It claims to be a hotel but it's more like a motel. A motel would probably be better since you can actually air the place out. This one is disgusting. Just look at the user submitted pictures and not the ones taken by management. The entire place stank like cigarette and since you can't open the windows, you can't air out the room. Don't even try to comment to the management and staff, because they simply tell you they can't do anything. You would have better luck screaming into their disgusting filthy 'pillows'. We got out as soon as we could, and afterwards tried to contact Holiday Inn. That was when Holiday Inn, the corporate HQ, told us to take a hike.
Unique Quality: If you like to smoke, this is the place to do it. You can smoke in the non-smoking rooms, you can smoke in the hallways. The management does not care.
Opinion of Price: less expensive than average

Nasty little hole
The entire place was absolutely disgusting. The place had visible patching done left and right, the furniture was broken in odd place, the carpet had odd stains on it, the bath tub had hair balls. Worse of all, the place stank like cigarettes, even in the rooms that were smoke free. When we asked the "management" about it, they said they couldn't do anything about it. We ended up staying up all night because the place was that disgusting.
Unique Quality: This was the nastiest place place I've stayed in, and I've stayed at many 2 star motel much nicer than this one.
I've been living in Bensalem, PA for over 10 years now. One of the nicest things about living here is your only a stones throw away from Philadelphia while still have the suburbs feeling. There's all kinds of things to do here from shopping and dining to horse track racing. Another nice thing is you get all 4 seasons here. From snow in the winter to 80 deg summer days.
