After seeing very mixed reviews of the Solomons Holiday Inn Select at tripadvisor.com and other travel review web sites, I chose the Comfort Inn Beacon Marina for my President's Day weekend getaway (2/18/05-2/21/05). The hotel staff is very efficient and friendly - top notch. The hotel's restauant, located next door to it, is the Captain's Table. The Captain's Table is excellent, the food is very good, and the prices very reasonable - I highly recommend this restaraunt. The Comfort Inn's room decor is very basic and plain, but the recliner and bed were comfortable. However, the walls and ceiling (I was on the first floor) are very thin, every door closing, every footstep (especially running children) can be heard; not the best for a relatively light sleeper like myself. The hotel's location is very convenient to everything in Solomons, you can leave your car at the hotel and walk everywhere.
Other great Solomons restaraunts besides the Captain's Table are: The Naughty Gull, Stoney's, Solomons Pier, and Catamarans. But do not go to the CD Cafe. You'll wait a long, long time for your food. I ordered an egg/sausage wrap with a southwestern salad, and it was 35 mintues before my food arrived, and the wait staff acted like they could care less, that it was no big deal. Do not waste your money at the CD Cafe, take your business elsewhere.
