Mendenhall was incredible during the entire process. They provided so much bang for your buck and the entire staff was always so nice and helpful. Becky is fantastic. I can’t imagine how many emails I sent her over this process but she always responded quickly and helpfully and always had a smile and a laugh to share when we met. When it came to the day of, the Becky and staff made sure the ballroom was exactly as I had always dreamt it would be. Couldn’t have asked for a better wedding experience to keep a bride’s inner bridezilla away!

My husband and I got married on March 2 in the Grand Ballroom at Mendenhall. I loved that the complex has everything you need. With our ceremony we got a hotel room, flowers, cake, and all the table linens and catering under one roof. The pricing is very transparent and reasonable. I loved the grand ballroom with the staircase and the atrium, it really made for a great evening. We had about 150 guests and there was definitely room for more.
We got prime rib and chicken Marsala for our meals. The vegetarian option was a vegetable wellington which made it accommodating for vegan guests. The prime rib is enormous and all of the food is delicious, we got many compliments.
The weekend of our wedding there was a bus tour which used many of the rooms and the Mendenhall coordinated with Concordville Best Western Plus to provide rooms with a free shuttle for overflow guests. I have nothing but great things to say about the Mendenhall, it made planning easier for me and made for a great day for my husband and I.

The Mendenhall was a fantastic venue! We worked with Becky and she was great! I emailed her so many times and she was always so prompt in answering my questions and she is so nice to work with. Choosing the Mendenhall made wedding planning so much easier. Becky and her team took care of so many things! You really get so much for your money at this venue, on the day of the wedding we were able to just have fun and not worry about coordinating anything. We also had many out of town guests at our wedding and it was great to have a hotel venue where all the guests could stay. My husband and I are so happy with how our wedding turned out and that we choose Mendenhall Inn!

As a wedding photographer, the Mendenhall Inn is one of my favorite venues. Both banquet rooms also have separate rooms for cocktails/ceremonies. I adore the inclosed outdoor courtyard. The grounds are very good for photos, especially the train tracks!
This is an amazing venue to have any event! We have entertained many weddings at The Mendenhall Inn. They have two beautiful ballrooms to choose from and a few options for where you would like your ceremony. The staff goes above and beyond every single time! Food is delicious and always served with a smile. Highly recommended!
Of any venue we have worked with, Mendenhall Inn is hands down one of the most reliable, professional & fun places we have collaborated with. The wedding team is absolutely phenomenal, and our clients are always gushing about the warm atmosphere and kind demeanor of the staff. We love working with the Mendenhall team!
