"Hard to tell ... it all depends on what you need"
Normally I'd not stay at this property. It's pretty run down, surrounding area feels unsafe, the rooms are horrible (I said roomS since we stayed there once flying in and again flying out). The rooms are non smoking but after sleeping there for one night I had to wash my clothes twice to get rid of the smell; carpet is filthy. I would NOT give it 1 star if base on the property itself only. But the staff is very helpful and professional. It's right next to airport and their shuttle service is excellent. We got there late (1am) and a week late flew out early (5am) and their shuttle was always there, we almost never had to wait. Would I come back? Probably yes if I need a place to crash for a few hours before/after my flight.

"Huge Mistake!!!"
The only good thing about this hotel was the price, but i guess you get what you pay for. Besides the fact that the hotel was dirty inside and out, we had a major issue that has yet to be taken care of by management. After traveling five hours with two smalls children we arrived at 11:30pm. We had booked two rooms. When my husband went to get into one of them there were people already staying in it!!! We piled into the other room and called fromt desk. They were booked, so half of our family was forced to stay in a room that they clearly weren't planning on renting since the window (motel style) had a huge crack that was duck taped, while unloading our stuff we over heard a janitor telling the people in the room we had to say they had been there for a few days. In the morning the women working at the front desk blamed it on the online reservation procedure and how they assign rooms. Not my problem you can't get a system that prevents double booking. Basically, we were very late and a worker gave room to his friends for a party. In this area, my husband could have been shot for trying to get into that room.

"Cheap overnighter but nothing more"
Upon arrival, there was a woman arguing with the front desk worker about the rate. Moments later the cab driver that dropped the women off entered the scene still trying to collect his fare. Lots of drama occurring. This had me questioning the type of individuals that were staying at this place. The door to my room looked like it might have been kicked in at some point. I questioned if the lock alone was enough to keep unwanted guests from entering. The safely lock mechanism didn't seem much better. There was a visible gap that let light and a cold draft into the room. The room was clean but dated. No Flat screen TV in my room, just an old tube type with ~30 stations. Didn't appear to have HBO either. Could hear people walking above me and each and ever door the maids open the next morning. Only thing within walking distance was an adult fantasy boutique. Cheap place for an overnight sleep but if you are looking for more, it would be well worth it to spend $25 more for a different hotel.

"bugs in the bathroom"
When we first arrived the room smelled strongly of cleaning chemicals. We were offered a replacement room and that room smelled better but had duct tape on the window covering a large crack. We got a fan and stayed in the room. That night I had 3 bugs run out from under my luggage in the bathroom. The clerk gave me bug spray and again offered to change our room. My husband was already asleep, so we stayed. I canceled our second night at this hotel. I chose this hotel based on the previous ratings. I would not recommend this hotel.

"A hotel in need of tender loving maintenance"
The shuttle that brought me to this hotel, located in a mixed industrial/commercial neighborhood, picked me up in a timely fashion. The driver was friendly and very helpful. I arrived late only to find I had a problem with my reservation. After being told there were no rooms available the night manager and myself discussed it, and it turned out there were rooms available, but he needed authorization to release one to me. This turned out to be a bit of an ordeal, but he worked through it and gave me a key to a room. He was very helpful and I appreciated his help. But it was downhill from there. The room had a distinct chemical odor, there was something sticky on the nightstand (coke?wine?), stains on the wall, constant banging from the upstairs room, and the low bathroom ceiling by the shower was literally peeling away in huge chunks. The room had the basic amenities, but I was a little disappointed with the CRT TV and the bad reception. All in all, the shuttle was quick, the manager very helpful, but the place was a dump.

"Our stay was very bad."
I am not a person to complain but I asked for a non-smoking room, however, the room was very smokey because of people smoking in surrounding units.I have respiratory problems and this aggravated them The bed and pillows were uncomfortable. There was a lot of noise in surrounding units. These things combined resulted in myself not getting any sleep and my girlfriend only had one hour of sleep. One positive not is that the staff was very friendly.

I found a lump in my pillow--it was a roll of toilet paper!!! Rug was dirty, bug(s) evident in one room. Overall bad experience.

"You get what you pay for."
The hotel is not in the best of locations but convenient to get to the airport. Shuttle service and staff pretty good. Breakfast center is shared with the neighboring Quality Inn. Breakfast not bad but the juice machines either did not have juice or were not dispensing properly. Had to park the car on the street (which was scary) as there were not enough parking spots on the premises. Found thick strands of hair on one of the towels. Free wireless internet which most high-end hotels charge extra for. Overall, for one night, not a bad deal at the price. But next time will look for another hotel.

