I am struggling with this review, because there were a lot of positives to it. The people who work here from the front desk to the Cafe are really nice and personable. My room was very clean and well kept up. However, I was in the older part of the hotel and facing the parking lot. It had a balcony about 2 feet deep and it was dirty with a cigarette butt on it. No chairs out there as they would not fit. Room had a fridge which is a plus and you can but water, soda and snacks in the lobby.
When I say two personalities, there is nicer part of the hotel that had views of the courtyard and pool. The balconies had chairs and a table. I wish my room had been there. The hotel told me to ask for one of those rooms for my next visit.
Although the Cafe can get the job done for a quick dinner if you don't want to drive, there is nothing in the area that you can walk to. Again, not a real negative, just wanted to include it in my review if you don't have a rental car.
It was blistering hot when I was there so I did not even go out to the courtyard but it had a very nice seating area and pool.
I will definitely stay here again when I am traveling on business and ask for a room that faces the courtyard.
My last comment is that there is not a hotel shuttle. I took a cab from BWI and it was a horrible experience. Make sure you pull up your GPS to ensure the cab driver is not taking you the long way. Mine was very deceptive, he barely spoke English and was very argumentative when I spoke up as I realized what he was doing.
