Great value for money

I was in Philadelphia for business and wanted a budget hotel with great value, and Microtel fully satisfied this. The hotel is a short shuttle ride to the airport, and it's a 5 minutes walk to the Eastwick train station, and a half an hour train journey downtown. There were some earlier reports of nasty rooms, but the room I was given was spotless and comfortable. Wifi is provided for free, as is a basic breakfast. For lunch or dinner Ruby Tuesday is a short walk away.

There is a Ruby Tuesday within walking distance of the Hotel. This hotel has 24-hour airport pick-up. The drivers were very nice and we were picked up within minutes of calling the van at it was early in the morning.

DUMP!

Wow, my Mom always said "if you don't have something nice to say,,," BUT I have to warn you about this place. From the start, it took 40 minutes for the free airport shuttle to arrive. Keep in mind the hotel is only 5 minutes from the hotel. When I arrived I found the staff to be inattentive and unfriendly. WAY more interested in their very loud personal conversations in some non-English language. The room was not clean, the bed was uncomfortable and the blanket flimsy and thin. The noise from the parking lot and the other rooms was considerable and the clientele seemed to be a mixture of junkies, friends of the staff, criminals and hookers. The main common room downstairs (where you can eat breakfast if you dare) was absolutely FILTHY. Look, if you need to stay near the airport and you don't want to pay for the Marriott, there is a Hampton Inn right down the street that looked like the Waldorf compared to this filthy dump. Stay there instead.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

There are ABSOLUTELY NO amenities at this hotel. If you stay here (and you shouldn't) make sure you have whatever you need. Cigarettes, toothpaste, a snack...there is NOTHING walkable from this place except a Ruby Tuesday. But that doesn't matter because you're smart and wont stay here.

Over Night Flight

We have stayed here before and we will stay here again. It is perfect location to start a trip. You can park your car and shuttle to the airport. This trip we had a next day connecting flight. We shuttled to the hotel in the evening and then back again the next morning. Shuttles run 24x7 every half hour! We find it economical to stay and park here prior to an early morning departure.

Philly Microtel

The hotel was clean and convenient, we waited just minutes for the shuttle, and was within walking distance of public transportation. It would have been nice to see some fresh fruit on the breakfast bar.

Great stay for the Army / Navy Game

My USMA Cadet son and I stayed for the weekend to attend the Army / Navy Game. This hotel was located a very easy ride to Lincoln Financial Field (in fact it was very convenient to all of the Philadephia Sports complexes). The room was clean, and there was very little if any road noise. The complimentary breakfast was nothing to brag about but it was fine. There are not too many restaurants near the hotel (only Ruby Tuesdays) but we were more interested in downtown fare anyway. The drive was easy to get to downtown, and the traffic was light, even for a game day. I highly recommend.

Fair Price

Location is everything. My room was clean, but small. Close to the airport and the hotel provided shuttle service. If you're on a tight budget and traveling for business, this hotel is in walking distance of the R1 rail service which will take you into downtown Philly. Unfortunately, that's where good news ends. There is only one restaurant in the area and you'll either have to have a rental car or catch a cab to go anywhere else unless you want to ride the train into town for dinner. The free breakfast is a donut (or banana) and coffee. The staff lacks customer service, they seemed more concerned with watching TV and surfing on their computer than actually providing actual customer service. Be careful, if you ask for anything at the front desk you may be stared (or talked to) at as if you have a 3rd eye. Most notably, you'll seem more like an irritant than a valued customer. And if you used [...] or another similar service, check your bill during check-in and during check-out because staff seemed to be confused in both cases and tried to charge my credit card. Ugh!

convenient & economical

Came to Philly to attend a weekend workshop downtown. Needed to keep costs down as much as possible. Got room here for about 2/3 the cost of anything near the event. This motel is within sight of a train stop that will take riders into downtown Philly quickly and cheaply. Easy walk. There's a Ruby Tuesday a short walk in the other direction (I had my meals in town). When I arrived the staff informed me I was upgraded to a suite at the same price--nice! Note: if you are troubled by traffic noise it is important to ask for a room facing west. Heavy traffic all night on the east side.
