“Two different stays in two different inns”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

We stayed 4 days in the Maryland inn and 2 nights in the Governor Calvert house. Two very different stays. My wife found the Maryland to be dated, old, and loud. TV would go on at 3 in the am 3 nights in a row . We think this was because of thin walls and strong remotes, not other worldly reasons as one guest was claiming to us. If anybody is walking nearby you hear it. The Calvert house room was much nicer, newer, quiet and less dated. Also the room was not as dark. The location is excellent and really can't be beat. 20+$ a day to park a car so we did not get one. Can walk everywhere in Historic Annapolis and take taxi to movie or mall. Many fun places to eat and drink within walking distance. No need for a car. Staff works hard and seem very busy. Rolls and coffee in the am are nice but will not pass for a breakfast for the average person. So I think the location trumps other issues, but in my opinion, stay at the Calvert over the Maryland. The location is great.

Dear Troy1:

Thank you for posting your feedback. I apologize that you were disappointed in the Maryland Inn. Our three buildings each have different “personalities,” so to speak and many of our guests do have personal preferences. I am glad that you enjoyed the Calvert House and you are absolutely correct about our location; we are truly in the middle of the Historic District and you can walk to everything.

Our Treaty of Paris restaurant, located in the Maryland Inn, is open daily at 7:00 and serves a great breakfast for those who need something more than a “grab and go.” We appreciate your patronage and your feedback and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

We had a fabulous stay over the 4th of July weekend at the Calvert House. It's historical, the location is fantastic, and the rooms are beautifully decorated (we had a view of the capital right outside our window). You are in walking distance of everything you could possibly want to see. They also serve breakfast pastries with tea & coffee each morning but if you want a bigger breakfast there are plenty of places to go nearby. It is also situated in a quieter part of town. The staff is very nice and very helpful.

We were pleasantly surprised at check in to receive an upgrade to one of their suites. The sweet turned out to be a rather oddly configured room, with the bed on one side of the bathroom in the sitting room on the other. That being said, the room had a nice view of the harbor end of Main Street. The room was clean, and a good value. The feather comforter on the queen bed was a nice touch.

Dear Dieter S:

Thank you for posting comments about your recent stay with us. I was very pleased that we were able to provide you with an upgrade upon arrival. The room you were assigned does have an odd layout, as you noted. The primary reason is due to the physical structure of that building, which has been continuously open since 1776.

I was pleased to see you enjoyed the room nonetheless, finding it to be both clean and a good value. We appreciate your business and look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Thank you.

We stayed at the Governor Calvert House over the Fourth of July weekend. After reading other reviews on this site, I asked the reservation person about her recommendations on what type of room to reserve. She was very helpful and explained the different types of lodging available and offered her opinion about which rooms were best for which groups of people. Based on her recommendation, we booked a historic queen room and were very satisfied. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed not having to use our car at all during our stay. Everything was within walking distance. We found the room to be charming and quite large. The four post bed was comfortable and we had no trouble with the wifi. We enjoyed the ice water and lemonade in the lobby. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who asked. We had considered staying in the Loews hotel and were glad that we made the choice we did.

We stayed at the Maryland Inn which is apart of the Historic Inns of Annapolis and we had a wonderful stay. The Inn was very quaint and the service was great. The location couldn't have been any better and is great for walking around Annapolis. We would definitely stay there again on a future trip to Annapolis.

For a hotel in downtown Annapolis it is a steal. Is it a 5 star hotel, no, but as the names states its historic, so it is a little dated but it does have wifi and nice water pressure. There is three separate buildings with valet parking and coffee is served every morning in the lobby area of each of the three hotels. They each are very unique due the history of each one. I have stayed in each and have never been disappointed.

We've never stayed in a historic hotel/inn before. This was like travelling back in time - the rooms were decorated period-appropriate, the floors were uneven....everything you would expect in a 200+ year old building. Staff was helpful, friendly and accommodating. Our valet, Zach was the BEST!! While driving us to our hotel, he gave us a mini-tour of the city and made several recommendations for taverns, restaurants, pubs, etc. His recommendations were spot on!!! This was a great weekend and we hope to return soon!
