“"Tranquility"”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Need to get away from all the noise and havoc of everyday life? This is the place to be. This place is close to Longwood Gardens, Brandywine Battlefied Museums and Antique Shops. Look forward to going back again.

Room Tip: if you are looking to get away and need relaxation, then this is the place to be at.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. It is located within walking distance of the Brandywine River Museum and several restaurants and shops. the hotel is a modest size but has the feel of a bed and breakfast

My friends and I were traveling to Winterthur to see the Downton Abbey clothing and tour the museum. We thought we would stay close to the museum to eliminate the thirty Mike drive from King of Prussia mall where we planned to shop the next day. That was a mistake. This hotel is old, smells musty, and is not comfortable at all. We took a King Fireside Jacuzzi Suite since there were three of us, so I used the pull out bed and my friends took the king bed. The King bed had a lumpy comforter and a sagging middle. The pull out had a dirty mattress pad cover, and wasn't much better than sleeping on the floor. The air conditioner unit ran all night, rumbling and coughing. Terrible. Stay in King of Prussia where the hotels are clean and new. It's only a short drive in the morning to Winterthur anyway.

Room Tip: There isn't one that we could see...

This was our second stay at this pleasant small motel. We have found it clean, quiet and comfortable each time. It is a nice change from the big chains, if, for nothing else, the real china at the breakfast area.
If we again visit the area to go to Longwood Gardens, etc., we will again stay here.

As noted elsewhere, the room as clean, quiet, a little short on outlets, and the opposite of trendy. The staff was AMAZING, especially Corrine (sp?) at the front desk. The nearby restaurants were good. The only real negative I have is outside the hotel's control - there were no sidewalks, so taking an after-dinner stroll or pre-breakfast run was challenging.

Nice small 40 room hotel with a homey feel. Clean and in good working order despite being a little outdated. Our King suite was spacious and had all we needed. Great restaurant in walking distance as well. Staff was polite but not overly welcoming, but that was okay as when we arrived we were tired and didn't need any perky welcomes:)

It is not the Ritz but then again neither is the price. The room was quiet and clean. The bed in our suite was quite large though the TV was not visible from the bed. The free wifi connection was a snap. The Brandywine Prime restaurant is a short stroll down the hill and features a superb menu and well made cocktails. The hotel keeps the continental breakfast open late on weekends which is a real plus. The front desk staff was most helpful; even came to the room to help me navigate the mysteries of Direct TV.