"Standard cheap airport hotel"
I was stranded at the Philadelphia Airport for the night and stayed at the Econo Lodge. It is as expected for the price and proximity to the airport, old and somewhat run-down. However, the big plus was 24 hour van service to the airport and a decent continental breakfast. I was much happier staying here for the night than sleeping on a floor at the airport.

"Skip this location"
The staff was discourteous, talking amongst themselves while checking us in. Our "non-smoking" room smelled of stale cigarette smoke. The toilet in the room next kept running every five minutes. The front desk called us to report complaints of our downstairs neighbors of the "heavy steps" of our 6 year old, and were very rude to my spouse. There were folks obviously living in the hotel. There was supposed to be free internet in rooms, but it was only in the lobby. The management said this was a maintenance issue -- but then why would they have it, and not the rooms? All in all, we had a very bad feeling about the place, and ended up leaving for a better hotel, even though they would not refund our money. Way overpriced!

Nice for a one night stay. Boyfriend and I stayed here for the night after a game at PPL Park.

Con: smelled a little of cigarette smoke, A/C was somewhat loud when it came on during the night Easy traveling with the location right on the Industrial Hwy to the game. Close to small businessss: McDonald's, Denny's, gas stations.

"Decent price but improvements need to be made."
I was looking for a hotel in Philadelphia that was near the city but still affordable. This hotel was affordable, and the beds were comfortable, but there were a few issues. Firstly, the air conditioner had a constant water leak onto the carpet that must have been there for days because the room had a disgusting moldy odor that wouldn't go away. I reported it to the front desk attendant and he told me the company had recently replaced the a/c units and the new ones had to be manually drained! I guess someone forgot to drain this one. Also, there was a family next door that had three children who woke us up in the morning while playing in the hallway. After reporting it to the front desk, they continued with no change. We later stayed at a Red Roof Inn on the other side of Philadelphia and enjoyed that greatly.

It looks like a pay by the hour type hotel and it is not close to anything besides the airport. When I first got to my room, it smelled like smoke and I made sure to use all of the locks on the door because it did not look safe. I was just looking for a place to rest my head for a couple of nights because I had some business in Philly but I will not be staying there again.

"Cheap, easy free shuttle to airport"
I booked a non - smoking room, sign on the door was non - smoking - but it was definitely not smoke free. Phone rang one ring multiple times during the night. I know this is not setting the hotel can always control. I assumed someone had a little too much to drink and thought they were cute. Not a great stay - but we wanted inexpensive and a free quick shuttle ride to the Philadelphia airport - and that's what we got.

"Eh, it's a place to sleep."
Our hair dryer didn't work. The description on this website also says we are to have coffee in the room. Ours didn't and when I mentioned it to the front desk she said "we don't have it in our rooms." The floor outside of our bathroom felt like it was going to cave in. If you are really only looking for a place to sleep and not looking for luxury then this place is alright. Also a little annoying that some of this reviews were replied to by the hotel as "Someone wasn't doing their job." Trying to put blame on someone else instead of take responsibility for it.

"Ghastly but affordable and convenient"
It was the cheapest rate in the Philly area that I could find and that was definitely appreciated. HOWEVER, it definitely had both a sleaze and grimy aspect to the whole place that was hard to shake and impossible to ignore. First, the bedroom itself was fine except for the fact that there was only one working light for the place; the two lights for either bed refused to turn on. Second, the bathroom was its own kind of horror story. It seemed to be in the need of a good cleaning. The floor and tub seemed to have disconcerting stains about them...not blood but something rusty and scummy. As is, the place seems fitting for a bottom-of-the-barrel coke binge, suicide, or cheap ho granny action. Not my cup of tea. Third, even though they indicate that they have free wifi the signal is horrible and you'll lose the connection quickly. Forget streaming videos on your laptop, that wifi ain't having that. No sir. Luckily, however, they do have HBO so my girlfriend and I were able to watch Game of Thrones. Yippy! Oh! And where you grab that free breakfast? That room was too small, crowded, had horrible lighting and a constant buzz that made it very undesirable to linger in. I basically grabbed some grub and hightailed it out of there. To sum it up, you get what you pay for. Cheap rate, cheap hotel. Would I stay there again? Maybe, but I would definitely look for something close in price with a bit more care put into the premise.

"Don't Count on the Shuttle or Staff"
While just needing a quick nights rest, when I booked through Expedia I specifically asked about the shuttle as I was turning my rental in the night prior to my flight. They assured me it ran every 1/2 hour. I turned in my car and called for a pick up. 30 minutes later, I called again. 30 Minutes later I called again and the lady said, oh, he's already been and come back. I told her I hadn't moved. When the shuttle driver arrived I asked if he'd been here in the last hour and he told me no....Expedia said they would refund me $25 haven't seen that email...errrr...This hotel is not reliable and they'll lie about it.
