Such a charming old property in a great location. The staff is friendly and attentive. The rooms are well equipped with high ceilings, well planned space, lots of amenities like safe, refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer, iron. Beds are comfy with lots of pillows, extra blankets. I could live here.

My stay in Rodeway Inn Center City Philadelphia
I have to admit from making reservations to checking out, the staff was excellent. The service was very good. Although my room was a bit small, it was very comfortable. Everytime i went in and out i was asked if all was ok. I was told where i could go within Center City Philadelphia. Location was great near everything. The only thing i would suggest is to have breakfast available so you dont have to go out so early. At least toast, bagels and muffins available. Another suggestion is that as a smoker they should have something outside to throw out the cigarette butts in because i didnt like throwing them out on the street. And one last thing being its location and how busy the street is, the front door should be locked at all times and use a system where you use your hotel key to access the building. Their manager and evening attendant were GREAT and helpful people. Thank you for making my stay a memorable one. Thank you B and P (you know who you are) for all your help. You were 2 great people. I shall recommend this Inn. Whoever does this review please let these 2 people know how happy i was with their service. Had no complaints. I realize this is not a 5 star hotel but it does serve its purpose. Once again thank you very much. I shall repeat my stay when i return.

Terrible place for the price that we paid
The cleanliness in the room was terrible. Bed sheets, pillow covers, linens and comforters were Dirty and had nasty stains on them. None of them appeared to have been changed for months. The light on the sink in the bathroom was not working. Overall a Very Disappointing experience.

Clean and comfortable room. Fridge did not work in room 306. They could have given more discount on parking. $6.00 on a $34.00 charge is pretty insignificant But great location!!

One and done
Unhappy we couldn’t control the temp in the room. It was very warm. Shower water temp was on the cool side.
Terry L, us1 night trip
Good 6.0
very cold
The staff is very friendly, check in was a breeze. the hotel is decently updated and poorly maintained. It's in a great location. Traffic was loud which did not bother me as much as the lack of temperature control in the room. I was there in November and the room was freezing. The miniscule wall heater was of little help. Can't imagine how it would be in winter or during the summer for that matter.
