“Friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We take trip over to Kent Narrows a couple of times a year for a quick get-away and Holiday Inn Express is always a pleasant stay. The staff are very friendly and have a lot of information about the area. The rooms are always clean and while they do offer free Wi-Fi, they don't have any docking stations or computer connections in the rooms.

Looking for a great, affordable, waterfront hotel near Annapolis? This is a terrific option. You can't walk to the nearby restaurants that feature fabulous crab dishes and waterfront locations, but they are really close by and easy to drive to. The hotel has a nice location with a waterside pool, and all of the normal Holiday Inn Express amenities. Give it a try. You won't be sorry.

This hotel was very nice. It's rooms were clean, and the breakfast was delicious. Overall their were no problems at all. The staff even let us stay past the check out time❗❗❗❗. I'd recommend this hotel for a 3 night stay.

we are 'Rewards' customers and booked this on our trip home from a Baltimore family wedding....it was such a pleasant surprise that after having a great seafood dinner a short walk from the hotel , we tried to arrange to stay another night....however , the next hotel would not accomodate us (Rehoboth HIEX)...rules are rules , but I think the words 'Priority Member' should carry more 'cache'.Think it was because it was the rainiest June/July ever. The manager was the most amiable, accomodating person , made us feel like old friends,even though we arrived early , he personnally went and check a room that was his favorite to see if it was cleaned. The room had a great water view and it was very quiet,the grounds are very well kept and the back deck and dock were wonderful. It will be our regular stop when we get back that way.

Room Tip: rooms on the higher floors and in the back are the best,great view....sunrises and watercraft.

We had reservations to this hotel, even read the reviews before booking. However, we wish we would have made another choice. We arrived early enough to stay somewhere else, but the hotels cancellation policy is 4pm the day before arrival, so once you are there you are locked in to pay them.

The lobby area and the staff were ok. We were told coffee was available 24/7, went to fill my cup, no coffee. Went back down in an hour, no coffee. The entire second floor hallway had a terrible odor, horrible stains on carpet, and caused a gag reflex when we stepped off the elevator. The rooms were dated and worn, looks like they specialize in construction workers on extended stays. The beds were SOFT with no support.

Hard to believe they still have the Holiday Inn brand.

Just an over night stop on a trip, and this hotel was a pleasant surprize. A bit dated, but they more than make up for it with decent rooms, a great location, and super friendly staff. The location is right off the highway, and there are at least 6 great bars/restaurants right on the water. Definitely worth another trip for a few days. There is a small pool and grassy area, and a nice little dock that juts into the lagoon.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a water view in the back. It over looks a real nice little harbor.
