The hotel is excellent compared to the price. I think travelleres can't get such an affordable and valuable hotel in downtown Philadelphia, so strongly recomand everybody to get it.

Second time to stay at this location; convenient to downtown; with the convention center across the street, I felt safe; good stores within walking distance.

The choice of this hotel was dictated by location for the downtown historic sites and it is excellent being adjacent to the Convention Centre. What they fail to tell you is that it is next door to a hostel so if you are female and single it might not be the place for you! I also required parking and they is discounted parking two blocks down but you only find this out when you check in and the rest of the parking a little expensive. Overall the breakfasts were adequate and the rooms clean & comforable but was also unaware that I needed to leave a $50 deposit which was not immediately offered back on Check-Out ..... had to request it and then wait for the computer to say "yes". Beware or you might lose your stake!

The staff are very friendly and helpful. Considering the cost of renting a car and paying for parking, the location was key for me as I actually saved money by staying in this location, close to my work. It is a bit pricey for a Travel Lodge but everything is within walking distance and the service was really great!

We checked into the hotel late at night and went to bed. Upon getting up in the morning, we realized how dirty our room was. There was hair in the bathtub, on the toilet, and on the bathroom floor. There was shampoo on the tub floor where it had been spilled/dumped or whatever and you see it. The floor in our room had food deposits on it, where it looked like someone had spilled/dropped food and it wasn't cleaned up. Like when you drop something and just picked it up but did not try to shampoo or wash that area. There were remnants of crumbs or something on the floor and paper like our room had not been swept since the last guest.

When we tried to take a shower, our tub drain would not drain and I was standing in almost a foot of water when i was done. My wife had to wait til later to take a shower because it took almost two hours to drain. The female desk clerk was bitky and smart assed with me when i went downstairs to ask for another room. She told me I would have to pack everything up on their cart and bring it down to the front desk and leave it at the front desk and if a guest checked out, they would allow us to switch rooms later.She said we had to do this so they could rent the room to someone else that had booked because they were booked up.
I told her i was not going to leave my belongings in the lobby all day while i went to the convention center and she said: "well, I guess you dont want another room then do you?" The next morning when we got up we saw at least a dozen rooms with the curtains open, indicating that the rooms were empty. So, the clerk lied to me.

The safe in our room didnt work either as it kept saying the battery was dead. There was food deposits on the curtains in the room also. The carpeting just felt gross, made even more so by the fact that we could see food, paper bits, etc on the floor. By the way, they have no parking here, you have to find your own parking in one of the nearby lots. Breakfast consists of sugar frosted flakes and raisin bran, cheap nasty banana and blueberry muffins and apples. The first morning there was no orange juice and the second morning there was no coffee left.

Another wonderful fact, there is a an open area that goes from the first floor to the top floor of the hotel. Which means, you hear the hotel room doors open and shut on all the floors of your room. At 630 one morning, we could hear a couple yelling at each other, and it wasnt on our floor. You can the desk clerk talking word for word to a customer if you are on one of the higher floors. The sound travels all the way up to the roof. It was impossible to sleep after 6am any day because you heard every door open and shut and every person talking no matter which floor you stay on. Oh and the homeless shelter is next door, if you dont mind everytime you go outside to have a homeless person walk up or past you.

If you stay here after this post, I have no sympathy for you if your stay is horrible.

Room Tip: bring a fan to cover up the noise and your own cleaning equipment to clean your room, because they w...

This is a terrible hotel, our hotel room had hair on the floor in the bathroom, food crumbs on the floor like the room hasn't been swept since the last guest stayed, and I took a shower and the tub did not drain for over an hour. I was standing in six inches of water at the end of my shower. It was still draining an hour later.
