Helpful front desk staff, close to Longwood Gardens and other Brandywine attractions. Loved that it was walking distance to several restaurants. Nice continental breakfast included. Great value for a really clean, comfortable bed. Would go back again!

First the basics: The hotel is very dated and the rooms particularly musty smelling, certainly not a 3 star hotel as advertised and certainly not worth the price. But even more noteworthy than the disappointing conditions was the extremely poor customer service. The manager Lisa was rude and unhelpful. We were forced into a change in plans (ultimately a medical... More

I am very sorry you were not happy with my response as manager, you made no mention of any kind telling me it was a medical emergency. I was told that your children had changed their plans so they would not be staying the extra night. You had told me that you were going to write this nasty review, we... More

This is a smaller facility extremely close to Longwood Gardens and the Brandywine Museum. It had everything that we needed for a one night stay. The room was comfortable and had a nice shower. They also offered a complimentary breakfast, although rather limited, it served our needs. The hotel, plus gardens package, was a real value and enabled us to... More

Location is perfect for Longwood Gardens, Winterthur, and other Brandywine Valley attractions. It's close to a few restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable other than the temperature -- it was too warm even with the thermostat turned way down. Breakfast buffet is adequate but not outstanding. Easy parking and access.

The Brandywine River Hotel is the best place to stay in the Brandywine River area. It is close to all of the wonderful gardens and museums - Longwood, Brandywine and Winterthur.It is in the backyard of all the best places to eat - Hanks, Felline's.

Nice clean hotel that's very convenient to the Gardens. It is an older property with peeling wallpaper, stains on the ceiling and outdated furnishings - but was very clean. We didn't find the staff pleasant or helpful - quite the opposite. Breakfast during the week is over at 9:00. If you miss it there is nothing available. There are no... More

Lovely place. A charming breakfast room--tablecloths, cloth napkins, etc.it was wonderful to have our dog with us! A little hard to find: you follow a long driveway up the hill away from the road after you see the brown hotel sign.
