“Pretty straight forward hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

This hotel is kind of hidden away, which is not necessarily a bad thing. It's in a semi-residential area and quite pretty. I was pleased with the appearance of the hotel itself, though the walls were quite thin. I was lucky in that I was at the end of the hallway with no neighbor on the one side.

The rooms have pretty much everything you'd need: microwave, refrigerator, comfy bed, and clean. The location is great: midway between Baltimore and Washington. Only 7 miles from BWI too!

I needed to visit some customers in the Baltimore area but did not want to stay in the downtown area. I found this hotel and it was a great choice. It is only 15 minutes from the Baltimore/Washington airport, out in the suburbs, and had 4 restaurants sharing the parking lot, plus a in house dinning area and bar. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean. They have K-cup coffee makers, which for me is awesome! None of the little mis-shaped packet brewing which always makes weak coffee. So for me to have a full fledged cup off coffee in a clean and quiet room is all I could ask out of a hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet, but odd numbers face east so early morning sun blasts you...

I stay at these properties regularly, and by choice. This one met the standards for Hilton Garden Inns in cleanliness, amenities, and staff. My only complaint was that the breakfast "buffet" was somewhat sparse and without a toaster until a guest asked for one, the coffee really awful (brown water, essentially), and the scrambled eggs greasy. Not what I'd expect for $11 plus tax and tip. I've never had that experience before at a Hilton Garden Inn, and it won't stop me from staying at HGI again.

Overall a nice hotel with a nice lobby area that seemed to have been updated in last year. Rooms were above average, but very noisy! We stayed 3 nights and were pleased with the location, but there were not many logistical options. Had to get Taxis and they were pretty high priced. The staff was great.

The hotel is conveniently located near freeways and there are two good restaurants located across the street. The lobby and rooms are clean and well-maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful. Would recommend for buisness and leisure stays.

Room was above average and clean, which was a pleasant surprise. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was no complimentary breakfast though (for the rate I paid-$189+tax, I would have expected it). They also could use an updated HVAC system for the rooms--the thermostats were quite outdated and hard to get just the right temperature.

This hotel is very centrally located to major highways, and stores including Wegmans supermarket which is fantastic when traveling on business. Staff was helpful and ensure my stay was the best they could give me. In the King Size rooms, they offer the sleep by number beds which you can adjust to you liking. I think it takes a time to adjust, but bed was very comfortable. Room was very spacious and offered refrigerator, and coffee maker. Didn't try the restaurant but was always busy during breakfast.
