Finding the hotel was easy, as was check in. In fact on the two occasions I had to visit the front desk the employees were very helpful and quick. The hotel seemed pretty empty; I suspect that was due to the time of year. Our Jacuzzi room was huge and clean. I would estimate that it was about 300-400 square feet. We had a king size bed, a couch, a big cushy chair, a coffee table, an end table, two bedside tables and a chest of drawers on which the TV was placed in addition to the usual refriderator, microwave, coffee maker, iron and ironing board. Everything worked except for one light bulb. The bathroom included a 4 foot deep jacuzzi tub, a stand up shower and a double sink and enough open floor space to park a car.
On the down side there was no pool and it seemed that their restaurant is closed at this time for whatever reason. The biggest problem, however, was the lounge appended to the hotel. They attract what seems to be everyone in Hagerstown Friday and Saturday night and they play music with strong, loud baselines until around 2am. Our hotel room was facing the lounge so our enormous window allowed in a lot of noise. I'd recommend asking for a room on the other side of the hotel. I can only assume that the lounge keeps the hotel financially stable during the off season, so they just let it run wild.
Overall a good hotel with a lot of potential obviously being held back by the economy and the fact that it is located in Hagerstown instead of Baltimore. You get the vibe that this place was the greatest hotel in town back in the 70s, but now it's just a pretty good place to stay in Hagerstown.
