I see people complain about the military style atmosphere and accommodations. Maybe because, in a nutshell, it is. Mitags was opened in the 60's during the Vietnam War because of a shortage of Merchant Marine Officers during that time. It's a training facility. A way for ordinary people like myself to get the proper credentials to be a Merchant Marine.... More

I check-in to around 150 hotels each year, and my profession involves working with new personalities all week every week. This was the worst experience of 2015. When I approached the guy at the front desk and said hello he immediately looked at the floor and said: "I'm guessing you here (vs. "are here") to check in". Yes I replied... More

I attended the MASL Conference there and was greatly impressed by the facility and staff. The breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks served were fresh and delicious! The best lunch options that I've ever been given at a conference before. Very impressed!

A five minute shuttle ride to/from the hotel. Very nice staff. Nice variety of food. The servers were very kind, too. The shuttle drivers are very nice. They made it a very welcoming stay! The grounds are very nice to walk around. The wifi was great and there were many computer to use, if needed.

The staff is wonderful, the rooms are nice and clean, the pool is closed on the weekends, but otherwise is wonderful. The food is GREAT! There is always vegetarian selections and the buffets are really well stocked during Monday to Fridays when they are the busiest. I have no complaints about this facility and recommend it for people wanting to... More

This is located close to BWI airport, and they offer a free shuttle. They also have a free shuttle to the light rail station so getting into Baltimore City is easy. They even had a shuttle to the Amtrak station so getting into Washington, DC is only a 30min train ride. There is an extensive selection at meal times, and... More

Ok, so this is "kind of" a hotel. It seems more like a military barracks or a school in truth because of it's connection to the Maritime school and lots of military folks that are around. The rooms themselves are clean but VERY old school. Put it this way, there was a jack for dial up internet on the end... More

This place is a cross between staying in a prison and college dorm. The customer service is horrible ...the lady who checks you in is rude and not helpful. The food is a buffet (only one choice to eat) and you must eat your meal at a specific time or you don't eat. The rooms are dated and the bathrooms... More

This is a very good conference venue for conferences of up to 300 people. There are several conference rooms (large and small) and plenty of very good accommodation. A number of conferences can be held simultaneously. The rooms are very good and wireless internet service is excellent everywhere at the facility. The food is abundant and delicious.

Stayed as part of support staff for 2013 Inauguration. I admire the hotel portion here. It's not trying to be something it isn't. It's not the Ritz, it's temporary hotel-lodging for conference and studentts at the schools short term (month or so) courses. And it does it exceedingly well. Three night stay for me. I have never stayed in cleaner... More
