We had already stayed at the Country Inn and Suites in Atlantic City, New Jersey area. This was a wonderful stay. We expected the same quality, but were disappointed with this hotel. The walls and floors are very thin and you can hear everything. The first night, we stayed on the 2nd floor. We could hear every footstep above us. The people above had small children that were jumping off the bed. It sounded like thunder. I complained to the desk clerk and they had the couple quite the children. They moved us the next day onto the 3rd floor. It was quite after that. We stayed a total of 3 nights.
They do not have a swimming pool, but for the price, they really should have one.
I brought a serious safety violation to the attention of the desk staff. Their elevator safety inspection certificate had expired in June 2013. They were 5 weeks in violation. The staff was oblivious about the certificate. Hopefully, they have called the Maryland Division of Safety Inspection Unit.
They had a shuttle to the metro station. But, it is very close about 10 minute walk. The neighborhood is very safe.
The hotel is clean, and the rooms are spacious. They have a great breakfast buffet, with omelets, potatoes, sausage, waffles, the normal continental fare and Yes!! we even had bacon!!
The front counter staff makes fresh baked cookies which were a real hit with the kids. They went out of their way to bake my children a batch of chocolate chip jumbo cookies. Real nice touch.
I won't stay there again, but it wasn't horrible, with the exception of the 1st night.
