Plumbing is awful. The shower foes from normal & you have to wait and set it just “so”… per their instructions.. then in middle of our shower goes from ok to burning hot or freezing cold without touching any taps… on top of that the a/c leaked all over carpeted floor and they could not stop it so put towels under still and wet carpet for 2 days before we left. No coffee make or such so you have to go a few blocks to get coffee. Bed uncomfortable and extra a/c box was put in with duct tape that kept peeling off. Manager who tried to help was nice but the need a plumbing remodel.

I was so excited to stay in a historic building in lovely Newtown!! Imagine my disappointment when the room that I had reserved was not available and the owner did not contact me in advance. The room that I was given overlooked the parking lot and dumpsters, which was the exact opposite of what I had booked. Furthermore, this terrible room was advertised on the web site at a lower rate, however, the owner refused to honor it. She charged me the rate for the room that I had originally booked. I DIDN'T STAY IN THAT ROOM! She said that the web site was outdated and that the rates were wrong. Not my problem. I adore visiting Newtown and am there several times a year to visit family. Without a doubt, I will NEVER stay at The Brick again.

Bait and switch both price and room. Was had on both of them. Don't even believe your confirmation. Make sure you look at the room with your own eyes Don't believe ANYTHING that management tells you over the phone because it will all change when you get there.

Quick two night visit to Sesame Place and Newtown. Read negative reviews but thought written by folks who don’t get the fun of staying at historic B&B’s. I was correct. Brick Hotel is a funky old building in a town full of history. Ground floor is a restaurant (Rocco’s) which serves good food and stays busy. Restaurant front desk is where keys to rooms are left for guests. Ladies at front desk do not assist except to give a card with owner’s number should questions arise. Otherwise the keys are available on the desk by 3:00pm check in time. Grab keys and head up to your room. We stayed in third floor “Wally Room-302”. Figured best to put a floor between us and restaurant. Good idea as the room was quiet. Large room with small flatscreen TV, private bathroom with good level of hot water for an old house, Queen sized comfortable bed and air conditioning that took a bit of adjustment to keep from being too cold. No fridge in room but was able to get ice at bar in the restaurant. Second day we bought ice and a bucket to keep beverages cool. Lack of ice machine does present an issue that as indicated can be addressed. The restaurant valet parking lot is also for the hotel (at no charge). Yes, front door of restaurant is never locked as a review mentioned, however each room has it’s own lock and this area is very safe. We met owner who gave the unique history of the hotel. She also talked about some of the rooms (second floor) which people have claimed are haunted. We heard no unexplained noises or saw anything weird. No breakfast provided, but many options in the very walkable town for meals. We had a very comfortable stay. Not for guests who cannot climb stairs or need room service. If you want to soak in the history, this is a good pick.

this hotel is in a great location . Newtown is a delightful and charming gem . The charm ends upon entering your room at the Brick Hotel. What looked like mold was everywhere, bathroom baseboards, tile floor/grout, in the window AC unit. Wallpaper peeling off the walls. The windows are likely original which is fitting but they don’t close . Gaps in windows let the bugs in. Contrary to hotel description , there is no front desk and no staff so the front door of the Inn is left unlocked all night . On our last night , we were the only car in the parking lot so it felt abandoned. The area seems safe but we felt vulnerable . Anyone can just walk in off the street . The restaurant that leases space on the ground floor is where you get your key but they are not hotel staff . There was no staff on site when we left the key .

I learned that this place was on an episode of Hotel Hell AFTER I had already stayed there, and let me say if I'd seen the episode beforehand we would have chosen another hotel. Dirty place, wasn't any better than the episode I watched. there are other hotels in the area. try them out.

Been there last year... Room very dirty, it smells moody and every dust. Bedlinen more grey and yellow, plus spots. Tried the kitchen, but the firdt try was bad, the second one worse. Everything was terrible but the lady, guess Indian herritage was crying, loud and very unpolide ! Like the city of Newtown very much. Dose have friends there but I,ll never stay or eat in this hotel or restaurant again.

This is a really great historic hotel. The customer service was immaculate and the valet parking accommodated me without flaw. Would highly recommend if you’re in the Bucks County area. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here.

I simply love the rustic, old fashion atmosphere of The Brick Hotel located in Newtown, PA. Everything from the carpet, to the railings brings me back to the days when I was a little girl growing up in Montana. First, the friendly valet greeted me and offered to carry my bag up to my room (they were dressed very nice)! Then I was able to go to my nieces wedding with the comfort of knowing I had warm accommodations waiting for me. There are plenty of places in town to get breakfast and the weather was nice so I enjoyed the walk. I definitely recommend this lovely place for accommodations in Newtown area.
