I booked this hotel on booking.com. Upon reading the reviews sorry to say we drove right passed it and decided to stay near the inner harbor. The area around the hotel looked very run down.i don't have much to say about the staff or service. Maybe next time ?

I've stayed several times previously at the Mt. Vernon Hotel and had enjoyed the great location, the relative cost to quality ratio and a nice morning breakfast. When we arrived for this stay, our reserved room with 2 queen beds wasn't available, so they put us in 2 side by side rooms with double beds. These rooms had old, run... More

I intended on staying here for one night from 7/11/14 to 7/12/14 on a family trip. The reviews and photos seemed decent for one night so we booked through hotels.com since the price was reasonable. Boy do we regret it! The whole hotel smelled musty and our room smelled like smoke. Not sure if we got an exceptionally bad room... More

Great location! Rooms dated, but served the purpose! Desk warped and peeling, chairs stained. Electric outlet covers were missing. We had free breakfast tickets. Hot breakfast was grits, home fries, eggs, and french toast. Yogurt and bagels/toast available too. Only coffee, cranberry juice and water (OJ was out of order). We enjoyed the free wifi. The most disappointing and upsetting... More

Thank you for your review of the Mount Vernon Hotel Baltimore. I apologize for the lack of communication by the front desk about the street parking. The signage can be confusing, that is why they list it as 10 minute parking. The city doesn't tow vehicles however that are parked legally for less than that amount. We also have paid... More

I stayed at the Mount Vernon Hotel for several days with my older children. Very impressed for the money. Walking distance to the ballpark. And just an hour train ride to Washington DC. There are several bars and restaurants within walking distance.

I picked this hotel basically for the location, even though there are many mixed reviews. We stayed at the Mount Vernon Hotel in May while attending the Preakness weekend events. We arrived and the parking garage was FULL. One of the reasons I choose this hotel is b/c it had attached parking. Someone made the comment on the street that... More

I've been here in a business trip. The hotel is generally old and slightly dirty. A service is satisfactory. A receptionist mixed me with other guest and charged incorrectly. There was no iron in the room. However, all bugs were fixed. They have no output adapters for European plugs (difficult to buy in Baltimore). A breakfast was bad, with no... More
