    Return guest - not disappointed

    In general: Rooms have been updated - beds are excellent. Coffee pot, refrigerator, microwave, blow dryer, desk, shampoo/conditioner/shower gel in each room. Location and surroundings: Hotel is located within walking distance to several restaurants - tried them all with no complaints! Next door to a park with benches overlooking the water. Next door to that is a Country Club that had a great band outside! The hotel shuttle will take you places also - awesome feature! Dining: Breakfast is carbs (muffins/bagels/pancakes/cereal) juice, milk, coffee. Sports and leisure: Overlooking the water with outdoor seating waterfront. Room: Beautiful view of the water. Useful tips: Tons of free parking.

    Clean room with a friendly staff located on the waterway near Philadelphia.

    No longer offer a continental breakfast, but still have it listed on their website.

    Good value for money..... nothing special, but more than adequate for a night. My room was clean and comfortable with reliable internet, flat screen television. Only $59.... Good price for Philly area.

    When I arrived late, around 12:30 at night, there was a loud club in the building, lots of people partying. However, when I went in my room in shut the door, the noise was minimal...... didn't bother me a bit, but some folks might be more sensative to these types of things than me.

    It is close, five minutes of simple road, but not on top of the Philadelphia International Airport. Great place at a reasonable rate to spend a night before catching a departing flight.

    The room were all remodeled and did not yet have their own refrigerator.

    Friendly staff. Good breakfast at HI Express.

    Air port shuttle failed completely on arrival.

    Very beautiful location. Right outside our door, the dock started, and it was nice to have that beach-like smell and sound when I woke up in the morning and opened the door. For $55, you really can't do any better than this when on a budget (or not). Definitely will stay here again whenever in the area.

    The front desk lady couldn't get me an extra pillow when I had called at approximately 12:30 am after coming back from a concert. We only had three in our hotel and my girlfriend and I like to have two each (four total). The lady at the front desk said that they are locked up when the housekeepers leave, and she doesn't have the keep to their "room", only the manager and housekeepers do. And, don't be scared away by other reviews claiming that the club is too loud. We couldn't hear anything inside our room when the door was shut. Only when we were outside we would hear the music.

    I loved the location. It was right in the water with a view of the Marina. People were incredibly friendly. It was right next Dior to a restaurant right on the water. The staff was friendly and eager to do a good job. The rate was incredible. What a find!

    Nice views of river. Near airport and interstate travel.

    Housekeeping did not clean our room or take trash, etc during our stay. We were short a wash cloth, hand towel, and bath mat on first night. We mentioned it on our way out the next day and found a very large plastic bag on towels outside our door when we returned. The night club next door wasn't too bad thursday night, but was quite loud Friday night.

    Location and price

    No ice machine, had to wait 1/2 hour for ice. My room was never cleaned or clean towels provided even though I stayed 2 nights.

    Superb

    Very good for the money. I did not expect such a comfort for what I spent. If I anytime would need a hotel in the near of philadelphia I would probably stay again there.

    No breakfast. It's a little bit difficult to find the hotel when it's dark...

    Exceptional

    We stayed as the location was near the airport, offered shuttle service, and the rates were great. Rooms have been recently updated and were very clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly, There is a night club next door that offers both inside and outside dining and a large park adjacent to that. We would stay here again.

    The only negative is that it was confusing to find. No sign with the hotel name that we could see...only large street numbers high up on the building. We had read that it was a bit difficult to find so expected this. The hotel is set back next to the river at the far end of a very large parking lot next to the Holiday Inn Express.

    The hotel is very very good. Clean, convenient, staff is very nice.

    The only one thing I would mention is location but it's not entire hotel issue. It's not a big deal of course but if you want to be close to Philla downtown it's not good choice. Otherwise is great for so nice price.
