I stayed here 4 days for a conference.. this place is really well located in the downtown..and is pretty cheap for its location and quality of rooms.. though the lift is cramped and creaky.. that doesnt matter much.. I met a wonderful guy at the reception who was extremely helpful.. he went out of his way to help me fix my laptop in the dead of night.. I cant thank him enough

This is a great little hotel right in the heart of the action in Philly. Perfect for anyone going to a show at either the Forrest or Walnut Theater. It's a small place, the hallways are very narrow and the elevator is small. But, it's inexpensive ($130/night for 2 queens) and in the heart of the action. Right around the corner from El Vez (great Mexican), across the street from Starbucks, a quick walk to Macy's and the shopping in Philly.

In the rooms, it was clean and nicely appointed. One nice plus were the free bottles of water, and the mini keurig for coffee. Ice machine is on the 2nd floor. Water pressure was great in the room. Sheets were clean and fresh and the staff downstairs pleasant and accommodating.

It's a definite recommend for someone looking for a good value in the city.

Parking is across the street in the garage, make sure to get your ticket validated by the staff at the front desk to pay a discounted rate.

Room Tip: The rooms on the street are a little noisy, you are in the heart of all the action in Center City, s...

My wife and I stayed for five days during the recent Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show (she was one of the fortunate artists at this incredible show). We booked and prepaid early and our stay averaged $90/day including all taxes, which was far cheaper than anything else downtown and beat most of the hotel prices at the airport. The hotel was in a historical building (probably an old hotel) and was completely renovated. Our room was small but well laid out with closet, new bathroom/shower, flat screen TV, fridge and microwave. Our bed was quite comfortable and the pillows were ok. Hotel location is excellent for anything downtown, and there are many restaurants available. Room was quiet (although we were at the back of the hotel and away from street traffic). Hotel lobby needs some art on the walls. Staff very friendly and welcoming. No food/breakfast available (except coffee in room.. which was actually drinkable), but not a concern because of all the places for food in the area (Starbucks is across the street). I would definitely return to this hotel, but unfortunately, I suspect the price will go up when people ignore the "Roadway Inn" stigma and stay here. What a great deal!

Nice little hotel, currently on our 2nd night here. Location is great right in the centre and just blocks away from everything, price is exceptional compared to elsewhere , lacks vending machines/breakfast etc but places on the street where you can go for this so not the end of the world, room is nice and simple but the bed is relatively uncomfortable and sfter reading reviews i must say this surprises me, staff are helpful, worth staying in for the price, would recommend for people on a budget. Wifi is very fast on our floor aswell which is handy as most hotels offer generally poor wifi.

If you want to be very well located, spend little and still be very well attended, then you will not want to choose another place to stay in Philadelphia. The hotel has been renovated so the rooms are all new! Alex Guzan and always very helpful and ready to help in any matter. Whenever we return to Philadelphia I will stay there for sure!

We stayed at the Roadway in on a stop over to an international destination. We wanted something within walking distance of the Historical Philadelphia area. The Roadway Inn has been remodeled recently, but still maintains some of its char as a older historical building. You will be surprised by the small elevator, however it is quaint. The room we had was very well re-done, clean and met our needs for the trip. Susan, the receptionist was most welcoming and very accommodating to our early check in, and late check out. She was also most helpful with providing information as well as providing taxi pickup for us.
