The bed and sheets were clean, the bathroom was clean, the carpet was clean.
There was an Internet plug in the room which made it easy to get high speed on the laptop without wifi.
Front desk staff was courteous. Older style hotel with actual keys for the door locks, but nothing stale, moldy, or smelly. Easy access in and out of the room and hallways. Afternoon tea and cookies was a nice touch. Morning breakfast of bagels, cream cheese, and hard boiled eggs was decent.
Seasoned travelers might be picky, but if you want to get away southwest from Phillie (20 miles) or northwest of Delaware, this is a very nice place. Excellent American revolutionary history 1/2 mile away at Brandywine battleground and a couple of other sites. Two excellent restaurants and some interesting shops right in the same complex as the hotel.
