I stayed here because most of the usual hotels I stay at were booked or outrageously priced because of the NFL Draft that was being hosted in Philadelphia. The location is not so hot. The hotel itself is dated. The bathrooms are tiny. The rooms are decent sized. The staff is friendly. I can't think of a real good reason...

We are frequent Holiday Inn/IHG guests, and we will not stay at this location again. It is in what feels like a very sketchy part of town right next door to a seedy looking dump of a motel. That said, this property does have a few pluses. PROS: -Very friendly staff. Housekeeping greeted us in the hallway and asked if...

Our flight was canceled and we ended up here. Needless to say I was in a bad mood. Well, Kyle, the man at the desk, was great. He set us up in an excellent room. Then, he arranged a shuttle to a local restaurant, which my wife and I fully enjoyed The next morning I went to the outstanding breakfast...

Made a quick stop at the hotel on business. Front desk staff was efficient and friendly and helped me get some food delivered at a late hour. Room was comfortable and convenient to the airport. For the price, would stay here again. It didn't appear to be in the best part of town, but I had no issues.

This hotel provides a basic room and breakfast, what's predictable in this price category. What makes this hotel stand out is the front-desk staff--Rebecca in particular--and its riverside location with great views and a little park nearby. Rebecca greeted us warmly when we checked in. I told her I had read reviews wifi was spotty and she assured me it...

I chose this hotel because it was reasonably priced, had an airport shuttle and I am an IHG Rewards member. Needed a last minute room before heading down to Wash DC the next day. Efficient checkin, quiet clean room and great breakfast in the morning. Met expectations, and would stay again, just maybe not in January and bad weather!

In short, a scary dump. Deserves zero stars, but the front desk staff were polite. Owner should be ashamed of himself. Dark parking lot will certainly scare the fairer sex. Didn't even want to take off my shoes in the room. Nasty carpet... Stay away! Just horrendous.

People very accommodating. However, did have some problems with internet access on my phone. Otherwise, very pleasant experience at the hotel. The staff at this hotel is friendly and helpful. We had a late flight out (6pm) but they allowed us to hang in the lobby for a few hours after our late checkout.
