"Horrible Smell and Bad Customer Service!"
The hotel looked like it was being repaired, but we never saw anyone working on it. Ceiling tiles were missing and drywall was coming off the walls. The room smelled HORRIBLY!! The first night we were there the man at the front desk had the worst customer service out of anyone I have EVER come in contact with. I have never once posted a bad review about […] a hotel, but this one was worth spending the time to complain about. Their "hot" breakfast consisted of pancakes. The rest was cereal or pastries. It was edible, but certainly not what I've had from most hotels I've stayed at in the same price range. The location was great for Sesame Place and the pool was nice, but that is the only good qualities about this hotel. Do not let the pictures deceive you!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"pleaseing, but minor adjustments..."
overall, the stay was pleasing. Even thought pleasing, the sleeping arrangments were another story. I put down 5 people and they only gave 2 queen size beds. 2 couples and an extra person... where is the etra person going to sleep. Also, the contiental breakfast could have been a little more. For instance, already made hot food-- ex. waffles, eggs, […] etc... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Higher price than expected for low quality"
The "comforter" (which wasn't all the comfortable to begin with) had a huge hole in it. It was the second thing I noticed about the poor quality of the hotel. The first major issue was the foul odor in the hallways. Almost like cat urine, but no cats were to be found. The ice machine in my hallway had an out of order sign up, yet it clearly wasn't turned […] off because a loud noise could be heard coming from it the whole time. The vending machines are money thieves. I will not be visiting this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Staying at hotel because of house fire."
enjoyedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall, we were satisfied with our stay and found all of the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Our main concern was with two doors not locking...the pool was definitely the hit for us and our two young children and it was nice that they had a smaller kid pool off for our 1 year old to enjoyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for family"
Love everything about this hotel..No other commentsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wife Hated It"
The room was outdated and a little dusty. Also, the room next to us was under some renovation and it reeked passing by it. My wife complained about the hotel throughout our stay. However, when she left her cellphone in the room after checking out, the hotel staff was very friendly and helped us get the phone back. So overall it wasn't a bad stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not 5 star but worth the money"
It was easy to find and on a main road near lots of stores and restaurants and the freeways. the pool was nice all the first floor rooms had sliding glass doors so it was easy to get to the pool, had a little work out room and laundry room. the room itself was just what you expect for the price. It looks like the hallways are being remodeled but it […] didnt bother me. It was 92' outside and nice and cold when we got to our room... so refreshing! overall.....i would stay there again. It had everything we needed and the price wasnt bad Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not for families"
We booked this hotel for a trip to Philadelphia, and even though I called and specifically asked how far they were from city center and was told 15 minutes, it was more like an hour in morning traffic. The hotel was HOT, the common areas are not air conditioned as stated. Our room was boiling until the AC kicked on, and it's on a sensor, so do not […] expect to come back to a cool hotel room after a day of doing whatever you are doing. The pool was nice, but the lifeguard on our first day was more interested in her magazine and her snoozing boyfriend than watching the pool. The baby pool was full of leaves and dead flies. When I asked if it could be scooped out, she said she'd tell maintenance. @@ How about you just clean it yourself? My daughter was playing in the sand of the volleyball court until about 5:30 when the bar opens and volleyball teams swarmed the court. As a hotel guest, don't expect to be able to play, and don't expect to leave your poolside door open to let the breeze in- these drunks are out there until 1-2am SCREAMING and swearing. Our hotel room smelled like fish and pot, not sure what that was about. When my kids were in the bath my husband kept going out into the hall to see who was smoking pot. Come to figure out, it's the water that smells that way. The room was large, the bathroom was clean and updated. The refrigerator was a nice addition. The tv has 20 channels, none family or child oriented. So bring a DVD player or laptop of your own. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Cheep, and SHOULD be"
This place was probably great 30 years ago. It has all the great stuff, but most of it is broken. If you're ok with adequate, but cheap, then you're in. If you want to complain about a lot of stuff, this is your place. If you just need a cheap, safe joint to sleep and watch a pretty snazzy tv with free HBO, (hi point, actually) it's just fine. Free […] internet worked great and the "bussiness" center (yup, spelled wrong) was also adequate. Didn't get in the pool, may not have wanted to?? or the beach volley ball court, but looked cool.

