Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sam10301 Holiday Inn Bensalem, PA
The reason my hotel stay was so "memorable" was that the room i was given smelled quite strongly of mildew. The smell was clearly coming from the AC unit but since it was so hot outside not using the AC was not an option. I took out the screens from the wall unit and cleaned them in the shower but that only helped for a few minutes. The staff claimed the hotel was full so I did not have the option of changing rooms. Oh well, there are plenty of other IHG properties in the area so next time i will stay at one of those. I am so loyal to the program that I will just find another Holiday Inn or Crowne Plaza and stay at one of those in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gotribe Improved property
We stayed many times at this location when it was a Hampton. The only changes we saw was the maid service-excellent (last time we had problems). The room was clean and well-furnished. My husband said that he slept very well all three nights. Excellent bed and pillows. Also, the draperies were helpful, keeping out the sunlight. We had a quiet 2nd floor room. The staff was friendly and helpful with check-in and out. The exercise room was improved with the weights. The only problem we had was with the electronic keys. They didn't work well at the doors into the building. Once we had to go to the desk to have them reset or magnetized. The variety of food in the breakfast was good and the coffee tasted delicious and hot.
Will stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by skettel Good Location
Pool was operational. Had to change rooms as the sink in the bathroom was leaking and the bathroom was real outdated. It is apparent that some rooms still needs to be renovated. Good central location to Pennsylvania. Breakfast was not happening. The powdered eggs were horrible and there were no bagels. If you want breakfast outside, there is McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts and other restaurants within walking distance. Front desk did not acknowledge me as a platinum member. I had to remind them that I get a welcome package.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Suzen14 Guests at wedding
My husband and I stayed here for two nights when I was in a friend's wedding. The room was really comfortable and clean. Once the blinds were closed it was like a cave, we didn't know if it was day or night outside, which is great for sleeping. I liked that we had a suite with a separate seating area so I could hang out with girls in the wedding during down time and my husband could have the other room and TV to himself. The staff were kind and courteous and the breakfast had a lot of great variety. All in all, it was a great stay. Though I did think it was a little pricey for the location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by njfam neat and clean, friendly staff, convenient
This hotel has gone through a recent company change and renovation and has come out on top. Great value and very convenient to I-95 and the greater Philadelphia/Bucks County area. You won't regret anything about your stay. It's well managed and has good staff with a focus on customer satisfaction.

Stayed just one night for a class in the area. Imagine my surprise to find the class right behind the hotel at the University!! Front desk gave me info sheet on local restaurants, near casino, near huge mall, near Philly! Just great location--will stay again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by holstein Comfortable and great service, but disappointed with the closed pool
One of the reasons we chose this location/hotel was to use the pool, but we were disappointed on arrival that it was closed. It would have been helpful to know that in advance, as we would have stayed elsewhere.
But the room, service and breakfast were all exceptional.

As soon as I walked in a welcoming gentleman offered to help me with my bags because I was in pain. He also helped me out unloading. He was so friendly and helped me out and offered all the amities the hotel had to offer. Also the gentleman at the breakfast area, helped me out with making sure everything was ready for me because I had to leave early. He was also very funny man. I really recommend this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ecobee Nice quiet hotel in quiet neighborhood.
Nice little place. Used to be Hampton but changed franchise - same owners. Recently remodeled but still some signs of old hotel (like in stairwells.) Easy in/out, close to interstate, next to Bob Evans and Dunkin Donuts, and across from small shopping center with basic necessities. I travel a lot for business and this location was quite convenient for me. Room could use better HVAC control, and the remotes and TV's were difficult to use (and its' same service I have at home.) Overall a decent stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MelisaFL Exceptional staff!!
My family selected this property due to its location in Bensalem. As we were celebrating my nephew's wedding, we wanted to be all together at the same hotel. From the front desk manager, to housekeeping on the 3rd floor, and the breakfast staff, this hotel blew me away!!! The manager helped locate our car. The housekeeper went above and beyond. She helped our hard of hearing Aunt, cleaned the ice coffee spill outside the bride's room. I was late getting down for breakfast one morning, The kindess server went out of her way to help me satisfy my hunger. Overall, this hotel can be rated with many of the 5 star hotels I have stayed at. Do not hesitate to enjoy this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark148 Great Option for Philadelphia
Needed to stay at a reasonably priced hotel in Philadelphia, but could not find one. After exploring options close to Philly, I decided to stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Bensalem - turned out to be a great choice! Hotel is reasonably priced, looks quite new and is well maintained - staff is knowlegeable and friendly. Breakfast at the hotel is good and access to the Rte 95 to Philly could not be easier. Hotel was quiet so you can get a good night's sleep - I would definitely come back again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LithuanianMama1 Clean and Comfortable
My husband and I attended a wedding and stayed overnight at H.I. Express after the wedding. We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff were very nice and accommodating. Our room was clean and comfortable. Just a small side question, could those beds be any higher? The beds (2 dbls) were very comfortable but it was an olympic event for me to get into one. I'm of average height (5'6") but not very athletic. A small step stool would have helped but a chair in the room worked just as well. My husband had a good laugh.
On a more serious note, the reason I couldn't give a 5 star rating is regarding the breakfast. I know it's complimentary and I appreciated it very much. The "cold" or continental portion of the breakfast was delicious but you have got to stop offering or advertising "Hot" breakfast from 6 to 10am. Husband and I came to breakfast about 8. The only food in the hot pans were "scrambled powdered eggs." (I know powdered eggs when I see and taste them.) Also, there was no meat in a pan labeled "meat," and the pancake-making machine didn't work the whole time we were at breakfast. I would be happy with a good Continental Breakfast instead of a mediocre hot breakfast. Yes, I know it was free but it's the little things that push a rating up another star. P.S. The hostess/server who was keeping the eating area clean and the food supplied, so your guests didn't run out of anything, did a wonderful job. She could only work with what H.I. Express gave her but she did a terrific job running the kitchen area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Punt Just OK
Check-in experience was lousy - front desk person never looked at me and was distracted by other things - as if I wasn't there. Hotel didn't have the floor I requested - not that big a deal, but hard to understand as I made the request 4-5 days before checking in. Ice machine on my floor was out of service during my entire stay. TV in my room did not work well and stopped working completely - but situation was resolved. Too many smokers by rear doors - makes it so uncomfortable to come and go. Just wasn't a good experience - wasn't terrible, just could have been better.

I have stayed at this property 6 times in the last 8 weeks. I choose it over other properties because of the staff and updated rooms. This last stay was cut short by a family emergency. I checked in at 6 PM and out at 9 PM. Buy my other nigts have been good. Nice property.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Iancredible Brief Visit but felt like I was at Home
I recently came into town for business and was extremely pleased at the comfort level and ability to accomplish all my tasks without any interruptions from other hotel "residents", we've all been there. Super long day, and then to have an even longer night because your new "neighbors" blast the tv and "dance" all night.
I look forward to my next visit in the area so I can stay at this property again.
Only negative I can give them, check in process. It was slow. 3 people working but checking in 1 person at a time. No priority recognition at checkin

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joey99 Working out the kinks on breakfast
Room was fine. Hotel is recently upgraded. Convenient location. Still working out the bugs on the breakfast offerings, though. Pancake "machine" produces rubbery, flavorless discs. Eggs / Omelette things were cold. Breakfast staff 'appearance' left a bit to be desired.
Very nice room and property, though.
