Would definitly visit again. Very clean, convenient location, friendly owners, reasonable price. Who could ask for anything more? Breakfast tasted good. Sheets were soft and bed was comfortable. Nothing negative to remark...entire visit was great.

My husband and I recently stayed here in the Philadelphia room (I believe that is the name). The room was very nice, as were the snacks provided. The location was very convenient to many attractions. The only thing we did not enjoy was what was offered for breakfast--we may have missed something, but it seemed that cereal and granola were...

Beautiful old home. Dont park out front too long or you may get a parking ticket. Otherwise,very nice. Didn't realize full breakfast is only Saturday and Sunday. Great location for university parents or museum visitors.

Have stayed there several times as my son is at Drexel. Always lovely, very clean. Hosts are great and always learn a lot from the other guests at breakfast. The veranda is a great place to watch the world go by. Can't ask for a better location or value.

With a son at Drexel, this is now my place to stay when I come to see him. Room is clean and spacious, full of character too. Breakfast was delicious.

This is a very quaint Victorian style B&B. The property is family owned and operated and the hospitality is very welcoming! My husband and I stayed here one night in August and had a very nice experience. The property is in a great location, very close by to attractions, restaurants, etc. If ever in Philly, we would definitely stay here...

My hubby and I were in Philly for our anniversary weekend. We were welcomed with a very thoughtful split of champagne. Dennis, Liz, Chris and Jules were fantastic hosts with great 'concierge' recommendations. The inn is a perfect, romantic, Victorian B & B - beautifully appointed and in fabulous shape with great stained glass windows, antiques and a perfect layout....

We visit our daughter that attends a university close to this B&B. The convenience of the location is perfect and the inn keepers are engaging, personable and ready to help with anything you may need, including ideas for attractions in the city. The B&B is spotless! I am very picky about bathrooms, and this B&B never fails to meet my...

Today I stopped by this B&B to do a "site visit" for a school project, giving the owners no warning that I was coming. I was immediately greeted by the innkeeper, Chris. He was so friendly and so helpful. He showed me the entire B&B, giving me the history of the home and walked me through each beautiful room. The...

We enjoyed an excellent Summer weekend at the Cornerstone. It was spotless and comfortable. Although located in a Victorian vintage home, the rooms are air conditioned and everything is carefully maintained. The hosts are lovely and helpful. They offer a nice breakfast on weekends and the rates are quite reasonable. The location is ideal for access to the U Penn...
