“Average but served it's purpose”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

There are pros and cons to this hotel. If you want something close to the bars/restaurants of Kent Narrows this is about as close as you can get. The continental breakfast is really pretty good as far as they go. The pool area is nice and there is a nice pier on the water. The only drawback is that the hallways have a definite smoke odor as there are smoking rooms in the hotel. I noticed that the smoking rooms were close to the elevator which is why it was noticeable. Otherwise, a decent stay. The rooms were clean and the staff was helpful.

Room Tip: would advise a room at either end away from the smoking rooms if you are a non smoker.

This hotel sits on a beautiful piece of property overlooking the bay. Grab your free breakfast and your coffee and sit outside and take a deep breath and RELAX!!! This hotel is perfect for the price and the staff is very nice. The manager is very friendly and helpful. The lady that works breakfast is a gem.

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.

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.
