My boyfriend and I were looking for a cute inn near the water in Annapolis. We thought this property looked inviting. Unfortunately, there is nothing interesting about it at all. We had a room in the oldest building, and the mattress was lumpy, the sheets and towels were very poor quality, and the room was hot. We did find a small fan, but we could not open the windows because they lacked screens. For $220 a night, we felt we should have had a better room and experience. The breakfast was very, very basic too. And, the staff wasn't friendly. They weren't rude but not as nice as you would expect from a b and b. If you are looking for a romantic getway location, keep looking.

Dear murphydevil,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I'm sorry that you and your boyfriend didn't enjoy your stay with us. I'm happy to let you know that since your stay, we have changed ownership & fully remodeled the inn, replacing all the beds, carpets, sheets, and other features. Hopefully, you'll give us another chance if you visit Annapolis again.

Take care,
Meredith

Stayed here for a weekend getaway and was very disappointed to find that the "small things" that mean so much and make a bed and breakfast special were just not there. For instance, we did not receive a warm welcome upon arrival which set a bad tone right from the start. Water and soda are available in the fridge. We thought this was a nice touch until we were informed that you must pay $1 for each one. There were no toiletries such as shampoo/conditioner/body soap available. There was only a dispenser in the shower on the wall for these items similar to one in a public restroom. The room was clean but otherwise just adequate, nothing special. No tub, no fireplace, nothing fancy. Housecleaning did not come until 12:30 in the afternoon and we were getting ready to go out for the day after an early morning walk. When I asked the woman to come back in 30 minutes, I received a very rude huff and YEAH!!! Not how I would expect to be treated when paying over $220 per night. Location is excellent. Breakfast is simple - bagles, fruit, coffee, juice, cereal, and one misc. item. Overall, the stay was just OK and we were really let down and upset about spending so much per night for just OK. Unfortunately, this put a damper on the weekend.

Stayed in one of the few rooms in the oldest building/home that had a private bathroom. Was very enjoyable, as we were celebrating a 5 year anniversary with a one-night getaway from the kiddies.

The location was fantastic for ease of parking, easy to get to/leave from and walking distance from the main street/west street and Eastport.

The room was neat and tidy, tastfully decorated and furnished with antiques and comfortable in its accomodations and appointments. The parking for free in the courtyard area was a major bonus, since we could easily have spent $50 for garage parking overnight (we would have been over the daily max each day and spent $25 / day for Saturday and Sunday).

We were pleasantly surprised to find that the property is directly adjacent to the Naval Academy (the courtyard parking actually shares a brick wall along the backside of the lot with the academy). And, there is a pedestrian's visitors entrance to the academy directy next to the Inn.

Breakfast was simple, yet enjoyable: Some coffee, cereals, fresh fruit and bagels were my choices. I also tried some of the yummy yellow cake/orange flavored bundt cake/ring with a vanilla syrupy drizzle frosting.

Stayed the weekend of 02/01-03. The property is very clean and quaint. My room was comfortable. Parking on site was an added bonus. Breakfast was very simple (bagels amd muffins). Within easy walking distance to downtown and the Naval Academy.

My husband and I went to Annapolis for an Academy reunion. Two other couples, friends of ours, stayed here as well. We had a terrific time. The room where we stayed was clean and lovely, full of charm. The breakfast was not great, but I am not a breakfast person, so it didn't matter. The location was perfect. We went to several Naval Academy events on campus and it was a short comfortable walk, even in heels! I would definitely stay here again. If you like big chain hotels with room service, this place is not for you. But if you like an inviting inn with lots of character and charm, in a perfect location, stay here.
