While traveling fron Clarksboro New Jersey, my husband and I had gone 20 miles when his truck quit in a busy road x'ing. traveling with a small dog. They do not allow pets, period; the mgmt was so kind and allowed us to stay with our pet. Rooms recently remodeled and the most comfortable bed I have slept in for years. Rooms have a nice modern decor, mgmt was great. Thank you for accomodating this weary traveler, her pet and her hubby

Room Tip: I prefer hotels over motels, if you do also I highly recommend this motel.

My wife and I were celebrating July 4 fireworks at Long-wood Gardens. I decided to book this last minute trip for us at Long-wood gardens. The hotel is comfortable and reasonably quiet if your room is away from the banquet facilities. The room was absolutely spotless. It was decorating with cute images on the walls and mirror space for both of our egos. Haha. For the three weeks that I stayed the staff was more than helpful with directions... The room we booked was clean and quiet. Front desk people were friendly. Only minor disappointment was lack of breakfast...House keeping was superior and in a timely manner. The only thing that didn't impress me was the very small shower stalls. A clean green and lush outer space with ample parking space. Comfortable rooms excellent location with flexible rates in this economy...

My wife and I are both in our 60s and are fussy people. We have traveled all over Europe and Asia. We were in the West Chester area last week (early May, 2009) for a family funeral and chose the Sentinel for four nights because of its reasonable pricing ($60 at that time). Most of the other motels in the area are over $100. West Chester is a very high-cost area.
Hard times… stay here and save more than enough to treat yourself at fancy local restaurants. We read the negative reviews but tried it and were very satisfied.. My wife would have moved us out in a minute if the place had not been OK. The young couple that manage the place speak very good English and are very accommodating. This is a classic 1940s motel that has many newly renovated rooms, large with satellite TV and fridge and microwave. Specify room #12 (no smoke smell - recently renovated). Beautiful trees out front, back your car up to the room door. The site is near everything, Brandywine Museum (Chadds Ford), 4 miles, Trader Joes (3 miles) restaurants, Starbucks etc. just up the road. You want to spend more and support the chains, pick one of them. You on a budget? stay in room #12 and ask the husband and wife managers for extra towels and a lesson in how to work the air. No pets, which suited us just fine.
