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.

You know if you're from Philadelphia then you know the rep of of this area of Delaware County. I thought it would be dirty and nasty... But it was actually nice and clean. Plus that view was amazing. It helped with the self reflection I was going thru. Oh and the manager guy at the front desk was extremely nice...

Airlines put us up at this hotel and we arrived late at night and it's behind an abandoned building (with posted signs on doors "No Trespassing") with poor signage and inadequate lighting. Yes, it's on the waterfront, but it's run down. I have no idea how much this hotel cost but I would stay at the nicer, newer, cleaner Holiday...

I really enjoyed my stay here. When I was doing my hotel search the reviews did not excite me. But I decided to take a chance. The staff is so nice and helpful. My room was more spacious than some of the regular rooms in the so called 4 star hotel. The view was great of the water it was...

Rooms r clean. Good river view. Hotel owner Mr Ashok Patel is fantastic person. His hospitality was excellent, he himself helped me to carry my luggage. Wifi was excellent. Airport shuttle service is an added advantage. It seems to be economic extension of Holiday inn.

This a perfect place to stay. Super friendly and helpful staff. Beds are super comfortable. Breakfast is decent. Free shuttle to airport. Left car there for the week for minimal price. Very clean. We drove from new york to fly from phile. Located next to a holiday inn express but just as nice with better price

It's not out of this world, but the water is warm, the heater works, the tv has cable and overall everything worked fine. Reason I deducted a star was because right before I left, I noticed the room didn't lock! Nothing happened of course and nothing was lost, but still shouldn't have happened. The owners were really nice and let...
