Stayed at this hotel for 1 night as Part II of a 'Hotel Hopping' weekend. Although it was Superbowl weekend in Baltimore; all remained quiet. The hotel is truly older and could do with some updating. The person at the front desk presented as efficient and courteous perhaps as a part of her job description. Genuinity may have suffered. There were some "nice" touches within the Lobby area as: dispenser with some type of lemonade/orangeade, candy, apples in a bowl on a coffee table. The lobby can be considered pleasant and lends itself to wanting to sit around for a while to relax. The room however was a "let down". My thoughts upon entering were: dank, dark, stuffy, old. Upon inquiring I was told the layout of all the rooms was the same. The phone too, appeared to be not working since I could not reach the front desk but rather had to take the elevator. After quietly contemplating whether to stay or check out; and opting for the latter, a gentleman asked whether he could be of any help. I explained my thoughts about the "dingy feeling" of the room (did not mention the stale, stuffy smell). He offered me a change of rooms. I decided to go ahead and stay since there was already some snow on the ground and it was cold outside! Afterall it was only for 1 night. The new room was on the 4th floor and did not have any unpleasant smell to it. Of course it lacked much lighting; but that is because they use lamps in certain areas; rather than lightbulbs. There however was a visible long streak of dirt on the mirror in the tiny sitting area which must have been missed for some time by the cleaning staff. The kitchen area was tiny with a mini refrigerator and older microwave (you have to turn the knob). Although there were real mugs; there was neither dishwashing liquid, paper towels, sponge or anything to wash/dry with. In fact there were paper plates( a grand total of 2) with no cutlery (not even plastic forks/spoons). Unsure whether this was an oversight or if it is the norm. I had never experienced a kitchen/kitchenette in a hotel having paper plates so that was new to me. Nowhere in the unit was there any kind of facial tissue (bathroom or on the nightstand). Did not bother to call down to the front desk since at that point I hoped to return to that hotel only under duress. There is a small pool area with depth up to 4 feet. The lifeguard on duty is a nice touch and there are towels for use in the pool area.
We ordered out that evening....had some great tasting Wings and Pizza from the Deli attached to a Restaurant on Hammonds Ferry Road. I believe its Olive Grove or something like that! Prices were reasonable too. Breakfast bordered on being semi continental with a waffle station for a choice of blueberry or vanilla waffles. The coffee was pretty tasty. There were some hard boiled eggs, cold and hot cereal choices, sausage patties (pork and turkey) as well as bagels, bread and muffins The eggs was truly soooo processed! OOps I forgot the tv channels are free with HBO as the prenium one.