"No good !!!!"
The room was dirty and the staff was no helpfull. The bathroom was old, bad and smell no good. Just the pool and the life guard was perfect. Big problem no elevator !!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Check-in took too long. Room was not ready and housekeeping showed no urgency in readying room. There was graffiti on the tub surround. Table had cracks in frame. TV picture was fuzzy.Genuine Expedia guest review
I will never stay at that hotel again! The outside grounds were unkept, paint chipping, weeds overgrown every where. Loud music all night. The continental breakfast was a joke!! 3 pieces of roack hard french toast warm OJ & Milk. The pool area was dirty, people sitting on tables. Never Again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a good hotel for the money and the locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The hotel was fine. It was good value for money"
I thought the hotel was in good condition. I would have liked the pool & playground open earlier (opened at 10am - which is late for kids). PA seems to still allow smoking in hotels, so the hallways smelled of stale smoke.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Centrally located to both Bensalem and Philly areas. Easy access to highways and main thoroughfares. Quite and clean. Outdated decor, not a fancy hotel, but served my needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a very pleasant experience, I would stay there again. The rooms were clean and all the amenities were excellent. A breakfast was served. Good front desk staff generally, just one young lady, of light complexion and about 26yrs, did not live up to the standard. She was eating chips at the front desk and when asked if she could assist with me […] with finding a taxi she give me a number that was to a Pizza Shop while she continued eating her chips. Secondly, I thought that greater attention could be paid to things such as keeping the main entrance to the hotel clear of leaves and plastic wrappers. Since the enrance is the first point I saw on arrival.Thirdly, when I made this booking it was for a Ramada Hotel in Downtown Philadelphia. We found ourselves in the North East of Philly. I had travelled from Barbados via Miami. There was no time to seek redress othetwise. We made the most of our location. The area was safe and there was good shopping at the Franklin Mills Mall. Good dinning at Chickies and Petes just 5 mins walk with excellent staff superb food. There was a sports facility next door and a bowling alley that were great entertainment.

"Easy Access to all Major Roads"
Hallways were quiet, limited traffic. The room was clean, sheets and blankets clean and not worn. I had stayed at this Ramada in the past, and had a positive experience. There was also a free Continental breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was horrible sheets were semi clean ... Room smelled like bleach ... And very old looking they def need to do major renovation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked this hotel and was welcomded by an an excellent receptionist, After that everything went down hill, the room was clean enough to sleep in just. But worst of all there was technically no breakfast, the muffins on both mornings were moldy. And a lot of the things were just old or stale. I finally had to settle for fruit loops!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ramada Inn on Roosevelt Blvd."
The room I was assigned was clean but very poorly maintained. My first clue was the wobbly toilet, and the loose toilet seat. I used 3 of the electrical outlets at some point during my two night stay, and they all frightened me some. The one next to the bed had no plate, and the plug itself was very loose in the box. The plug in the bathroom was loose […] as well, and moved when you plugged or unplugged anything, and the plug directly on the other side of the wall, the one for the coffee maker actually came out of the wall as I tried to unplug the coffee maker, box and all. VERY unsafe! The shower curtain rod was not attached to the wall right so the curtain would not stay closed (at this point I did not care about the lake on the bathroom floor). As I was leaving, I stopped by the office to express my complaints and both entrances were locked, with no one to be seen. I can say with confidence that I will not be staying there again.

"Ramada never again"
Room smelled really bad, plaster and sheetrock falling off the ceiling in the bathroom. Black mold all around the tub. Just nastyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ramada- near Sesame Place"
This hotel was horrible. The overnight front deskman was rude. I was disrupting his cellphone conversation and was annoyed to direct me to which room was mine. There had been bad water damage to the hotel. The breakfast was only until 10 am and cosisted of cereal and bread. It was the worst contential breakfast I had ever had. The room was mildewed […] and moldy. The bathroom had a huge water/ mold spot in the bathroom. Due to this I could not breathe at night. The TV was a small box of the old fashioned sort. I can't believe that anyone would pay more than $20 a night for this horrible place. We stayed only 1 night and caneled the next nigth. We went to ALoft hotel near the Airport. It was FANTASTIC! Highly recomment. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I really liked the stay at this hotel. I was very comfortable and the hotel was very clean. The only issues I have is that the hotel's exercise equipment needs to be updated. If a hotel advertises that the training room comes as part of the hotel package, than it is expected to be in excellent and working condition. The weight room is unacceptable. […] Concerning the complimentary breakfast, it needs to improve. At least adding cold hardboiled eggs/ waffles or oatmeal packets would be a great offer. Last but not least, when check out time came and we were grabbing the last of our items to take out of the room, the room service did not give us a chance to get our things out. I did not like them coming to knock on the door and then hanging around the hall watching us to make sure we were getting out of the room. Then I saw the manager coming down the hall as if he was checking up on us. This made me feel very uncomfortable. I truly understand that the staff wanted to get the room cleaned out, but we were on our way out the room. Overall, the stay was good and I did become a little frustrated with the television, because they have it where you can't even bring your dvd player from home to hook up on the television to watch your own movies. In addition, I had trouble with the remote, but it was because you have to have the tv turned directly where the remote is pointing right at the little square box on the television, because there is a red signal light that connects to the remote in order to turn the television. F.Y.I. for you to know when you go to turn the television in order for you not to become frustrated. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bad service and smelly heater"
The heater in the room had a noxious odor which made me sick. The front desk was no help at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were relatively suprised and happy with our experience at the hotel. The pool was quite chilly but we enjoyed watching the nightly volleyball matches. And the bar is available if you are interested in a drink walking distance from your room. We were in Room 108 which was close enough to the night time activities without being disturbed if we decided […] to turn in early. The breakfast was good and we even took an apple or yogurt to snack on later. It was close to Historic Philly and there is even public transportation right in front of the hotel.My teenage daughter enjoyed working out in the fitness room which was usually empty.The cleaning staff was extremly happy and polite. We were happy because for the price we were expecting much less. It was a steal and we will certainly return there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"You get what you pay for!"
The hotel was Ok at best. Although clean, the room was old with older type fixtures including the TV and air conditioner. TV reception was poor and the channel selection was limited. The grounds were generally dirty. Staff was helpful one night, but less so the second. Even though I am working in the area, I probably won't stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good choice when visiting Sesame place"
About 15 min from Sesame Place. The hotel and our room were very good. The room was bigger than I expected, had a microwave and a frig. Free breakfast was not fancy, but sufficient - bagels, danishes, french toast, pancakes, cereal, fruit. The only negative is that there is no elevator. We were only there for 2 nights, so we didn't have a lot of luggage, […] but if you do and get a room on the 2nd floor (I think there are only 2 floors), that might be a problem.

