I was able to get rooms at the Embassy Suites on Ben Franklin Parkway for well under $300 a night (of course I also booked the block a year and a half in advance.)  Not sure what the rate is now, but you also might check out bed and breakfasts in the area that will have lower prices (and cool backgrounds for your getting ready pics.)  Good luck!

Our hotel offered us a "hospitality sweet" for some guests to hang out in the time before the reception starts.  Maybe your hotel has something like this that would be larger than a single hotel room and be able to accomadate everyone?

Does the hotel have any rooms that can be connected to each other? That could be a good option.

If not try to find friends, or check with the location of the ceremony if thery have a room for you.

Where are you having your reception in Bensalem?  I think you can ask your ceremony site if they would allow you to get ready in the basement or if they have some room you could use?  You can always toss white sheets over any ugly stuff in the room and then put a full-length mirror up as the backdrop for photos?  If they don’t have anywhere for you at the ceremony site, bgcrispin is right, you can check out areas outside of Philly that might have bed and breakfasts.  I know Newtown and Langhorne and beautiful and historical, so they might have somewhere.  You can also try Manayunk, Media, or Chestnut Hill because they are closer to Philly.  Also, I would ask the ceremony and reception sites if they could recommend a place and everywhere that you call, ask them if they can recommend a place since you are not from the area.
