This very worn budget hotel is in need of an extensive renovation, especially in the public areas. But for a three day stay to attend two 76'ers games this hotel scored OK. The bed was clean and comfortable. The full bathroom was very serviceable with hot shower water. The room's heating system worked fine (it was cold in Philly). The front desk staff was pleasant and helpful. Room 1501 was large with a great view of the Philadelphia Sports Complex which was a safe 20 minute walk to the Wells Fargo Arena. It was odd that the room did not have a closet. No closet would prevent one from staying here for a business trip or a formal event. Several TV channels were frequently unavailable due to "Weak or No Signal" interference. The hotel's continental breakfast food looked stale but one can get a good inexpensive breakfast at the Penrose Restaurant directly across the street. The hotel is a safe 15 minute walk from the Oregon Station subway stop.
