I stayed in this hotel overnight when I went to speak at a conference on Temple's campus. It was great to be in the middle of the college hustle and bustle but still nestled in a quiet, historic little hotel right next to campus police. It was very affordable, and I will definitely stay here again. Insider tip -- because...

Great night's stay at this hidden gem snuggled on the Temple U campus. Room was spacious, beds comfortable, and staff very friendly and attentive. Very convenient access to Septa trains for 7 min trip to Philly Center City.

We booked this blind based on looking for a location close to Temple Dental School. Was a bit hard to locate entrance but once we did it was good to see we were on campus and felt very safe with police station next door. We had a very large double Queen and the room was freshly renovated. One of the...

The guy who checked us in, I believe his name was Nazeer was great. Very friendly, offered us breakfast options and a great cheesesteak pave near by. His character was absolutely inviting and welcoming. Morning lady never offered her name and seemed distracted and rather un-engaging. Hotel itself could use a facelift, dated and boring.

Dated small hotel. Room size is average. Bathroom dated and needs repair. Very inconvenient parking rules. When we checked in to the hotel, we were told that no more parking spaces are available and nearest parking garage is 7 minutes walk from the hotel. For people visiting their kids at the University, this is the only choice to stay. Who...

The hotel caters for Temple University parents. If you want to stay close to your child in Temple, this is the only place to stay. But the hotel needs overhauling. Facilities are ancient. The bathrooms need to be upgraded; so are room furniture. The front desk staffs are helpful and pleasant. The room rates are low enough (value for money).

This hotel has definitely seen better days. Our room was quite dated and run down. Note that at least some rooms have a few stairs inside the room (between the bathroom and the beds). The Inn is tucked inside of the Temple Campus, and with current construction you need to walk about a block to reach the road to catch...

The people were nice and the hotel was fair but... There is construction going on all around the hotel. the hammering started at 7AM. Not good!! the other problem was parking. It is super limited. we reserved a spot that was supposed to be guaranteed but somebody took it and the hotel did not even try to have it towed...

We have stayed here previously and just returned from another 3 night stay. Our family had a suite and a double room for 5 adults and we were extremely comfortable. Front desk staff was very efficient and friendly. Rooms were clean with comfy beds and plenty of towels. One night we requested additional towels from the cleaning lady and they...

Overall the hotel was OK. Definitely not at the level of a Marriott, but if you ar visiting Temple you cannot beat the location, I wish the city would do something to improve safety, because the neighborhood is not safe to walk, which is a real pity. The room is spacious, however, I found out that the bed sheets were...