The handle on the sliding door was broke, it made it hard to open. Some of the lights did not work, including the outlets. The Hotel is good for an over night stay, good price. Kids enjoyed the pool, and the volleyball games.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Looked for an affordable yet nice place to stay In Philly and found it at the Ramada. Loved sitting on the patio at night and watching the people and cars go by.Genuine Expedia guest review
the location was great but the bed and pillows were very uncomfortable. several times we did not get towels in our roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel seems like a front for either homless or runaways. We had a stranger knock on our door 2xs from 2am to 3am totaly unexceptable. We think people live there. Wouldn't stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel was very nice and the people at the Desk were very nice. Room was nice size we had a balcony facing the pool which was really nice. The only thing I might say is it would of been nice if the bartender used a scoop for the ice instead of his hands. I would definately stay there again. Great Location you can walk to restaurants and stores.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not at all for the price"
Not bad at all for the price... Was't extremly top of the line but it was good for the price. It def. wasn't no dump..Genuine Expedia guest review
I spent a night at this hotel on a weekend trip with my sons. The rooms are nothing close to the pictures. The toilet was not properly cleaned and the hallway was very dirty. It was obvious that they had not vacummed in a couple days. The hotel felt more like a cheap motel. The breakfast is very basic, just bagel and cereal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall great hotal but the major concern and must change for better customer service and safty is No smoking! Should not be allowed in any part of the area.coming to into the hallways was real bad of smoke.. workers should walk and check the surroundings! Of hallways!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not impressed anh longer."
Without personally insulting anyone in particular. On my last stay at the hotel, not more than a half hour after checking out and on the road back to NJ, I realized that I left a pair of expensive shoes and two IPods in the safe. And when I called for them immediately (ON MY CELL PHONE) after realizing this while travelling, and I know that they were […] left there, the hotel personnel was very nasty and told me that the items were not there and were not reported to lost & found. I kept telling them that I had just checked out, so that the items had to still to be there, and they kept insisting the items were not there. To make a long story short, my shoes and IPods were taken by someone there, and I am sure you know what I am getting at. The hotel basically did not care about the guest and their lost/stolen items. I know I left my items in that room and I know they were taken by one of the housekeepers. It could not have been taken by a new guest, because in the time I checked out and discovered the items were left behind AND CALLED IMMEDIATELY ON MY CELL PHONE FROM MY CAR, no other guest had checked into that room, because the room had to be cleaned. I wold like to know how that hotel could treat a guest like they did me, and furthermore, kept insisting that I did not leave those items when I KNOW I DID! i am very upset because these items were very expensive items, and no one was honest enough to return them.

The entrance that I was assigned to get to my room was very dirty and the door could not be locked. It felt quite unsafe as anyone could come in at any time. I stayed up all night the first night due a faulty sensor. I was assigned a better room the next day after I complained. The comforter in my second room had to be replaced, at my request, because […] it had 7 holes in it. They looked like cigarette burns. The hallway to get to my room was as hot as the temperature outside. It was not air conditioned and it had a strange smell. This place does NOT qualify to be called a Hotel. This is more like $20 a night motel. The management staff looked like they were at war with everyone. They are the most unwelcoming Hotel management staff that I have ever seen. They have no clue as to what civility and customer satisfaction are.....The only bright spot for this place was the cleaning staff. They did a good job. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

My stay was satisfactory. Breakfast was fairly limited, only apples for fruit and eggs for protein. The fitness room's equipment was very dated... but functional to say the least.

"This was my worst hotel experience ever!"
My family and I chose this hotel for our 3 day 2 night vacation in order to visit Sesame Place. We had a horrible stay there. No one came to clean our room, They promised us a crib for our toddler prior to our arrival and it took them 4 hours to show up to our room with it at almost midnight. The water back up in the bath tub anbd the walls are filthy. […] The balcony of our room had food from the former occupants. The back doors to the hotel are broken so anyone off the streets can walk in.I could go on and on. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. Its a dump! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
