After four visits to this hotel, we have yet to figure out what is going on at this facility. One time bad rooms, poor service--another time a better room and adequate service. Other reviews seem to confirm our opinion. The manager always has a stock reply to unfavorable reviews, but apparently does not follow through.
It is way overpriced for what you get. Again, we will have to decide if we want to stay there again next year. They are pricing themselves out of our range. Stay there, but do not expect what you usually get at a Comfort Inn.
We will check rates across the Franklin Bridge in NJ. The distance to Penn is about the same and there rates are more reasonable.
