I picked this hotel because it was 3 blocks from the Amtrak train station. It's right next to the University of Baltimore and the second closest hotel to Johns Hopkins University (about a 5 min cab ride away -- or you can take the JHMI shuttle from Penn Station). Abacrombie has free parking next to the building. It's also very... More

I reserved the room because of the thought bed and breakfast it would be swanky and nice for my birthday weekend/valentines day. Oh Dear i was in for a rude awakening, when arriving there is no one there to greet you the keys are left downstairs with your name on them, get to the room and the nightmare began. the... More

As a fan of Hotel Impossible, how could I not stay? Knew exactly what to look for as well. Only issue was the filter on the air con; had to clean it, big deal. Paid for a twin bed and they gave me a neat African hunter theme room in corner with a queen size. Come on, that's proper service.... More

No old charm, nor nostalgic past… Just an unkempt, cheap joint. Apparently, this hotel was good in a remote past; not anymore. The place needs major refurbishing. I am amazed they are still functioning. I guess people coming to MICA or UB need a place just across the street. I spent one night in this place, but I could not... More

I knew this place wouldn't be great from reading the reviews but I also had the notion that people who review hotels were generally on the picky side with a tendency to make mountains out of molehills. For this I paid the price. The price of enduring itchy sheets, tiny rough towels, half a roll of toilet paper which was... More

Do NOT stay at this place! When we drove into the parking lot, rats scattered. There was NO ONE there to greet us or check us in (we had been given an electronic code for the front door lock.) The place's vibe is just this side of the Bates Motel in Hitchock's "Psycho". There was not staff around at all,... More

Run as fast as you can if you are considering this hotel. We felt like since we went through Expedia, we were given the worst room in the property. The others we were able to view upon our departure were much closer to the rooms that were displayed on the video tour. Old furniture, old decor, old TV, no air... More

When arriving to the B&B we could not get in the building because the doors were locked. We called the number on the door only to get an answer an hour later. We were then td someone would be down to let us in in about 30/45 mins. It was 1:30am and the only thing we wanted to do was... More

Horrendous. We spent one night there last night. We went to see a concert @ Meyerhoff and it was nice & cool outside, about 70. BUT when we got into our room, it was 80 degrees with humidity & they had a large white fan blowing on the table next to the bed (???). I went to use the bathroom... More
