Swarthmore College visit

We are coming in from Chicago to visit Swarthmore. I am trying to decide on the best place to stay. We will have a car rental so we can get around without problems. I prefer to stay somewhere close that is a safe area and will also provide some restaurant options for dinners. My preferred price range is $100 to $125 per night.

I have read some reviews that said the Essington area is a little questionable. What about Springfield or Media? Other suggestions?

Have you visited this site? www.onebigcampus.com/hotels_all.htm Media is a great little town. I would choose it in a heartbeat over Essington.
