Very Loud

Would recommend Mon, Jun 30, 2014
It would have been a nice stay if the sewage pipes didn't run right through our room. Every time anyone on the 3rd floor flushed or washed their hands, we could hear it! The halls also echo, so when people talk out there, it's like they're right there in the room with you Other than that, it was clean, relatively close to Philly and they allow for dogs to stay.

Visiting my son at Temple

Would recommend Mon, Oct 15, 2012
I love this hotel. I've stayed here several times. It is quaint. The continental breakfast in the morning is very nice. The staff is so helpful and friendly. The rooms are nicely decorated. Its on campus so for visiting students, its the best. Parking is reasonably priced.

Campus location but with some flaws

Would not recommend Thu, Jun 17, 2010
Great on campus location and the rooms are large with comfortable beds. However, there are serious considerations and drawbacks - - Very difficult to find this place, it is accessed by driving down a long alley with no signage helping to guide you. - Don't count on close parking. There are a sum total of 8 parking spaces for a 80+ room hotel. Overflow must park several blocks away at a difficult to find parking garage. Construction projects and one way streets make finding this garage at night a 30 minute odyssey. - You better be out exactly at noon or you can expect incessant phone calls and knocking on your door. (Sure, once is enough)

Gem in Philadelphia

Would recommend Thu, Aug 13, 2009
Located on the Temple University campus,this was a lucky choice. The reasonable cost (off- season for college visitors)was a major factor in choosing this inn. However the location (10 minutes from downtown), attractive, spacious and immaculate room and charming service made this a real find.

Great location

Would recommend Mon, Aug 25, 2008
The Conwell Inn is a cute, intimate hotel located on the Temple University campus run, I hear, by the hotel management department on campus. The room was spacious and very comfortable. It would be helpful if the hotel had a list of nearby restaurants (other than fast food).

Unique hotel location

Would recommend Tue, Aug 12, 2008
The Conwell Inn is a nice, quiet hotel. The rooms are unique with a couple steps and a railing - more like a den area for sleeping. It's right in the middle of Temple University's campus, and there were plenty of restaurants & snack shops within walking distance. The only down side was that it was hard to find (even our GPS got confused) - and I finally had to call the hotel for directions. Plus the family had planned to go swimming, but the pool is in a University building and closed around 5:30 PM. Otherwise, a great place to stay!


There is a pizza place and convenience store right around the corner, plus other dine-in restaurants a few blocks away.
