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.

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.

"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".

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.

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.

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.

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.
