The Philadelphia Airport - Essington Motel 6 is located just four miles from the Philadelphia International Airport, eight miles from the Veterans Stadium, and 20 miles from Mike*s famous Harley Davidson Museum.

This Motel 6 offers a wide variety of amenities including 24-hour front desk service, facilities for persons with disabilities, and complimentary coffee. For a nominal charge, facsimile services are available. Snack, beverage, and ice centers are available. The hotel offers several room types including rooms with one or two beds.

I have stayed at this hotel twice before in previous years, so when I booked my stay in June 2010 I was expecting a pretty good deal at a reasonable hotel. Unfortunately, on the third try, this hotel struck out and has lost my trust.
I booked a two-queen bed room with micro-fridge, which costs a little extra. Imagine my disappointment when I got into the room to discover that the refrigerator not only did not work, but that it had food and drinks left in it from the previous occupant. The office made no effort to adjust the room cost for the malfunctioning refrigerator.
Additionally, while walking on the carpet, I noticed that socks or the soles of the feet would become stained black. The tub did not drain, nor did the lavatory sink. These issues were reported to the office, with a request to be moved to a different room. The response was to send the maintenance person to unclog the drains and the housekeeper to "clean" the room again, which did not involve vacuuming.
Making things even more frustrating, the hotel has 2 ice machines in its 6-building compound. The machine in the front by the office was labeled "out of order." The machine serving the back three wings produced about 16 ounces of ice at once and then no more for hours.
There are lots of hotels in the vicinity of the Philadelphia airport. I would strongly encourage people, in light of this experience, to check out those other options. It may cost a few dollars more, but it will be well worth it.
A group of us came here with a class and we were instantly terrified. It took the staff a half an hour to just to get us our room keys. Then when we drove to our room (6:00 PM) we weren't allowed in because they were still cleaning it. After we got in our room we discovered that our TV would not turn off unless we unplugged it and our TV remote came with no batteries (utterly useless). Upon calling the front desk we discovered that to get extra towels and soap we had to walk up to the front office to get them. Shampoo was not complimentary! We had to pay $1.75 from a vending maching to get a travel size shampoo. We then had to endure loud noises outside of our room (and we are college students so that says something) as well as the ugliest looking bedsheets any of us had ever seen (if these bedsheets were our children we would give them up for adoption). The bathrooms didn't even have a lock on them. The cap of this is that on our door the sign "For Your Protection: When in room. Engage Deadboldt and Security Lock" was written make you you feel safe and sound.
This property was wonderful. The staff was great, very friendly and answered all my questions not being from the area. The rooms look great they are newly renovated. They had wireless internet service which was great not to many Motel 6's provide this. My room and the property was extremely clean I was a little surprised how great it was for the price I paid near Philadelphia. You want to stay here.
