We were visiting Temple with a prospective student (my younger sister) and stayed at the Conwell Inn. The hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. Eric at the front desk was exceptional! They helped us with directions and called cabs for us also. The room wasn't ready when we arrived (we got there at 9:30AM so it was understandable), but they gave us a place to stow our luggage while we went on the college tour. When we arrived our room was ready and we received our keys.
I loved the charm of the rooms. The hotel is in what used to be rowhomes and the charm was definitely there. The room was clean and bright. The bathroom could have been a little better. The shower head strength was a little weak and the drain probably needed a replacement. Other than that, the room was wonderful. We stayed Friday night through to Saturday and yes there were maybe 2 occasions where we heard some voices go by outside. They went by fast around 9PM and after that we didn't hear anything else. But what do you expect from a hotel that is right in the middle of a college campus?
I also enjoyed the fact that there was a computer and printer in the hotel lobby for guest use. The breakfast and snacks in the afternoon were also very nice. Who doesn't love fresh baked warm from the oven cookies?
All in all it was a great stay and if my sister decides to go to Temple, we will definitely stay there again.
