The Conwell Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel staff are amazing, very helpful.

I came from Miami for a 2-day conference. My conference was just steps from the Inn making everything convenient. My room & bathroom was clean and the staff was nice. Despite the Inn being on campus, there were no disturbing noises. The two concerns I have, 1) they charge daily for parking and you cannot pay for 1 night while your hotel stay is 3 you have to pay for your entire stay. 2) fridges should be provided in the rooms. In the basement I saw 5 fridges not in use. I don't understand the purpose for charging to have a fridge in the room. This method puts people in a bind. I would not recommend this place for more than a 3-night stay. I stayed for 4 nights.

Very clean and friendly staff, they were very welcoming to us and it was our first time in Philly.

Non stop constriction right outside front and side windows. Windows are lousy and provide no sound barrier, do not close all the way. Positive is very convenient location on Temple campus bit noise is unbearable, especially for $400 per night...wifi is lousy.

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.

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.

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)

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.

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).

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!
