The house is located about 11 miles from the city so not too bad. The neighborhood was a little shady but you can park your car behind a gate. The place was clean and the room was very nice with a king sized bed. The self serve breakfast was fine with pastries, cereal, fruit, bread, bagels, coffee and tea. Overall I would recommend staying here if you don't mind a little drive to Philly
