      Historical Traveler Reviews Microtel Inn & Suites By Wyndham Philadelphia Airport

      Scary!!

      from

      have resevations for the end of Oct. haven;t stayed yet , but after all I have read about the reviews, sounds like I may have made a bad mistake by booking there, hope to be wrong.

      Stay Away if you Can!

      from

      If you are stuck staying at this hotel prepare yourself. First off if you follow MapQuest directions to this place you'll be driving around in circles. If you call for help they don't know how to get you there either. That is of course if they even answer the phone.

      Upon check-in you will encounter a unprofessional and indifferent staff. When you receive the keys to your room you will be taking the elevator with one of two types of people. One, poor suckers such as yourself that didn't know better or two long time residents.

      As you walk through the hallway you will notice a laundry room where some guests seemed to have taken residence (I'm talking long term here). When you open the door to your room you may if you are lucky find some of the same items we did. A cigarette butt on the floor, a sticky phone, and little hairs on the sheets.

      The best part of this hotel is the Chinese Take Out Restaurant that delivers to this place. Trust me, unless you've been sleeping on the streets for the past few days, stay away!

      Cheap, but stay away!

      from

      I was attracted to this place because of it's proximity to the airport, and low price. Big mistake! The staff was rude upon check in. The water pipes had burst and the lower 2' of wall in the whole reception area was torn out. The room was filthy. The phone had some kind of a substance covering it, so that none of us wanted to use it. Maybe this is intentional, to keep you from calling the front desk and complaining. There was hair on the sheets and in the bathroom. Also I could see through the sheets and the pillows were about 2" thick. The walls seemed to be made of cardboard as we were awakened every time people passed through the hallway outside our room. The continental breakfast was pretty rough too. We took a look and decided to only eat the items that were sealed in plastic. The juice machine was leaking water onto the middle of the floor, creating a huge puddle with a rag laying in the middle of it. All in all, this place is a dump. I wouldnt stay there again if it was for free.

      Microtel below any standard

      from

      It is one of the lousiest hotels I ever experienced in this country. Poorly maintained, filthy, and just not the place to stay. Unfortunately, I had, since I had no reservation, and all other hotels in the area were booked. The only positive thing to say is the wireless Internet, which works fine. All negative items would burst this comment box!

      Dismal

      from

      I stayed here on a stormy night after many flights were cancelled. My check-in experience:

      - Call from the airport courtesy phone: no reply.

      - Someone else who has been calling lots of places says "They said they have plenty of rooms and you don't need a reservation"

      - Call 3 more times: no reply.

      - Take a taxi to the hotel. Ask the driver to wait while I check on room availability.

      - Receptionist 1 says "We have room". Send the taxi away, return to hotel.

      - Receptionist 2 says "We are full". "But he said you have empty rooms!" "Ask him then".

      - Get a room from Receptionist 1.

      I can hardly remember such a bare room. A "suite" with a set of kitchen cupboards, all of them empty. One bar of soap in the bathroom, no shampoo. But it was clean and comfortable.

      I paid $125.

      Nice Location/Nice Staff......

      from

      Super convenient for park and fly. Staff is very nice but rooms are not up to par. Continental breakfast in the AM but nothing great. Early vans fill up quickly, so don't be late.

      Housekeeping staff is now subcontracted and tends to be a little rude and will try to rush you out of your room in order to leave early.

      Rooms are not as clean as they have been, so management needs to pay attention.

      It can be a little raucous on weekends with groups, so try to get a quiet room. Overall, great value but don't have high expectations.

      Dorm Living

      from

      We used the Park and Fly deal with this hotel.

      First let me say that the price is cheap. For $70 we stayed over night, parked our car for 5 days and had a continental breakfast. Now let me tell you that even for that price I would not stay again.

      Hotel hard to find with the directions on their web site.

      Not enough parking spaces for the amount of cars. Sign on the front door greets you with the notice that you will be towed if you are blocking another car.

      Seems to me that some people are using this hotel as their home. Large laundry rooms on the 2 floors I saw and cooking odors run throughout the hotel, even though there is not a restaurant on the premises. Breakfast room had remains from the continental breakfast at 7:00PM. I guess no one vacuumed it all day. Hallways also had debris on floor. Next day ,breakfast area had same debris only alittle bit more now.

      Rooms are sparsely furnished and dirty. The phone in our room was filthy. I have never seen anything like it at any hotel I have ever stayed at. It takes many trys just to get someone to answer the phone at reception.

      When we called to be picked up at the airport on our return we could not get anyone to answer the phone. We both picked up a phone at the airport and and just let it ring until someone answered. I won. Shuttle service was prompt.

      For these reasons, I can not recommend this hotel no matter what the price.

      OK for parking car, but ...

      from

      We used this hotel because it was close to the airport and we had an early flight. We checked in late and left early, a total of about 9 hours. From our experience, I believe this might have been considered to be an extended stay at this place. The exterior of the hotel is OK, but the room we had was the filthiest room we've ever seen. The bedspread was thoroughly stained and dirty, and had several cigarette burns through it. When we removed it we found that the blanket was covered with an estimated 50 long hairs that almost seemed to be woven into the surface. After we removed about 10 we gave up. We removed the blanket and found that there were also a few hairs on the sheet, but we were able to brush them off. I would venture a guess that the bed might have been changed about a week ago, and the last visitor had a collie, or something similar, in bed with them. The heater thermostat didn't work so we had a choice of no heat or too much heat. Because the heater was covered with a thick coating of grime we chose no heat. We decided to sleep with our clothes on, and covered the pillows with tissues.

      The parking area was very good, and the shuttle to the airport was prompt. However on the way back we had to call the hotel 3 times before the phone was answered. Then we had a wait of about 40 minutes for the shuttle to arrive. We were lucky; the other people in the shuttle with us had called more often and had a longer wait.

      GREAT VALUE FOR THE PRICE!

      from

      Stayed prior to a early Saturday morning flight to Las Vegas. The rooms are plain and non-descript, however, seemed to be very clean. We showed up early for the shuttle (highly recommended as it is first-come, first-serve) and made it in plenty of time for a 7:30 AM flight. Upon our return we used the courtesy phone and were picked up in a short period of time. Our car wouldn't start and AAA was going to take hours to show. One of the desk clerks found someone to jumpstart us and get us on our way saving hours of waiting time. Considering the price of the room is no more than a weeks parking we found it much more convenient than driving in so early in the morning and having to find parking and get to the airport in time to clear security. For the price you can't go wrong.

      Great Price But ..........

      from

      Stayed at the Microtel on 2/17. We had an early flight on the 18th.

      When we checked in we were told that the airport shuttle runs every 1/2 hr - first come first served. We wanted to catch the 6 am shuttle so we got down to the desk at 5:40 just to make sure we would get on. When we got to the lobby, there was already a line, we got the last 2 spots on the 6 am shuttle at 5:40!! Seems the people ahead of us couldn't fit on the 5:30 am shuttle and had to wait for the 6 am. When we left on the 6 am shuttle there were at least 10 people left behind - that I assume had to wait for the 6:30 shuttle.

      Coming back, at 5 pm on 2/24, we were picked up around 5:35 and got back to the Microtel in about 10 minutes. No problems at all getting back to our car. This part worked really well.

      The rooms very pretty small but for the price and the fact that we were going to be there for less than 12 hrs - they were ok! We left too early try the continental breakfast, so can't give an opinion on that!

      We picked this place because of the significant price difference between the Microtel and many of the other Park, Stay and Fly hotels in the area. But if you can't get on a shuttle to get to the airport, the price savings becomes insignificant!!!!
