      Individual guest reviews

      • Family with children
        3.2

        False advertising -- no pool, no restaurant- no microwave, refrigerator. Staff was not knowledgeable about local restaurants, directions, etc. Refused housekeeping. The whole place was just shoddy.

      • Group of friends
        7.8

        The location was great, I was leaving on an early am flight and the free shuttle service to airport was a plus. The room was clean, the staff was helpful, and the price was excellent. Great place for the money!!!!!!!

        There was no hair dryer or coffee maker in the room, and they advertised a sports bar, but it was closed and appeared to be for a long time. The elevators were slightly shabby, but we really weren't put off enough by any of these negatives. We would definitely stay there again.

      • Family with children
        4.2

        We wanted to go swimming but the pool had no water in it and the staff said it was under maintenance. The bathroom could have been a lot cleaner and my children and I were almost burned using the shower because the cold water didn't work. The website said there would be a microwave and refridgerator in the room but there was neither. There only seemed to be air conditioning in the room because it was extremely warm in the hallways and the elevator.

      • Family with children
        7.0

        After reading reviews about this hotel my daughter was not happy with our choice. But after staying there, it wasn't as bad as the reviews led us to believe. It's not a 5 star resort, but I'd rather spend my money on the trip and not at our hotel. It was clean, staff nice, location was perfect-close to the ball park. It was located in a nice part of town with cute shops, a great restaurant across the street, and close to a gas station.

        Our only complaint about the hotel is the elevator.....it was slow!!!

        I enjoyed the furniture and the bathroom tile. I also liked the color of the walls and carpet.I Enjoyed the view.....next time maybe a different room.I Liked the location off the busline and the complimentary trip to the airport.

        The ice machines were not working.... The swimming pool was not available and the restaurant was not opened for business.

      • Older travelers

        They finally got the shower to work

        Almost everything; especially the obpressive heat in the room because the air conditioning wasn't working well.

      • Group of friends
        3.2

        There was no swimming pool or restuarant as stated on the website. The bedding and curtains had holes in them. It was about an hour walk from downtown, with only 2 restuarants nearby.

      • Family with children
        8.8

        The staff was very great at the hotel along with the amazing diner right across the street that made it really convenient for our family.

      • Family with children
        5.0

        Old furniture, bad sockts, old worn out comforters and the toilet covers are worn out.

        It was close to the Wells Fargo center, where we were going for a concert. Also, very close to the airport. Had a great view from our room. Definitely a budget hotel, saved us a lot of money, but I wouldn't recommend one count on the continental breakfast being gourmet.

        Only complaint I have is the complimentary breakfast was less than filling or appetizing, but for the price of the hotel, I wouldn't expect much more. Everything else was good.

      • Family with children
        6.2

        SHUTTLE from hotel to concert location.

        Toilet was not working properly and we had to switch rooms.

      • Older travelers

        If you are looking for a place to stay that is close to the Philadelphia Airport and/or Sports Complex, you can't beat the Skyview. It's within walking distance of the stadiums. We were staying overnight for a concert, and we took a shuttle from the hotel to the field, and were easily able to walk back after the show. Also, there are some great places to eat nearby. However, I wouldn't recommend this hotel if you plan to stay in the city for an extended period of time. One night was plenty for us.

        Our shower didn't work, which was a major inconvenience after spending the evening at a concert with 67,000 other people!

        A safe and tidy nights sleep only 20 mins bus ride from the city centre.

        It took two hours to get checked in, even though we were there after the 3pm check-in time. Very old and worn hotel rooms- didn't feel totally clean.
