The family that own this bed and breakfast, also own and operate gas stations. Even though the businesses are different, the family runs them exactly the same. Self Service! The building looks nice as your pulling up in the car. There's no one outside to greet you, or help with luggage. As your walking around the building, you'll see trash,... More

I stayed here with a family member for two nights. We each had our own room. This hotel was featured on the Hotel Impossible tv show. The owners were shown how to correct the issues with the hotel in order to bring it up to standards. Several of the rooms have been remodeled and are very nice, but the other... More

RUN!! DO NOT STAY HERE!! All bad, nothing good about this place. Your better off sleeping outside or in your car. No one was around when I checked in and I couldn't find my key. They claimed it would be in the lobby but WHAT LOBBY!!!

I took my son to JHU for college & wanted to stay somewhere we could hopefully get some input from the locals, like a B&B. Boy, was that a bad choice. We never saw a single person there, including on the check in. The place was no where near a 3-star hotel, with poop on the toilet seat & the... More

We needed to go to Baltimore at the last minute over the Memorial Holiday to drop our son off at JHU for Summer Session and this hotel is not only close to the Homewood Campus but was one of the few hotels left in the area to stay. However we were apprehensive to commit after reading reviews from others but... More

We arrived after a long bus trip to the most disgusting hotel I have ever seen. We were greeted by the "Manager" to collect the keys. Not feeling welcomed at all, the "lobby" on the left seemed nice but was a very false representation of the establishment. After lugging our bags up creaky stairs (with cockroaches on it! See pictures)... More

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
