Inn at Mendenhall, an Ascend Collection Hotel

Reviewed 28 August 2013

Enroute to a wedding in N.J., I booked a 2-nite stay with a guaranteed late arrival at The Inn at Mendenhall because in searching, it's close to the Longwood Gardens (site of my side trip in the journey) and looked comfortable. Due to a (borrowed) misguided GPS that was programmed to avoid toll roads and highways (why??!?!?!), and very stormy weather, it was quite late...ah quite early in the wee hours of the morning by the time I arrived. And I was so tired, I could barely see... The Inn's host at the time of my arrival could not have been nicer, more helpful or more welcoming. He helped me get luggage out of my car, onto a cart and then deposited in my room. Once in my night clothes, I toddled to bed and sank into total comfort. Upon waking later, the first morning there, I discovered my room to be very nice, very comfortable and clean and roomy. Everything about my stay at The Inn at Mendenhall was superlative ~ and I highly recommend this as THE place to stay if you're in the Brandywine Valley...convenient, safe, excellent, comfortable, clean....superlative!!

Our room was clean, bed very comfortable. It was quiet on a Thursday night. The breakfast is fast food-like, but the coffee was good and there were plenty of choices including yogurt, scrambled eggs and some fruit. The complimentary breakfast, water and newspaper were a nice touch. The Inn seems to do a lot of wedding receptions so a weekend stay could have a very different feel. We found it quiet. It is convenient to the Brandywine attractions and easy to get to Wilmington if traveling by car.

We stayed here two nights for a wedding reception. The accommodations were all we could have asked for: clean and comfortable room, nice ammenities, country atmosphere, and a great wedding facility. The breakfast was more than adequate with a wide selection hot and cold offerings in food and beverage. The business area allowed me to print travel info although one computer was being persnickety and not cooperating. The lobby was very inviting. Overall, I felt very much at home here.

Room Tip: The rooms are in two separate buildings...the main building with the lobby and the "annex"...

The Inn is a delight! The location, right in the middle of the Brandywine Valley, makes it easy to get to anyplace you want. The rooms were clean. The staff was professional and most helpful.
The breakfast was complete. You couldn't ask for much more. The on-site restaurant also had very good food at a reasonable price. If you plan on coming up or down this way, this is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: I like the rooms in the main building as opposed to the ones on the restaurant side that overlook a...

Mendenhall Inn is idyllic, serene, and beautiful.
In Brandywine with a multitude of museums, gardens, antique stores, and restaurants.
Stepping back to the colonial times.
Known for having wedding receptions but would stay for the peace and beauty of windy roads, majestic trees, gardens, and chirping birds.
Great for a weekend get away - 50 minutes from Philly.
After a few nights, am very rested and refreshed.

Stayed one night for a wedding.
Very nice staff, room and food. Nice setting off of a country road near Longwood Gardens. Grand Ballroom was very well appointed, and the food was good, as was the wait staff. An all-around enjoyable stay

This is an older hotel that is in the Brandywine Valley close to many attractions. It is VERY clean, quiet (was built soundly) and the housekeeping staff very friendly. The front desk staff however during the week in the evenings needs lessons in hospitality. Breakfast the usual for a chain hotel but adequate. They're having trouble with their internet and it often loses signal in the evening. Their "business center" is a joke with 2 machines running Windows XP that have great difficulty connecting to the internet and if you're thinking about printing off your boarding pass forget it.
