I stayed their twice, with my prospective college applicant son. The first time we stayed two nights and our room was not cleaned, because we were in it till 10 AM and we got skipped. Don't buy passes to the gym as there is very limited availability. The second time we stayed, we were informed they no longer offered $5...

Greetings, First of all, thank you for choosing the Conwell Inn, not once, but twice. I deeply apologize for missing any opportunity to allow for a better experience while you were here. While there are several things that were definitely within our reach to take care of for you, I apologize for your dismay at the coffee shop and the...

The Conwell Inn is located on the main campus of Temple University and very convenient if you have business on campus or need to be in that area of town. The Inn is a short walk to the train line (which services the airport) and a subway station. It is adjacent to a coffee shop with pasteries. There is also...

We loved our stay at the Conwell Inn! We took a chance on this little out-of-the-way hotel based on reviews we'd read on a travel site. It was a great location: two blocks from the SEPTA, safe for walking about at all hours, and just a minute's walk from some groovy carry-out restaurants. Tons of food trucks were in the...

Despite the fact that weekend staff was not top notch in service, it was a good place to stay. Literally on the campus of Temple University, you might think it's closed to outsiders, but it's not. It's even pet friendly. Bathroom was huge with a Jacuzzi tub plus breakfast. Parking was a bit of a headache being about 2 blocks...

Nice small hotel. great staff who try to make your stay as easy as possible. great cookies in the afternoon, weak breakfast. Parking available, but not great, really small spaces in an alley behind the hotel. if driving there use your smallest vehicle. Right in the middle of temple univ. really only reason to stay here would be to visit...

When visiting Temple University, this is a great convenience. Literally on campus, with a few eateries (college type, not fancy) yards away. The price is good, and the staff tries to make your stay pleasant. They have large rooms and comforable beds, the bathrooms leave a bit to be desired but still acceptable. Not a luxury hotel at all, but...

Excellent small hotel in the center of Temple Campus university in Philadelphia. Quiet, clean, confortable, safe. Easy access from town center ( 8 minutes by subway, station at 200 yards) and from airport ( 40 minutes by direct train, station at 400 yards). Nice staff. Grand room and grand bathroom. During the day some noise in the street by the...

Large and clean rooms and bathroom. The location is also very good (it is the only hotel inside Temple Univ). Cookies and fresh coffee from 3 to 6 pm was a nice surprise. The only issue was the wifi internet connection, that is usually too slow.

This is an inn on Temple University campus. The building is charming, and the room was nice, clean, and had a great bathroom and shower. The inn offers a straightforward continental breakfast in the mornings until 10, has cookies in the afternoon, and coffee/tea all day. The people working behind the counter were helpful. It was very quiet, although that...

Very nice hotel, very clean, nice staff. Definitely reserve the parking spot they offer. Also, be sure to read the directions on the web site and not rely on your GPS. We had a bit of trouble finding it but when we called we got great friendly directions. We just didn't like the noise from the students walking by.
