We stayed here unexpectedly after a motor vehicle accident. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the room was spotless and comfortable. It's an older building, and the owners maintain it well. The next morning the owner drove us to the hospital, since our vehicle was out of commission, and over the next week helped us in various ways. The... More

I ended up here because every single motel in Wawa was booked solid last night, and this place was the only one with a room. It was one of their "apartments" in the basement. The owners were very friendly and helpful, especially the grandson who showed me my room... which is why this is 2 stars instead of 1. But... More

I ended up in Wawa because of a car breakdown and went to the Bristol because it was cheap. The rooms had everything we could need. They're clean, got a nice TV and comfy beds. The owners helped us out multiple times. They let us stay late and even drove us to the bus stop with our boxed up bikes.... More

This older hotel, is a great place to stay, and I like it's small size charm! Clean, big rooms, large screen tv, and friendly staff! Our room was very clean, glad it is non-smoking! Good price, and we had a nice evening walk! Food close to restaurant! Will stay here again.

I have found the Bristol Hotel to be a good value for a smaller market town like Wawa....they have a variety of rooms to suit your particular needs...however...they are serious about not smoking anything in your rooms...so if you want to break rules...you'll pay for it........good for non smokers.....staff is extremely pleasant and accommodating....and a spa tub is available to...

We stayed in Wawa in September without a reservation. The first motel down the street was full. Our room was small but clean and the staff was wonderful. Bonnie was very friendly and helpful. Coffee and muffins in the morning as well. We stayed in a lot of "mom & pop" motels over two months and the Bristol was a... More

Be careful at the Bristol..you may be in danger of receiving extra charges on your credit card after you leave. It would certainly be expected to have to pay for "extra room cleaning"..in this case an extra $100.charge!..($13 more than the room cost per night)..if you happened to leave the room in a big mess after some wild party had...

Extortion customer. . I discussed this matter with you over the phone when you called for a refund. You decided to publish incorrect information and I want to correct it. When you arrived at the front desk I advised you that this was a smoke free building and that you would have to smoke outside. You signed the registration card... More

Three of us stayed in two rooms, at different ends of the motel the last Sunday in August 2014. Two of us, in different rooms have bed bug bites. The place was clean and tidy and we would not have suspected this. I sent a message by email to the motel and you would think that they would at least... More
