Motel 6 Philadelphia - King of Prussia
Travel Blogs from King of Prussia
... I couldn't get to Ohio from Portland instead I had to go to Philadelphia to get there. So I stopped off in Philadelphia long enough for a Philly cheese steak roll - surprisingly good considering the ingredients are cheapest cuts of a cow you can get away with calling steak and a liquid version of the plastic cheese you put in burgers.
