“A Solid Deal in Philadelphia, in the heart of Temple U.”
Reviewed 12 June 2007

I'd like to give my support to the Conwell Inn! This hotel turned out to be quite a little gem and a very good value. The hotel has a small, quaint feel to it (similar to a European hotel). It was nice to stay somewhere that felt more like a home than a chain.

The room we got was somewhat larger than most hotel rooms today, with some nice bay windows and a table at the end of the room.

The room & bathroom were clean. The front desk was very friendly.

Extras included wine and cheese/crackers in the lobby on Sunday evening. There were cookies on Monday evening. Both mornings we enjoyed a continental breakfast there.

Subway (SEPTA) is 1 block away.

This hotel is right inside Temple University. It is tricky to get to... you NEED to use a service entry road to get to the hotel's parking and entrance. Just call ahead to ask.

The only negative thing is that there are a lot of folks looking for handouts nearby, despite the presence of campus police.

If I went back to Philadelphia, I'd return to Conwell.

Reviewed 2 August 2006

My husband and I stayed here three nights and were quite satisfied with the experience. The hotel is in a decent area right on the campus of Temple University. Our room was small but clean and comfortable. There was a standard continental breakfast, free internet, we did find the housekeeping a little inconsistent but would definitely stay here again. It is cheaper than hotels right in the downtown area and, if you don't have a car, there are buses and a subway station very close by so you can get into Center City easily. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for others who are looking to save a little money and don't mind a brief commute to get to the downtown area.

  • Liked — Price, historic building, close to mass transit
  • Disliked — Housekeeping a little inconsistent, no tourist sites in immediate vicinity
  • Tips/Secrets — It's cheaper if you make reservations on the hotel's website
