Stayed here whilst travelling on a budget and thought it was absolutely fine for the price paid. Good central location - bit confused as to where the parking was initially due to road-works going on, but was directed there by hotel staff Staff were very friendly upon check-in and whenever I dealt with them (when I could find them!) My...

We booked this hotel for one night for a place to grab some sleep after a flight that landed at 1AM. Checkin was uneventful, and we were able to get to our room quickly. The room was very small as was the bed. It was definitely not a room of luxury, but it had a bed, a TV, a coffee...

I booked this hotel about 5 weeks in advance after many hours of reading reviews and checking prices for Philadelphia. Upon check-in, we were put in a different type of room than I booked. This room (301) was a double queen when we had booked a one bedroom suite. When I came to speak with Ryan, the person on staff,...

This was a very different experience for my husband and myself. We drove around in a circle for about 30min,mind you we no nothing about center city and neither did our GPS. Once we finally figured out where we needed to be with a little help from some very kind young ladies who probably were tired of seeing us go...

Pictures tell the story. Was a special offer for 150 dollars. Totally unacceptable state of the hotel: tapestry falling from the wall, desperate state of the bathrooms, broken thermoregulator, rooms horrible, no attempt was made to generate any comfort!

Thanks for your review. Good or bad we try to learn from each comment. My suggestion is to make better decisions when booking a room in the future. When you book at a budget hotel becuase it fits your means but desire amentities of a larger hotel you are certainly going to be disapointted. Our guest appreciate a value and...

I stayed at this hotel for 4 days while attending a conference at the convention center in Philadelphia. The rooms were clean, the location was very convenient and the neighborhood was a lot of fun. By far, the best part of our stay at the Rodeway Inn was Richard at the front desk. He always greeted us with a smile...

All hotels have rooms, all hotels have guests, and all hotels have front desk agents, but what makes people come back to certain hotels is the experience they had while here. A great front desk agent allows a guest to make a trip an experience. Our goal is to ensure that experience is great. Thank you for staying with us,...

I live in Philadelphia and stayed three nights while my belongings were being moved to a new residence. It's a charming hotel with friendly staff. Reminds me of hotels in Europe. If you want to be able to control the temperature in your room, ask for one of the four rooms on the first floor. If you stay in one...

Stayed at this hotel for two days attending a conference in Philadelphia. The service offered by staffs was terrible. The first day I arrived I discovered there was a special way to flush the toilets. I went to bed at about 12:30 AM after spending the rest of the day preparing for my presentation the next morning.
