How nice it is to have a large, wide front porch with comfortable seating, ceiling fans, something to drink. So rare in a hotel. You are right in the heart of a thriving town. You can walk to the drug store, restaurants, a movie theater, book shop, food stores, clothing (if you have forgotten something). Right next door to a church so you can hear the bells ringing. Ten minutes from Villanova University.
Once inside the room, it is quiet. WiFi is included. Comfortable bed. My only negative is the old-fashioned bed spread and blanket. Comforter covers are much cleaner as they are washed frequently.
The best of all is the restaurant in the hotel. You can eat in three different places: a fancy dining room, a bar, or on the porch. We ate in all three. Excellent food, good service. Breakfast is included.
The people behind the reception desk are very helpful and friendly. Bottled water is free.
Do stay here: you won't be disappointed.

We have been visiting this hotel since our wedding reception was held there some 20 years ago. Recently entire property underwent total restoration. It is an absolutely beautiful property but the historic charm remains. We stayed in a king size room for a get away weekend. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable with a nice flat screen tv. Our rate included breakfast which was basically extended continental in the Paramour bar area. Very attentive staff. We enjoyed a fantastic dinner at the Paramour restaurant located on premises. Overall great experience at the right price right in the heart of neat little Wayne, PA.

Great little place, big rooms, good price, friendly people and good food and service. can't fault them on anything. Takes the same amount of time from Philly airport to the Wayne as to downtown Philly. Enjoy local town charm, relax before the week starts.

I went to visit a friend of mine in PA, and he recommended this hotel. The hotel is very old; they still have the original dining menu from 1920s framed on their wall. Nonetheless, the room that I stayed in was very clean. The food in the hotel restaurant was excellent. The place was packed at dinner time. I feel I was getting a very good value for what I was paying.

If our travels bring us back to the Philadelphia area, this Hotel will be our destination. Great attentive service, from the front desk to the staff to the Paramour Restaurant. Our room was very nice. We had a bay window facing the front of the building, nice king sleigh bed which was very comfortable and the updated bathroom was unique, the walk in shower with the rain shower head was truly a pleasure. The decor was nice. Our room also had in room complimentary coffee. They have a complimentary breakfast, though we unfortunately didn't get to try it. There are cafe's and restaurants within walking distance as well as interesting shops. Our last day was topped off with an exceptional early lunch on their outdoor veranda.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that has a bay window facing the front of the building.

The Wayne Hotel is a little gem located smack in the centre of the main line right on route 30, or old Lancaster Avenue. A friend and I visited for one night when attending the Devon Horse Show right down the road in Devon. The lobby is lovely, has a continental feel that is neither too modern, nor dated. The patio that faces Lancaster Ave looks like a very nice spot to enjoy lunch or a cocktail. Next time we'll do just that.
Staff is appropriately dressed for business, and a few of them speak more than one language as I discovered with the French Mme who checked me in.
With a call in advance, we were able to check in early (1pm) The rooms are generously proportioned when compared to European standard.Ours comfortably supported a desk,chair, dresser, large tv, couch,a king bed, all with plenty of room to move around. The couch pulled out to a queen bed, and there was still room to get around everything. The bathroom was also quite large, with a nice shower, single sink, but with lots of counter space for everyone toiletries.
Our room was spotless, which is the most important thing about a room, if you ask me. There were plenty of lush towels, pillows, and the king bed and linens appeared new. Drapery was nice quality, carpet is in good shape, nice basic furniture and appointments. We found a working hair dryer in the bathroom, shampoo,conditioner, and soap. There was a sizeable well lit closet with hangers, complete with ironing board and iron which we used for several items during our stay. It's nice not to have to ask for these things and wait a half hour to have someone bring them up. You get a real room key, not one of those cards you can lose easily and which need to be demagnitised constantly. Old School. I like it.
While the view wasn't great (overlooking the aircon units on the building next door) we weren't there for a romantic balcony scene so it didn't really matter. What we did miss was a mini bar or some variety of small frige in which to store some water or other chilled beverage.There is an ice machine on the lower level for guest use but I find that a little tacky.It's too reminicent of the old Hojos motels all along rt 66 or the like. Ice on call from the front desk or room service would be a better option. Not having any bottled water in the room at no charge would also be a good idea.I realise they're trying to keep prices down and encourage people to visit the bar, but really,a bucket of ice and a bottle of water or at least a notecard on the nightstand advising the guest that these things are availible upon request would be a fine idea.
Just one other thing needs attention: Not only was there no full length mirror in the room; the only mirror availible was a waist high wall hung bathroom mirror. If you're not in the bathroom, you have no mirror to use while dressing. Not even a small decorative one by which to tie a tie or check your makeup. This is an oversight that nees to be addressed. A full length mirror attached to the inside of the closet door would be very useful.
Staff was efficient and friendly. Ample free parking. You cannot beat the price for this value even if you have to get your own ice. Ps. Call Main Line Taxi if you need to be shuttled about, they do a great job. We'll be back. Mini review of Paramour and other local establishments to come. Cheers

Room Tip: 410 does not have a great view, but is quiet.

This was a lovely hotel that was perfect for visiting Bryn Mawr or Haverford College. The room was charming and immaculate, and the service at the hotel was excellent. There's an elegant (if pricey) restaurant which we had dinner in, and the complimentary breakfast was way above the norm. The pastries tasted like they were right out of a Paris boulangerie, and there were "pain au chocolate", croissants, and other French treats. A lovely and very moderately priced hotel. An excellent value.
