My wife and I recently had dinner at the Easton Hotel, Md. We found the service to be hospitable and professional.. We enjoyed the delicious dinner and appreciated the fact that the dinner menu include "lite fare". It is definitely a place we will return for dinner.

Planning is very important.We contacted management approx. 3 months in advance to receive special rates for 9 rooms ( 5 couples stayed 3 nights and 4 couples 4 nights).

I wrote to the management, after we stayed here for our anniversary, but it was never acknowledged. Therefore, I will write it here. The desk personnel were courteous and efficient. The rooms were small, and upon our request, we were given a somewhat larger room, from which we heard street traffic passing all night. The restaurants food was average for...

We stayed at the Tidewater for one night in August 2012. The bad: Upon entering our bathroom the first thing I noticed was a hair on the floor.

Our beds were quite comfortable, the rooms were immaculate, and there was a fun atmosphere as a wedding was taking place inside, and a street concert by the US Navy was taking place outside. We enjoyed our stay, and our dog was welcome.

The Tidewater Inn is a great place to stay if you are in the Easton area. They made us feel very welcome and helped solve any question or issue. As a restored and updated property built 100 years ago, keep in mind the rooms will be small, but adequate. The bathroom is up to date, but again small by today's...

Let me start by saying I love how charming this place is. The room was spacious and had a king bed. The breakfast buffet (included with our deal) was really good. However, I would not stay there again unless they fixed some key issues. The pillows were cheap and thin. Even with using 3 pillows I did not sleep well....
