Work Trip

This hotel was fine for a one night work trip. It was good enough and the price was very affordable. Will stay again the next time I have to go for work.

Overnight work trip

This is a good hotel for a one or two night work trip. It is suitable for short stays and gets the job done. I will stay here again the next time I have to travel to Folcroft, PA for work.

skeptical after reviews-lone traveler

I was skeptical after the reviews, but they all turned out to be completely wrong. The staff was more than helpful, there was a shuttle too and from the airport that was more than convenient, room was extremely clean, and was much nicer than I expected. Also parking was free and breakfast was acceptable. I am a 21 year old traveling by myself for interviews and was looking for a cheap hotel to do homework and sleep in, I was happily pleased with it.

Good value

Average hotel. Given the price of hotels downtown, it is great value for the money. The hotel runs a shuttle to the airport, and from there the train takes half an hour to the center.

Close to Industrial Prkway

If you have business to attend in industrial parkway then its ideal place to stay .Hotel shares parking lot and breakfast with Quality Inn ( As both are part of Choice Hotels) .Econo is better of two and i stayed in both .Wifi was available .King bed was good and bathroom was functional.Floor was bad but well carpeted .If want to stay day or two can`t go wrong with price and location .

Not if you want to sleep.

The room is clean. Problem, ypu hear everything. There must have been 10 people in the room above us, amd they appeared to be living there. Screaming kids and people hanging out on the balcony all night. There were people just hanging out every where. Noisy all night. Not safe feeling at all.

OK Stay

I take a trip to Vegas twice a year and always stay here the night before. It's close to the airport and used to be cheap. Had to get a 2nd room as the first one had the cable ripped out of the tv and the template for the phone had been removed so you could not dial, which made me question if the room had been checked before it was rented. 2nd room was better but the batteries in the remote were dead. I used to get this room for about $49.00 which made it worth it. Rate has crept up to $70.00 and it really is NOT worth it at that price. This will probably have been my last stay there.

Good value for a forced overnight at PHL

Very considerate staff in a completely ordinary 25 year-old (?) property. The shuttle is very good, and it takes no longer to the terminals than the shuttle from hotels that seem to be much closer to the airport. If there is a dingy smell in your room (as if it used to be a smoking room, but is now non-smoking), then just ask for some air freshener to be applied by the housekeeper. If you have no vehicle, then you can eat at the McDonald's, which is 1/4 mile down the road to the west.
