The Brandywine River Hotel had a welcoming staff and our room was comfortable and quiet. It was very conveniently located, just a short distance from Longwood Gardens and very near to the Brandywine River Museum. Breakfast was adequate with many choices. The breakfast felt comfortable and relaxed. For dinner, we were able to get a reservation at a restaurant walking... More

Our room was on the ground floor. It was clean and roomy enough for one night. It does need updating and is worn around the edges, e.g., cracked tiles in the bath, saggy mattress, but it was fine for our needs and appropriately priced. It is the perfect location for visiting the local museums and countryside. The Brandywine Prime restaurant... More

Nice, comfortable hotel near Longwood Gardens and other local attractions at a good price. Rooms are clean and staff is helpful. Breakfast is continental and offers a varied, but limited choice of items.

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
