“Super Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

My partner and I stayed here in late June - I forget the date! Anyway, my partner made the reservation and I was a little skeptical when I realized how close we would be to downtown Philly. No worries though, it's a nice neighborhood with some cool and funky homes and it's super close to great places to see.

Minutes from the museum and the old Penitentiary (which the Innkeeper gave us tickets to), and a hop from the historic area of Philly.

Parking is on street, but you have to expect that this close to everything! Not a problem for us as we were able to park right in front.

Innkeepers were very pleasant as were the other guests. The continental breakfast was quite acceptable with good choices provided. The Inn is roomy and very clean with a terrific front porch to relax on in the evening with a cup of java.

Cornerstone proved to be a friendly place as advertised....the owners/operators are casually
engaging and provide treats and a good continental breakfast ....the room was attractive and very clean...the soap dispenser proved a trial--as the soap portion requires application of heft and persistence in order to generate parsimonious amounts of liquid soap. The shampoo dispenser
proved less of a challenge.

Room Tip: Make sure you have ample air conditioning in the stifling Philadelphia summer .

Stayed at the Cornerstone during a recent family visit to Philly. Happy that children were allowed and welcomed - not always the case at B&Bs. The staff was welcoming and friendly - they even went the extra mile and gave us a ride to the train station when our cab did not arrive on time. Great location - close to the art museum and zoo which we enjoyed as a family.

We were given a gift certificate to stay at the Cornerstone Bed and Breakfast for one night. The proprietor was super friendly and welcoming. The room was comfortable and clean. We spent a nice hour or so relaxing on the porch in the evening. In addition to Drexel U. and the University of Pennsylvania Museum and other parts of the campus, the inn is easy walking distance from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Barnes and the Eastern State Penitentiary Museum. The continental breakfast was actually a selection of "good old American" choices and quite substantial. The gift certificate was a wonderful gift.

we stayed here for one night while taking our daughter for a college tour. its a small house converted into rooms. i dont like large hotels so this was great for us. the rooms we got were lovely. service was very good. the owners run and manage themselves so lots of attention to detail. great breakfast which was included. parked across the street. my wife got to do the laundry in the machines on premises.
i would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a quiet, smaller place to stay which is different from a hotel and very personable.

Room Tip: if you want two rooms with a small lounge and a common bathroom area, take the Continental Suite. Bi...

Our family filled three rooms at the Cornerstone B&B for our son's graduation from Drexel University. The owners of Cornerstone helped to make a very special event even more memorable by allowing us to host a catered dinner for our family in their dining room followed by dessert and wine on the front porch. The beauty and character of the house gave our graduation dinner an extra special ambiance. The B&B is perfect for anyone visiting Drexel. There are a number of fraternities and residence halls within a two block radius and it is an easy walk to the entire campus. The Train Station is an easy walk or about a $5.00 cab fare.
