There are really not enough words to explain how much I love this place. I stayed there to celebrate my 44th birthday walking around Harbor East and Fells Point, sipping wine, and reading. Everything was perfect - from the complimentary Baltimore-themed gift I received, to a well-appointed, clean, comfortable and spacious suite. The Inn is close to pretty much everything,... More

"Don't believe everything you read...." - Your grandmother; "...except for this review." - Me You're going to find reviews on here that say how "...the walls were different colors." And other criticisms of that sort. That paints (no pun intended) a picture that this place is a slum- DON'T BELIEVE THAT FOR ONE SECOND! This inn is exactly what it... More

Best hotel I've stayed at!! The rooms were spacious and comfortable with a nice couch/tv area. There were plenty of channels available and apps like Netflix so evenings were very enjoyable! The bathroom was huge and comfortable and everything was very clean. Service was wonderful and very kind. I would love to come back!

I wanted to get a nicer than usual hotel room for my boyfriend's 30th birthday and I appreciated the ecofriendly angle of this hotel. I was shocked by what we found. Not only were the conceirges completely unprepared to present Baltimore (they didn't have maps on hand?), but I knew we weren't in for the luxurious stay I thought we... More

I have only written one prior hotel review - that was for a small boutique hotel that I love in Paris and is spectacular. This hotel experience unfortunately merits a review, albeit not a good one. When we arrived, we waited twenty minutes for someone to show up at the desk to check us in, (no phone number to call,... More

This boutique and unusual hotel has a lot of potential, but it’s not quite there yet. The rooms are huge and the beds are comfortable, but the large windows are tinted green, which casts an unpleasant light throughout the room. I’m not sure why the tint, but it’s not working, and it creates a kind of unpleasant feeling every time... More

Stayed here with my fiancee while traveling and it went well. Beds were very comfortable and the hotel room seemed more home like. Loved the Jacuzzi!! Guest service agents seemed friendly especially the guy during check out who referred us to the organic restaurant in the lobby. The con about this place was the fact that you cannot change the...

Should I even write a review of my favorite under the radar hotel? Maybe I should keep this fantastic place to myself. I first visited here a few years ago. I was on a road trip without a firm plan and decided to stay in Baltimore longer than I thought. Somehow I came across this place and decided to give... More

Concrete floors leaves a cold, unwelcoming feeling. This a converted apartment/condo complex with old washer/dryer hookups and pipes in the floor. My wife like it. I, husband, hated it. But don't let that dissuade you. If you're into new age nontraditional paint scheme (on floors & walls) and you don't mind cold concrete floors this place is for you. I... More
