“Very NICE and convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is my third time staying here and will probably become my "home away from home" whenever I return to my former home town. Had a two-bedroom suite which gave everyone privacy and yet had a nice common area to gather together. Great location next to highways but away from the city congestion and noise. The hot breakfast is better than normal and they offer evening snacks (which we never were there for). This is an older establishment under new ownership/management and I can see lots of improvements over the previous chain ownership. Loved the full-sized kitchen. The staff was very efficient and friendly. The lobby, outside and our room were all well taken care of.

Was in town for a family reunion in early August . This hotel was a pretty good pick. It's not brand spanking new, but it's still pretty nice. The front desk folks were nice. When we checked in, they were serving food along with beer and wine. Nothing extravagant, but still good. They offered breakfast as well. Had free Wi-fi also. I would stay here again.

The lobby area was neat and clean but the room was less than impressive. Old, dirty carpets, old furniture, bathroom average and not that clean. And, I was on the first level so throughout the night I had someone on the 2nd floor walking around and it was hard to sleep. The parking is easy but my room was facing a back area and I felt a bit uneasy about being so close to the ground where someone could walk back there. I definately would give this 2 stars or maybe 2.5 at best

We stayed at this hotel on our way home from Charleston S.C. We booked it thru hotwire and didn't have any idea what we were going to get. We were pleasantly surprised. Our room was very large with a nice fully stocked (plates, glasses etc.) kitchen area with a full size fridge and microwave.
The bath room was also nice and large. The whole place was spotless. Even the grounds were kept very beautiful. The pool looked nice, but it was raining the whole time we were there. I might have given this place a 4 star, but it really was much nicer than the typical Hotel/motel.

My grandson and I took a trip to Baltimore in August 2013. The rooms there were too expensive for me to be able to afford a two night stay but through Living Social I was able to acquire a room at this very pleasant establishment.

Not only was there a small kitchen with a near oven/stove, here was fridge, microwave and a dishwasher. Never did we eat on paper, from plastic, or drink from Styrofoam while in our room.

The staff was friendly, the room was clean and comfortable and the amenities were abundant. We swam in the outdoor pool and played basketball while our more savvy neighbors grilled their food on the oversized gas grills provided in the courtyard.

We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back.

I booked a room here for a last minute weekend getaway. I was pleasantly surprised how clean our room was. Full sized fridge in the kitchen was nice. The facility is severely outdated, but if you’re looking for a place to just shower and sleep I would recommend it. The staff was very friendly and was able to direct us to various restaurants within a 10 minute drive.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near the elevator!

We stayed here for a combined trip to Washington, D.C. and Camden Yards....(5 night stay). The staff was very friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was great ~ variations each day and plenty to choose from. We were delightfully surprised to have Tues/Wed/Thursday buffet dinners....stuffed shells, hamburgers, Philly cheese steaks....what a time and money saver to come back to the hotel and have a buffet dinner after a busy day of sightseeing! The suites were comfortable and nicely designed for a family or party of 4. The pool was nice and the grounds were inviting. We would return to this hotel again if we were in the area and would recommend it to friends and family.
