Penn Relays 2014

Posted Oct 5, 2014
Pros: Affordable.
Attending the Penn Relays in Philly. Downside there is alot of traffic outside the hotel during peak hours. Makes it difficult to enter/exit the property. Also every trip to Philly is a toll over the bridge (Oops). A decent place to rest your head and take a shower. Close to a few stores, restaurants, and liquor store.

Great value!

Cons: Automatic doors on the stairwell so it's easier to carry up the luggage.
We wanted to wander around Philadelphia for the day, but didn't want to stay the night in an over-priced hotel. This Howard Johnson suited our needs perfectly. It's well-priced, and reasonably comfortable. We were on the second floor and there's no elevator, so it was a pain to bring the luggage up, but it wasn't the end of the world. The staff were courteous and helpful when needed.

Decent, budget friendly hotel

Posted Aug 21, 2014
Budget friendly, no frills hotel. Pro's; conveniently located off highway, free parking, wifi & basic continental breakfast. Spacious rooms, clean bathrooms & linens. Con's; rugs in halls and rooms in need of deep cleaning, mattresses not the most comfortable, breakfast only 6am-9am (ends too early). Thin walls- you can hear conversations, footsteps in neighboring rooms and hallway & doors opening & closing.

Very nice except....

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Clean and comfortable, great staff, great location - 15 minutes from Philadelphia.
Location: 15 minutes from Philly, which was perfect for us. There IS a $5 toll (one-way) going into Philly.
The hotel and the room itself were clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly, helpful, polite, and respectful. The hotel was undergoing renovations but that was not a problem. When we arrived I asked if there would be noise (they start renovations at 8AM). I was told that the renovations were taking place on the side of the hotel where the smoking rooms are located and that we (being in a non-smoking room) wouldn't be bothered by any noise. That was true but I would caution anyone staying there to either book a room on the non-smoking side or ask re the current status of the renovations. (we were there the second week of August, 2014.). The big problem was the noise from other guests. I have a feeling the walls must be very thin. I did call the front desk at 1AM and again 2AM and asked them to have the people in the next room keep it down. The woman who answered was very nice but apparently she wasn't able to quiet them.

Excellent for the price!

The hotel is older, but is clean and maintained. The desk clerks were extremely helpful, professional, and friendly. The hotel was right off the interstate and the area seemed pretty safe. For the price- this place was great. We would stay here again!
