Overall the stay was nice. There is no office to check-in with, its through your phone which I did not expect. Overall the room was good but small. The shower smelled a bit like bleach which indicates it was cleaned but also I would have preferred not for the strong smell. One of the smaller towels smelled a bit funky but the others were fine. Overall this was a good stay for a quick trip to Philadelphia.

The property is very comfortable and has everything you need. It’s 15 minutes from the airport located in a safe area in town. You can walk around to buy food, hang at the park and shop. We did self checkin. The property was VERY CLEAN. Internet , washer and dryer. It was very quiet, peaceful and relaxing. The staff was also very quick with assisting with booking and answering any questions. I would definitely recommend this property and stay again.
