We recently stayed here for a soccer tournament last weekend and found the hotel through a special rate on Hotwire.com. Hotel was pretty clean for the most part, free wifi, free breakfast in the AM, outdoor pool (but was too cold outside to use), rooms overall were clean, but we found 2 beetles near our air conditioning unit, once when we got in the room and another two days later. Upon check-in at 3am, the person checking me in was nice, but unfamiliar with many things. Asked for extra sheets/blankets and was told she wasn't sure where they were kept, but then found some, wasn't sure if crib was available, but said it had to be put together and that I would have to call front desk in the morning, etc. She was basically able to check us in and that was it. Anything else we needed had to wait until the morning.
Housekeeping lady we had on 4th floor Saturday morning was SUPER NICE and got us everything we needed, although it was a little hard because she didn't speak any English. But she worked with me until we figured it out :) She was very nice!
We had a King bed room and had to bring an air mattress. If moving the chair to the side in the room, queen air mattress fits by window, but kind of a tight squeeze.
There is a shopping mall directly across the street, as well as an outdoor mini-mall type of location with places such as a grocery store, Big Lots, Subway, TCBY yogurt, Kohls, and other stores. All are within walking distance. There is a Starbucks about a quarter mile away, as well as a gas station with a Dunkin Donuts inside kiddie corner behind hotel, within walking distance. There are also other shopping malls, all within about a 15 minute ride.
Overall, good hotel for our purpose. But rates in Exton for most decent hotels are high, so recommend using something like Hotwire.com's rate where they tell you the Hotel Name AFTER you pay. There is a select few hotels that they mentioned could be chosen in the Exton area and all were over $159 p/night without using that special rate option. Ended up spending $111 p/night using the option where they name your hotel after purchase. I'm not a huge believer in that option, but I think it is a safe bet in the Exton, PA area.
