Just...okayPosted Mar 2, 2014
Pros: Close to Center City, Rittenhouse Square, Old City
Cons: Nothing can be done to increase the size of the bathroom, room, hallways and elevator.
Location: Beaucoup food and entertainment options. Very good location.
I guess you get what you might expect for a 2-3 star hotel in the center city area of Philly. The hotel was clean and my room was clean. The water worked and the heat worked as well. It was around 10 degrees outside, so it was important that the heat worked and the windows seemed to keep the wind out. I stayed on the 6th floor, which is as high as the elevator can go. However, are actually 7 floors in the hotel and I am sure glad I didn't get one of those rooms. Check in and checkout was simple enough. No issues at all there. My room was quite small. There is a small (maybe 4'x4') area for the closet space once you walk inside the room. Then, there is a small sofa to the left, a small desk to the right with an overhead lamp, the bed straight ahead and the flat panel TV to the right, just past that small desk. There is a shelving unit under the TV, which houses a keurig coffee maker, mini fridge, mini microwave and safe. There really is not much space in the room at all. The hallways and the elevator are also considerably small. I found that I had to turn sideways to get through the elevators doors while carrying a duffel bag. The hallways are just wide enough that I didn't have to walk sideways. I would have to say that I probably would not stay here again. While the rate was reasonable, the place was clean, the location was great and everything in the room worked, the bathroom really sealed its fate for me. The sink is literally about half

Nice HotelPosted Feb 28, 2014
Location: I went to Independence Hall and Liberty Bell. Also walked around the neighborhood and checked out local bars/restaurants.
This hotel was very clean and the concierge was very nice and welcoming! It is located in a great spot near the liberty bell and Independence Hall. The room was very clean and spacious and it was very pleasing to stay at.

Quaint and close to everything. A great value!Posted Feb 24, 2014
I stayed here twice in about a weeks time because I had early morning appointments in the downtown area. The staff was great, the rooms clean, and the atmosphere was quaint and very comfortable. It does not have all of the amenities of the chain hotels, but I don't need a gym or a swimming pool in Philadelphia.

Excellent location but not nice experiencePosted Feb 16, 2014
When we got to the hotel they were doing repairs in the reception so there were men drilling and the whole reception lobby was full of dust. We checked in but the system was down due to the construction work so they didn't register us in the system. They took us to our room but when we got in, they hadnt cleaned it, so we had to wait to be assigned another one. We were taking a nap when we got walked in! another couple was assigned the same room, they had the same number in their room keys, this whole thing was really unpleasant and it's something that just cannot happen. When the front desk staff found out that this happened, they told us that we'd be given a discount but actually we never did. I'd expect bad service from a cheap hotel but the rate was much higher than others, and it wasnt even with breakfast included, so I really expected a better service. It is well located though.

Nicely decorated, great price for downtown Philly!Posted Feb 15, 2014
Overall good experience. Great price for downtown Philly! The only thing was that the lock on my door was not working properly. Each receptionist that I encountered was very pleasant and opened it for me, however I was told that they would call a maintenance person to fix it. No one showed up during my three day stay. I would definitely stay there again!

AMAZING!Posted Feb 3, 2014
Pros: friendly staff, clean rooms, no loud noises!
Location: convention center, Moriarty's Pub (best wings in Philly)
The overall experience of this hotel was very good. The gentleman at the front desk was very friendly along with everyone else I encountered working there! They cleaned the room daily, and the overall quality of the rooms were amazing! While booking with Expedia, I also got a good deal on the room for the weekend!

Nice hotel, short walk from SEPTA Market EastPosted Jan 31, 2014
After some harrowing weather, I arrived at the Rodeway Inn a day late, feeling pretty dead and probably looking worse. The person on duty at the desk let me go on up since my room was ready even though it wasn't strictly speaking check-in time, showing great compassion. All the staff were friendly, but not too friendly, which is nice when you're exhausted. The hotel was undergoing some work, so briefly the water was shut off, but the rest of the time the shower was hot with good water pressure. They have all the basics that you look for in a room, plus a K cup coffee maker. Local take out places deliver there, and there's lots to see and do close by. There was no way that I could see to control the temperature in the room, so when it would get too hot I would have to open the window for a few minutes and let the cold winter air in. It was a minor irritant. All in all, it was a good stay.

pleasant surprisePosted Jan 16, 2014
Pros: Just about everything
Cons: It was smaller than I imagined, but still nice.
Location: a ton of restaurants, happy hours, shows, entertainment galore...
I was taking a 2 day training class at company on Market St. I was only staying one night and did not want to spend too much. I also didn't want to be at the Bates Motel either. I found this place on Expedia. I looked at the pictures, the price and location and crossed my fingers. I was super surprised when I arrived. The lobby is open and clean with modern décor. The hallway was a little tight. I imagine that the place is older and thus the tight hallways. the room was really nice and updated. The shower was awesome!

OK placePosted Jan 13, 2014
The location is great, the hotel is OK, but the staff was very rude.
