Days Inn Philadelphia Convention Center

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Everything was OK with the hotel. Not great, not bad. The room was smaller then expected and quite confined with no windows which was surprising.

Traveled from Charlotte to Philadelphia for one night only this hotel had good reviews got there in the evening and was greeted by the homeless men which were nicer than the clerk at the front desk, after checking in the 1st room 306 had multiple roaches and after complaining was told our only option was another room and no refund with an additional $50 hold on card so due to the long drive we chose another room 502 which was clean and no roaches we slept with every light on and in our clothes we check out at 9:30 am terrible, old and needs a major extermination looks like a prison no windows......Do Not Stay here the worst ever!!!!!

Room wasn’t the cleanest, no parking for the hotel, unless you want to pay and have to check out at early hours in the morning. No window to look out of. Weirdest building I’ve ever seen a hotel in. Would not reccomend.

The hotel is right next to the Convention Center and it is clean. Some of the appliances have wear and tear but all functional. Breakfast was good and the staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

- pictures on site do not give an actual impression of hotel - very loud, rooms have thin walls can hear guests next room and everything in hallway - rooms are clean but run down - rooms are much smaller than expected for price

El hotel es bueno más q todo el desayuno está muy cerca de todo solo las recepcionistas no son muy comunicativas les falta ser un poco más agradables de ahí todo estuvo bien

There was noise the entire night.. the walls were paper thin and the room was cold no matter how high I set the thermostat

No window to outside. Room quite small and basically in the lobby. Able to hear every dm single entrance and exit you the hotel. A/C didn't work. I think marijuana should be legal, but the entire hotel shouldn't smell of it or any other smoke for that matter.

We decided to stay here because it offered a breakfast and parking garage. I parking garage is 2 blocks away. The roads were blocked by the police, forcing me to park at the parking garage, unloading my small children and all our stuff, and walking 2 blocks to the hotel. Not fun! Then our room was a hole in the wall, with clumps of long black hair everywhere. The breakfast was ok. I would pay the extra money and get a hotel closer to the historic district.

Although my room had decent finishes, it was dirty and not well maintained.

No gym, no free parking, no refrigerator in the room, fire alarm was triggered during routine maintenance at 7:30a.m., air conditioner quit working, got a $75 parking ticket during check in . Having said that, the staff was friendly and courteous. AC was eventually fixed. Location is within walking distance to many touristy destinations. Was fine for my guys weekend but I wouldn't bring my wife and kids.

The room itself was clean, but clearly highly used and not updated. The cushions and ironing board all had stains. The ceiling and shower area walls were cracked and peeling. The A/C did not work. Despite being set to 60 degrees, it remained 80 for the entire two days. I used the room solely for sleeping and getting dressed, so it met my bare minimum needs.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Close to city attractions.

Very pleasant staff. Room was comfortable,quiet and adequate.

We arrived to the hotel early 2 pm for a 3 on check in waited the hour to find that there were no available rooms still at 3 pm most of the rooms were ready after 4 our room was tiny we stayed for 3 nights and had no service we hard too ask for our garbage to be taken out and for coffee soap etc.that was after 6 pm when we returned to the room and found it the same way we left it we were told that they were short staffed the first day but it seemed our entire stay they were short staffed.

Days Inn was very hard to find. Many one way streets. Should have directions.(right behind convention center where flower show is held). No personal parking. Better to walk and has places to go. Should have directions to and from airport. If you know that area that's great.

Its was cold the heater did not work, I called and complain but nothing was done about it.

Nothing fancy but good for the price and exactly what we needed and near all the action of the city

Location was perfect for the cost. In the heart of center city and within walking distance of many main attractions.

Tiny rooms. Bath, toilet on one side of room, sink on the other out in the room. No privacy for more than one person.
