I had to use earplugs to sleep because of noises. The bathroom is the size of a small closet and the closet is big enough to have been a bathroom. I was not greeted in friendly manner upon arrival. What I thought was a light switch negatively affected the Dish TV. Never again.

While this place is not a luxury hotel by any means, it's clean and very reasonably priced. It's a bit dated, but they are doing renovations. The only problems are that the doors for the rooms are very hard to open and close, and the Dish Network TV system is awful. The do have XFINITY wifi, though, so if you...

The room was clean apart from the dead cricket in the closet area and the dead flies in the window. It was definitely a no-frills, roadside experience but was hassle-free. The staff were cheerful and helpful. It was exactly what I needed but I wouldn't recommend using it as a vacation stop.

The air conditioner was full of dust, the doors were dirty, the carpet was dingy, and there was an odd smell. No coffee pot, only one small garbage in bathroom, some broken drawers, and other drawers were dusty. The owners and housekeeper were nice.

Needed a place to crash for the night and this fit the bill. Air conditioner is located in the closet, which was weird and made cooling the room take longer than normal, but otherwise it was what was advertised.

We arrived early and the friendly staff was more than helpful with a super early checkin. Ac was super cool. Quiet atmosphere. Only downside is the u-turns on 202. Great food nearby. Clean rooms with new updates. Will definitely stay again and again.

I came to West Chester to visit the NC Wyeth House with no hotel/motel reservations and called the Sentinel Motel a few hours before I arrived. They had a room available at a affordable price. It was clean, quiet and the staff (owners?) were super nice. This is not a chain hotel; rather, it is an "old school" motel that...
