“Nice location very old and worn hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The staff is very positive and professional and they do offer a very nice breakfast. Hotel is old and shows it's age, carpet and furniture is old and worn. Very old and loose plumbing fixtures, tile grout in shower seems permanently stained (mold?). Very low water pressure at 8 am. Seems like they clean it as best as possible but room needed more than cleaning. Walls not soundproof, was able to here the TV in the room next to us through the wall when trying to sleep at night, as well as their alarm in the morning that woke me up. Disappointed there was not a small fridge in room to keep water cold. For the price paid it is certainly not a value. Many newer hotels 10 miles away that are 30% less in price it seems.

Overall its sort of what you expect - not exactly high end but clean and decently located near the core of St. Michaels.

Valerie helped us work through a quirky booking issue which really made a big difference in our stay, so I have to give props for service. This is the main reason for giving a "very good". I suspect that the other reviews about the need for updating are accurate based on what I saw elsewhere around the hotel.

We stayed here several years ago and found the accommodations just fine. A lot has changed. From weeds growing in the parking lot to hairs on the bathroom floor and bathroom fixtures badly in need of replacement - would not stay here again. A new owner needs to take over and fix this place up. What a shame to have a hotel in this beautiful area falling apart.

The accommodations in this hotel are striking - a sprinkling of hair on bathroom floor, a dash of high quality dust throughout the room and a scent that is reminiscent of the days of my youth when my parents required me to clean out their flooded basement. Other accommodations include a smattering of "antiques." For instance, the bed showed proper wear and sag for a specimen of at least 25 years and the furniture all showed the appropriate pitting, rust and wear that would befit furniture from the era known as the “1980s college dorm room period.” Also appropriate to the historical theme was a large box that pushed out warm air after certain groans and grunts. The purveyor of this fine establishment advertised it is as something called "air conditioning.” This unit served as a fine example of the rudimentary and often unreliable technology from the aforementioned period. Despite its age, the unit kept the room at a constant 85 degrees allowing the guest to appropriately moisten their skin with the consistent drip of perspiration.

This hotel provides an authenticate experience. Unfortunately, that experience is smelly, disgusting and uncomfortable.

Room Tip: Choose a hotel in nearby Easton or a bed and breakfast in St. Michael's

This hotel was juts what we expected. We wanted to explore st Michaels and the forecast was for excessive heat. Rather than taking a chance with a b&b that most likely wouldn't have air conditioning we could control, we had to choose staying here or paying big money for a high end hotel. We stayed here and paid an extra $5 for a king room. The room was not fancy, but it was huge and clean. The ac has a digital thermostat so we didn't have to play guessing games with that. It is about a mile from town, breakfast was a buffet that included scrambled eggs, sausage cereal fruit toast etc. Pretty standard for best western,

This hotel is "pet friendly." The people who come with their pets are put in the back section of the hotel, apparently. However, we were put in that section without informing us of this fact. In the next room there was a dog barking loudly every few seconds. Apparently the owners had left the dog in the room alone. We immediately asked to be put in another room. We were given another room, but the transfer required carrying our bags down to the car, moving the car and carrying our bags to the other room.

The rooms are very basic. Only a few towels are provided and the towels are very scratchy and unabsorbant.

Room Tip: If you stay here and do not have a pet with you, ask to be put in the front of the hotel.

Three of us (my wife, teen son and me) spent two nights while in town for a wedding. The motel is older, but well maintained. The room was nice enough, but somewhat cramped for three people. We relocated the small refrigerator from the clothes hanging area adjacent the sink to a location near the door. Staff were all friendly and helpful, and the included breakfast was a little above average because it includes waffles. Finding a working ice dispenser was challenging.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the rear building with interior corridors.
