Location is good. Staff needs to improve their customer service and be more friendly. Also, if staff recommends a service such as coordinating airport shuttle they should be proactive and ensure that those arrangements are happening. We requested the service per the hotels recommendation and the shuttle was late and called the hotel to say they weren't picking us up....

It is disheartening to hear that you encountered such a difficult situation due to an error, of no fault of your own and especially disappointed...

Very friendly, clean, best location and good price. If you are looking for a affordable place to stay in downtown Philly, the Rodeway in is a very good choice! Brian, the Mamager at the front desk was the nicest and most competent guy i've met during my trip.

While there have been significate cosmetic upgrades to the building, the room was pretty much the same. The bathroom layout was odd with the rocking toilet right outside the walk in shower. The few towels in the room looked like they were several years old, mostly thread bare.

Overall, the people who work here made our stay enjoyable. The room that we stayed in is a one bedroom and surprisingly it has all what we need for a very cheap price. The location itself is wonderful as it is easily accessible to go from your hotel to a destination spot.

The location is great but the hotel needs work. Yes it is an old building, but cleanliness and repair is something Choice Hotels expect. The other issue deals with parking. The public lot is across the street which is not a problem. Two different lobby attendants told us parking was included in the motel charge and it was good until...

That location of this hotel is great. Right in the heart of the city between market and chestnut. There are tons of restaurants and bars to walk to (and insomnia cookies). The hotel was clean. It was very old and small (small room, elevator, halls)but served is purpose. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The location is perfect. It is a few steps away from everything (city hall, independence hall, reading terminal market etc.) The staff are friendly specially Michael. Our only concerns thou are (1) the carpet are old, maybe because they are still renovating the place, (2) the AC is centralized so we have to call frontdesk to turn up/down the temp...

The place was very clean and room service did a great job. I can't complain about the service other than that the older stocky gentleman was a little rude at times but other than that it was a very clean and friendly place to stay.
