Stayed there with my now husband for our wedding. It was wonderful! We had a nice large room for my bridesmaids to get dressed. We also booked a room next door for our groomsmen. The staff was very accommodating for our request. Rooms and bathroom were very clean. One downside. We stayed on the highway side of the hotel. It's...

This hotel badly needs updating, esp. the windows as they seem to be from the time when William Penn was still around! The first night we had a room on the city side, facing I-95. The constant noise of the traffic made it impossible to find sleep. We switched to a room on the other side which was better, but...

A very good hotel and does not disappoint for the price. Good points: The shuttle bus drivers, excellent to talk to and give you some great tips and info. about their city, so they were polite and friendly. Breakfast was also very good. Bad points, none really.

This is a very solid example of the Holiday Inn Express offering. Everything was clean and comfortable and we had a nice room. The only downside is the noise... I-95 is about 100' from the back of the hotel, and our room on the 7th floor was at the same level as the (elevated) highway so it was a bit...

Fairly nice hotel. The rooms are older but clean. Breakfast is good. Staff are friendly. Be sure to ask for a room on the water side as the interstate is noisy. There is free water available at the front desk. Wifi is good. Great location for walking to tour the old town.

Stayed one night in a double queen room for a wedding. Found the beds and linens to be comfortable and the room and bathroom clean. Place is nice and in good shape but not upscale. Typical HI Xpress. Breakfast was complimentary and very good. Eggs, bacon, sausage, cereals, rolls, etc. Cinnamon buns are very good. Only negatives: $30 per day...

The rooms was clean and tidy, the staff very friendly. We we're there in December and it was icy cold. The hotel offered us warm drinks on arrival which I thought was a nice gesture. The room had a great view see attached photo. They also had a free shuttle service in a 10 mile radius.

Thank you for this great review, we are very happy you enjoyed your stay and was able to stay out of the icey cold weather. Also, we do have a complimentary shuttle but it only goes within a 2 mile radius not 10 which is a big leap but thank you for the kind words. Have a great day and...

My son and I greatly enjoyed our stay. There were many interesting local shops, eateries and small art galleries within walking distance and neither of us felt unsafe when walking around at night. Being close to the historic landmarks we wanted to visit during the day was a plus. The morning breakfasts were great and the rooms were always clean...
