Only stayed one night. Needs a good overhaul. Awkward positioning of the lifts in the middle of the hotel. Buffet breakfast selection OK they had chocolate milk which made Mr13 happy. WOuld not want to stay long term. Walgreens handy(ish).

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 room was average. Needed a little more attention to detail with the cleaning. Basically ya get what ya pay for. Free breakfast in the restaurant was decent. The staff was friendly. 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

Our party was "given" rooms that had not been cleaned. One couple opened their door to find pizza boxes tossed around the room. Disorganized and generally unclean hotel. Pool was ghetto, with cracked concrete that had simply been painted over. There are several options at that same exit near Ripken Stadium, choose another place.

Cleanliness is everything in a hotel stay. My room was dirty. The towels had an odor, the "smoke-free room reeked of cigarettes, and there were pubic hairs in the sheets. That's right; dirty bedding. This room would have been horrible @ $50/night in the middle of nowhere, but at over. $110/night, the Clarion brand should be ashamed!

Had to continuously ask for room cleanings and enough towels for our party. Hallways were smoky and nothing seemed cleaned. Beds are very small doubles and not comfortable. The place is just old and needs an update.
