My friend and I visited Philadelphia for New Years and we were looking for a cheap hotel to stay a few nights.
Before booking this hotel we read all of the reviews and we were very suspicious, but we decided to go ahead and book it anyway because of the price being extremely good.
After staying there for 4 nights (December 29th, 2007 - January 2nd, 2008) we both agree, there is NOTHING wrong with this hotel. The room was clean and in a good shape. The bathroom was very clean and had no problems at all (hair-dryer works excellent). The A/C was working great, so did the TV and the mini-refrigerator.
Sleeping was no problem at all, the beds were fine and the sheets nice and clean. We had room service daily. The radio-alarm clock was working properly and we used it every day.
There's HIGH speed Internet connection in the room but NOT wireless. So, make sure to have an ethernet (internet) cable with you to use with your laptop. It works great and it is super fast.
Sure, the staff at the front desk is not the best but, hey, you are not staying at the Desert Riviera! Although they were very helpful and we had no problems with them. Also, the location was very good, just 10 miles away from downtown.
The fact that you are able to park your car just outside the room it's, for us, a plus. The whole facility is fenced so it's safe. You can have a nice continental breakfast at the restaurant next to the hotel, although we never ate there as we had time and preferred to drive in the city and have breakfast in a better location with better view.
Overall, we recommend this hotel if you are looking for a CHEAP staying close to the airport and the city. It's not special but it's clean and has everything you will need for a night or two and you can't loose with that price.
