Use to staying at Hampton, Marriott, or Holiday Inn but this hotel is great. Cozy clean and new beds, flat screen tv with loads of channels, view of river, Laundry available, shopping and dining. 7 miles to PES and near airport. Most important to me is the cleanliness. Great staff! I'll always stay here!

Was a bit of a challenge to find this hotel and it seemed to be a bit out of the way. None the less, the location is quite safe and secure. The river location and the iron balconies gave their charm. The rooms are in very good shape and clean. We were surprised at how nice it was. A good...

I ended making a reservation at almost midnight when I was stuck in the Philadelphia airport until the next day with my luggage and didn't want to sleep in the ticket area. The shuttle picked me up pretty quickly and the staff was friendly and efficient. The room is a little worn and the lack of carpet surprised me, but...

I was greeted at the front desk pleasantly and the checkin process was very smooth and quick. The breakfast options are huge but enough for a grab and go. Cereal, pancakes and some type of muffin/danish was provided amongst a few other things. The outside of the hotel looks a little sketchy and rundown but the inside of the room...

Honestly, i had a pleasant experience. It doesn't look as impeccable as other hotel chains. But with some attention to minor details and cosmetic touch ups, it could look just as nice. The room was clean; the sheets and the bathroom, the most important parts to me, were very clean. The staff members were really nice, and the service was...

Found the property on a third party website, and was a little apprehensive at first. The front desk attendants were nice and the rooms were very clean. They also had quality Wifi. I would probably stay again.

So let me start by saying no bed bugs and not an insect to be seen. For most budget hotels, that's a huge deal. The price was excellent and location was perfect. A few hotels closer by a few hundred feet but significantly more money. The staff was not your typical corporate hotel type, but for all their imperfections, they...

My wife and I stayed here for two nights because we were in town for a football game and were on a budget. I booked through priceline.com and for 2 nights it was less than $200. You would pay this much for one night at other hotels. Our room looked just like the pictures posted. We stayed in room 257...

I came to town to visit my daughter, and was looking for something that was interesting for a place to stay. My room, on the 3rd floor with the water view, was just what I wanted. It was clean with two queen beds, a great shower, and smelled like nothing but a room. The hotel has quick and easy access...

We chose this hotel as a stopover from NY JFK to Norfolk Virginia. It was a nice, clean hotel, with lovely views over the river. The room was large, with good sized bathroom. Tea&coffee making facilities. Good value for money. cannot comment on the breakfast as we missed it! But I know it was available. If you enjoy plane spotting,...
