Cosy and well located hotel, within walking distance of the bus/train terminals, main attractions and a wide range of eating options. Front desk was welcoming and helpful. Room was clean and neat, bed and pillows were comfortable. Only drawbacks were thin walls and narrow corridors, but these were minor inconveniences. Overall good value!

This was our first visit to Philly and at the Rodeway Inn. A room was available as soon as we arrived around noon (before check in). Brian was very accommodating as we realized we booked a room with an exterior bathroom. He quickly searched for any available rooms with a bathroom and changed our reservations on the spot. Brian was...

Thanks for the review! i am so happy when someone visits the hotel and I see a review like this because I feel like I was able to enhance your trip. The Eastern State is certainly one of my favorites and glad you got to eat a good meal at Little Pete's, a Philly staple. If you visit again call...

Avoid this place! Had reservation through Hotels.com @ $150 for the night which they confirmed. Several days after made the reservation, got cryptic email from the hotel, saying their "system was hacked", and that the reservation wasn't valid and would need to be re-booked. Was instructed to contact hotel directly. When i did so, they told me the rate now...

Thank you for the review. I know we are a budget hotel but when you booked at 70% off, which was a mistake by your booking company, we are not sure why you think the reservation would stand. Most people who reserved while the booking company was having an issue got reimbursement from the booking company for the difference. From...

Great location! Very accommodating, too. I upgraded my room and extended my stay by a night. All went smoothly. You can walk to Broad street, City Hall, and even Independence Hall from here. Great Irish pub called Moriarty's right down the street, too.

When I arrived and was greeted by such a friendly person at the front desk and after seeing my lovely room, I was certain I would give this hotel 5 stars, at least. After all, there was everything imaginable including an in-room safe, microwave, refrigerator, Keurig coffee, wifi and even a newspaper delivered in the morning. Although it's a 19th...

I had wanted to try this property because of its stellar location in Center City Philadelphia. It had a reasonable weekend rate- $175 a night. This turned out to not be a good value at all.

This was my second time staying at the Rodeway Inn and I must say it's been a very pleasant experience every time. MARK at front desk has always been extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful! I'm from out of town so it made my stay all the more pleasant. Great location and spacious/comfortable rooms!
