Great Value

I booked two nights at below $100 rate. So it was great value for me. The place was very clean. The carpet looked new. The front door was locked at night so there was a sense of security. Continental breakfast was fresh.

OK but not great

They give you free water and cookies! And the staff is really nice. Was a bit noisy though, and small. It is very affordable, but I'd definitely upgrade next time I am in the area and spend the extra on a more spacious and quiet room in a nicer location at a different hotel.

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.

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

AC doesn't work

We stayed at this hotel for the 4th of July. The AC seemed to be running continuously but there was also a portable AC unit in the middle of the small room. Dispite both of these, when we woke up the room was 81 degrees. After realizing the portable unit was empty, we called the front desk. The receptionist told us to fill it ourselves. Once the AC unit was working again the room started to cool down to about 75. The outside temperature was only 61 and overcast but the room never cooled down past 75.

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.
