Antwone was the front desk clerk and he was more than hospitable. After a long day of having my travel plans interrupted by the Pope's visit and the lack of communication with US Airways, Antwone patiently answered the phone and provided any comforts needed at the hotel. Being offered bagels at midnight and getting a call asking if I wanted a wake up call was better than being at Grandma's house.
Shuttle service took a long time
The location is convenient Staff was friendly Breakfast was decent
Bathroom of my room had dust everywhere. I had no towels to dry off from shower, only a face towel. Didn't realize until I was in shower and it was too late to call desk. There was a mop propping up the soap dish in the shower. When ever someone used the stairwell, which was actually down the hall, the floor shook and it was loud. Demonstrates that the structure was poorly built, my guess is a lot of wood and not enough concrete/masonry.
The staff and shuttle drivers were friendly and helpful. The airport shuttle was very convenient and there was a Seven Eleven market right next door. It was also very quiet! Well equiped room with microwave and fridge.
The room was dated and so didn't appear as clean as I would have liked.
Clean the bathroom and carpeting and wash the sheets.
OK for quick stay. Bad neighborhood No where to go within walking distance
Cheap towels Crappy breakfast
The woman at the front desk when I checked in was PHENOMENAL! Smart, proffesional, accomodating, efficient. I liked tre business center so I could print my boarding passes. The room smelled a little musty, nothing the ac didnt fix. Beds were very comfortable and I slept great 24 hour airport shuttle, the driver was prompt and professional
The neighborhood is a bit questionable, but since there is a Police subsation we trusted it was okay to park the car overnight.
The staff here is amazing. I've stayed here several times and they know me by name. Everyone is very friendly and they make me feel like a friend more than just a guest. The beds for me are very comfortable. I assume it would depend on what you prefer. I like that there is a grocery store right down the street, a seven eleven attached to the property and it's a short drive into the city. Rooms are equipped with a microwave and frig, breakfast has a nice assortment for a free hotel breakfast. Parking is free.
I don't dislike anything per say, I just wish there was a pool on the property.
breakfast, polite staff, close to our intended destination
charges were wrong - we paid more than you advertised and want our card credited accordingly.
poor signage leading to the hotel; inattentive clerk at checkout
Responsiveness of the stuff, overall impression of a new and clean facility
breakfast can be improved
Close and quite cheap. The treatment was good.
It was near to our destination, swarthmore college.
The bathroom was clean and the little sewing kit provided was handy.I also like the fact the hotel was very close to the airport and the shuttle service was convenient
The ice machine was located on another floor, which was kind of annoying as I was in my night clothes and did not feel like using the elevator.
Hotel was very clean, and the front desk was extremely helpful. Close proximity to Harrah's Casino. New building with plenty of onsite free parking.
We got what we expected; a clean room and bath. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I was there with my daughter who was scheduled to move into her dorm at Swarthmore College, and it was very convenient to spend the night here after the long drive and then be at the college in the morning.
It's a tiny thing, but there was no shampoo or conditioner. When I asked, they brought it right up.
