First time at a Home2. It's an extended stay sort of environment that is just fine for a single night. I enjoyed it and will add the chain to my repertoire.
Their cleaning policy is posted on the mirror: They will do light cleaning each day and a thorough cleaning after your 5th night if you stay that long. They won't clean on weekends unless requested (assuming I read the sign correctly). I like the policy; it makes sense for a week's stay.
First the Cons for the White Marsh location:
The bathroom is a bit small; you have to step to the side to get the door closed and into the shower. However, the shower was a nice walk-in that was easy to use (but not great for bathing kids if that's needed).
There is poor noise insulation - I could hear neighbors close their blinds, walking in hallway, and children whining nearby. The room was generally quiet but I'm concerned that it was quiet because not that many rooms were occupied.
Pros (many more than cons):
nice rolling desk/table that can be moved out into the room
large work surfaces (other than the desk) for sorting or storing
blackout blinds that roll down, not curtains that won't close properly
many lights - I count eight including the kitchen area
Pros for the kitchen:
A nicely appointed kitchen for a suite-style hotel (dishes and flatware plus some cookware, toaster, cooking utensils, etc.).
Appliances include dishwasher, disposer, and mid-sized refrigerator with bottom freezer.
Also, an induction cooktop and skillet are available from front desk.
