We booked a kingsize bed and non-smoking room. The bed was full size and wreaked of smoke. We ran into an employee, carrying a can of deodorizer, as we headed to our room. It was a clear he had just sprayed our room. The headboard was cloth covered and absorbed the strong smell of smoke. The smell so overpowering I... More

First of all, ABVI in Media, PA is undergoing renovations. Second, I was traveling alone and was only looking for a cheap, clean motel for one night. ABVI in Media, PA is never going to be confused with a 4-Star hotel. But what it is is a cheap, CLEAN motel with friendly, attentive staff. And in this day and age... More

I was in Philly and needed a place to work for a few hours. The manager at this hotel set me up with a beautiful room and could not have been more accommodating. The room was very nice and the staff was very friendly and very easy to work with. Nice people, nice hotel.

While there to visit family in Drexel Hill, my father-in-law was put in hospice, and they extended our stay at the hotwire price. Very thoughtful. It's not fancy at all, but as our daughter said, "This place has just what we need."

Sheets had not been changed. Hairs on bed, sheets and pillows. Tattered pillow case and top sheet. We were the only registrants but given a 3rd floor room and no escalator. Looked like it was under construction. Incredibly shabby and dusty. Surly manager. Left immediately. No refund offered. Better to sleep in your car.
