Re: [Philly] cheap valley forge hotels

where is the cheapest hotel in the area? I also noticed alot of the cheaper hotels have satellite tv which only gives me 20 channels and I can't watch the phillies.

The cheapest hotels are probably the ones that can be rented by the hour on Route 1 in Trevose, near Exit 351 of the PA Turnpike just outside Philly.

However, in that general vicinity there are other options such as a Comfort Inn, Quality Inn, Sleep Inn, Holiday Inn, etc.

A couple of those might come in right around $100 or slightly under for 2 adults.

If you stay in that area, you're about 20-25 minutes east of Valley Forge (5 turnpike exits).

Alot of people stay in that general area when visiting Sesame Place, Parx Casino, various places in Philly, etc. I-95, US-1, and the PA Turnpike are all closeby so it's somewhat easy to get around.

I believe the city of Philadelphia has some kind of new hotel tax I remember reading about. So, I don't think it's actually any cheaper to stay in the city limits.

I was looking for no more than 75. Plus I don't want a dump with bedbugs,etc.

As someone who has lived here practically my whole life, I'm inclined to think that there is practically zero chance of finding a hotel for under $75 in the Philadelphia metro area that isn't infested with various vermin AND/OR also being used for drug trafficking, prostitution, or other illicit activities.

But, give priceline.com a try. I set the price to a max of 75 and it pulled up 28 hotels in the Philly area. Most of them were in areas I wouldn't want to stay, but maybe you'll get lucky.

Good luck.
