Small but really clean

The room was small, and the remote didn't work (every button made the volume go up#, but the room was VERY clean. The staff was really nice and friendly. It doesn't have any extras, but it was the 2nd cheapest hotel in Philly #and the other one had terrible reviews saying that it was filthy). This was a great value for the price, and I'd stay there again.

Great stay

For a one night stay, the room was quiet, quaint, and clean. Close to market street and cheap parking garages!

Cheap and good location, but...

I stayed here for a conference at the nearby Marriott. It's located right across the street from the convention center and close the market east station and reading terminal. The rooms were fine, basically what you would expect. However, a couple of disappointing things... First, our room was on first floor right in the lobby near the front desk. It was pretty weird, but I suppose they did what they could with their space. You could also hear everyone coming down the stairs or coming off the elevator. A little uncomfortable to wake up in the morning, pull back the curtains, and see the brick wall of the convention center across the street and a construction worker looking back at me... Second, which was a HUGE no-no, was that after a full day at the conference, I returned to the hotel room to find that the door was left OPEN using the security latch. The housekeeping staff, who came in to clean, left it open for about a couple of hours! Anyone could have walked right in! Fortunately, we put our things in the safe, but that was just unacceptable, especially with the room being right off the lobby!!

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.

Travelodge Hotel

The Travel lodge Hotel in Philly was great for the money. The staff were very nice and I enjoyed my stay. I think the breakfast could have been a little better but was still good.

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.

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 bad

when people stay at hotels they have a certain thing they are looking for. Each person knows what they want. when reading the reviews on this hotel i could have been turned away but because of the location and price i gave it a shot and what do you know, it worked for me. It was what i was looking for. so dont base this review on what you are looking for.

Worth it for the night definitely

I'm glad I was able to book the place at such short notice and considering the price considering its proximity to the city center. My only concern really is that the rooms weren't terribly sound proof so you can hear the maids doing their cleaning routine far easier than one might like, and all other guests in the hallway's actions and conversations are too easily discerned.
