Staff was friendly for the most part. Place definitely needs some renovation a but can't beat the price price.

Poor1.0 / 5
We arrived at the Penrose at 6:30 PM. The building was dark, the power was out. It had been out since at least early afternoon. We were not notified prior to our arrival that there may be a problem. Could not check in but we were told the power would be on soon. We had tickets to a concert at 8:00. Returned after 11:00 PM. Checked in. The room was freezing, the heat was not turned on. It took over an hour for the room to become livable. We were not offered a discount or any consideration for the inconvenience. I will not be recommending this place or returning.

Poor1.0 / 5
Power went off for both days of my stay. Woke up 1st day to ice cold room, no emergency lights, no water. Room & hallway pitch black. Desk did not answer call from my cell phone. No one came with lights to help us down dark stairway. Ask for full refund since my card has been charged for both nights. Did not stay 2nd night power was still off. Have not received refund either night.

Broken, unprofessional, old
This was honestly the worst hotel experience. The area is not near Center City so taking Uber gets really pricey. The room itself has non-working electrical outlets all around the room. The next morning there was a power outage and we weren't even able to shower or brush our teeth the next day because the water was also cut. We even had a nonworking toilet. The telephone in the room was also not working. We had to walk 11 flights of stairs down with a cellphone flashlight in the absolute dark with all of our luggage. There is hardly anyone that works at the service desk and they weren't there to attend to our calls or requests. The parking isn't free for whatever reason. I highly DO not recommend the hotel because you can pay about $20 more for a 4-star hotel closer to center city that is actually from a well known chain. This was an overall negative review, but honestly, the only hotel review I've ever written due to the lack of quality.
