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...

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...

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...

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,...

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...

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...

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.

Great view, friendly and helpful staff. On the less positive the continental breakfast lacked the normal yogurt and fruit. If you like carbs and carbs alone it was perfect, but I can't do flour products which was disappointing. The room was ok. I appreciated the complimentary ride from the airport!

My boyfriend and I have come to the area last year and this year for Rock Allegiance. We love to travel and usually have to do it relatively cheap, so we try to get the best deals we can on our motel room, but we don't want to stay in a scuzzy place either. When we stayed last year, we...

My family needed a place to stay for 1 night near the airport and found a good price on this hotel. While we were not expecting much, the Waterfront Inn delivered great service, comfortable beds, and a clean room. We arrived late at night after most restaurants had closed, however the reception desk was prepared with menus of places that...

This place is relatively inexpensive and conveniently located to the airport but it is NOT worth it! We arrived too late to get a refund if we did not take the room. We should have just absorbed the cost and moved on. The first room they put us in smelled so bad we couldn't stay in it so they gave...
