..was never better than this. Are you staying within 50 miles of Ellicott City and not staying here? You are out of your mind. Treat yourself to a a real trip. Although the hotel is definitely Sgt Pepper'ish in decor, my wife and I never heard a Fab Four song the whole time during a recent long weekend there. Not... More

My husband and I wanted a quick local getaway and we'd heard about Ellicott City. We surfed the web and decided on the only hotel in town, the Obladi. The website photos were amazing so we thought we'd take a chance. Boy, are we glad we did! We knew we were dealing with kind business owners from our initial phone... More

It was our second visit to The Obladi, and catching up with T. and Zan was one of the highlights of our stay. As before, they made us feel so welcome. The small hotel is at the epicenter of Ellicott City, and you can walk everywhere. The hotel's decor is simple, yet imaginative and fun. And so very romantic. And... More

I took a spontaneous trip to Ellicott City, MD this past weekend, and stayed at The Obladi. I could not have had a more lovely visit. The hotel was WONDERFUL and the owners made me feel like family. This hotel is so beautifully renovated and the rooms are spectacular. Every detail has been addressed ahead of time, down to small... More

The Obladi is the only place to stay if you are anywhere near and around Ellicott City, MD. The accomodations are stellar and the owners (Zan & Ti) are such a pleasure to deal with. I stay there every time I come to Maryland and have started comparing hotels everywhere against the Obladi. It is not a resort, mind you!... More

What a wonderful experience. Why stay out of town when you can be right in the middle of all the best Ellicott City has to offer. Modern and inviting with plenty of space to relax or roam, on site facilities make this place seem like a second home. Stayed two nights in George's room - just fantastic with fireplace, soaking...

My sister and I stayed here to attend her son's wedding, along with most of the wedding party. The two women who own it put a lot of love, taste and talent (and money!) into renovating this old building. It's totally modern and comfortable, with some of the old character retained (2 of 4 rooms have exposed stone walls, there... More

The Obladi in Historic Ellicott City is a one of a kind hotel. What a great stay, modern and sophisticated interiors with the charm & warmth of a B&B on the outside! All packaged in a cool little artsy town in Howard County, Md. We have already booked another night for the winter. Obladi has only 4 rooms, which is... More

This guest house is one of the best I have ever stayed in. Beatles themed in a very tactful way. Saw all four rooms named after the individual Beatles. I stayed in the George room which had one of the best bathrooms I've ever experienced. Loved the bathtub. Ellicott city delightful. Good wine bar up the street as well as... More

My wife, I and friends threw a great Super Bowl Party at The Obladi. An elegant small hotel in historic Ellicott City was the perfect venue. We booked all four rooms in the newly opened, Beatles themed hotel. The Obladi Gallery provided a place for 24 people to watch the big game on a big screen while enjoying drinks and... More
