The property was nice, fairly clean and the customer service for Pelican was exceptional. This looks like an older building that has been renovated to look pretty nice. The area around the property looked sketchy but I did not feel unsafe since there was a lot going on and people were mostly always around. It's just very inner city vibes that's all. There was a leak in the apartment from the air conditioning so I placed a jar to catch the water but obviously this has caused a permanent mildew smell in the apartment that is very prominent when you first walk in. I guess they'll get to it soon. I also had to find and fold towels since they were in the dryer but that wasn't an issue since I knew they had been cleaned. Walls are very thin so you will hear outside noise but that's to be expected in some older apartments. Overall it was close to everything we had planned and a great spot for the 2 days but parking is expensive. Best to Uber/Lyft.

I would absolutely stay here again if we had plans to return to Philly. This was the perfect place for our family of 5 a small dog. Perfect location and quiet, clean apartment. We parked our car at a lot just around the corner at an additional cost, but was convenient & easy. Furniture wasn't super comfy, but it was clean and had everything we needed and more. Outstanding location.

The apartment and building itself was great. Dealing with the company, on the other hand, was horrendous. They overcharged me and came back with several different fees they said were added to it. Even after that, their math was still wrong. I was on the phone for nearly an hour trying to get them to fix it. They also charge a 3.5% credit card fee that is listed only in fine print somewhere on the receipt in addition to the cleaning fee and resort fee that I didn’t see until after booking.
