We recently spent 5 nights at the Inn at Mendenhall and had a wonderful stay. One of the desk clerks, a gentleman named Sandy, was very helpful with restaurant advice, directions around the area, and so forth. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. Our room was quite nice and had a refrigerator and microwave. The shower was fantastic.
Breakfast is complimentary and included the typical "make your own" waffles and pancakes as well as biscuits, sausage gravy, eggs (powdered scrambled eggs and the one breakfast offering which was definitely not very good), sausage, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, bagels, bread for toasting, English muffins, juice, coffee, and tea (with nice teas like Bigelow teabags and not just cheap, no-name bags).
There is a restaurant on-site (which serves dinner and Sunday brunch), but we did not eat there. I did look at the menu -- entrees were fairly expensive.
There is a lovely garden area off to the side of the front entrance -- several tables and chairs and hanging baskets of flowers around. It was a really nice space to sit and read. We had wine there one evening.
The hotel is on Route 52 and very convenient to Chadd's Ford, PA as well as Wilmington, DE. Winterthur, the historic home and gardens of the Dupont family, is less than 10 miles straight down the road from the hotel and Wilmington is only a few miles past that.
We would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again and definitely would recommend it to others.
