Great cheap hotel for a not-cheap price.

The Travelodge at the Pennsylvania Convention Center is your typical commuter-style hotel. Unfortunately, you're paying about the same price as you would at the Hilton or Sheraton just down the road, but getting much less. The Travelodge offers no parking, forcing you to park at a near-by outdoor public lot that will run you at least $20 a night. They will not offer any sort of hotel discount or validation. They offer free wi-fi which only worked for about one hour out of my three day stay there. It is currently across the street from an enormous construction project - the kind that even if you're on the top floor, there are still construction workers just outside your window. If you're attending something at the Convention Center, the location is perfect. But, as stated before, there are other hotels that are much nicer at the same price.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

If you're not from Pennsyvlania but want some local taste, there's a market just around the corner that is enormous, filled with every type of food (mostly local/organic) and staffed almost exclusively by the Amish.

Close to Chinatown

My room was "non smoking" yet I could smell the smoke coming from my neighbors room.

Yuck!

Hotels in Philadelphia are very expensive. So I wasn't expecting much for $130 at a Travellodge. The room was fine and seemingly clean. The bathroom worked fine. But I woke up with bug bites. It ruined the trip.

Tavelodge Philadelphia

I appreciated he convenience of being acrss the street from the Convention Center, and the ease of walking to other areas around the city. The Motel was clean and the staff were helphul. However, there were a few suggestions I left on the exit card: No towel rack next to the sink, unable to regulate the themostat, lite bulbs too low to read by,unable to open the curtains, propably should be replaced by blinds. But, these wee minor and I did enjoy my stay.

Not Worth it

Was in ok location, but was not worth how much we paid for it, and the next night paid the same to stay at the Comfort Inn on the water with an outstanding view. The rooms at TravelLodge were tiny and the place was very dingy. The only thing nice was that there was a continental breakfast. Would pay more money to stay somewhere else.

good bad & ugly

Awesome location. Chinatown, convention center, etc. Easy to get to all that I needed. Subway station was but a few blocks away. Unfortunate that it was warmer outside than my room. Had to get extra blanket to make it through the night. Brrrrrrr

"Thankfully it was only for one night"

Was disappointed in the size of the room and having to pay $50 to park my car. Television volume was broken so we couldn't hear a thing. Management apologized and said "We can't do anything about it".
