“Good, not great”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Pros: Excellent check in and very nice employees working at the front desk. Free Breakfast buffet was really wonderful with a nice selection of hot and cold foods. Rate was reasonable for the location. Quiet room.

Cons: Room was ok, decor dated. Could use some updating. Bathroom was SMALL!!! A/C unit was very loud, making it difficult to sleep.

Not a bad place to stay overall.

Stayed August 2013, traveled as a couple

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are happy that you had a good experience but disappointed that it was not a great experience. We will be getting new guest room furniture over the next year that should make a difference in room decor. We are sorry that your air conditioner unit was loud. If you could give me your room number we can have our maintenance staff check it. We always have spare units to replace the ones that are not working properly. We do appreciate your business and hope you will be our guest during your next stay in this area.

I was trying to find a place close to Annapolis without the Annapolis price tag, and the Comfort Inn in Bowie exceeded my expectations. For the price, the quality of the room was excellent. Everything was clean, modern, and the bed was very comfortable. During my stay the hotel was quite full, and as I was in a rush I couldn't wait in the line for breakfast in the morning, so I cannot comment on that, however the room itself, the location and the quality of the appointments were excellent. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone needing to be within a short drive (10-15 minutes) to Annapolis.

This hotel was probably one of the nicest choice hotels we stayed at. The check in was quick, the woman at the front desk was very nice. We had been given a room without a sleeper, in which we needed because there was 4 of us. Although the hotel seemed like it was full the situation was rectified quickly. The free breakfast was very good. Eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, waffles and all the usual breakfast items you would find at a continental breakfast

Check in was quick by very friendly staff members. The complementary breakfast has a large selection of items. The location is central to several malls and restaurants, and it is not too far from Washington DC.

I recently returned to this hotel for a function. There were several improvements this time, the hotel staff at the front desk were efficient, check-in was fast. Our room was extremely clean, spacious. I was in the 2nd Tower, it was very quiet. You did not have to wait very long for the elevators. Card access to the hotel was functioning so there is some security in the area, as well rooms have a safe in them. Pool area was very clean. There was a life guard for the pool area.
There is a large plaza behind the hotel, several restaurants within walking distance. Buffett breakfast was very good, eggs, bacon, lots of coffee, juices, fruit, breads and bagels don't know why anyone could complain about the breakfast and service by the lady who looks after this area. She deserves a tip from everyone. Check-out was great, fast, no problems. Thank-you.

Huge hotel that is in fairly nice condition. The rooms are dated but maintained decently. There were some stains on the wallpaper and couch but overall I did not feel like I was in a filthy room. Maintenance did an excellent job replacing an air conditioner that quit working but the musty smell omitted from the new one caused the small room to smell tremendously. Asked for a wake up call when the alarm clock didn't work and 1 time out of 3, they forgot to call. The pictures the hotel displays for the free breakfast are misleading. The food was below average. The employees were nice, but not real motivated....There were times I would stand at the front desk and the person working in the afternoon did not realize I was there until I spoke up.

Room Tip: Don't be alarmed at the amount of police cars in the parking lot. The police drop their cars of...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of our hotel. We are glad you were generally pleased with your stay, especially our housekeeping and maintenance staff. However, we are disappointed that you felt the room decor outdated and that the front desk was not friendly enough. We will take your comments into consideration for our upcoming room decor update and our front desk staff will be reminded about customer service requirements. We do thank you for your business and hope that we will be your hotel choice the next time you are in this area.
