Overall I was really displeased with my trip here. Upon placing my reservation, I thought the man who assisted me was really rude. Over the phone he had cut me off but I still went ahead and placed my reservation because I read good things about this place. I wanted to make sure that the room I was in was...

We apologize for your interpretation of the owner's comments. His comments are all meant to inform the examinees of elements of the test and hopefully, relieve their anxiety. The topics in his comments were based on ten years of feedback from prior medical students who have taken the exam. The house was built in 1865 and does indeed have old...

Great location in very pleasant neighborhood. Owners were very helpful giving directions around the area. The suite was very clean, nice and cozy. The continental breakfast was very good! I would definitely recommend the Cornerstone and will be staying there again next year at the same time.

The house is absolutely stunning- especially the entrance, gorgeous curved staircase and dining room. The location is very good too with the subway, 34th street, just a few blocks away. My husband fell while in Philadelphia (while out sightseeing) and we were extended great kindness, so appreciated when one is far from home. Liz's breakfasts were a delight - during...

Great accommodations, friendly people, great breakfast and good location! Near town center and by college campuses. The historic building was beautiful and updated with a comfortable bathroom. Comfortable bed.

I was there for the usmle exam, got treated like family, made sure I have everything I need for the exam, allowed me to have an early breakfast and to change clothes after the exam even though I already checked out.

We were very pleased with our charming well maintained accommodations. The photos show the actual rooms so we were not disappointed on arrival. My family of three shared a well appointed quiet two bedroom top floor suite with a private bathroom. The beds & pillows were comfortable, in fact, perfect for a good night's sleep after long distance travel. The...

This was our first stay and was wonderful. The house is absolutely charming and well kept. The porch creates a great space to relax. Even with modern amenities, this amazing house has all the charm we could ask for. The Inn Keepers are fantastic. They are friendly and social, but know when to give guests space to explore and relax....

I'm a little late in my review of Cornerstone B&B, but if I find myself in Philadelphia again, I will revisit this beautifully restored home in a very walkable neighborhood. Close to lots of great food, the University and many cultural venues.
