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

It' s no wonder that the Travel Channel 's Hotel Impossible program visited this B and B to help them save themselves. Apparently, the owners decided to ignore all the good advice they received. There is no security at all on your room key. All room keys sit in an unopened envelope on a hall table.No one greets you. You... 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

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
