Meets essential needs for a OK price.

It's an OK place for the price. Had a little trouble with the airport shuttle (it uses the Holiday Express vehicle but is not a Holiday Express hotel) but once I got to my room it was a good stay. Nice views of the river in the morning and some good places to eat within walking distance.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There's a cheesesteak place called Big Joe's within a 15 minute walk. Check it out, it's delicious.

Surprised

I was surprised going into the hotel because it's in the alley basically next to comfort inn. The outside wasn't the best looking but the room was definitely a lot nicer than expected . It was clean which I loved but again outside made me a little weary to stay. I would stay there for the price .

Inexpensive & Practical

I'm writing this review after spending 1 night at the Airport Waterfront and 1 night at the Sheraton in downtown Philly. The Airport Waterfront Inn was half the price of the Sheraton with free parking and a great view on the water. They were both the same cleanliness. And the Waterfront Inn had a better shower! Only downside would have been if we didn't go out on Friday night and wanted to go to sleep before 2am with the loud music from the bar next door.

disappointing

The beds were very uncomfortable, the bathroom was the bare minimum. The airport shuttle service was fine. Will never stay there again and I will always call and talk to people at motels to ask questions.

Don't know where to start!

First of all, the hotel is right next door to a night club. Terrible location!!! Did not feel safe nor comfortable staying for even one night. I had a reservation for 2 night however as soon as I went to the room, I walked right back out. Unfortunately I could not get my money back but believe me when I say that it didn't bother me a bit. There's a Holiday Inn Express next door and although a bit more expensive it was well worth it.

Well where do I start

Well, when we checked in at 5:00 pm all was great. Staff was nice, place was pretty. Went to get something to eat came back got ready to go to sleep because we had to get up at 4:30 am the next day for a charity run and then take off at the airport later in the day for vacation. Just layed my head down about 10:00 pm and it all started the music pounding, loud as if it were right in my room. I have a migrain problem and the base of the music was just non-stop for four hours. We had two rooms and one of our party in the other room actually sleep in the bathroom to get away from the sound. Not one person/staff member warned us of this music problem with the rooms. Never again will I ever stay there. When we complained the next day the gentleman who checked us out just smiled and shrugged his shoulders. So please let future guest who want to reserve rooms here know about this horrible experience. I rated all above not good because no matter what was good about this place was trumped by the bad music experience. One last thing: good thing I did not have a young child with me because the music was not appropriate for them.

Clean and comforable, but no extras

This hotel is more than adequate for a one or two night stay. Clean, comfortable and quiet with free Wifi. No complaints.

Never go there again

The room stinks, the hotel is next door by a night club that iorganizes outdoor parties. I couldn t sleep almost the whole night because of the loud noise. The staff is not competent and rude and do not have any customer service skills. If you have any other possibilities, just avoid going to this hotel
