Stayed for 2 nights for a concert in Camden- we didn't need to be in Philly, and this was about 40% less expensive than some of the other hotels about 3 miles down the road. This worked for us.
We checked in late- around 10 pm, and the check in was pleasant. All of the staff that we encountered were polite, friendly and very nice to deal with.
The trick to enjoying this property is to realize that it is really different from a regular 'hotel'. Notice that the word 'hotel' is not even in the name. These rooms are like a studio apartment with a small kitchen area. This is handy for leftovers, or if you need a fridge for any reason. There are cups/dishes & silverware for 2 people in the rooms, and I believe a coffee pot, which we did not use.
The target clientele for this property are people who may need to stay for a week or weeks at a time- short term rentals and such. Perhaps working in the area on a project. So housekeeping is only done on a weekly basis, and towels are refreshed weekly or if you take your used ones to the front desk in the morning to trade out for new ones. This is fine- but if you go and are expecting a mint on your pillow of your made up bed with changed linens, you are in for a big surprise. If your expectations are in check with what they have to offer, you'll be fine. It was no big deal to walk down the hall to the front desk with the towels before we left and get fresh ones.
The grab & go breakfast was coffee/hot beverages, oatmeal packets, apples & oranges, oatmeal bars and pre-packaged muffins. Very simple.
We did not use the wi-fi.
We had 2 rooms on the first floor. This was convenient, as we were near the key-card locking side entrance.
The bed was a little hard, the towels were a bit scratchy. There were soap bars and a packet of dishwashing liquid, but no other amenities- remember, not the same stuff available as a hotel.
If there was a safe in the room, I didn't see it.
The location was right off the 295 exit on Route 70. In your GPS, you might find it listed as Marlton PIke. We couldn't get Route 70 to come up. You WILL need to do a Jersey Jughandle U turn to get to the hotel or out of the hotel, depending on which way you are coming from. Follow the U Turn directions or make sure you have your GPS turned on. If you are not used to this NJ thing, you will get frustrated quickly! You can't really walk to anywhere from here- this is entirely a driving location.
Noise quality- if there was loud activity in the hallways you will hear it. But this isn't a rowdy place. As an extended stay property, this is really for the early to bed and up and out early for work crowd. Short term guests will still feel equally welcome, though.
There is a laundry & vending machine room on the first floor near the lobby.
For the price paid, it was an excellent value. It was clean, in a safe area, and adequately comfortable. If you are willing to think outside the regular hotel box, this is a good choice. If you are looking for the regular hotel amenities- daily housekeeping, fancy lobby, business center, pool, etc. this might not work. It was fine for us. This is a solid, decent property.
