“Great place on weekends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Always stay here when I'm in town for the weekend. Too expensive during the week. Good complementary breakfast. Great rooms with lots of space and amenities. Quiet, and convenient to several good restaurants across the street.

This Columbia, Maryland hotel was a welcome, comfortable respite after touring DC and Baltimore, lying between the two cities. Excellent hotel suites with well thought out amenities, great breakfasts and dinners, professional & friendly management, and a quiet somewhat wooded, clean neighborhood. The shuttle has a 5 mi radius, which included the Dorsey train stn taking you to DC weekdays. Driving our rental car to Baltimore's Inner Harbor took a mere 20 minutes, and we could drive to Gettysburg and Amish Country within 1-1/2 hours as well. Only drawback was some noise from floors above, but this was minimal and staying on 4th floor eliminates the potential problem. Staff saw to our every need and we felt welcome and comfortable. Manager, Norman Eaton, was superb in his help both prior to trip and during our stay. Several restaurants are across the street and a nice grocery nearby, as well as shopping. We would definitely stay again if in the area. An exceedingly well-run hotel!

Homewood Suites are your home away from home. The fully functioning kitchen and comfortable living quarters make long stays enjoyable nad relieve the stress of having to go out for every meal. The suites are a bit cramped with too much furniture, but they are well appointed. Breakfast buffet and evening reception are a nice treat.

Homewood Suites in Columbia Maryland was a stop over on our way to Williamsburg, VA. Easy off/on 95. We needed accomodations for 2 adults and 3 teenagers (15,16,17). This was the only resort that offered 2 bedrooms (1K, 2Q, sofabed) and 2 full baths. They had reasonable rates which included breakfast. The suite was very clean. The bedrooms were large and comfortable. The heating and a/c was very loud and we had to turn off the ice maker in the refrigerator. It sounded as if rocks were being thrown at the wall. The size of the livingroom and kitchen area was a bit cramped but since we were only staying one night it worked for us.

We had another wonderful stay at this hotel. Upon our arrival, the check-in was fast and the staff was very friendly. The rooms were just as I remembered them; clean and well furnished. I will have to agree with some of the other reviews and say that the moving around from the guest above us was loud and seemed as if they were coming through the ceiling at any moment. Overall, the visit to this hotel was just what I expected and I was not disappointed. Will stay here again when I am in the area.

The bed was not comfortable for me (it was on the firm side). It was nicely furnished though. Not so quiet - could hear hallway doors slamming. The breakfast was pretty good, more food than most hotels I've been to. I didn't like that there was NO covered car area at the entrance, because we had to bring in all our luggage in the pouring rain and also their parked shuttle was in our way of being closer to the door. The staff was alright, not clear English in housekeeping. I am visiting the area again and am going with a different hotel.

I have stayed here twice on business. Both times, I discovered that Big Foot really does exist, and he stayed in the room above me! On my most recent stay, he also had a cold -- I could hear the coughing and nose-blowing.
Aside from the noise from the room above me, this place is pretty wonderful. The suites were very pleasant and accommodating with nice amenities. The bed was very comfortable and had lots of pillows. The suite had 2 large flat-screen TV's. Wireless internet worked well. Breakfast includes hot entrees as well as cereal, yogurt, breads, etc. They even have free dinner in the lobby!
NOTE: The hotel does not have a liquor license.

Room Tip: I will ask to stay on the top floor next time.
