“Great experience”
Reviewed December 17, 2008

We and our little dog just spent one night at The State House and would definitely return. The owner, Frances, was so helpful and accommodating. You could not ask for a better location, right in the center of Annapolis with all the great restaurants, shops and harbor within walking distance. We stayed in the Chesapeake Room - good size room. Price is so reasonable. Hope to go back soon.

I was booked to work at the US Naval Academy and had no real background on Annapolis before arriving.
The Academy booked this hotel or me and I'm very, very pleased that they did.
Arrived much later than originally expected, due to delays with United Airlines, and the owner - Maureen - had stayed up all night to let me in. She is a very kind and helpful Innkeeper, also offering me maps of the city and recommendations (including menus) of local places to eat.
A real star!
The hotel is in an 18th Century brick and wood house that sits directly opposite the beautiful State Capitol in the quiet and lovely historic centre of Annapolis.
My room looked out directly onto the garden and the Dome.
Great location!
Imagine an elegant US Congress building surrounded by stately oak and elm trees.
Fantastic breakfasts at this place, with an excellent selection of fruit, drinks, fresh bread, smoked salmon, parma ham etc.
The rooms are all big and have a dated but equally large bathroom ensuite. Frances - the Housekeeper - was as charming and as friendly as the rest of the hotel.
I can't recommend this place highly enough!

  • Liked — Service, location & food
  • Disliked — If I have to say something, then smoking rooms not available. Not a major gripe though!

Will return again. Very good large room (King George). Excellent service, hospitality and cleanliness. Can't beat the location. On State St. Circle and behind shops on Main St. Short walk to U.S. Naval Academy. Cost is very reasonable.

If you want to be in the heart of Annapolis and don't want to spend a fortune on your stay, the State House Inn is your best bet. With rooms starting just over $100 a night (not included all the state and local room taxes), the State House Inn is in the perfect location for touring all of Annapolis' historic areas. Maureen and her staff are most accomodating, giving a brief tour of the place upon your arrival, a map to know how to get around, a discount coupon for parking in the local lots, etc. There's even a mini fridge filled with water, sodas and drinks for your enjoyment (free of charge).

The rooms: ok, for $100 a night (two rooms are in this category and were our price point) in the heart of an historic city, it's pretty good. Comfortable beds and pillows, very soft linens, bright white towels fresh from the dryer. The rooms are a little dated, antiques a little worn, but it's all very easily overlooked. If you want high-style and a higher bill to pay, stay elsewhere. If you want charm and friendly service, you've come to the right place.

A continental breakfast is served each morning from 8-10 a.m., filled with cheeses, meats, croissant, danish, cereals, fresh coffee, tea, juice, jams, and lots of fresh fruit. Frances, staff at the Inn, not only gets the morning going with plenty to eat, but she heads of to the rooms between brewing pots of coffee to clean and freshen up for guests staying on or new guests arriving.

We'd stay here again, and that's more than I can say about most places!

Great Location; Friendly Staff; Clean; Comfortable Beds. Other than that, the place is an absolute wreck, furnishings and fixtures are broken, beaten and battered; Would never believe that location/exterior would harbor that kind of interior!! Imagine upper midwest rooming house 30 years ago.

Due to business in Springfield I stayed at this hotel. What a lovely hotel. Retro 60's decor with a flair, scrumptious breakfast buffet, friendly, professional staff, comfy mattresses, plush bathrobes, convenient to tourist attractions. Don, the bartender has a wealth of knowledge about the city. Drink coupon at check in for use in the No Name Bar was a nice surprise. This is the place to stay in Springfield.
