solid hotel bargain centrally located

As a wheelchair user I was disappointed that there are steps inside the front door of the hotel; but there is a small "lift" elavator that, althought it had glitches, accomodated me. The hotel is within walking distance of Old City, China Town, The Franklin Institute, and a variety of restaurants. I would describe pretty much everything else about the hotel as fine, and, as such, it is a good bargain over, for instance, the Holiday Inn.

Honestly

The walls are so thin that u can almost hear everything! from other rooms. You can't have internet access in some of their rooms and you may need to go and sit in the lobby or basement. Prices and location are great. You can walk to everywhere in 5-10 minutes and there is a parking area just behin the hotel(about twenty box/nite). You can't compare the cleaning with a 3-4 stars hotel, it is OK for a couple w/o children. It is very close to Chinatown and just behind the convention center. Go and have you breakfast outside the hotel. It's a good place for one night.

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.

Travelodge

Very convenient location, close to the convention center, train, and within walking distance of lots of Philadelphia sites. However you may want to be aware that hotel is immediately next door to a facility that provides services to the homeless including daily lunch so there are often numerous homeless men in the area who may ask you for change.

philly

the best thing about this hotel is that it's within walking distance to all the things you'd want to see. Unfortunately it was directly behind the convention center, which was under construction, so when you looked out the window, there was invariably a construction worker looking directly back at you.
