I was greeted at the front desk pleasantly and the checkin process was very smooth and quick. The breakfast options are huge but enough for a grab and go. Cereal, pancakes and some type of muffin/danish was provided amongst a few other things. The outside of the hotel looks a little sketchy and rundown but the inside of the room... More

Honestly, i had a pleasant experience. It doesn't look as impeccable as other hotel chains. But with some attention to minor details and cosmetic touch ups, it could look just as nice. The room was clean; the sheets and the bathroom, the most important parts to me, were very clean. The staff members were really nice, and the service was... More

Found the property on a third party website, and was a little apprehensive at first. The front desk attendants were nice and the rooms were very clean. They also had quality Wifi. I would probably stay again.

So let me start by saying no bed bugs and not an insect to be seen. For most budget hotels, that's a huge deal. The price was excellent and location was perfect. A few hotels closer by a few hundred feet but significantly more money. The staff was not your typical corporate hotel type, but for all their imperfections, they... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights because we were in town for a football game and were on a budget. I booked through priceline.com and for 2 nights it was less than $200. You would pay this much for one night at other hotels. Our room looked just like the pictures posted. We stayed in room 257... More

I came to town to visit my daughter, and was looking for something that was interesting for a place to stay. My room, on the 3rd floor with the water view, was just what I wanted. It was clean with two queen beds, a great shower, and smelled like nothing but a room. The hotel has quick and easy access... More

We chose this hotel as a stopover from NY JFK to Norfolk Virginia. It was a nice, clean hotel, with lovely views over the river. The room was large, with good sized bathroom. Tea&coffee making facilities. Good value for money. cannot comment on the breakfast as we missed it! But I know it was available. If you enjoy plane spotting,... More

After reading some of the other reviews, I can't believe we stayed at the same place! It was difficult even finding the office - no sign on the door. We arrived after 10 PM - just needed an overnight stay for an early flight. First question - can I put you on the 3rd floor? Second - are you parking... More

Hello Cbdtech - thank you for taking the time to write a review. I would like to offer our deepest apology that we did not meet your expectations. We love the fact that the hotel is hidden and unlike other hotels in this area we are located in a quite area along the Delaware River. Parking is always free while... More

Right on the river, the hotel is in a great place and it's hard to beat the price. It's a little worn out but the staff are so nice they overcome the deficiencies. They will provide a driver if you need to go out and they have a partner airport shuttle service with the Holiday Inn next door.

The Aorport Waterfront Inn has a wondeful view onto the Delaware River. The staff is friendly and helpful. The shuttle to the airport/trainstation into downtown Philadelphia works really good. Breakfast is good and has a variety.
