This was an unplanned stay for my traveling companion and me. Our rental car died in Chadds Ford so we were stuck there for the night. We found the Sentinel on our cell phone and were so happy to find a cool, clean room with WIFi at the end of a disappointing day. The innkeepers were very nice to us,... More

I almost never leave reviews but only do when the place really really deserves it. The management is awesome! Its a small property so they know you at a personal level, always nice and asking how your stay is going. I had absolutely NO COMPLAINTS! House keeping is always alert, if you have any type of problem (I did not)... More

We needed an inexpensive, clean place to spend a night and change into different clothes for an event. This motel satisfied those requirements. Clean, quiet, freshly painted and updated bathroom. We were surprised to find a micro and fridge. Realize the prize is a bargain and if you expect fancy this isn't it. Yes the t.v. is not a brand... More

We stayed there last night. The room was clean and comfortable. It's dated but when everyone else in the area is double the money it's a great value. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. We had read the earlier reviews but decided to try it anyway. Quiet, comfortable,clean easy to get to and a great value. We travel through... More

We stayed here on our overnight trip to Longwood Gardens. A perfect place to settle in for the night. Very clean rooms and cozy beds. I was pleasantly surprised that, despite being just off the road, I didn't hear any traffic throughout the night. We will absolutely stay here again on our next road trip.

I look for pricing above all else so I expect to get what I pay for...the rate was cheap at that moment so I snagged it real quick. I am actually glad I chose to stay here because for one thing, without realizing it, was that it was in a familiar area and down the street from a lot of... More

I came in to West Chester for a wedding – everything else had been booked up nearby, but luckily I found the Sentinel Motel via Orbitz. From the pictures, I pretty much knew what to expect – and everything lived up to expectations. It appears to be family run, by a nice group of people...and it seems that they've done... More

While the room proved roomy and the location was exactly where we needed to be for the night, I'm not sure we'd do this one again. Motel is very rundown, although there is renovation in progress. The renovation work is shoddy at best from what we saw in our room. The parking lot is dark and tough to maneuver at... More

I began my stay at Sentinel last year in April and stayed through December. In fact I submitted a review prior to my leaving the area, but was surprised to not see it. As such, I am providing an additional retrospective review. I was lucky enough to stay in this motel's two bedroom apt and it suited my needs perfectly.... More

Great place to stay a night on a budget! I thought Sentinel Motel was a wonderful place to stay! I don't understand any of the negative comments. The owner was so nice to me and made me feel so welcome. He said I was his first booking through Expedia when I talked to him on the phone and he even... More
