“Exceptional Experience, Wonderful surrounding, Fantastic Staff, best time I ever had and ever will have again.”
Reviewed February 12, 2010

During the worst snow storm ever experience on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, the staff at this hotel could not have been better. They went above and beyond all expectations. They cleaned cars off, , chipped in for a dinner buffet that was brought over to the hotel by a local restaurant.

There are not enough compliments that I can give this hotel, the crews, management, rooms, maids went above and beyond. I look forward to many more nights at this gem of a hotel.

The staff was more then great they were the best. We stayed during the blizzard and had the best time and was treated with the best service we ever could have had. Miki, Steve, and of course Eric were the greatest. They worked endlessly to make the very best out of what could have been a very bad event. Thank you everyone.

Not exceptional but good. A bit dated here and there but perfectly acceptable. We have stopped here several times so we can go to Annie's or Harris Crab Shack for dinner. At Annie's try the crab soup and at Harris go for the crabs. Have fun ripping the crabs apart.

We stayed at this hotel on Kent Island for just one night after a wedding in the area, and it was a good property (standard for a HI Express). The hotel overlooks the Kent Narrows and Chesapeake Bay, so you have a terrific view from rooms on the water side of the property.

It's very convenient to US-50, and it's only about 5-10 minutes from the Bay Bridge.

The only real drawback we found was that it has thin walls. We could hear our neighbors quite a bit.

We had been staying the week in the Outer Banks of North Carolina when a hurricane forced us out early. We had to leave at 1:30 AM or face contending with the storm. Worried about a very long drive back to Pennsylvania through the night on only 3 hours of sleep, we called the Holiday Inn Express Kent Island to ask if we could check in very early Saturday morning (7:30 AM). Eric, the General Manager, was so very accomodating. He wished us well and made sure we had a place to rest our weary heads once we pulled into town.

I just can't say enough about how accomodating this hotel is. This was our third stay in two years and every time has been perfect. The entire hotel is very clean, the staff is wonderful, and the location is better than ideal. Our party consisted of my wife and I, our two little kids and my parents. We all enjoyed our stay. The pool is wonderful, the breakfast is satisfying and saves us money every time we go, the kids love the popcorn machine in the lobby during the evening, free high-speed wireless internet is awesome, there is a public computer and printer in case for your use (we print out coupons from the internet for local attractions), and the location on Kent Island affords us the opportunity to take nice long leisurely strolls along the waterfront. And you can easily and quickly walk to some of the best restaurants and bars on the Chesapeake Bay right from the hotel (Harris Crab House, Annie's Paramount Steak & Seafood House, The Crab Deck, Fisherman's Inn, Red Eye's Dock Bar, etc). Plus the hotel made even more improvements this year. It's apparent Eric and his team continue to invest back into their hotel.

To give you an idea of how ideally located this hotel is, here is the approximate distance to local attractions:

- Sandy Point State Park (public beach, boat rentals, fishing, crabbing, playground, biking): 15 minutes
- Annapolis (City Dock - downtown): 25 minutes
- Baltimore's Inner Harbor: 55 minutes
- St. Michael's: 45 minutes
- Washington DC: 55 minutes

The bottom line is I highly recommend this hotel. It's a great value with great staff and is ideally located for a perfect vacation.

The hotel and room was very clean, nice furnishings througout. This place gets alot of traffic so you have to hand it to them in doing a good job keeping it up. Very nice cherry and helpful staff. Breakfast was just fine , very good, and something for everyone. Even though it looks further on the map, it is very close to walk to the restaraunts and marinas on either side of the bridge. There are paved walking paths to the Red eye, and to the other side of the bridge. The good thing about this location is that it is away from the action if you want quiet, but very close to walk it. The pool area is clean and the back of the hotel is serene, on the water. IF you get out there very early you can see all kinds of wildlife. Oh and there is a nice deck out back overlooking the water with dining tables if you want to eat or have drinks outdoors at the hotel. I will stay here again !

After a long trip we arrivied on the island. We had a little bit of a tough time locating the hotel at first we didn't see the sign but were pleased to realize it was located back away from the road and just a walk away from a few restraunts. We had a nice sized room with a king size bed. The bathroom was great the shower and water pressure in it was very relaxing! We were kinda disapointed that there was no fridge in the room. Very nice play to stay after checking in we had a nice walk to dinner to Harris Crab House and along the water. The only thing would have changed would have been to have a waterfront room it would have been well worth the cost to wake up to the sunrise on the water! Nice hotel would stay there again.
