Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

If you want to experience Annapolis, a great walking city, this is the place to stay. We had a room on the second floor of the Maryland Inn. This old, but refurbished, inn is in the heart if town, steps to the capital, state house, many restaurants, the harbor and shops. (Half a block from Annapolis the Ice CreamCream Company!) The only thing missing in the room was a coffee pot, but in the morning excellent coffee was available in the lobby. Valet parking from the main office at the Calvert House, a few blocks away was efficient and better than trying to park ourselves in town. We never had to wait more than a couple of minutes for our car. We will definitely stay here whenever we come to Annapolis.

Dear Bettia;

Thank you for posting your feedback on TripAdvisor. I was delighted to read that you found our location to be excellent, that the valet service was efficient, and that there were so many things to see and to enjoy while in the Historic District of Downtown Annapolis. I’m also very glad you enjoyed the lobby coffee!

We appreciate your feedback and want to be your hotel of choice when you visit Annapolis. See you soon.

We had a wonderful stay at the Maryland Inn. We checked in at the Governor Calvert House and they gave us great directions to the lovely Inn. Our room was small, but that is to be expected in an historic hotel and it was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the views of the Capitol Building from our room and the lovely decks on the 1st and 3rd floors. The customer service was great and they had excellent lemonade in the lobby!

Thank you for your comments; I apologize for the tardiness of my response. I was delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay and that you found our lemonade – we are now moving to hot apple cider – to be refreshing for you. I am so glad you enjoyed the Maryland Inn and found its location in downtown and relative to the Calvert House to be convenient.

We appreciate your patronage and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Stayed at the Robert Johnson House property and really appreciated everything about it. We had a very comfortable Queen Room. Room was not as large as many hotels but it wasn't cramped and had all the conveniences you'd expect.
Where else do you have a view of the State Capitol building and Governor's Mansion on a quiet historical circle? Where else are you steps around the corner from Main St shopping, restaurants, and bars too? Where else can you walk along quiet quaint streets past centuries old homes and sites for 5 minutes to a harbor and board a boat for a days ride or sail on the Chesapeake Bay?

Room Tip: This is an old building so there is air conditioning incorporated in an interior wall of each room...

Dear Tigman2:

I apologize for my delay in responding to your feedback. I was delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you so enjoyed your room in the Robert Johnson House. Annapolis very much a “walkable” city and our hotel’s location is ideal for visitors who want to see the Historic District.

We appreciate your business and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

There are actually 3 hotels under one reservation system. We stayed at the Maryland Inn, described as the "crown jewel." If this was the best one, I would hate to see the other two! The rooms (we had two as the first had numerous plumbing problems) were very dark. The carpeting and furniture were beat up and did not look clean. I did not want to walk barefoot on the floor nor sit on the furniture. The window air conditioners ran constantly. Although there is an elevator, there are steps that must be negotiated to get your luggage to the room. The bell men are busy shuttling cars around and were not that anxious to help with the luggage.

That said, if you want to stay in the historic district there are few other choices--only a couple of small B&Bs and the Marriot, which we did not check out. Parking is impossible so if you don't stay in the district you end up taking a shuttle bus to and fro. Perhaps this is why the Historic Inns remain so popular.

Room Tip: Tell the reservation agent if you have trouble with stairs.

What we didn't realize when we made the reservation was that they have multiple buildings. Once we checked in we had to drive with the bell boy so he could park our car...a little strange. The hotel was not thet clean considering the rates we paid. Annaplis is a beautiful city and the hotel is in a great location; just a short walk from the shops, restuarants and the Naval Academy.

Dear Badrock27:

Thank you for your feedback on your stay. While I was glad to read you enjoyed our location I was disappointed you felt the hotel was not clean enough and I apologize for that. I will share your feedback with our Executive Housekeeper.

With regard to us having three buildings we will continue to reinforce this through our website verbiage on our home page, through emails and conversations. We work very hard to be very specific and “upfront” about this and will continue to be so. Thank you for your comments in this area.

Althiugh the service staff at the front desk were generally helpful and apologetic, the overall experience has been poor and although I have booked 7 nights and paid through Hotels.com I am seriously considering to find another hotel. They put us in Maryland inn. The 1st room they have us was so small we had to ask for another. The 2 nd room had dirty sheets sawdust all over one wall and a bathroom door that couldn't close. A staff came and brough fresh bed sheets but it was obviously he didn't know how to make the bedding. When we returned today to the room, the sawdust remained. The towels looked old ans the aircon is noisy and old There is no newspapers and no carparking. While checking in at Calvert, you need to bring out own luggage to the assigned inn. Overall most disappointing.!

Dear Su8108:

Thank your feedback. I am sorry that you did not have a pleasant experience while at the Historic Inns and I appreciate your comments. We work diligently with third party agencies such as Hotels.com to ensure they know what room types are available through their website and will continue to do so.

I will share your comments with appropriate members of my team as we obviously made a mistake in your room assignments. Thank you for telling me; we will do better.

If you are a fan of historic buildings converted to upscale hotels, then we highly suggest staying at the Historic Inns of Annapolis. The rooms were clean, well maintained and distinct. We specifically stayed at the Maryland Inn, right on Main St so it was very convenient to access the main thoroughfare of shops/restaurants that make up historic Annapolis.

The only 'odd' part of our stay had to do with the service provided. You see, the 'historic inns' are represented by three different buildings, located in three different locations of the historic area. Check-in and valet are only located at one building - the Calvert building. The other buildings are pretty much not staffed or minimally staffed - from what we could tell. So if you were staying at the Maryland Inn, like we were, you have to drive to the Calvert Building, check-in, then drive to your hotel and meet the valet/bellman there. It was a very odd setup and ultimately seems inconvenient for the guest.

Bottom line - if you want a 100% great experience, book at the Calvert house. That way you don't have the play the game of finding where your room is :P

Room Tip: Book at the Calvert House to avoid unnecessary runarounds by the staff.
