The hotel looks a little run down from the outside. The rooms are a nice size and clean. They could use some remodeling. There use to be a restaurant/outside bar attached. It's still there, but it's not open and it is need of some rehab. The hotel is located along the Delaware River just south of the PHL airport, so...

Don't get deceived by the outside appearance. It does looked scary outside but once you get inside your room, you'd be surprised by what you'll see. Thumbs up for Ash, the night receptionist who was very attentive and helpful. I asked where can we eat and he recommended Romano's Stromboli just a short walking distance away. He also gave us...

It was really good, amazing service and the meals are delicious. The only thing that's not perfect is the smile, there is always a room for a bigger smile! The space was really good as well. Very clean. Everything you want except for again the smile!

I was traveling alone since my companion had to cancel at the last minute. When I arrived at the hotel I was NOT going to stay due to my first impression. The outside looked sketchy and possibly dangerous to me due to the dark entrance and almost alley like placement...HOWEVER, once I got my key and went into my room...

This is a very serviceable airport hotel. The rooms are large and clean. There is generous parking, excellent wifi, and restaurants within walking distance. It shares a shuttle with the Holiday Inn Express next door. However, the price of the Airport Waterfront is at least $50 less than anything else in the neighborhood. We will definitely stay here again.

We had a 12 hour layover in Philadelphia, so instead of spending the time at the airport, we decided to take a day room where we could take a nap and a shower, and also have some time to explore. This hotel supported that need. However, the hotel is in disrepair, there were bags of trash left in the hallway...

The staff are very kind and welcoming. The rooms are made to house a king! I enjoyed the free continental breakfast that the hotel has to offer and am very much appreciative for the services they offer. Very generous pricing!

We love the water so we were willing to give the Airport Waterfront Inn a try. The hotel is reminiscent of a New Orleans hotel with the wrought iron railings and the price was very reasonable given the prices of other hotels in the area. There is a Holiday Inn Express next door with with which this hotel shares an...

Kind and welcoming staff, clean, quiet room with an awesome view of the Delaware River. At these prices, youll feel like you're taking advantage! I spend a lot of time in hotels, so it's always nice to drop into a place where the staff actually cares...and it shows. Thanks for your hospitality. Keep up the great work.
