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.

Adequate Lodging

The location is pretty close to the good, safe, fun, interesting parts of town, but it's not quite in one of them. When walking out of the hotel, you may encounter a rude schizophrenic man instead of a helpful directions-giver. The hotel itself is pretty small but pretty comfortable. I slept well in the bed, the a.c. worked nicely, the hair dryer was also good, and there was HBO. I only made it to the tail end of the complimentary breakfast, but it seemed to consist of frosted flakes, corn flakes, stale plain bagels and orange juice, though I may have missed better stuff. You shouldn't be wasting your calories on stuff like that anyway. One easy improvement they could make would be to serve more sugar and fake sugar and creamer options in the rooms. Also, the coffee maker didn't work well.

Travelodge Phildelphi

Nice place, nice people, had to park two blocks down and pay $15, did not have a microwave, did not have a fridge, did not have an iron/ ironing board (all things I needed/ could have really used). Other than that great service and right in the heart of center city, next to Hahnemann hospital, which is what I needed most importantly.

What a horrible hotel!

Do not stay at this hotel! There are no other reviews that tell you it's next to a mens homeless shelter! The hotel itself was not great. The rooms are tiny and have no windows! We requested a microwave and they gave us a refrigerator instead! There is no parking we had to pay $15 a day and you have to walk through a dirty alley to get to the parking lot. They have no valet parking either so it can be scary with all the homeless people everywhere. DO NOT STAY HERE! [...]

Clean, courteous

While our hotel room was literally right inside the hotel entrance, between the front door and the front desk, the room was spacious enough, clean, and modern. Outside the hotel was a little trashy, but that's not really Travelodge's fault. The continental breakfast was a tasty (bagels, croissants, small cereal selection, and muffins). Overall very good. We found nearby parking for $5 per day(!) which is unheard of in the city. The parking the hotel recommended was $15/day, so we were happy to find that on our own. The staff was courteous. Not much else to say. It was a positive experience.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Check the nearby area for parking prices before using the hotel's recommended parking spot. The hotel's parking coupon was for $15/day valet (meaning you can't just go to your car). We found a parking garage across from the Drexel building on 15th St. and Spring St. which had a $5/day special. Parking for our entire weekend on ran us $10!
