Great view, friendly and helpful staff. On the less positive the continental breakfast lacked the normal yogurt and fruit. If you like carbs and carbs alone it was perfect, but I can't do flour products which was disappointing. The room was ok. I appreciated the complimentary ride from the airport!

My boyfriend and I have come to the area last year and this year for Rock Allegiance. We love to travel and usually have to do it relatively cheap, so we try to get the best deals we can on our motel room, but we don't want to stay in a scuzzy place either. When we stayed last year, we... More

My family needed a place to stay for 1 night near the airport and found a good price on this hotel. While we were not expecting much, the Waterfront Inn delivered great service, comfortable beds, and a clean room. We arrived late at night after most restaurants had closed, however the reception desk was prepared with menus of places that... More

This place is relatively inexpensive and conveniently located to the airport but it is NOT worth it! We arrived too late to get a refund if we did not take the room. We should have just absorbed the cost and moved on. The first room they put us in smelled so bad we couldn't stay in it so they gave... More

I'm not sure if this place is a hotel or a motel being English but it was very nice considering what I paid for it. The staff were very friendly and it was about 10mins from the airport. I was travelling alone so I was a bit wary of my surroundings but I would say I would stay there again.... More

Best value for money. If you are picking most economical night stay due to flight issues, do consider them. The staff is super helpful and although breakfast was not included they offered a complimentary healthy one. They were very accomodative with young kids. Thanks fellows.

We knew this was a small, family-run hotel, but chose it because of the liberal parking policy. It shares a large parking lot in the little suburb of Essington with a Holiday Inn. This allows you to use the shuttle from the Holiday Inn at no charge. It is a short distance from the Philadelphia airport. It has been upgraded... More

I made the mistake of booking at this hotel when the hotels near the convention center were booked for a scientific conference. There were other places with restaurants within a few blocks walking distance. This hotel has a Holiday Inn Express next door which I should have booked. I never eat the breakfast and guests at this hotel try to... More

Do not stay here unless you have absolutely no other options. Here's the hit list: 1. Hair left strewn about the bathroom floor and sink 2. Undetermined smell throughout the room 3. Furniture falling apart 4. Holes in walls 5. Sheets seemed dirty 6. Free breakfast = store-bought cereal put in a plastic container 7. The external door didn't close... More
