... I was visiting. There isnt a lot of hip hop in Maine but I found one rapper called Spose. He has a track of the same name but his use reference to not being taken seriously as a rapper because of being from Maine. Here's a link. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gHoXgw3soE 8&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DgHoXgw 3soE8 Anyway the statement came true when I tried to get ...
... It bucketed as we were driving there so the rain didn’t hold off long! We had an hour and a half here to shop at the mall and eat dinner which was good and I had free time to do whatever, but I ended up going to the Duane Reade convenience store to get toiletries I needed and snacks so at least I got what I needed.
We headed back to camp at about 7.45pm and made it back with rain falling and lightning lighting up the sky. Most of us napped or slept since we were ...
... plane was an Airbus 319. This aircraft has two exit rows, but there is only one window exit on each side. Thus, there is no window seat in the front exit row. (My original seat assignment simply didn't exist.) And since I was in the second exit row's window seat, there was no seat in front of me. Lots of legroom!
The flight was not full, and no one was in in the middle seat next to me. ...
... in a slotmachine... Creditcard? Never heard off... So it all went manual even with one of those oldfashion clippers to punch holes in the paper ticket, indicating the date and month. Funny. Funniest of all was the guy in charge of our carriage, he had a ty that was covered with little red and blue lights that were flickering. The ty itself was something from the Airforce.... And he wore this all with regards to a big airforce festival that was held in Atlantic City.
... br> The truth is that the steeple was in bad condition and historians today highly doubt that the Bell actually rang in 1776. However, its association with the Declaration of Independence was fixed in the collective mythology.
Bell as Symbol
After the divisive Civil War, Americans sought a symbol of unity. The flag became one such symbol, and the Liberty Bell another. To help heal the wounds of the war, the Liberty Bell would travel across ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Philadelphia Airport Essington
I don't know why Expedia gives this 3-stars because this truly is a nasty 1-star location. I'm just glad that our stay wasn't too long.
This hotel was the worst hotel that I have ever been to. The lighting in the hallways was dim at best (there were many bulbs not working), a Pack and Play was left discarded in the hallway and the carpets were cruddy. In the room the lighting and the carpeting was just as bad. The blankets had vomit stains and the mattress looked like it had urine stains. In the bathroom, the sink and tub had mildew and the ceiling tile was about to fall down due to a leaking ceiling. The ceiling tile was bowed and stained brown from the leak and the mildew. The floor in the bathroom was so bad that my sneakers stuck to it when I stepped on it. Even the vanity top had dried stains on it. It was a very dirty, disgusting place. I would have rather slept on the floor of the airport than ever stay there again.
Yuck! Yuck and Yuck!!!
The worst rat hole I ever stayed in. And I've stayed in some pretty awful places before. USAirways offered a "reduced" rate of $69. I would never stay there again if they paid me! As one reviewer said: "STAY AWAY" !
Nasty - Stay Away!
I stayed at this hotel for one night when U.S. Airways made me miss my connecting flight. This was one of the most disgusting places I have ever stayed. The lobby looks fine. However, the hallway on my floor had not been vacuumed and was covered with trash. The curtain and carpet in my room were torn. My sheets had stains that looked like they were from blood. The bathroom had not been cleaned properly. I would never stay here again.
Smelly and nasty
If you're not a smoker when you check in, you will be by the time you check out.. the entire hotel absolutely reeks of musty stale smoke, even in the (alleged) nonsmoking wings. The hallway carpet was grimy, the rooms had stained and peeling wallpaper, with three unmatched chairs around a wobbly table.
Hmm, the on the plus side, let's see.. well, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was very good.
I could not wait to get out into fresh air, then realized my clothes still smelled.
(We only were there with a group, otherwise I would not even have checked in.)
The Ramada in Essington spends more money on decorating the entrance and the lobby than on maintenance in the rooms. There is black mold in the tub and both sinks were clogged. There are spider webs all over the deck and the curtains and bedding were dingy. There are holes in the walls. The only saving grace was the service which was excellent.
One night was one night too long
This airport hotel had a park and drive offer which we wanted to take advantage of since we were flying out of Philadelphia. The hotel's housekeeping was so bad that the sheets were just laid over the mattress - not tucked in at all.
When we went to the "fitness center" we found two old machines in a makeshift former bedroom. There was no source of water available or extra towels. All in all - a failing attempt to provide a place to stay.
I missed a flight and was referred here from the airport. It is filthy and disgusting, you would be better off sleeping at the airport. Hotel is old, dirty and in desperate need of renovation. The staff is inefficient and could care less about guest satisfaction.
My friend's plan was cancel, and US Airways, but he up here for the night. The check-in was long, though it was not their fault, because a lot of plans were canceled by US Air. I see why they booked us there instead of a closer hotel to the airport. It does say Ramada Inn Airport, but it was a few miles up the street on 291. The lobby was okay, but the room....ewwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!! Run Run Run. run away. the bed was like cardboard. Small tiny bathroom makes you feel like you are in a closet!
I had not planned on having an overnight stay in Philadelphia; however, after missing my connecting flight the airlines set me up with a room at no expensive. They do have a shuttle that runs every half hour which was rather convenient. The front desk agent that assisted me was not welcoming and not very friendly. I stayed on the 7th floor of the hotel. The hallway had ceiling tiles missing and wires hanging through the openings. The room itself was of average size and not very clean.
