The hotel is really old and shows it. Musty smells, worn furniture, peeling paint, noisy air conditioner etc. The check-in staff was friendly, but the cleaning staff wasn't.. The breakfast was free, and it was worth every penny! (at least the coffee and OJ were of acceptable quality) You can do a lot better for the same money.

This is an old property that is in need of updating again. In the Nineteen sixties and seventies, It was a "Quality Inn" called the "El Capitan." Many Wilmingtonians referred to it as the "El CRAPitan." It has earned the name again. The room quality is uneven to say the least. We stayed there twice in July. The first room... More

I was attending our annual Disabled American Veterans Convention. Bally's staff went out of their way to make sure all of our needs were met, especially our handicapped veterans. My room was outstanding, had a lovely view of the "Strip". Overall we had a successful conference. KUDOS to Bally's

Oops! Wrong property. We would have welcomed you here at the Brandywine Valley Inn Best Western, however, you did not stay with us. Be sure to double check your review and give Bally's the kudos they deserve! Best regards, Phyllis T. Guest Relations Manager More

This place is caught in a 1970's time warp and nothing has been updated since that point in time. Bring your leisure suit and forget any modern devices like phones, IPads, or laptops as they won't work here.

Our property does have a classic layout however, it is the only one of it's kind in the area with a central, outdoor pool and hot tub!We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced during your stay.

I stayed at this hotel for a total of 5 weeks over a 12 month period whilst working on a project for my UK based company. I was working in Wilmington but did not want to stay in town. This hotel is a short easy drive from town with plenty of things close to the hotel. Rooms a little dated... More

Guest rooms need to be renovated. Feels like it has lacked proper maintenance. We had to be moved to a second room due to a air conditioner leak. Had been upgraded to a Business room but the only difference between rooms seemed to be the addition of a second chair.

Rooms were furnished decently - Refrig and TV worked fine - rooms themselves obsolete - wallpaper peeling in places and wall seemed water damaged in past - Pool was too cold - room still functioned well and there were no problems but the place itself was nowhere near Best Western Standards - more like Super 8 or Econolodge

Hello Marckd1976, As the pool is outdoors, it's temperature is controlled solely by the chill of the wind and the warm of the sun. The hot tub however, gets nice and hot to warm you back up!

Hello NYTom64, We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. It is unfortunate that you missed the eggs during your stay, they are quite popular during breakfast. No more are made in the last half hour if they run out. So be sure to get them while they are hot! See you next time! Best regards, Phyllis T.... More

There aren't a lot of choices in the North Wilmington area, and the Best Western Plus gave a decent room at a good price. Room had microwave, fridge, and color bubblejet printer. Bed was fine, and TV service was more channels than many hotels offer. Layout reminded me of a motel/motor inn, so that was a bit of a turn-off... More

I attended a family funeral in July and stayed at this hotel for two nights. The people at the front desk were very helpful and accommodating. The provided breakfast was just okay, and they kept running out of coffee--breakfast person was short-tempered. When I got back to my home in Virginia later on the day I checked out, I immediately...
