We planned a trip to Longwood Gardens and wanted to stay overnight. When looking for hotels, I started with my rewards cards to see which hotels were available so that I could receive points. The Mendenhall Inn is part of Choice Rewards. I checked out the website and the place looked great, had a restaurant and lounge. I called to book, got a room with a King size bed. The person on the phone was very friendly & knowledgable. He said that there were 2 weddings booked there for Friday night. I expressed my concern about noisy wedding guests in the hallways at night. He assured me that the place will be quiet and told me that he would give me a room away from wedding party. The hotel is located 5 minutes away from Longwood Gardens & very close to all the attractions of the area. We arrived at the Inn Friday afternoon, pleasantly surprised with the location and the Inn. Upon check in we were handed 2 bottles of cold water (nice perk) as I always bring bottled water with me, this was a pleasant surprise and I have never stayed anywhere that this has happened. Room was beautiful, and away from any noise or wedding guests. Desk clerk suggested several place to eat on Route 1. He gave us the specials menu for the restaurant at the Inn. We ate at the Inn restaurant and the food was delicious. My husband ordered the Prime Rib special and said that it was the best prime rib he has EVER had. You could cut it with a butter knife and it melted in your mouth. I ordered the Crab Cakes which were also delicious. Dinner was great! The room was great! The service was great! The Inn was very clean. Breakfast in the a.m. was complimentary & they had everything that you could want. I would definitely stay here again and have already recommended the place to someone that wants to go to Longwood Gardens.
