I've been going to this place everytime I visit the East coast which is every 3 months. I love the staff since they know me already. They have been very accommodating and responsive to my needs. The place is indeed in dire need of renovation and improvements in its facility. But the warmth of the staff is something I will... More

We were there for a tournament at Ripken. Pros: The hotel is very close to the stadium which is nice, but there are definitely nicer places to stay for the same $. A/C worked great, pool was ok for the kids & there was a BBQ in the pool area. Cons: in need of renovations. The mini fridge is very... More

Stayed with a baseball team after other hotels couldn't accommodate number of families traveling. Hotel is in need of upgrading and remodeling but was not a dump. Hotel was clean and breakfast was okay with the exception of watery eggs. Pool was nice, table lounge chairs need to be replaced Staff were very accomodating. Their appears to be ongoing efforts...

Our team has been staying here for the last 3 years to play at Ripken baseball. Since our first trip the hotel has gone down hill. They closed the club, which is good because it brought a very bad element to the hotel. But now it appears they have long term residents living in the hotel. It is close the... More

I am a long time business traveler to this area that needs a room on consecutive nights. I previously stayed at a nearby hotel which was "okay" for my needs in that it had a bed, a fridge and microwave, in-room coffee maker, and a shower. It was, again, "okay" as my home away from home. That said, when I... More

The thing that irked me was the maid service. 2 of the 4 mornings the maid knocked on my door to see if we needed service. Can she... More

Don't bother trying to get any help at the front desk. The fuschia-haired girl is too busy smooching all over some guy in a white sports car, right there at the front door. She is also extremely rude, crooking her finger at guests like they are barn animals. The elevators smell like urine. Dirty dishes and bags of garbage stay... More

We were scheduled to stay at this hotel for a lacrosse tournament in Bel Air. The room was run down and dirty (hair in the sink and soap dish, liners laying next to the trash can instead of lining it, holes in the bed sheets). And we were charged a "discount" rate of $133. Maybe that is a kickback the... More
