Great Service

Every time I have stayed here I've gotten great service from a responsive staff. They're always eager to help. On this last trip the hot water didn't work and rather than move me to a similar room on the same floor they gave me a room with a jacuzzi at no extra cost. The hotel is conveniently located and the view of the bridge at night is great.

Average, basic hotel

There was nothing terribly wrong about this old town modern hotel, but then there was nothing perfectly right about it either. Located right slap bang on the expressway, it was close to Old town, but not immediately accessible. We had to walk--and I like walking, but if I were on my own at 1am, it would have been creepy--along the expressway to the Seaport Museum before we could find a staircase to takes us to the bridge and cross in Old Town, Philly. So location-wise it wasn't the best. The room was modern and clean, the breakfast was fine. Checking in was a bit of a cluster, but I have no real complaints.

Good stay

Pretty good stay for the price. A little expensive but considering your in Philadelphia that's what u pay for. Beds were comfy room was clean. Only on 2nd floor so only view was bush. Didn't eat free breakfast. We were in hurry and was crowded. I would stay again. Downfall was you had to pay 25.00 to park. But agIn I knew that going in

very nice affordable hotel

We were in town for a music festival across the river in Camden. The hotel was a short walk to the ferry Our room was nicely decorated and the beds were very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was very impressive. They had everything from fruit and cereal to make your own pancakes and all kinds of breakfast sandwiches. I would recommend to friends and family..

Family Trip

This was the only hotel I could find in our budget. The area is not great and the room was quite dirty but it worked for us to visit Philly with the family. The shuttle dropped us off on the historic district. We had to cab back because the shuttle does not operate during the middle of the day (before 4) and we had to get back to make it to a Phillies game. The breakfast is ample but very crowded.
