We like to patronize Chester local businesses so were happy to try this hotel across from the lovely campus of Widener University. Overall, we'd stay here again based on the convenient location, sunny breakfast room and warm, welcoming staff. Our room (handicapped) was OK. I agree the pillows and mattresses are not up to the standard of a BW Plus....

Pillows were like sacks of flour. Internet wasn't working every time I tried to use it which made tracking an arriving flight difficult. Breakfast was good. Room door had difficulty opening due to rubbing against the carpet.

We booked this hotel for a park and fly stay. The rate including 5 days of parking was very reasonable. You are a short drive away from many restaurants, and the service at this hotel was very good. Not much to do at the hotel itself, but the staff more than made up for that shortcoming. Very helpful staff, especially...

For the value and location best hotel to stay at. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Would not consider staying anywhere else when in Chester. Kudos to the staff at breakfast and the night shift front desk!

This hotel is located at Widener University, which has a beautiful campus. Despite also being a five-to-ten minute drive to a seemingly ghetto area, a mental correction institute, and Harrah's Casino and Racetrack, the area where the hotel is located felt safe. I booked a King Room, which was pleasant. My bathroom had handicap accommodations; it was very spacious. The...
