This hotel saved my bacon after another one in the area proved too scary to stay in (see my other reviews for a clue as to which one). I really don't understand why anyone wouldn't want to stay here. It's directly across the street from a Target store, and near a Trader Joes, Barnes and Noble, Subway Sandwich etc. It's also right off I-695, making it insanely easy to reach.
Despite my last-minute reservation, I wound up in a HUGE first-floor room that had obviously been recently renovated. It was incredibly comfortable, with good ventilation, good light-blocking shades, and a bed I can't seem to get out of. The room opens onto a neat sort of central patio area, with a gigantic and very clean swimming pool. There was plenty of free parking and free WiFi, which connected immediately and with a strong signal.
I thought the staff were really good. I got locked out of my room at one point (long story involving trapping curtains in door) and they were great about helping me out. I kept stopping by the desk to chat, since my room was located nearby, and they were all really uniformly friendly and helpful.
This venue is only about two miles from Pimlico Racetrack, site of a popular yearly music festival. I'll be back, probably about this time next year. I thought the prices were pretty reasonable for the area, too.
