A true gem in the city. Far exceeded my expectations in terms of cleanliness and friendliness. We were visiting the campus for Experience Temple day and decided to stay here as opposed to our usual stay at the Marriott. We were greeted with the delicious homemade cookies, and checked in with Gillian. She was very knowledgeable about the university and...

Location location location! That alone gave it 4 stars. We spent 3 days at the Liacouras Center which was about 2 blocks, that you don't even notice, from the Inn. The Inn is well maintained and very clean. Good bed, drapes and plumbing. Excellent staff!!! Don't fret on the mini breakfast offerings. The food trucks and places in a tiny...

The room was small and quite noisy and the clean service was not good and one day the room had not been cleaned at all without any reasons. Hopefully the staff agreed to reimburse a part of the price for this inconvenience.

Our son is a patient at Shriner's Childrens Hospital which is a short distance from Temple University and this was our third opportunity to stay at the Conwell Inn.

I stayed at the Conwell Inn several months ago and was so pleased with the professionalism of the staff. Most of the employees were students and were so eager to help me with getting around city center. The hotel is so quaint and located right on the campus of the university so it is always bustling with people, which I...

All the charm, sophistication, and service of a $400/night hotel without the price, stuffiness, and obnoxious upscale-hotel decor/clientele. I was a little cautious about staying here, gotta admit. Yes, it's located on Temple's campus, No, that doesn't mean you're in "a bad neighborhood" or in will be in any way unsafe at this hotel. I walked to the nearby 7-11...
