Econo Lodge Philadelphia Hotel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Close the the Philadelphia Airport with reliable shuttle. Some efforts to update the room, but door didn't seal so I had flies in the room. Also the room had a bad smell coming from the HVAC unit.

I only stayed one night because I missed my connecting flight, and I needed an affordable place to stay that had transportation to the hotel and back to the airport,so it was a ok place for the price, so I would stay again if I needed to.

Not recommended. Dirty room and bath. No coffee maker. People in the neighborhoıd making noise after midnight...

The bed was dirty the room dingy and the refrigerator was filthy

The TV didn't work. Need to invest is new linen and towels and washcloths. The door was missing the security latch.... a big no no ! The free breakfast didnt happen it looked like people walked in off the street to have breakfast.Other than that it was a great evening.

The hotel is run down not worth 40 bucks let alone the 80 it cost.

We were planning on using airport shuttle but were afraid to leave our car there for the week. We ended up driving to airport parking.

Checked in around midnight. I was given keys and opened it to find people in the room. That is crazy. Smoking room (didn't know) that had a horrible smell. Everything dirty and run down. Continental breakfast in the Quality Inn next door and that hotel looked like it was in the same deplorable condition. The shuttle to and from the airport was the only positive to mention. They should charge $45/night at most, and guest beware!!

Shabby, broken furniture, scary clientele who party in upstairs rooms and keep you awake all night. Spring for a better hotel if you can

Appropriate value for the price. Friendly staff, close to airport, free shuttle, good continental breakfast, a clean room. As other reviewers noted, a tired hotel, and my non-smoking room smelled like a smoking room in a not-too-distant past.

The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was comfortable.

This hotel was horriable. First room they gave us the tv didnt work, next room smelled like cheech and chong where in there the past month. Also tv in this room was blurry. No working ice machine, coffe in lobby was burnt. Def not a hotel you would expect that close to the airport!!

The best part was the front desk staff. Friendly and helpful. Ready shuttle at all times was great.

Horrible horrible. Horrible. Please stay away from this horrible place not one nice thing to say about this place.

The staff was awesome the room very clean very close to airport with a quick and easy shuttle . Left car there as well while on my trip . Only downside was a group of nosey kids running around but it wasn't the hotels fault

This hotel was a good choice for the price. Room was clean and staff were pleasant to deal with.

This hotel was fine for a one night work trip. It was good enough and the price was very affordable. Will stay again the next time I have to go for work.

Checked in first room curtains were broken heater/ac unit broken switched rooms second room door seemed off blanket had burn holes in it room stunk like illegal marijuana had to air it out spray air freshener but nice and quiet location TV was great fridge was perfect amenities were plentiful.

I was skeptical after the reviews, but they all turned out to be completely wrong. The staff was more than helpful, there was a shuttle too and from the airport that was more than convenient, room was extremely clean, and was much nicer than I expected. Also parking was free and breakfast was acceptable. I am a 21 year old traveling by myself for interviews and was looking for a cheap hotel to do homework and sleep in, I was happily pleased with it.
