You know if you're from Philadelphia then you know the rep of of this area of Delaware County. I thought it would be dirty and nasty... But it was actually nice and clean. Plus that view was amazing. It helped with the self reflection I was going thru. Oh and the manager guy at the front desk was extremely nice...

Airlines put us up at this hotel and we arrived late at night and it's behind an abandoned building (with posted signs on doors "No Trespassing") with poor signage and inadequate lighting. Yes, it's on the waterfront, but it's run down. I have no idea how much this hotel cost but I would stay at the nicer, newer, cleaner Holiday...

I really enjoyed my stay here. When I was doing my hotel search the reviews did not excite me. But I decided to take a chance. The staff is so nice and helpful. My room was more spacious than some of the regular rooms in the so called 4 star hotel. The view was great of the water it was...

Rooms r clean. Good river view. Hotel owner Mr Ashok Patel is fantastic person. His hospitality was excellent, he himself helped me to carry my luggage. Wifi was excellent. Airport shuttle service is an added advantage. It seems to be economic extension of Holiday inn.

This a perfect place to stay. Super friendly and helpful staff. Beds are super comfortable. Breakfast is decent. Free shuttle to airport. Left car there for the week for minimal price. Very clean. We drove from new york to fly from phile. Located next to a holiday inn express but just as nice with better price

It's not out of this world, but the water is warm, the heater works, the tv has cable and overall everything worked fine. Reason I deducted a star was because right before I left, I noticed the room didn't lock! Nothing happened of course and nothing was lost, but still shouldn't have happened. The owners were really nice and let...

I hate to give a negative review but my daughter and I stayed there for 3 days. Every day we would give a list of things like, phone doesn't work, microwave dirty, no toilet paper, something that looked like tobacco and rodent droppings in the drawers, shampoo, conditioner & body wash dispenser empty & each day they would partially resolve...

Use to staying at Hampton, Marriott, or Holiday Inn but this hotel is great. Cozy clean and new beds, flat screen tv with loads of channels, view of river, Laundry available, shopping and dining. 7 miles to PES and near airport. Most important to me is the cleanliness. Great staff! I'll always stay here!

Was a bit of a challenge to find this hotel and it seemed to be a bit out of the way. None the less, the location is quite safe and secure. The river location and the iron balconies gave their charm. The rooms are in very good shape and clean. We were surprised at how nice it was. A good...
