After a three day conference in Arlington, VA my husband and I stopped over in St. Michaels for some quality time. A friend of mine kept telling me about St. Michaels and I am glad we went...charming place.
Let me say this, the Harbour Inn was not my first choice. I was very skeptical of the hotel because it has like 11 terrible reviews, so usually that's a red flag. However, there is not a lot of hotels/inns in downtown St. Michaels so you don't have that much to choose from. There are plenty of Bed and Breakfasts but I wasn't really in the mood for a BnB.
So what we did once we got to St. Michaels is drive around to all the hotels and see what deals they had available. So we didn't make any reservations ahead of time; this was truly a spur of the moment thing.
What we did find out is that the "Inn at Perry Cabin" is the best hotel is St. Michaels, however it very expensive (too expensive for the area) and we were only staying for one night and I didn't want pay $295 a night.
I didn't like the way Harbourtowne Golf Resort looked from the outside and the Best Western is not in the main town of St Michael's.
So last stop was the Harbour Inn. The location is excellent. Right in the heart of town. Walking distance to everything. The outside and lobby of the hotel is well maintained. So before I booked our stay there I asked to look at the room first. I opened a door to a roomy, clean, spacious king size suite that had a kitchen and fabulous waterfront view with a balcony. You can tell its an older hotel but they try to maintain the room the best they can. This was a no brainer, I booked the room.
They have complimentary bicycles if you want to ride into town, one free movie to order and other deals like free parking. There is no Internet in the room but you can use the computer in the lobby. Staff was super nice and friendly.
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here and would stay again. But it was a gamble because the bad review did scare me, but it could be the fact that we went during the off-season and didn't encounter the same negative issues....thank goodness.
