This hotel caters for long stay guests working for companies and also for shorter visits. I have frequented a number of times and it never fails to disappoint. A two bedroom suite has two en-suite bathrooms (at least ours did) and the living space was generous, with a pull out sofa bed too. The bed in the bedroom was huge... More

We had reserved a queen studio and were upgraded to a two-bedroom suite. It was wonderful. The suite was very clean, comfortable and very attractively appointed. The hotel was quiet and the staff was very professional. Would very definitely stay there again.

The hotel is in a great location for Columbia, MD. However, the furniture, carpet and beds need to be replaced due to just general wear and tear. Nice size living room and kitchenette. The breakfast served each morning was good.

Room was clean, bed comfortable, shower worked great. Also the price included free hot breakfast which was good and free wifi Internet . Only gripe was older style... More

I stayed here for several weeks recently. Some of the amenities were good (free laundry, fitness center, in-room kitchenette, complimentary USA today), but there were too many downsides of this hotel to consider staying again. Now for the down-sides: Breakfast. There were a lot of choices, but most tasted bland and watered down, especially the eggs. Cheese slices were put... More

Have been coming to this hotel for years but the change in ownership has not seen any recent upgrades. The only thing that I have seen is the painting of the exterior and one of the painters told me that the owners of this property told them not use up of the line good paint. I just hope that this...

There was roof construction blocking about 25% of the already severely limited parking. The rooms clearly used to be smoking rooms as the smell still lingers. The second floor hallways also constantly had a very weird smell, enhanced by the lack of air conditioning in the halls.

I spent five nights here on business in January. It was a pleasant stay; rooms have real kitchens, plenty of room to spread out and work, comfortable bedding, nice toiletries. There's complimentary breakfast with fresh fruit, several hot items, and very good coffee. There were yummy muffins that were kept in a warmer, so it was like taking them right... More
