Best Philadelphia motels

When can I find the best deals on motels in Philadelphia?

Philadelphia is one of the most fascinating cities in America, packed with monumental history sights and topped off with a buzzing blend of craft beer bars and cutting-edge gastronomy. You might think that means it would be hard to find any sort of bargain motel deals, but there are certain times of the year when things get easier on the wallet. Check out stays during the late winter months of January and February, or consider coming in fall, for September and October. Summer and the Christmas vacation period is usually to be avoided, when room rates spike along with traveler numbers.

Other convenient spots are on I-95, just a whisker away from the check-in desks of Philadelphia International Airport.
