Hotel is dated, but clean. Proximity to Widener U. made it a top choice of hotel. Breakfast is adequate, staff is friendly. Plenty of parking, especially since there is limited parking on college campus.

Hotel was clean and appealing. 7/11 less than a block away, very convenient. Rooms clean and comfortable. Could use some decor in hallways, seemed almost like a dormitory. But would definitely come back. Shuttle driver Moe was the best. Very pleasant and helpful.

Staff at check in was very friendly. Free hotel shuttle is a plus. Mo the driver is a great person and loves what he does. Lobby area was very clean. Room had tons of hair in the bed. It looked like someone combed their hair in the bed.

The towels, tub and jacuzzi were all filthy! Tried to call for new ones and the phone kept ringing. Only a few of the channels on the TV were actually working and the ones that were, we're fuzzy. This property has sentimental value for my husband and I, but the property has gone down over the years.

This was an adequate hotel. It was reasonably priced and we didn't expect much for the location. It was hard to find as it was nestled between buildings that looked vacated. There was a very uneventful breakfast that had been pretty picked over with no one around to replenish it.

I usually don't stay at mid quality hotels. I was mostly happy with my stay here. The TV stations available were not great--the sports stations were limited (during bowl season). The room was clean. the bed comfy, and the staff was friendly and helpful. For the last minute plans I made, I was satisfied.

The property was clean and the staff was friendly. Location was convenient to the airport and Harrah's Casino. There is a little alley to walk through which was slightly uncomfortable at night, but nothing that would cause me to not stay here again.
